NOLA Anthropologie

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. We took a mini vacay to NOLA this weekend and had a great time relaxing. I definitely loved being away from my computer for a few days.

In August Anthropologie opened in NOLA and this was my first chance to check it out. They took over the spot Pottery Barn once held and totally recreated the space. I could have easily spent hours in the store while taking photo after photo. Instead I had a limited amount of time and felt the need to covertly capture images. I thought I'd share a few with you...

They had really cute, creative holiday displays...

Even the staircase was unique....

I loved the display case filled with peach colored boxes. There were so many items I picked up hoping to purchase that were marked: "prop."

This funky P&S photo doesn't capture the beauty of this chandelier. It was wrapped in thick rope. I bet this would be an easy DIY project!

This display of lovely colored mittens was just darling. Replicating this in a child's room would be sweet...

I really, really, really wanted to take this desk home. The sawhorse/artist table was to die for! I wonder if I could get my hubby to construct something similar that I could splatter with my own paints over time?

Even the "shopping carts" at Anthro are chic. I loved these market totes but deliberately did not pick one up. I would have filled it in no time! Instead I limited myself to what my already busy hands could handle. :-)

I'll share more NOLA photos soon. Hope you've had a great week!


  1. all so cool. the mittens are adorbs.

  2. Looks like a fun place to get in trouble in!

  3. love Anthropology.

    Great covert pics! :D

  4. Anthropologie does no wrong when it comes to design. I love their stores! Too bad the closet one to me is about 45 minutes away. Boo!

  5. I know what you mean - I live and die for Anthropologie! When I was getting married I was trolling the wedding blogs and the woman who designs all the Anthropologie windows was planning her own wedding at the same time, it was amazing! They color coded all the tables, the decor was vibrant and unique, and it was one of the most beautiful/interesting/hard to replicate weddings I've ever seen!
