By now I'm sure your copy of the July Anthropologie catalog is tattered, dog-eared, and chocolate stained. Maybe even spotted with drool? Mine is for sure, so I had to take to the InterWeb and swipe some images for these Outfit to Room pairings. It simply doesn't get better than this, folks.
At this stage I'm beyond matching only the outfit to the room. Because Anthropologie does such a brilliant job creating an environmental mood, I'm drawing inspiration from the image as a whole. My challenge? Create a seamless pairing that segues flawlessly from one shot to the next.
I'm utterly captivated by the dreamy, Atonement-esque sensibility here. It's unexpected to see deep hues, shadowy light, and velvets and paisleys in a July catalog, yet the effect is a complete success. I feel like I've been transported to a crumbling English estate on a lazy, hazy summer afternoon.
I wasn't kidding yesterday about papering my bedroom walls with a glorious pattern, so there's some major ideas to sink my teeth into here. I adore the impact of stripes paired with traditional florals, and I have some vintage French ticking pillows waiting for the perfect wallpaper mate!
This soft blue pairing has me longing for an airy retreat from my busy schedule. With everything on my to-do list lately, I'm trying to cultivate peaceful moments throughout the day--a walk around the block, coffee with a friend--and the soft mood here provides perfect inspiration for us all! Just two days 'til the weekend, everyone!
