I ran into the store because I had gotten to the mall a few minutes before 10 and I was waiting for Urban Outfitters to open. Not one to waste time, I opted to run through Nordstrom's just to make sure I wasn't missing out on anything. It turns out I was!
There were a number of interesting and really cool individual displays, like this egg shaped seat from Free People. . .
But the real surprise came when I walked past the dressing room area! Normally department stores' dressing rooms are purely functional, not decked out with tons of color, texture, and cool furniture pieces!
I was in love with the gold snake skin wall paper! Or is that alligator? Either way- love, love, love. . .
The lounging area (yes, I said lounging area!) is very “Jonathan Adler.” It's a mostly black and white design coupled with vivid pops of color, uncommonly shaped furniture, and whimsical accents that make the space feel super fun and energetic!
Although I was a little disappointed by Anthro and Urban's displays this time around, they did have a few things that were different from the last time I was in town.
Most of us have seen window walls before, but I still love the look of them. I also love that the Urban display artist made this wall feel different by painting and etching different patterns on some of the glass.
I'm a fan of canopies over beds. I think they add such a romantic feel to a room. Anthro's all over have been showcasing different canopy ideas made from canvas drop cloths. Here's STL's take on the idea.
What a great look for a fashionista's home, right!?
If you visit Anthro regularly, you may have noticed there has been a focus on cardboard for some of their displays. I saw some cool ideas and this chandelier is definitely one of them.
No budget for design? Anthro is leaving you with no excuses! :) Cardboard can be found for free and I bet you guys could create some pretty amazing stuff with it! :)
Well, that concludes our post for today. Are your creative juices flowing? Mine are, so I'm off to create! 'Til tomorrow!
