You know Summer is on its way when Anthropologie has a whole host of beautiful new beachy homeware items in store and on the new arrivals section of their website. I am a huge fan of their nautical chic style and love nothing more than an amble around one of their colourful stores. I recently went to the King’s Road store and spent a good hour wandering around. Bliss!
As soon as I stepped into the main home ware section, my husband asked me if I had “deliberately dressed as all the home stuff?!” …no I answered, but he was right, I was wearing navy blue trousers, an electric blue top and scarf and my turquoise Mulberry over shoulder bag. I was an exact colour match to the new Spring/Summer 2017 range. I thought how clever of me and hoped that the camouflage would afford me a few extra minutes walking round the store because he wouldn’t be able to find me in it.
I really loved all the blue washed crockery, especially the irregular shaped shallow and elegant platters (for the ultimate nautical BBQ). There is enough turquoise to satisfy even the greatest of fans (me) and their new fabric prints are up to their usual quirky and brilliant standards; I literally could have taken it all.
While wandering, I noticed another amusing trend. The armchairs and sofas dotted around served a very good purpose…. to seat all the boyfriends/husbands who had been dragged into the store. On realising their visit was not going to be a short one, they had found refuge on said seating. I spotted at least 10 men resting their weary, over-shopped legs and it really amused me. Thank you Anthrapologie for being so thoughtful, I wasn’t nagged once and enjoyed not having a shadow lurking at every turn (…perhaps that was down to my camouflage gear, but thank you all the same for the man-seating).
Here are my top picks from their Spring/Summer 2017 home range…
