Ready for Spring

Lately the weather has been pushing 70 degrees here in New York, and even though today is 55 and rainy, we could not be more excited for spring! Here are some ideas for a pretty garden (indoors or out), to help tide you over until the flowers start to bloom.

1. Lily Pad Armchair, Terrain;  2. French White Painted Planter, Mecox Gardens;  3. Acacia Vine Obelisk, Terrain;  4. Heritage Watering Can, Terrain;  5. Lilla Planters, Crate & Barrel;  6. Greenside Planter, Anthropologie;  7. Heritage Garden Hose, Terrain

And now on the Upper East Side…

Tristan often talks about how much she loves Anthropologie. Their house and home section is adorable and they always have a great variety of furniture, objects, and even kitchenware. Happily for us, a new Anthropologie has opened on the Upper East Side. Elizabeth went to check it out and came back with these photos of the space:

The dramatic double-height ceiling here (this was the old Loews movie theater on 72nd and Third, after all) allows for some striking installations, like this cascading neon sculpture.

We love how the store used different construction materials, like repurposed wood and glass.

The vegan-friendly version of the animal trophy motif!

We love this whimsical candelabra. It would make a great centerpiece!

These ceramic "cartons" are a colorful and playful take on an everyday item that's sure to brighten any kitchen.

There is also always the website. And for those of you who need a visual, Tristan made a collage of a room decorated exclusively with Anthropologie items. The best part is, every item is available online!

curtains, wallpaper, rug, mirrored candle sconce, love seat, coffee table, accent table, lamp, teacup, bowl, vintage books & case

Visit the new store on Third Avenue between 72nd and 73rd streets for more great finds!
