Happy Friday! I’m so happy the weekend is practically here! I’ve spent most of this week playing catch-up, but I did get to fit in a little fun along the way. I stopped in at Anthropologie in Fashion Island. It’s been a while since I visited in that store, since I usually go to the one at South Coast Plaza now. Well, their displays never cease to amaze me! I took a few pics of my favorite vignettes to share with you. I love the aged plaster walls they are showing with this grouping of antique–inspired mirrors. This look reminds me of the real aged walls of my favorite antique store in Savannah, Alex Raskin Antiques. And, that rug! Oh my!
Here’s another grouping of mirrors in this little room that has a more vintage tropical “Miami” look.
I love the look of this massive armoire filled with carefully arranged art and everyday dishes that are ready for the next table setting.
A pair of ladder-type shelves benefit greatly with a balanced approach to styling. The books are placed in a zig zagging pattern across the two shelving units, patterns and color are perfectly arranged and then the hanging ”fish hook” plants soften the whole look.
Here’s a really fun coastal dinner table look. It’s not totally beachy, but it definitely has a vibe that’s chic but casual.
Love the textures on this bed!
And, of course, their “shelfies” can’t be beat!
While at Fashion Island, I also popped over to K. Hall Studio. If you watch the Real Housewives of Orange County, then you may recognize this as Meghan King Edmonds new candle store. They had the opening party on the show. It’s a cute little store filled with books, candles and other pretty gifts. The styling in this store is darling too!
I also want to fill you in with the latest on the Newport Harbor Home Tour. This week I got to preview two GORGEOUS homes that will be featured on the tour on May 18th. The committee has been really hard at work finalizing all the details, and I can assure you, everyone will be amazed with the homes that have been selected. There'll be six home on the tour this year, and what’s really great is that all the homes are relatively close to one another, so there will be more time to see them all and more time to enjoy the luncheon, shopping at the boutique and the after party at Barclay Butera Interiors. Also new this year is a morning reception at the Balboa Bay Club!
