Anthro’s home aesthetic is in general a bit on the precious side for me, but I also didn’t have any problem finding items that I wanted there, so go figure. Maybe I’m getting precious or maybe I’m wrong about them. In any case, I thought these bowls would be great for pasta, which is about 80% of what I’m eating these days.
Clare Vivier has a collab going on right now with Anthropologie, and it includes some really cute pieces, like these bright, happy travel mugs. I especially like the green one with the tiger.
My podcast partner Tally mentioned in our most recent episode that she’s started journaling ever since we’ve all been on lockdown, and I think that’s such a smart idea. One of these Clare Vivier journals would be a really nifty way to incorporate that into your life, if you were so inclined (of course you could also just type into your computer, but there’s something so nice about an actual journal).
Now would be a really, really good time to finally transform my extra bedroom (a.k.a. the most expensive storage space in all of Manhattan) into a nice home office, and so I’m thinking of ways I could pull that off stylishly, starting with this neato perpetual block calendar.
Nowhere is my inability to choose one home design aesthetic and stick with it more apparent than in my taste in vases, it turns out. The ones I’ve chosen here are truly all over the map, but I do think they’re also all pretty good, starting with this fun, poppy yellow polka-dotted number.
This one has a distinct millennial vibe, but we won’t hold that against it.
I own a brass vase like this one from Hawkins New York, and aside from liking the way it looks, I really appreciate that it’s unbreakable.
