Spring has sprung, although the return of arctic temperatures has taken the shine off the lighter evenings just a tad. Still, the Anthropologie Print and Pattern Collection is just the injection of fabulous interiors inspiration I need to keep me going until it warms up again. I hope you think so too.
I can’t tell you how happy the room above makes me feel… I can’t stop looking at that amazing wallpaper and the pink and gold fringed chandelier is an absolute stunner.
In true Anthro style, their eclectic, colourful aesthetic tunes unerringly into the current trends – pink, green, fringes, rattan, modern metallics, large-scale foliage and blooms – take your pick. But they do it with such a light touch that these designs will easily stand the test of time and be equally at home in a contemporary or traditional setting.
Talk about a statement sofa. The Pied a Terre sofa is just one of the pieces in the collection from the studio of French textile designer Paule Marrot.

As with many of the room shots I feature here on the blog, I could happily live in the space above. Imagine a relaxed breakfast or lunch around this table. I love the serene acqua walls, those dreamy french doors letting in the spring sunlight, and the clean-lined sculptural dining table.
Star of the show for me, though, are the colourful Midnight Jasmine Elowen Dining Chairs, an artist collaboration with Emily Isabella.
New York-based artist Emily Isabella infuses her modern illustrations with expressionist and abstract undertones that recall the stirring works of Picasso and Chagall.
Here are a few more pieces from the collection that feature her work:
Above: more classic, Anthro boho-chic from their Spring 2019 Lookbook. The ditsy patterned chair above is just gorgeous, although I can’t find it in the product listings (maybe just as well).
You can find the entire Print and Pattern collection here. If a calmer, quieter palette is more your style, check out the Organic & Artisanal Collection as pictured below. It’s stuffed full of equally lovely things in neutral tones and natural textures. Choices, choices … happy Spring browsing.
