Anthropologie, Spring Windows: A Fresh Idea for My Own Front Door


Anthropologie's Spring window displays are absolutely splendid.

They immediately capture your attention...
calling you to study closer.

They evoke thoughts of warm sunshiny days,

and awaken the desire to skip off with a picnic basket
to the lake while wearing the sweetest butter-yellow sun dress.
(Or does that just happen to me? Either way, their marketing works!)

And all of this is achieved through the use of plastic bottles.
Wow.

They've even offered instructions so that we can recreate the look ourselves.

I see a spring wreath in my future!

oh, I LOVE Anthropologie. We just recently moved to CO and they don't have a store anywhere near here...so very sad. I do get to drool over their catalogs, but it's just not the same. Thanks for posting...can't wait for Spring!

Can you tell me which Anthropologie store this was featured at? I just took a picture of a very similar display at the Anthropologie store at the Galleria in St Louis MO on Monday. The one I took looked like an underwater display in a beach house setting. I Love it!!!
