This week's look comes from the ever-stylish and creative folks over at Anthropologie. Their catalogs and website are chock-full of inspiration, and I love exploring their unique take on design. Fun fact: Anthropologie is based right here in my home of Philadelphia! They have a really cool campus in the southern part of the city and it's just as amazing as you're imagining in your head.
I happened across today's inspiration for this installment of Get the Look over on Pinterest and was immediately drawn in by the variety of styles going on in this dining room. I had a hard time coming up with a way to describe the overall look, but landed on the idea that it has some hints of traditional design along with an eclectic mix of others - including mid-century modern, glam, and Moroccan/boho. Anthropologie has mastered the art of the mix and I'm definitely feeling inspired!
And while you could simply shop Anthropologie for just about everything pictured and recreate pretty much the exact look you see, where would the fun be in that? Plus, if you've ever shopped Anthropologie's home department, you've probably noticed it can get pretty pricey pretty quickly. My goal for today was to find look-a-like pieces that offer a similar look and feel, but that don't break the bank.
Now let me show you how you can get the look of this dining room for your own home! Scroll on down to see the pieces I chose, and then read a little bit about why I decided on these particular ones:
Black & White Printable Art | Copper Pitcher | Navy & Brass Campaign Dresser | Set of 3 Brass Vases | Brass & Glass Pendant Light Fixture | Mid-Century Modern Wood Candlesticks | White Lacquer Tray | Mid-Century Modern Wood Dining Chairs | Faux Marble Round Pedestal Dining Table | Round Moroccan Rug
I loved the combination of navy, white, gold, and natural wood and wanted to be sure I included pieces that fit that color scheme. In addition, the small doses of black in the art and rug add a touch of sophistication that finish off the look. The navy campaign dresser really sets the tone and is a showstopper for the space. I would purchase two of these to create one longer credenza-style piece. They'll provide great storage and have a big visual impact! I love using dressers in unconventional areas - who says they should only live in bedrooms? :)
A classic round pedestal table works really well in small spaces - this one comes in several different sizes, and its faux marble top makes it more affordable (though when possible, I'd choose real marble over faux in a heartbeat). Adding in the natural wood chairs and round moroccan style rug makes the room feel cozy, warm, and inviting.
Rather than a chandelier, I love the use of a brass and glass pendant. It doesn't take up too much space, but provides functional light and draws your eye up to make the small area feel larger.
And finally, let's talk about the accessories. Notice how there are a lot of different materials and textures going on? Those are the finishing touches. I picked out a few items to highlight, but you can always add in other items that you already have to make it uniquely you. It's hard to go wrong on these as long as you love what you have! Enjoy the process of bringing things in and swapping things out!
So tell me, what's your favorite part of this dining room? I've got my eye on that navy textured campaign dresser and that polka dotted wall art!
