Moroso Collection

by Kate on October 5, 2015

anthologymag-blog-design-moroso-collection-1I was looking for some autumnal color inspiration the other day when I stumbled upon these stunning interior images from the Moroso furniture collection. These beautiful shots were taken in Patrizia Moroso’s home, which was designed by the incredible Patricia Urquiola. I love the eclecticism of this collection; the unusual colors and textures come together to make a really sultry palette. If you’d like to see more of the Moroso collection and their catalogue, you can visit the website here.

Karolin Schnoor Calendar

by Anh-Minh on September 30, 2015

ks_1I’ve been receiving PR emails regarding holiday products for weeks now. And while I don’t like to rush this part of the year—fall is my favorite season—one thing I do like to consider well in advance is my calendar. That’s because in the past, I’ve made the mistake of procrastinating and then the calendar I want ends up selling out. *sigh*

Well, that won’t be happening this year! London-based Karolin Schnoor recently let me know that she’s now accepting pre-orders for her 2016 calendar, which features a hand-drawn illustration and type. (Regular Anthology readers may recognize her work; Karolin has done illustrations for the print magazine.) I love that her design is a single-page calendar, so the entire year is all right there in front of you. No page-flipping required. And the black-and-white palette means it will work in any decor, which is especially great if you decide to pick one up as a gift.

Be sure to browse the rest of her online shop, which offers additional prints and other paper goods. You know, in case you aren’t quite ready to start thinking about 2016 yet! (But I should warn you: Karolin’s 2014 and 2015 calendars sold out. So get one while you can!)

DIY Plywood Floor Mirror

by Kate on September 25, 2015

anthologymag-blog-diy-amerrythought-2Mirrors are one of those home purchases that I am reluctant to make; they are often overpriced, and a lot of the designs I see are beautiful to be sure, but also a bit impractical. I love this simple floor mirror tutorial by Caitlin over at The Merry Thought because it’s attractive in an unfussy way, and super functional.

The full tutorial with images of the steps can be found on Home Free, and you can see more images of the finished design here. I’ve noticed Caitlin is an expert with simple wood projects, and am also a huge fan of her other floor mirror project and this simple daybed design. If you need inexpensive furniture pieces and like to do a bit of woodworking, she should definitely be added to your go-to list for inspiration.

Small Gunns

by Nancy on September 22, 2015



anthologymag-blog-smallgunns-1I found out recently that my son learned out how to play chess at school, and we’ve been playing it every day at home for the past two weeks. I’ve had squares as well as straight and diagonal lines on my mind lately, and couldn’t stop thinking about these black-and-white ikat pillows by Small Gunns. (After an hour of sitting at the table with a chess board, my back longs for that lumbar pillow!)

Sister Michelle and Diana Stock started their home decor line in 2011, and are based in San Francisco. Their wool pillows in camel stripe and plaid are perfect for the fall and winter season, and the exposed gold zipper is a sharp detail that gives the designs a nice edge. Their table linens would be well suited for a modern or classic table setting. And I absolutely love their tea towels with a check pattern on one side and a fun dot pattern on the back.

anthologymag-blog-design-botanique-planters-1There are certain plants in the world that are so bizarre looking, it’s hard to imagine they are from this planet. As a child, it took me a little while to grow accustomed to the prickly, rubbery, alien-like features of cacti and succulents, but now that I’ve come around I can’t stop admiring them in all of their strange glory.

I recently came across Botanique, a London-based boutique specializing in planters, terrariums, and other custom botanical designs for the home. The owner, Alyson Mowat, is passionate about elevating strange plants to the level of art. She carefully curates her selection of plants and the beautiful objects used to display them. I never would have thought to house a single succulent encased in a clear box as above, but the result is amazing, allowing us to enjoy the entire specimen from the root structure to the tiny thorns. You can see the full range of products she carries here.
