Anthropologie Placemat Art

Today I am revealing my project for Week 4 of the Inspired Design Challenge. This week Anthropologie was our inspiration. I just love going there! Anthro is fun, its globally inspired, its quirky, creative– basically everything I love about design. I have always thought it’s vibe to be hippie-chic.


I wanted an easy-to-do project for this week. I like to take home items and look at them differently. While I was in Atlanta for the Haven Conference, I stopped by the nearest Anthropologie to get some inspiration. I wish I could have packed up half the store (including the clothes) and bring it home, but I was there to get inspired and not shop ’til I drop. I seriously came up with 10 things to do in the matter of minutes!

I decided to do a project with this gorgeous woven placemat:


Anthropologie Sanibel Placemat

I love the pattern and the color. I’ve been feeling a pink and orange vibe lately so this was speaking to me. I knew I instantly wanted to frame it as art for our bedroom. Placemats are a great item to frame because they are inexpensive and easily fit into frames. There are so many great textile patterns to choose from. It’s a great alternative if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on art for your walls.


On a thrifting adventure I scored this gold bamboo framed art. This placemat is the perfect size for this frame so you can see how easy this is! A quick swap of the art with the placemat and you have some really chic expensive looking art. The frame was $3.38 and the placemat was $14. Beautiful art for under $20.


I am using it on my dresser in our bedroom.





Here are the all the Anthropologie projects from Monday. Enjoy!

Howdy! I am back from the LONGEST.ROADTRIP. EVER. or as most of you would call it my trip to the Haven Conference. It was amazing, full of new friends, I got to spend some quality time with my blog buddies, learned some new skills and guess what?? I got to meet Angie from Angie’s Roost and Lindsay from Life of Splendor who are part of this wonderful Inspired Design Challenge!

Inspired Design Challenge This is week 4 and we are revealing our Anthropologie Inspired Projects. I am the slacker this week. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, you know what I mean? The week before the conference I was down and I mean down! A 3 day migraine and other health issues ruined my project plans and then Wednesday I left for Haven. I am sorry but I am going to be tardy for the party this week. Yes, that was a Real Housewives of Atlanta reference and no I did not have a NeNe sighting.

So, I thought I’d show you my inspiration for my project and link up to the amazing Anthro-inspired projects that these girls came up with! You are going to be inspired! I will be sharing my Anthro-project tomorrow.
