I got a sneak peek of the Anthropologie holiday collection — 9 items I'm buying this year

'Tis the season to be jolly! The Anthropologie Holiday House kicked the festivities off early, and we're not mad about it

I'm never one to rush spooky season, but the Anthropologie Christmas collection definitely put me in a festive state of mind. For a moment, I'd almost forgotten that I hadn't even picked out a Halloween costume yet. 

The retailer joined forces with Pinterest in Brownstone Brooklyn to showcase its latest releases. I fell in love with the Anthropologie Holiday Collection immediately upon entry into the spectacular home, as expected. Festive, feminine, and a tad retro, the adorable pieces and impressive decorating made me want to curl up with a cup of cocoa and a warm blanket. (It happened to be fairly mild in New York on the day of my visit, but that's beside the point.) 

Needless to say, I'm now noodling on Christmas decorating ideas for my own space, and, of course, I made a wishlist. See what I'm going to stock up on from Anthro this holiday season.

What'd we tell you? The Anthropologie x Pinterest Holiday House is utter perfection. Attendees ventured through three floors of coziness, Christmas trees, verdant dried floral garlands, velvet pillows, and outstanding tableware. There was a lot to love, and all those walking through had the same reaction, myself included: "Oh my god, I have to text this to my mom." 

"With the holiday season upon us, we felt it was the perfect time to showcase the latest furniture and seasonal decor so that our customers will have the inspiration and required resources to thoughtfully curate their personal sanctuaries," Aaron Mutscheller, president of Anthropologie Living and Terrain, said in a statement. 

Given that we have some old-school flair present in the collection, it made sense to opt for a brownstone built in 1899. When visitors first stepped in, they were welcomed in with an intricately set table and winter-white living room. A few steps back was a gorgeous kitchen with dark cabinetry up to the ceiling (reminiscent of Victoria and David Beckham's London kitchen). Upstairs was a cozy bedroom, while a restful den beckoned attendees to the basement level.

In a perfect world, I'd likely stock up on everything, but here's what I'm realistically eyeing from Anthro ahead of December.
