If you’re mad about interiors, crazy for colour, and have a penchant for pattern like we do are over at Period Living and Real Homes HQ, then you’ll know just how excited we were when the new Anthropologie home look book dropped into our inbox.
Bringing together six key trends, the stunning SS18 collection offers a dazzling array of statement furniture, lighting, soft textiles and accessories perfect for mixing and matching to achieve an eclectic boho-chic interior.
With trends ranging from the rustic and textured Organic Crafted and Updated Global, to the refined and whimsical Modern Luxe and Dream Pattern, with plenty of exclusive artisan ranges thrown in, the collection is a real cornucopia of style offering pieces for all tastes and budgets.
Introducing the six key looks for spring/ summer...
1. ORGANIC CRAFTED
Natural materials and fibres such as rattan, wool, cotton and glazed terracotta combine with a neutral, earthy palette to create a calming take on Anthropologie’s signature boho-chic look.
Choose from statement hand-crafted rattan beds, chunky woven rugs and tassel-laden accessories.
The trend also encompasses Anthropologie’s new Pure collection - softly sculpted ceramics with simple silhouettes that nod to Mid-century design.
Pure Colorado vases, from £14 to £28
2. RE-IMAGINED CLASSICS
The biomorphic silhouettes of classic cocktail chairs are revived with vibrant fabrics and embroidery, 70s-inspired sideboards are given a sleek white edge, and vintage-style armchairs are brought into the 21st century with sumptuous jewel tones.
3. ARTIST COLLABORATIONS
Continuing its reputation for seeking out hot creative talent, Anthropologie’s SS18 range also sees a launch of several exclusive collections designed especially for the brand by exciting artists and artisans from across the globe.
