Decorator Concept: Coming March 24th To Anthropologie!

I’ve known about this for awhile now but wasn’t able to reveal it until today… but my source at Anthropologie has confirmed that I can announce this lovely news today… But this month they will launch a new decorator concept which will help customers carefully select products to fit their needs along with expert advice and assistance. These workshop-style decorator shops will roll out in twelve existing Anthropologie locations in the U.S. and U.K. (listed at the end of this post) and their website will mirror their offerings.

The decorator concept will share Anthropologie’s aesthetic but it will be completely dedicated to, “delivering a unique experience that helps generate design ideas and support decision making,” and the decorator shops in stores will have wallpaper swatches, rugs, curtains, printed information about products, and it will host regular workshops with design experts. Main categories such as curtains, furniture, hardware, lighting, rugs and wallpaper, will be helpful to decorators and the in-store shop will look a little different in each location and will serve as both reference and to spark creativity.

They will also have design books and magazines (a first for Anthro to stock magazines!) that will also be presented and I’m happy to say that my upcoming book, Decorate, will be part of the line-up of inspirational books so I’m very excited. I have to fly over to the states just to see it with my own eyes. :)

Online customers will benefit from the new “For the Decorator” section listed under Features, which will debut on March 17th. The section will be home to tips and tool, such as a wallpaper calculator, upholstery fabric and wallpaper swatch requests, and glossary.

The Anthropologie store locations that will launch the decorator concept on March 24th are: London, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Corte Madera, CA, Denver, Houston, Miami, Nashville, NYC, Wayne, PA and Westport, CT.

NOTE: In London, at their King’s Rd location, two workshops are slated for March 27th: Meet Emily Chalmers, author of Modern Vintage Style and owner of hip Shoreditch boutique Caravan who will be offering one-on-one personal design consultations with customers. You can also meet Jemma Ooi and Nathan Philpott, founders of Custhom, will be screen printing individual postcards demonstrating their techniques which customers will be able to take home.

    This looks so cool! Too bad they didn’t choose any of the six Boston area stores to be part of the new program. :( I was getting all psyched up about it, so I’ll just have to check it out online instead!

    I’m surprised they haven’t done this already. Makes complete sense. I’m glad they are showing their hometown (Philly) some love with the Wayne location. Wish they would do something down by their headquarters. It’s so pretty down there!

    Oh, how exciting is this? I have been surprised Anthro hasn’t done something like this before… seems like a perfect fit for their stores. I am bummed our Minneapolis stores will not be some of the “chosen” ones, but I am sure the program’s success will move it through all stores quickly.
    I am so excited for you to have your book featured as well…. what more could a girl as for? A fantastic new book in an Anthropology setting? Celebrate you must!

    Congrats and thanks for sharing Holly!

    I’ve just discovered your blog today and I’m super excited to start exploring – I’m also excited to check out your book Decorate – I have a passion for beautiful and unique spaces and I’m always looking for new and creative ideas!

    You might be interested in checking out my blog – I made a post today on these vibrant chairs that I came across at an Edwardian country house in Kent this summer – I love the contrast of the bright colours against the black and white tile floors.
