Last summer I was asked to photograph the opening of the Anthropologie in Palm Desert. It’s quite amazing…a team of people work day and night to transform an open space into a finished store in a matter of days. The attention to detail is like none other. And this company knows how to sell! Even in a down economy, they are still opening new stores.
Everything is hand made or found. All hours of manual labor pay off when you see how the theme is woven throughout the store. Every vintage object is scouted out from local thrift stores and flea markets. Laura of Ascot Friday was one of the leads on this project.
Loving these hand-sewn tags. So many of the ideas can be adapted for at home use.
These blocks of wood create height in a table setting. I love the idea of using it for a buffet at a party. Every day items are escalated to chic with a bit of creativity.
Products are separated into the ‘rooms’ of the store.
This hand-made book shelf was so impressive. A million little details that were each so beautiful!
The plants seen in the store are all real…it’s so cool to see how living things are incorporated amongst the product.
Oh these little twig hangers are so cute! I think they’d look perfect in a nursery.
Loving the detail on these hanging lamps…copper and ticket stubs!
The team also made this bead from piping at lace. This definitely needs to be re-created in someone’s home!!
As you can see…love is in the details! If you have never been to an Anthropologie…hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Palm Desert Store! And sorry to kill you with a million pictures…I have hundreds and had a hard time narrowing it down!!
