Allow us to formally introduce the Fall 2020 "Artisanal Modernism" collection by Lemieux Et Cie – featuring hand-applied finishes, distressed leathers, and sun-bleached, sculptural shapes. "This collection is essentially my reinterpretation of the classic, lyrical shapes I love from pivotal moments in interior design history," says the brand's founder and renowned Canadian designer, @christianelemieux . While many of the pieces are heavily influenced by 20th-century European modern sculpture, you'll also notice nods to the opulence of 1920s France, as well as classic Danish mid-century leitmotifs. Explore the new #AnthroLiving collection at the link in our bio (and stay tuned for a very special giveaway tomorrow! ). Photographer: @a_gaut Stylist: @colinking
This week, we're tackling Rug Layering Rules and using this Spring 2017 #AnthroLiving scene as our inspiration. Rule #1 : Choose a room with minimal furniture. Rule #2 : Start with a neutral base (our Moroccan Cross Rug does the trick! ). Rule #3 : Pick a smaller-sized rug in a bright hue or motif. Rule #4 : Layer the smaller rug on top of the larger one, experimenting with various angles – from diagonal to straight. Rule #5 : Select your rugs at the link in our bio!
The right rug can work wonders. When sized correctly and chosen carefully, it lays the groundwork for a thoughtful space, acting as the room’s gracious host. So how do you choose a magic carpet? There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. The ideal rug depends on a number of factors, from shaggy wool to tufted techniques to tasseled details. Start your search at the link in our bio.
If designer, photographer, and artist @dabito 's could offer the #AnthroLiving community one piece of advice, it would be to have fun decorating – and don't overthink it! When it came to transforming his master bedroom and bathroom (the suite is actually the consolidation of two smaller bedrooms ), he shows us how. Inspired by the Boquera Morilla House, Dabito expressed his eclectic, bohemian spirit. "We installed larger windows to feature a beautiful fig tree outside, built-in bookcases plus a few arches to add architectural details, and we got custom cane doors made," he says. Our Eloise Pendant Lamp also made the cut! "Since the space was feeling so new and contemporary, the lamp reminded me of retro milk glasses, so it added something unexpected."

If you're the type of person who has a hard time making decisions, then we've got good news. When it comes to decorating small surface areas, #AnthroLiving says: the more the merrier!

Our favorite element in this Fall 2018 #AnthroLiving space? The element of surprise. With the Targua Coffee Table and Fringed Flokati Rug serving as the room’s tonal yet optical foundation, our mulberry-hued Atelier Sofa practically pops off the page. We like to think of the colorful gallery above as a modern accent wall and the bright blooms as a vibrant finishing touch. Find more surprises and delights at the link in our bio.

When it comes to wall art, beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. Still, interior designers Austin Carrier and Alex Mutter-Rottmayer believe pieces should be in conversation with the space that they're in. In their monotone bathroom, for instance, abstract art in warm tones encourages imagination and relaxation. Shop them at the link in our bio. #AnthroLiving Photographer: @hommeboys
For a piece to truly be one of a kind, everything from the color and texture of the fabric to the silhouette should suit your unique lifestyle.

They say good things come in small packages, and some of our very favorite homes have floor plans that are, in a word, petite. In rooms where every inch counts, it's best to be a bit creative. Think storage that doubles as seating. Or decorating up instead of out. If you stick with us, you'll never have to sacrifice style for the sake of size. Shop pretty, petite #AnthroLiving picks at the link in our bio.

Stylist @hansblomquist sees the bedroom as so much more than the spot where one sleeps. His idea of comfort: an artfully arranged, irresistibly tactile sanctuary that's both relaxing and restorative. Start with a clean white backdrop, then focus all of your attention on the details. Accent with handcrafted tassels, textural tufts, or striations of onyx and slate. Display garden-grown greens in rustic vessels. Set the mood with candles that double as décor. Let your imagination run wild at the link in our bio. #AnthroLiving Stylist: @hansblomquist

Referred to as "the touchstone of painting" by French modernist painter Edouard Manet, still life art dates back to the 15th century. Today, budding artists often refine their craft by learning to draw intimate objects before moving on to more complex subject matter. Skilled still life painters – from Paul Cézanne to Pablo Picasso to Vincent van Gogh – use this principle genre of Western art to show us a new way to view everyday items, from flowers to fruit to empty bottles.

Imagine for a moment that you're an #AnthroLiving home stylist. You're given a blank canvas and a few key pieces, then tasked with creating a stunning scene. To do so, you might start with a neutral base. Then, you'd curate the colors, patterns, and textures that evoke the most relevant mood or style. Here, rich purples bring depth and vibrancy to this bright and airy space – we'd call it a job well done. Recreate the look at the link in our bio. Photographer: @piaulin Stylist: @kendrasmoot
You know #AnthroLiving loves a good al fresco moment – and it turns out, so does stylist @kendrasmoot . We asked her to set the scene for a lovely outdoor meal with her family, and it's safe to say that it was served with style. The color palette: muted tones pulled from nature. The key ingredient: texture – from seagrass-wrapped serveware to handcrafted stone plates.
In a place meant for gathering and chatter, why not add conversation-starting motifs? For instance, see how electric blue leopards and sleek peacocks add a lush rainforest vibe to this space.

Shibori dye technique – translated as "to wring or to squeeze" – gained popularity in Japan in the 17th century. The detailed process typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth, binding it, then dyeing it in indigo; the bold, vibrant results are incomparable. Our new #AnthroLiving collection, which was inspired by this centuries-old technique, features a menu of modern classics and elevated touches. Shop it now at the link in our bio!
