Anthropologie Finds

On of my favorite stores for incredibly unique apartment decor choices is  Anthropologie.  Online or in a store location one can get completely lost in the wondrous finds to make your new, or your old, apartment a statement of who you are.

Rivulets Bedding for your apartment’s bedroom decor. Love this color

Spring Catalogue features great fashion.

Inspired apartment decor options. I love the dresser with the labeled drawers.

Apple Decor For Your Doylestown Apartment

 

I know it’s still pumpkin season, but the almighty apple still shares the reins for Autumn in my book…and kitchen. Why not consider some apple decor options for you Doylestown apartment?  Right now my place is full of pumpkins, a few still of the natural nature, and hopefully not over-ripening, and some of the synthetic nature. But now I’m considering going Apple!

Everyone knows compost is great for the garden, but you can’t always keep those heaping left-overs around too long, and heading out to the compost heap is not always easy to do, so here’s a lovely option. The Apple Compost Crock. It’s so pretty and can be kept on your counter as decor. Inside features a carbon filter to keep odors at bay until you empty. I just like the container, period.

More for you Doylestown apartment kitchen – the perfect paper towel holder with sturdy apple design and a matching Apple dish drainer.  Love these! from Ginnys.com.

Although this image is showing a wedding table, I want to use it in two weeks for my Thanksgiving feast…an arrangement of apples on the table will be lovely and refreshing for any dinner party. Use reds, greens, and yellow apples for full pleasure.  photo via My Biggest Day

Hope you find inspiration in apple decor for your Doylestown apartment. Any big Thanksgiving decorating plans to share?
