When I heard Anthropologie was opening a design center in Chicago, I nearly died of excitement. I love Anthropologie’s home decor as much, if not more, than I love their clothing. I love going in to see the newest displays, and I always find myself wishing my home could look even a fraction as beautiful. But getting to see entire rooms designed around Anthropologie-exclusive pieces? THE DREAM.
My mom came into the city for the day, and she’s an even bigger Anthropologie junkie than me so it was obviously a perfect excuse to go. I was surprised to realize that the design center is actually located inside their store on Chicago Avenue that’s been open for a few years. It’s a little tucked away so I hadn’t even realized it was there when I visited the store a few weeks back! Overall, the space isn’t huge, and I wouldn’t recommend making a trip solely to see it. That being said, the spaces they do have are amazing, and I’m basically crying that I’ll never have an apartment that looks like the one in the second photo. There’s a design specialist on site, and they have tons of swatches that you can take home for decorating inspo. So, if you’re renovating or redecorating, you should definitely check it out!
