Falling for Anthropologie

Falling for Anthropologie
Falling for Anthropologie by bethnadler on

Dearest Anthropologie,
Thank you for your constant source of inspiration.
I love leafing through your catalogs, walking slowly
through your stores and once in a while, taking home
one of your little treasures.
All my love for a happy Autumn filled with patterns, textures, and color.

A Palette of Flowers

These are a few of the last of the photos I took right before Summer's end.
I think some of these flowers were ahead of themselves in terms of the season.
I did find a lot of color inspiration in these photos and created a few color palettes
from the actual photos.  Each palette below is in corresponding order with the photos above.

I'll make sure to share my newest designs with you based on the
above color combinations very soon.

Stacking paintings to make room for more.

Having a photo shoot

Drinking a lot!

And creating a little "Joy".

So i have 44 tiles in all, not a huge job but from where I'm sitting they look like miles of tiles!  Actually, I love how this job came out.  I designed and produced the tiles for a friend of mine who's opening a funky boutique (Avenue P. in Larchmont, NY if you're every in the area) in a few weeks.  The tiles are going to be installed on an existing wooden window seat.  I'll be sure to share photos of the finished project when I have them.  These are ceramic tiles with printed images adhered directly to the surface.  They're not durable enough for floors, but for trim they're going to work just fine.  I have some other plans for this type of tile which I'm going to be offering in my Etsy shop very soon.  Can't wait to share that with you, too!
