Anthropologie’s New Collaboration Just Dropped, and It’s a California Dream
Known for collaborating with top decorators and up-and-coming tastemakers, Anthropologie just dropped another exclusive home decor collection in partnership with interior designer Katie Hodges. If you were a fan of the brand’s Amber Lewis assortment — or you’re all about casual-meets-cozy neutrals and layering tonal textures, then this transitional style collection from the California-based Hodges is for you.
The 35-piece assortment spans several categories, consisting of furniture, case goods, lighting, decorative accessories, textiles, and more. Highlights include the Faux Fur Accent Chair, which features a shapely scalloped oak back and a faux Mongolian-upholstered seat that combine to make it look like a warm hug. The lighting pieces are standouts, too, particularly when it comes to the sconce offerings. Perfect for small spaces, the Brass Sconce would add a dose of warmth and ambiance above a nightstand or bathroom vanity, thanks to its perforated metal shade design, while the Brass Accordion Sconce feels like something storied that you’d find in an old library or study. The materials in this collection — from nubby bouclé and velvet to wood and bronzy metal — all exude warmth, and the earthy palette plays well with just about any color scheme. The wooden pieces, in particular, sport lovely carved details that infuse minimalist, organic oak with a little bit of Old Hollywood glamour.
“When designing this collection with Anthropologie, warmth and functionality were at the forefront of every design decision,” Hodges said in a press release about the collaboration. “Together, we created pieces that remained true to Anthropologie’s artful aesthetic with a touch of ‘California Cool,’ which resonates well with my community and clients.”
Personally, I’m eyeing the Organic Percale Printed Sheet Set and floral Pillow. With their ditsy flower print and moody colors, they’re springy but not too sweet, especially for these bleak, chiller months. The pillow comes in a long lumbar silhouette, which is a great one-and-done for styling a full- or queen-sized bed or larger.
