4 Design Tricks To Steal From An Anthrolopologie Founder's Home


If there’s one place to look for easy, breezy design inspiration, it’s the home of Scott Belair.

The Anthropologie cofounder’s renovated Tudor-style house own the spotlight in this month’s issue of House Beautiful, in which interior designer Colleen Bashaw explains how she curated the home’s bohemian beach vibe. The look is stunning, but attainable: We can imagine many of these pieces working in our own spaces, too.

Here are 4 key tips to steal from this Anthro-licious paradise:

1. Let your accessories do the decorating.

Belair’s entryway features a wall of hats and bags that adds to the home’s overall beach-y aesthetic. The touch is just further proof that sometimes your own belongings make the best accents.

2. Use pendant lights freely.

Hanging lamps both save space and serve as focal centerpieces, especially in otherwise muted rooms. Make your own on the cheap as a weekend project.

3. Fresh flowers are the simplest way to spice things up.

Brief yourself on a few simple tricks to make grocery store flowers look magazine spread-perfect. Place them on clean countertops for a look of low-key sophistication.

4. When choosing bedding, go white.

There’s a reason hotel beds feel so perfect: Those crisp, clean white linens seem to help our minds decide that THIS is a place for quality sleep. Plenty of pillows make things look extra luxurious and fill out a room nicely.
