Today I get to share another Anthro display with you! Some of you may think that I am just a designer and that Tim does all the building and heavy lifting. But I am proud to say that when I need to, I can wield all sorts of saws and build something from the ground up. And that was the case with this shutter headboard/wall. Of course, I would have loved to have Tim there to help me out, but my new job requires a little more independence. :) Here's what I designed and built!
As you can see, we used a whole bunch of shutters and some beautiful bright paint to create the look.
I built in the floating shelf on the left side and then balanced it out by hanging the three pendants on the right. I made the pendants from some vases that Anthro sells.
Don't you love that bedding?!
In case you haven't noticed, very bright neon-esque colors are back in style! That's why we went with this chartreuse color to cover the shutters. It is actually the exact same color of the Anthro card. So, if you like the hue enough to color match it, just run to your local Anthropologie and sign up for a card (don't worry Dave Ramsey followers- it is not a credit card). :)
A few close-ups of the shelf area!
And here is a close-up the vases turned pendant lights! I think I'm in love with these!
The back of the headboard/wall also acts as a place to show off product- here's a quick look.
And there you have it, another completed display!
It definitely took a team to execute this vision. First, I designed and built the main structure and design elements (shutter wall, floating shelf, pendant lights) with my new friend Mekkena. Then, my Visual Manager (Katherine) came in and decorated the shelf, chose the bedding, and placed all the product on the back. It's so fun working with other artistic people that bring great ideas and suggestions to the table! I am learning to collaborate and I really like it! :)
