A Little Bit Gothy at Anthropologie

A few items from the October Anthropologie catalog caught my eye.

I like this dark Hairpin wallpaper accented with bright purple. Obviously, these are hairpins, but they look a little like jellyfish. I've always been a fan of the jellyfish tank at the aquarium. It's very ethereal to watch the light reflecting off of them as they float around.

I also like these black Burnout Velvet curtains. They remind me of something you'd find in a haunted mansion.

Eeeewwwww: Bread

Just in time for your Halloween party, really, really gross looking bread made by an art student.

I don't know that I want to slurp my PB&J out of a bread-hand, but I have to admit I'm impressed.

Read on Human Bread more over at My Starbucks.

Stylish Scares

It never occured to me, probably because I was busy hiding my eyes, but some of our Halloween movie favorites have their own iconic interior-design aesthetics. I ran across two references to horror movie interior design today.

From Shopping Buzz, thoughts on Rosemary's Baby, $5,000 pixie cuts, and Jonathan Adler-esque apartment styling.

And from Hatch, musings on Beetlejuice style in a Dublin hotel.

More design inspiration, this time from the home of art gallery owner Marianne Boesky.

The Re-bag

If I had to pick the "IT" bag for 2007, I'd have to go with the re-usable canvas shopping tote.

Once the territory of only the most dedicated environmentalists, the Earth-friendly canvas bag has had a fashionista make-over several times over (remember the lines for the "I'm not a plastic bag" bag?).

The latest incarnation is a series of canvas bags designed by 15 of the UK's hottest designers. Check out more at NotCot.
