London Artist Pia Bramley brings her imagination to the final course

While we’ve discusses the topic of dinnerware, china, and serving ware—we haven’t stressed the fun aspect of choosing prints and patterns.

You should always select a pattern, a color, or a print—whether outrageously bold or subtle and minimal, that reflects you and your home. With that said, when we saw these charming dessert plates from London artist Pia Bramley, we were hooked. We’re imaginative, we love the circus—boom, and it’s done.

At Anthropologie, the reasoning behind Bramley’s whimsy is revealed:

Inspired by the escapism, romance, scenery and secretiveness of the circus, London artist Pia Bramley illustrated these vignettes of costumed performers in their element.

These dessert plates, affordable and fun, make for great hostess gifts and holiday presents.

Clare Vivier Partners With Anthropologie On A Happy Home Collaboration

Anthropologie has tapped Los Angeles-based handbag and accessories designer Clare Vivier, founder of cult-favorite brand Clare V., for a new collaboration of 30 vibrant, summery and graphic pieces for the home and beyond. Inspired by Vivier’s summers in Île de Ré, France, these well-priced items in eye-catching prints may add some happiness and levity to your home and wardrobe during these uncertain times. The collection is available online and in-store now.

“We have always been drawn to Clare’s identifiable aesthetic, playful approach to fashion, color, graphic treatment and functionality,” says Chris Sotz, Anthropologie’s general merchandise manager for home. “She has a clear, culturally relevant vision.” Previously, Anthropologie had carried the brand’s handbags, t-shirts and wallpaper. “We knew our customer was already interested in and would love to explore more of Clare’s distinct style,” says Sotz. Though American, Vivier is a true Francophile and has always been inspired by travel in her practical yet whimsical accessories collections that includes her famed fold-over leather pouches, monogrammed, colorblocked wallets and summery straw satchels.

The collaboration between Vivier’s Los Angeles design team (where her accessories are produced) and Anthropologie’s Philadelphia design team was fruitful. “The collection is designed for seaside use, beach trips, and so many of the accessories are fit for everyday—all designed with the signature hand-drawn CV graphics, elements and French phrasing that we love,” explains Vivier. From the home domain, there are sunny-hued stoneware plates and mugs, bamboo melamine bento boxes that make lunchtime prep a breeze, platters that say “Oui” on them, striped glass tumblers, jute cotton accent pillows, candles, monogrammed notebooks, a patterned beach umbrella and matching sling chairs (made from water-resistant wood for outdoor use and a favorite of Vivier’s). For the wardrobe, cotton t-shirts and sweatshirts with “J’aime La Vie” and “Oui” emblazoned on them, leather headbands and scrunchies are on offer.

Add some subtle shimmer to your decor with these stunning metallic pieces. They range in shape from a tall vase for holding flowers to a large bowl for fruit or other items. These gorgeous glass vessels are made by hand, so each comes with a uniquely iridescent finish.

Designed by artist Paige Gemmel, these striking chairs mix traditional style with whimsical artwork, featuring your choice of four playful animals: dog, horse, tiger, or monkey. Each comes with a foam cushion covered by appliqued linen that will retain its shape and firmness over time.

Set of two 18kt-gilded porcelain dessert plates by La DoubleJ

Milan-based printoholic J.J. Martin, whose cult line of patterned dresses evolved into tableware in 2017, took a rather opposite approach in her new Milan flat. “l wanted it to look as if they were literally thrown on the wall and stuck there,” she says of the brilliantly clashing display she created with castoffs and color trials saved from when she was developing her La Double J tableware line. (In reality, she laid everything out on the floor first to find a grouping that worked and hired her handyman to help with installation.) “For those of us who don’t have unlimited budgets or unlimited art collections, it’s fun to get creative with how you decorate the walls,” says Martin, who’s known for her signature pattern punch. “This stuff is meant to be enjoyed, ogled, and eaten visually.”

AD100 designer Frank de Biasi hung a line of plates just below the crown molding in his own Tangier dining room.

Chef Gaz Oakley shares quick and easy plant-based crowd-pleasers.

By now, we understand the benefits of eating our veggies. A plant-based diet is good for you (hello, healthy heart) and good for the planet (goodbye, greenhouse gases).

But perks aside, plenty of us still question vegan food. Can it actually taste good? Don’t the recipes take forever? What’s the deal with tofu, anyway?

With the New Year upon us, we're challenging ourselves to bring more veggie-centric meals to the table. Thankfully, it won’t be hard, thanks to our friend Gaz Oakley, the chef, author, and YouTube star behind Avant Garde Vegan.

"I love vegan-izing nostalgic dishes and classic tastes," says Gaz. "Not many of us were born vegan, so I like to recreate those comforting foods, only using plant-based ingredients."

Recently, we whipped up three of Gaz’s most crowd-pleasing recipes at Anthropologie's Home Office. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there weren’t any leftovers.

Vegan food tends to have a serious reputation. But with a little imagination, plant-based fare can party with the best of them. Here, cauliflower is battered and deep-fried, then tossed in a tangy buffalo-style sauce.

“It’s essentially the best bar food you’ve ever tasted,” says Anthropologie Senior Producer Ali Hibbs. “You could serve this at a Super Bowl party, and everyone would want seconds.”


For the sauce

1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1/4 cup sriracha
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon garlic powder

For the cauliflower

1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 cup corn flour
1 cup non-dairy milk
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups vegetable oil, for frying

For the salad

1 avocado, sliced
Mixed greens
Toasted cashews
Sesame seeds
Radish, sliced
Edamame, shelled
Spring onions, finely sliced

Anthropologie’s Fall Home Collection Is Here, and It’s on Major Sale for Anthro Day

August is winding down (how??), which means the nights are getting cooler, the back-to-school ads are everywhere — and the fall collections are launching. I don’t know about you, but the shift from August to September is one of my favorites, signaling the season of light jackets, cozy scents, and a return to the home after months of activity. It’s a time to slow down, take a rest, and find some balance.

It seems Anthropologie feels the same way. The brand’s 2019 fall home collection just launched, and it feels like a warm hug. The collection is much more understated than what we’re used to from the retailer, with lots of calming earth tones and minimalist design choices. The new arrivals for the kitchen are especially inviting, featuring lots of ochre, simple materials, and an emphasis on the kitchen as the heart of the home. Everything feels thoughtfully designed to promote comfort, warmth, and togetherness. And best of all, everything is 20 percent off as part of the retailer’s epic Anthro Day event.

We rounded up some of our favorite new arrivals below. Be sure to browse the entire collection here, and get ready to once again celebrate the home as a haven.

Dresdner Eierschecke

While we didn’t purchase any porcelain in the Meissen factory, I did step into the cafe for a cappuccino and a slice of Dresdner Eierschecke. To be fair, I didn’t know what Dresdner Eierschecke was, but it was some sort of cake-like treat in the bakery case. I like cake. I especially like cake with cappuccino. So I decided to order one. Tasty!

I enjoy American-style desserts. Heck, this blog is full of really yummy desserts. However, I will admit that many American-style desserts are very sweet. Don’t get me wrong. I’ll eat them, and I’ll enjoy them. But American desserts are much sweeter than, say, European-style desserts.

This Dresdner Eierschecke is a German ricotta “cheesecake,” and it’s definitely a European dessert. I was a little surprised after my first bite of that Eierschecke in the cafe. I was expecting something a bit sweeter, so this cake registered as bland on my tastebuds. However, I went for another bite…and then another. Pretty soon I noticed the entire slice was gone. While it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, that Eierschecke was indeed tasty…especially when paired with a good cappuccino or cup of coffee.

So what is a Dresdner Eierschecke? This unique dessert is a specialty in the Saxony region of Germany. It consists of 3 distinct layers: a yeasted (yes, yeasted) base, a custard-like center and then an egg white layer on top. Once back in the States, I set about trying to figure out how to make a Dresdner Eierschecke. After all, one of the best parts about vacation is discovering new and unusual foods!

It turns out that making a Dresdner Eierschecke here in the US is a bit difficult due to the lack of various European ingredients. However, I ran down the rabbit hole that is the internet and found several baking forums talking about how to replicate this unique dessert. The key was vanilla pudding.

The center custard layer relies on quark, and quark just isn’t a common ingredient in the States. Vanilla pudding did the trick. It wasn’t the exact same as the slice I ate back in Dresden, but it was certainly close enough. If you’re looking for a fun, unique dessert, give this Dresdner Eierschecke a try. And if you find yourself in a thrift store, make sure to look for that Meissen logo!
