If you've ever dreamed of shopping Anthropologie's charming interior design-happy catalogs in the flesh, pencil in an OC road trip. The URBN-owned retailer debuted its decor-driven renovation at Newport Beach's Fashion Island last week, bringing expanded beauty and footwear offerings and its first-ever Cali store to house a home furnishings department.
The 20,000-square-foot space features 12 shoppable model rooms featuring floor-to-ceiling interior decor inspiration, from a gypset bedroom to a contemporary living room in pastel hues. Picky interior design aficionados can get expert home styling advice and customize their own furniture at the store's in-house design center, which offers over 100 styles (from seating to headboards), 75 combinations of fabrics and colors, wallpaper books, and more.
Over in the beauty department, expect to find nearly 90 international and cult-fave brands and over 800 products and tools, including Artis brushes, cosmetics by RMS and Face Stockholm, natural haircare by Sachajuan, Mer-Sea body wash, Mio skincare, Kai fragrances, and much, much more.
Footwear fiends will find options from Farylrobin, Kelsi Dagger, Stella McCartney for Adidas, and other brands alongside exclusive styles from The Office of Angela Scott, Loeffler, Lien Do, and more.
See more of the store's major interior decor inspo above and explore it IRL Monday through Friday from 10am to 9pm, Saturday from 10am to 8pm, and Sunday from 11am to 6:30pm.
