THE LOOK FOR LESS | Anthropologie Dining Room

I've had this Anthropologie dining room image saved on my phone since the first time I saw it! I immediately fell in love with how they mixed neutrals, different textures, and pops of bright colors! Sadly -- to get this exact look from the store would set you back over $5,000! And that's not even including the dishes or candlestick holders!

I recreated this look two different ways, and at way more affordable prices!! The first look (below) comes in at around $1,810.00 for everything!! The chairs have a similar bright, festive design. I kept the rug neutral so it didn't compete too much with the chairs, but the diamond design and texture reminded me of the Anthropologie one. The pendant and dishes (for four settings) are both under $30!! You can find the links to everything under the photo.

Look # 2 is a little more expensive at around $2,311, but the table is almost an exact duplicate of the Anthropologie one.  I found these chairs that have the fun design only on the backs, and paired them with a rug that has similar colors to the Anthropologie rug. I think mixing these chairs and rug gives the design a fun, eclectic feel. It doesn't look overwhelming since the chairs have only whites and grays in the design.

With so many affordable online decor and furniture resources, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to recreate the look of your favorite stores! You just need to decide what it is you like most about the design and seek out those elements!


Every time I come across this dining room on Instagram, it immediately catches my eye. I love the bold, black walls combined with the gorgeous vintage area rug!! This beautiful space is owned by Erin of Everyday Interior Design - do yourself a favor and check out the full room tour here on her blog. She linked several of the pieces she used, but I did my best to pull together a more budget friendly version of the space!
