The Incredible Anthropologie & Company in Walnut Creek

Anthropologie & Co. has combined their BHLDN Weddings and Terrain brands to reopen in downtown Walnut Creek in a  30,000 sf former Barnes & Noble location.  In addition to wedding dresses on the second floor,  the new location features a home design section and offers a huge selection of accessories and home décor in addition to clothing, handbags, shoes, and jewelry. This is currently the only Anthropologie and Company on the West Coast.  They are opening one in Palo Alto soon as well.  
We were up helping our daughter paint her kitchen cabinets (well Steve was).  Jenna and I snuck over to Anthro and checked it out.

The wow factor at the entrance begs you to explore more.


















The outdoor “terrain” areas are located on both balconies and at the  main entrance, 






There is a home design and decor section on the main floor

A beauty section filled to the brim...

Also on the main floor a limited edition apparel collection.  So many interesting items here that you can't find in any other store or online, and price tags to match.

The second floor houses a shoe collection that my daughter was drooling over

I can't wait to go back.  The store was packed.  I am hoping things will settle down.  With the Christmas Season approaching probably not until after!

  2. Cindy, Houston had the 1st BHLDN concept store in the country, exactly next door to the Athro shop. We all love their concept, love shopping there, love just looking around as everything they do appeals to most of us. I wish my home looked like this !!! Awesome !!

    1. Is it going to be in a new spot Kelley or where the old store is? Palo Alto is about a half hour closer to me!

    1. Cindy thank you so much for the link. I am anxious to check it out. I would think Phoenix or Houston would be a logical option for them! From the looks of the store when I was there it is a huge success.

  8. Cindy, Thanks for the great tour of this store! It's been on my list to get to. I always love the home catalog from Anthro so cannot wait to see much of that in person. Sounds like worth a day trip! x Kim

  13. Cindy,

    Well, I am already a BIG fan of Anthropologie - both the clothes and all the small home goodies in each store. So obviously, a whole store of home items would have me giddy!!! Thanks for the tour - hoping I can pop in the next time I visit my son:))

    Have a great weekend!
