It might be time to tap into your rainy-day savings account, because Anthropologie just released its spring 2019 home collection, The Life Within, and there’s something for everyone.

We’re not exaggerating—the thousands (yes, thousands) of new products that make up the collection are designed around the idea of abandoning convention and trusting your own taste. So, whether you prefer an organic, neutral aesthetic or a bold, colorful one Anthro has you covered.

“A lived-in home—one that exudes charm and personality—is at the heart of our new collection,” says Andrew Carnie, Co-President of Anthropologie. “It’s our most expressive yet, allowing you to convey yourself in entirely new and unexpected ways.”

While browsing the collection online, here, it’s easy to get swept up in the array of carved wooden furniture, dreamy wallpaper and cloud-like bedding but Anthro breaks it down into three easy categories—Layered Imperfection, An Organic Approach, and City Centered.

It’s safe to say we want it all, so we turned to the experts for advice on how to style these pieces throughout a living space. Anne White, Anthropologie’s Home Styling Manager, suggests first establishing a theme or color palette to create a curated collection that tells a story.

“Balance scale, texture and fabrication to ensure your compilation is both eye catching and cohesive,” Anne tells
