You’ve heard of coastal grandmother, but Amber Lewis’s latest collaboration with Anthropologie is giving us a new, even chiller vibe: West Coast grandmother. The Insta-famous designer just dropped a fall collection that totally looks like it belongs in a Nancy Meyers movie (one that’s set just off Highway 1, that is).
Lewis’s signature California-cool style typically skews contemporary, but we love that this update offers cozy, ready-to-patina pieces like a black-finished island and hardwood serveware. The new patterns, colors, and materials are warm and welcoming, and nearly every product has heirloom-quality or custom-made vibes; it’s no wonder Lewis deemed it all “easy living.” Here’s everything we’re eyeing for our our own spaces, even if they aren’t within walking distance to the beach.
Fresh block-print florals, checkers, and paisley patterns mark previous pleated lampshades, throw pillows, napkins, and more (including a quilt that looks as if it has been draped across the guest bed at your family cottage since forever).
If you don’t want to splurge on custom-made fittings but still want the artisan look, Lewis delivers with this milled-like bathroom vanity and oiled bar cabinet.
No matter if you’re serving bubbly in a flute that brings to mind Depression glass or glazed stone serving bowls, all your guests will be asking at which gold-mine antiques store you scored them.
Lewis loves a wood moment, usually leaning into honey-colored, clean, and light. But this launch is notably different with darker tones and rustic textures—all we can think about is hanging a straw or cream bucket hat on those vintage-inspired hooks or serving up a spread on the rattan handle tray made from natural suar wood.
Bouclé isn’t exactly a fabric choice we’d deem traditional, but paired with a woven backing and wood frame with personality, it almost passes for “I found this at an estate sale.” Just add a jute rug or brass lamp to complete the look.
