When you approach the Palo Alto store by car, you could easily pass it if you weren't tracking your GPS like a maniacal hawk.
After all, it's not in a mall or even a trendy outdoor shopping district, like Santana Row. It's across the street from a railroad, and surrounded by nondescript storefronts like insurance agencies and a rogue dentist office. Notice I said, like--simply because I don't remember specifically. It was that nondescript.
But the Anthro store is beautiful--zen-like. It's got a small rectangular trench filled with water in front--fed by a stream above the sign. It's painted red--it looks warm and welcoming.
Which was made even more lovely and ethereal when I enhanced them on iPhoto.
