Room Envy

Photo courtesy of Restoration Hardware

I know for sure I'm not the first to blog about the fresh new (and some would say risky) look that Restoration Hardware has embraced, but I had to put my two cents in...

In a word:

LOVE!

I adore every inch of this room and I have a feeling that most of the rest of their customers will, too.

What's not to love?

Bold without being "in your face".

Classy and elegant, yet fresh and even put-your-feet-up casual.

Well put together without taking itself too seriously.

Neutral without being boring.

I'll take one of everything, please.

Note to my hubby.... if you're reading this...

Honey...

remember that thing about me needing a "reward" for my trip to the dentist" that I mentioned two posts ago??

Hmm....

Have a great weekend, lovlies!

P.S.
Obviously, I survived my ordeal at the dentist and as a side benefit to the sedation, I was able to bank hours of sleep I otherwise would not have gotten. And really needed....
And I'm happy to report that my family restrained themselves from taking any embarrassing photos of me whilst I was still under the influence of the meds...
Apparently I was quite something to watch on the way home in the car, head rolling from side to side,
and apparently I asked the same question at least a dozen times.
But that one isn't exactly abnormal for me.
The question asking, that is...


I'm back! :)

hello, may favorite dentist story is this. this was a few years back. my dentist finished his work and wanted to know if i would care to barter? :) wait one sec. he knew we farmed and asked if i would care to pay my bill in a few straw bales for his dog house and some dried corn for his wild life. sounded good to me:) bestest, Denise

This is it! The way all great rooms should feel, relaxed and elegant. I too will take one of everything! Love,love,love it!

It's me again because I've been thinking about it for a bit...I DO LOVE this look but I've loved it for a long time. It's not a "trend" for me. One thing about this kind of wonderful is that once it goes mainstream...It loses its edge a bit. Rembember when Rachel Ashwell did the Target gig?
