Shopping Trips

BE STILL MY HEART

While we were in LA for vacation, we stopped into Restoration Hardware on Beverly Blvd. We’ve always been big RH fans, so stopping by the flagship store was definitely on our to do list. Okay, well, more on my to do list than Greg’s… but he was a good trooper.

As we walked up to the store, the first thing we saw was the outdoor furniture “showroom” courtyard. Basically, this consisted of lots of ultra comfy and delicious outdoor furniture, mini white lights, candles, soft music and outdoor chandeliers that couldn’t even fit through the front door of our house. In other words, breathtakingly gorgeous. Needless to say, it was what I call, “an Instagram moment”…

I know. Who wouldn’t want to host a party in a space like this!? With all of the fuss over the few photos I posted on Instagram, I thought I’d put together a little post of the photos I snapped as we walked through the store. Keep in mind these are just iPhone photos and therefore, do not do it justice. Whatsoever.

Talk about an amazing movie room, right?!

I’ve been seeing these chairs online and in the catalogue for some time and always wondered if they were comfortable. I can tell now tell you, yeah, they are very, very comfortable.

I love these chairs paired with the mirrors, lighting and side tables. The candles on the side tables are battery-powered but look so real – more real than any other battery-powered candle I’ve seen before. Find them here.

I’ve had a thing for Chesterfield sofas lately. Seeing this giant, luxurious, deep version made me fall in love more. I also love the grain sack pillows over in the corner of the sofa. Find them here.

If I could pick out any bed for our bedroom, I’m pretty sure this one would be it (we have so many projects going on right now, I can’t even start thinking about the master yet). I love the clean lines, reclaimed wood frame and the nailhead finishes. Uhh, makes my heart happy. Find the bed here.

A more modern side of RH. I’m really digging the moss centerpiece on the coffee table. They don’t sell it – it was just for staging – but I’m sure it would be relatively easy to DIY something similar.

Doesn’t that look like a comfy bed to curl up in with a good book? The columns make the area feel so palatial and full of character. I also love the gallery wall in a grid pattern over the bed.

This room was filled with bunches and bunches of fresh white flowers. I’m a total sucker for white flowers, so this room was especially swoon-worthy. I really like how they built the hanging shelving unit from rustic wood planks and chains. I also like the numbered tin buckets. Very clever!

Last but not least, my favorite room in the store, the “Tea Room”. It’s filled with canisters of tea, books and magazines and, of course, comfy furniture and how about those birdcage chandeliers?! I also love the staircase and how the artwork goes all the way up towards the ceiling to take the eye upward.

    Next time you’re back out here in LA you’ll have to go to the RH Outlet in Camarillo, 30-40min from Burbank. It’s an incredible place! (Worth the drive, I promise!)

    I have been to this store on Beverly! LOVE EVERYTHING IN IT! There’s no way to walk in and NOT become a big fan. So glad you were able to go:)

    I didn’t know about tha RH outlet. I’m so glad to learn of it. It would be about an hour and a half drive for me and would be a great “get away day”. Thanks for sharing that info, Stephanie.
