LAUNCH PARTY // Restoration Hardware Spring 2012

Fun night!

I feel so fortunate to have been invited to the premiere of the Restoration Hardware “Exposed” Spring 2012 collection at their beautiful Beverly Blvd. location last night! The 2-story space is amazing, with a full olive grove-d patio just outside. There was lots o’ music, food, drinks, pretty people and pretty stuff.

It’s always a bit awkward to be snapping photos at these events, so I made the husband take a quick one of me before it started to get really crowded. :o)

Great lineup, right??

How can you not love ginormous chandeliers in even bigger bird cages, suspended by thick rope?

Me thinks this Moroccan rug trend is catching on (wink)…love the modern color ways.

What’s better than a linen-covered oversized, overstuffed chesterfield sofa? One paired with wood stumps, over a zebra rug, that’s what.

So I did have a few celeb sightings, and got to talk upย Jeremiah Brent, who designed Rachel Zoe’s house and is now heading up her home line. And being a local girl at heart, I was really over the moon to get to chat with Hawaii Five-0 actress Autumn Reeser and her husband! They have a 10-month old, and are the sweetest! I didn’t realize she has a blog โ€” check out her son’s nursery…super cute. I’ll be following!

Have you seen the new Restoration Hardware collection? What do you think? My husband and I were discussing how much they’ve completely rehauled their image and product line in such a short time! Impressive.

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an โ€œoccasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. It has been interesting to watch their product line change. I sense they are trending a little more then they used to, which I love. Great pics of you, by the way, you always looks so happy with a little twinkle in your eye! So glad you had fun out with your hubs!

  2. Erika, you look so pretty…I love your top. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looks like an amazing party! I always seem to find one or two things every season at Restoration Hardware that I love…

  3. What a fun party and all their new looks! A Restoration Hardware is opening later this year LESS than 1 mile from my home in OKC! So much that I have to look forward to! You’re a doll!


  4. loved checking out autumn’s blog..esppecially all her hawaii stuff!
    fun party and you are too chic for words!

  5. Looks like a great event to attend. I’m always on the fence with RH. Some of the things I love and most of I don’t but that sofa! *le sigh* I LOVE IT

  6. How great you got invited! I heard it was a great party. There are some really great new pieces in the spring line. Hope you had fun!

  7. Lucky you! I love what Jerimiah did with Rachel’s home!!! They were so mean to him though….Now about RH. Do I like everything….no. But there are certainly some great pieces to use in a room to add character. I do kind of miss parts of the old RH.
