people-watching

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 up 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 — 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.

    This is part of why I wish I lived in LA! I was invited to this party and was so sad to miss it since I live in Texas. So glad to hear you had a great time! XO

    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!

    I was just at Resto yesterday checking on an order for a client. They have really evolved and offer amazing pieces.

    You look adorable! I love Jeremiah, felt so bad for him when he got fired, glad they came to their senses.

    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.
