Icons of Style – Restoration Hardware

 

29th August 2014

This is a bit of a bumper post but I hope you’ll see why! Today I’m featuring one of my all time favourite interior decor brands, Restoration Hardware, whose style treads a path between Parisian elegance and a more raw industrial aesthetic.

This US firm offers furniture, lighting, soft furnishings, art and a host of decorative items for your home. Sadly there are no stores in the UK – yet?! – but if you’re desperate enough for their gorgeous wares, you can always get items shipped.

The colour palette is resolutely neutral and restrained and the immaculately styled room sets range from light and ethereal to dark and dramatic.

If I were to write about all the goodies on offer, from framed sea fans and delicately deconstructed furniture, to contemporary artworks and oversized chandeliers, this post would fill a very large tome.

So instead I’ll leave you with a taste of Restoration Hardware style in a final illustration of another of my favourite room sets and urge you to visit their website.

Just make sure you set some serious time aside!
