Let me start off by saying there is nothing wrong with it. Flipping through my new Restoration Hardware catalog for their Fall Collection, I can’t help but feel that burlap and linen have taken over our lives. Something that started with a lovely grain sack or French graphic pillow has drained the color from any of the settings shown in this catalog.
Spots of brown show up in mostly leather furniture and in some wood pieces, but otherwise every chair, every couch, every bedding item, every picture, every mirror, every bit of lighting looks bland to me. As I said, there is nothing wrong with it. It is the perfect collection for those who prefer a monochromatic color scheme, or for those who will buy the large pieces in this tone and then bring their own color in with art, pillows, throws, flowers.
I am underwhelmed by this latest offering from RH and while there is nothing wrong with it, it’s not for me. Each item on its own is lovely and beautiful and something I might purchase for my home, but it is not going into a room that looks like a sepia picture or a constant cloudy day.
I actually was excited to see some greenery in the picture below. What are your thoughts on this new Restoration Hardware collection? Do you think living in a whole house decorated this way might be depressing? Would you use these pieces as a base and bring in some color?
