Normally I find Restoration Hardware very so-so. Some things I love. Some I hate. Usually most stuff falls into the later category. I received four copies of their new catalog yesterday (2 at work, 2 at home), and after paging through I must report that my feelings have only slightly warmed. I feel like their overall look is too contrived. Right now they are really pushing this whole French Country home theme. They also sort of over do it. If you want to hang old pictures of sports teams, go to an antique store. Don't buy the same vintage baseball team pic that is hanging in thousands of other homes. Having said all of this, I will admit that there are a few pieces from the recent collection that I LOVE. Here are some of my favorites.
