My New Favorite Place in LIFE

Every now and again you find a thing (person or place) that you adore. Restoration Hardware gives me LIFE! Do you hear me?? 👂🏽  I have visited their Atlanta Showroom many a time – dreaming – and ultimately selected a few immaculate pieces for my son’s bedroom decor (airplane themed). Suffice it to say that if I could buy ALL my furniture from Restoration Hardware (RH) I absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt WOULDt!

While searching their website one day, I discovered that they also have seven (7) rooftop restaurants. I immediately added them to my wish / to go list; but, in my mind wrote off the concept of visiting a city just to try out a (furniture) restaurant as silly. #NOT! Here are the restaurant locations – all with their own unique decor / ambiance:

Restoration Hardware in West Palm Beach, Florida is GOALS! 🙌🏽🏳️🖤 Can I throw a party in there? Can I live my life in there? Can I work there? 👀👀👀 Somebody tell me WHAT I have to do to have this experience FOREVER! I spent 2 hours in their rooftop restaurant (packed!), another hour walking their four (4) floors of amazing furniture setups and took fifty 50 pictures… Yes, I was that impressed!

Here are some stock photos of the West Palm Beach Location from the company’s website:

I literarily drool every time I look at these photos. Check out all the pics I took  by clicking the link/photo below:

Etsy Shop @ Macy’s

Let me first say, you need to be in New York to advantage of a new partnership between Macy’s and Etsy; although, if successful you may find this in more cities in the near future. In case you’re not familiar with Etsy, it’s a place where independent retailers, mom and pop shops or just regular individuals can sell their handmade crafts. (I actually bought the monogrammed robes for my bridal party from a retailer on Etsy).

“Macy’s team of buyers hand-selected more than 50 products for the launch of the new Etsy Shop. The assortment, which features stationery, jewelry and homewares, also includes five unique items designed exclusively for Macy’s from Etsy shops Sol del Sur, Meera Lee Patel, and Modern Mud. The Etsy Shop will be refreshed with new products every six to eight weeks, focusing on a different theme during each selling cycle.” 

It’s not uncommon for mega retailers to partner with smaller shops to lure in (younger) customers, at at time when brick-and-morter stores struggle to get customers in the door (Fortune). Nordstrom (my new fav) sells items from TopShopMadewell and Bow & Drape – three smaller retailers that sell trendy items. For the meantime, if you’re in NYC at Macy’s Hearld Square, be sure to visit the Esty Pop-up Shop.
