And for all you brides to be, mothers of the bride and wedding planners out there, keep in mind that Restoration Hardware has a bridal registry! Their spring 2012 collection is incredible, featuring deconstructed designs inspired by 19th century classics, an amazing Baroque Wood Crystal Chandelier inspired by the Rococo era in Versailles and lots of beautiful pieces in a lovely indigo blue. We fell in love with the European Zinc Dormer Mirrors and the Vintage-Washed Chambray Bedding is like your favorite pair of jeans: you won't want anything else. These pieces are made to last a lifetime, will never go out of style and are beautiful AND comfortable....exactly what a home should be.
