I have been doing nothing the past few days except painting trim white.
So I have nothing to show you guys. It’s just been prime, prime, paint, paint.
The doorways are the worst. But boy is it looking better.
We’ve been putting in all new doors.
No more flat paneled, stained doors that suck up every little bit of light in this house.
The difference in lighting is amazing. Especially upstairs where there are not a lot of windows.
I will show you the new doors soon. They have yet to be painted!
But even with just primer they are so much better.
I did get this in the mail the other day.
The new Restoration Hardware catalog.
Oh wait, excuse me…..Source Book.
Yes, It has morphed from a simple catalog to a source book.
Look at the size difference.
(yes, I still have last Fall’s catalog)
It’s bigger then my phone book. And heavier too.
It’s 615 pages.
Yes, that’s right, six HUNDRED and fifteen pages!
It’s so big that it’s awkward to hold and flip through.
It is the War and Peace of catalogs.
Sorry, source books.
The thing is, they have a lot of the same stuff in it from last years measly catalog.
Same girnomous sized furniture. Same greige tones.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the look of a lot of their pieces.
And I do like things a bit on the larger size.
It’s just I don’t live in the type of house that most of it could fit in.
This bed is pretty normal sized. I could swing that.
That is if I had $2195 burning a hole in my pocket.
But this sofa….
Yeah, not so much.
And the enormous birdcage lights are a big no too.
I would need reeeeally high ceilings.
I just think that it was a bit of an overkill sending out a book this size to everyone.
I can’t even throw it in my bag so I can flip through it when I’m out and about.
I could pull a muscle or something.
What about you? Have you seen the new….book?
Any favorite new pieces or is it more of the same?
