Have you been to the new Restoration Hardware in the city yet? (Technically it’s called RH Chicago, The Gallery at the Three Arts Club). Judging by the steady flow of people mingling around the place with drinks in hand this past Saturday afternoon I would guess that there are quite a few of you who have! Did you love it as much as I did?
Tip: If you’re planning to dine in this lovely glass-roof atrium, (and I highly recommend you do!) put your name in for a table immediately upon entering. We were quoted a 1 hour 15 minute wait, which ended up being about an hour. But that’s okay – grab a coffee … or a Bellini (!) at the 3 Arts Cafe counter and start your own tour through this amazing store – all 5 floors of it!
The restaurant and loungey areas are take up most of the first floor. The 2nd floor is set up as a series of to-die-for bedrooms and bathrooms, all decked out in RH’s signature rustic elegance.
(I would move into this bedroom/bathroom/sitting room combo tomorrow!)
I’m putting this rolling ladder shelf on my Wish List.
The 3rd floor is Baby, Child and Teen – they were honestly some of the most fun and creative rooms.
In my fantasy world – this would be my daughter’s room. (I would also need a daughter, ha! I did say this was fantasy.)
Who am I kidding – I could live in this room just fine by myself.
Love this subtle wall treatment –
How about the entrance to this “hang-out” room. Heavy metal chains hung in the doorway. It’s very Brady Bunch meets Keeping up With the Kardashians …
Of course, there were some very cool boys rooms too – I love their use of dark colors, leathers and vintage pieces to make these rooms feel cozy but cool.
Love these bookshelves …
And the nurseries … so sweet and perfect for boy or girl. I just love the map wallpaper.
And here’s a precious idea to steal – photographs of animal babies hung over the crib:
Is it weird that Dan and I stood there for several minutes oooing and aaahing over how cute the baby animals were?
They continued the use of rope in a cool ceiling treatment too –
On up to the 4th Floor which was RH Modern and Artwork. Definitely a different vibe –
This gives new meaning to the word “bar-cart” –
Finally up one more flight of stairs – (there’s an elevator too – but you don’t want to miss this staircase)
And the view is worth the walk up …
A lovely rooftop to showcase their Outdoor Collection – I ‘d love to throw a party up here, wouldn’t you?
At this point you hope you’re receiving a text that says your table’s ready. But if not, just head back down stairs, lounge a little on the comfy sofas and enjoy the view.
(I really want to figure out how to do those uplit wine racks in my house.)
And finally – Voila!
Such a cozy spot on a cold winter’s day. Are you ready to plan your visit?
