Coast to Coast

For the first time in April I had the opportunity to visit the West Coast! This was before I found out our new home would be in Oregon next month, mind you. Needless to say I was exited as this was my first trip out there. I was going to Petaluma, CA for 2 days and then San Francisco for 3! 

There were a lot of things of note to share but today I want to share 'Resto' with you. When I was in college I got my first REAL job. I was an interior design major so naturally I applied to Restoration Hardware. This started an important chapter in my life, and even though it was only a seasonal position, Restoration Hardware has a special place in my heart.

While looking for things to do in the city, I knew I had to visit the Restoration Hardware Design Gallery. We made a special trip to that part of town and I was chomping at the bit to get out of the car and see it. I was not disappointed...

It had beautiful open spaces to leisurely stroll through...

Great design inspirations...

And it was wonderful to soak up the California Sunshine while window shopping!

I was thrilled to see a different perspective of a company I had known and loved so much!

If your planning a trip to San Francisco in the future and have a passion for home design, I strongly urge you to take a half hour and poke around!
