Restoration Hardware – Splurge or Save

“Treat yourself like royalty!”

Dr. Howard Murad

Have you ever browsed through a furniture catalog or admired a decorated room and wondered I would love a room like that in my home or “WOW! What does a room like “that” cost?” Well, I had those same thought and question when I laid my eyes on this Restoration Hardware (RH) living room. Time to find out and decide if it is worth the splurge or save and try to recreate the space.
