Big on Style. Small on Space
The biggest adjustment I had to make when we moved to Texas was adjusting to the massive scale of the rooms inside of homes. Frankly, I'm still adjusting. It's not that yards are larger... but in Texas, bigger really is better and size does matter.
It comes down to volume. High ceilings, more square footage and what can seem live cavernous rooms. It's amazing - but quite a lot to adjust to when you've been conditioned to expect to need more petite furnishings or "regular scale" pieces. Such is not the case here. Go big - really big - or go home.
Of course this isn't everywhere or every home... and this certainly isn't the case in major cities across america. In light of this, it's nice (and savvy business practice) to see companies like Restoration Hardware offer more petite options. If you've shopped their showrooms you know how outrageously large their furniture and accessories can be.
But just today they released an email featuring what they call Big Style, Small Spaces. Those of you with a pied-à-terre or even just a normal home will certainly delight in the new collection!
