All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I went for a walk
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day 

Michelle and John Philipps, 1966 

California Romantic, the new Ralph Lauren Spring line is sure to vanquish any February blues. Lauren's knack for mixing luxurious materials with nature inspired elements has been handsomely interpreted throughout the new Home collection. If you lust for linen, look no further than Lauren's new bedding line which features large romantic ruffled pillows and billowing canopies-very romantic. My favorite piece of the collection is the small hammered bowls, so beautiful anything you serve in them would be special. I'm also a huge fan of his table top; in this Collection a handsome array of exotic photo frames and rattan wrapped hurricane lanterns-very California Romantic.

The hammered bowls are dreamy! I think I need to scoot over to Greenwich and check out Ralph's home floor.

I could use some new linens!!

I'm a polophile ~ everything RL! Been wondering when they'd bring back the bamboo flatware. However, they missed a golden opportunity for a pony skin/calf hair pillow. Can't you see it? Thanks for the incredible pictures!
