Ralph Lauren Home Collection


Most of my adult life, gravitating to the Ralph Lauren section of every store is natural and comfortable.  The colors and textures are soothing and put a smile on your face.  The designs are traditional and stand the test of time.  At first, the products seem expensive, but when the bedding lasts for 20+ years when cared for correctly – the investment is justified.


I am guessing it was a match made in heaven when in 1989 I was promoted to manage the Bed and Bath department in Macy’s Dallas Galleria.  The top-selling brand at the time was the Ralph Lauren Home area and I couldn’t get enough of it.  This is when learning how to delegate responsibility and understand how to develop cross functional relationships became invaluable to my immediate and future success.



Start with a basic palette, this allows you to add-on as the years go.  A couple of collections come to mind:  The Bedford Collection is neutral beige and The Haberdashery Collection is gray.  Either of these are enhanced with florals, stripes and bold solids when you want to update the look.
