{at this moment: hermès orange}

May never consider painting the walls a bright orange, but have lately been inexplicably drawn to its sheer vibrancy, at home and in fashion -- perhaps it's the coming change in seasons or the creativity the colour is thought to bring . . . or it may just be the promise of the beautiful things that arrive in those lovely orange boxes . . .

Hermès orange and a framed 1950s fashion photograph are the perfect compliment to a Louis XVI gilt console

French chic: orange leather shoulder bag with gold chain strap

I'm not a fan of orange at all, but that picture from House Beautiful magazine is what I imagine of using orange as a small accent. Great blog.

XOXO Shannon

Hermes is the best when you need a splash of vivid orange chic. :)

Orange is a tricky color... sometimes I can't stand it, then I love it. I think it's just difficult to use/wear/decorate with and get it right. These pictures all got it right for sure.

I love orange, what's not to love about a Hermes box. I just bought tons of orange velvet poinsettas that are incredible so guess I am having a orange wrapped Christmas.

Hi
Always loved the Hermes orange box.
My mother used to buy the scarfs when I was a kid, and I always asked to get the boxes.
Love your blog, will put it up on my blog-roll.

Orange is my favorite color (if I'm using color, that is). I find that even people who hate orange don't mind it in the form of Hermes!

I think we're going to see so much of this gorgeous shade, come Autumn. I just adore it.

And hey, why not paint the walls with it?

Cheers.

Her name was Lola -- completely -- hermès orange will be amazing in autumn, and since it's a colour that's supposed to promote creativity, perhaps a study wall might be a lovely idea?

Caroline [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I think it would be lovely for an accent wall...

shilvia [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

not a big fan of orange...but i'll never say no to that box filled with fantabulous goodies :)

I'm with you on not painting the walls! Orange can be difficult because you want it to glow like the items in these photos - but you might as well end up with a wall that's too much 70's, but still flat. But I think I'd like an orange painting or photo on my wall!
