The Hermès Orange







The Hermès orange is so classic and iconic, no? When I get married, (this is such a dream) I would love a single, classic item such as their lap blanket or key holder. Their pieces are a little beyond my current budget, but I certainly admire them and pop into their stores whenever I can. They are the epitome of sophistication. Despite that, they have quite a fun site! They use playful illustrations, such as the ones shown above, amongst the products, to demonstrate a lighthearted, airy feel. Have you seen their bike before? Isn't it too cute?

The orange is wonderful and I never tire of it. It's such a punchy and cheerful color, and looks divine in the home as an accent color I think my favorite is combined with grays and whites, or even with a very soft, robin's egg blue. What do you prefer?

  6. i want that bike!
    i've been trying to incorporate the "right" orange into my decor; i've just begun my search. orange is great with soft blue, steel gray or charcoal. the right shade looks good with chocolate brown also.
    the muted colors in the last photo are gorgeous.

  11. That bike is incredible cute :) I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. It is so chic! I do love the car, too, I did a post back in November about it and all the wonderful detailing that Hermes has designed into the interior space. It's the most chic little ride!
