Bits of Orange





I'm a huge fan of orange, particularly brought in with high contrasting elements, such as deep, bold black, grey, brown, and tan. I am reminded of beautiful Hermès, gorgeous country retreats, and Fall leaves...

Speaking of Hermès— last week, I was sorting through some very old issues of Victoria magazine. We're talking Fall of 95' kind of old! I was just in elementary school back then, but loved decor and reading magazines with my Mom. (We keep most magazines that are of a timeless nature) As I was flipping through, recalling some of these images and places, I noticed a fabulous little boutique featured, located in NYC. They claimed that they have some beautiful vintage finds. Now, back then, there was no internet per say, and so I figured there was a very small chance that I would be able to find them. However, I did! And what finds they have! From Kelly bags to Chanel, to stunning French little black dresses. Some of the prices are quite reasonable for the quality and rarity. Click here to visit their site, and enjoy :)

  1. That Hèrmes-feel is just fabulous... Even though orange isn't my favorite color, these interiors look gorgeous, I especially love that hallway in the last picture!

    I love Hermes shade of orange, it looks happy and, well, expensive. Add a touch of chic to anything.

  4. I love these pictures -- a lot of orange can be overwhelming, but pops of it are so sophisticated and lovely when set against whites, creams or browns.

  10. I had done an orange, gray and white them in my bedroom last year - in subtle ways, through pillows, flowers, etc. I have gone to deep purples with my gray backdrop this year, but find myself missing the boldness that orange brings...

  11. Ever since I had a bright little orange bag in my line that sold out over and over, I just can't wrap my head around orange, but I always love Hermes! That boot/box photo is stunning and I love that you tracked down that link. Victoria is the only magazine that I've ever saved (of course I cut up and tore out almost every photo) so glad you posted the link :)
