J’ADORE {HERMES}…

Oohh Hermes, I have such a crush. What I wouldn’t do to have a piece of your iconic heritage in my closet. Certainly everyone wouldn’t mind having a gorgeous Birkin or Kelly bag in their arsenal, after all, posessing one is the ultimate “I’ve arrived” statement to the world.  Hey, I would even settle for a great piece of enamel jewelry. Gorge! This french fashion house which was founded in 1837 was originally a saddle maker. Hence, the logo. My how it has evolved. Now Hermes has become the ultimate luxury label. Let’s take a peek at some of the gorgeous goods…

 

 

The Kelly bag {introduced in 1935, take note- it only has one handle}

 

 

The chic jewelry {the Hermes Chain d’Ancre bracelet launched in 1938}

and oh those iconic Hermes scarves {introduced in 1937}

The Constance bag {introduced in 1939}

and the ultimate statement… the Birkin bag {introduced in 1984 but based on an 1892 design take note-this bag has 2 handles}

Continuing on, Hermes offers what I think is the ultimate accessory for the home. Without question, an Hermes Avalon blanket certainly holds some serious rank. This cashmere/wool blend blanket is the epitome of luxury and certainly adds just the right fabulous touch to any room. It’s just soo classic. Seems I am not alone as tastemakers have quite the love affair with it, I mean this oh so sophisticated blanket is always gracing the spreads of countless design mags.

Whether you place it on your bed, drape it on your sofa or side chair or hey, maybe even use it in the nursery {Rachel Zoe- I am referring to you} it is tres chic!

The Hermes “Avalon” blanket is definitely on my lust list and with its prominent H it certainly isn’t subtle. However, never one for subtlety, I kinda love it. However, at $1300 a pop it is quite the splurge. I know I will certainly try to justify it at some point in my life because just like a classic Hermes handbag this baby is an investment piece that you can enjoy for years to come…

Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw snuggling up with the Avalon blanket in the Sex & The City movie after her wedding debacle? No shocker that chic Charlotte had the classic Hermes Avalon blanket in her Park Avenue place. So CHIC!

THE BIG O, OBELISK THAT IS…

 I can’t get enough of using chic obelisks to accessorize a room! Maybe it is the fact that they come in such a wide variety of sizes and finishes to give you just so many delightful options. I’m not quite sure but I just think they make a stellar addition to any console table, coffee table, well, you name it. I know I am not alone in my obelisk obsession. The magnificent Kelly Wearstler is a huge fan as well. Let’s just say she knows a thing or two about making a design impact. I usually side on the “less is more” rule but I can’t help myself when I see large groupings of obelisks, I think the statement is much more dramatic and impactful. Enjoy these chic and glamorous images of obelisks in a variety of settings. I feel they really up the glamour. So CHIC! Enjoy!

My friend Angela found this chic footed candy dish and definitely plans on using it year round. It’s fabulous!

  Lastly, here is an example of incorporating this chic motif into your year-round decor. It looks great on this classic tufted chesterfield sofa. It adds a nice element of surprise and whimsy in this mostly traditional decor.
