The Hermes Blanket

Hermes blanket in black & white.


The Hermes blanket seems to pop up in so many rooms I love - either thrown over the arm of a sofa in a lounge room or on the end of a bed - this beautiful rug always looks striking. I love both the black and white colourway and the orange and pink colourway and if I was lucky enough to get one I think I would have alot of trouble deciding which colour I would want. Which one would you choose?

That's funny Anna, I was thinking about this for a post! I like them all, but I would do the black and white!

Great post Anna! I like the blue on Kelly Wearstler's son's bed.

JHAYNE said...

hmmm, let me think about this one. . .black and white, of course! and lucky me, the 'h' is the first letter of my last name. now, if only i had an extra $1000 laying around ;)

I have always been an Hermes fan. My maiden name began with "H" hence I had to have their stuff! I never got the belt I wanted but I did get the gold H watch with orange band. I'd get the pink and orange blanket by the way...surprise, surprise!

I'm still pining away for an orange and brown one. You don't see that color combination anymore- I wonder if they still make it in those colors??

I love them all but then again I love anything with my initial on it! I think that's why I gravitate to Hermes more than any other luxury brand ;-)

I am so glad you are back! I am an interior designer in beautiful Cape Town South Africa and love reading your blog. I also Love Beaustiful things so always find your blog and pics on your blog bring a smile to my face!
I had a bit of a Blue day today with clients being a bit difficult with suppliers I recommended(which does not often happen)and I haven't visited your site for a while so i thought - let me go and see what you have posted recently and I was so chuffed to see the Hermes Blanket pics. I Love Kelly's design style and have all her books and I also Love her son's Blue and Green bedroom, especially those Blue deep buttoned chairs! I would love some myself but my problem is I don't have any space left iin my home. So I have to think of a project I can use them in. I love these blankets and Black and White is such a popular colour scheme here in S A at the moment that I do love the contrast so i would probably choose that colourway. So nice you are back - keep up the good work - I also have other friends here in C T who Love your Blog!!!!

Not sure POC - I only saw the black & white, blue, caramel and pink and orange colourways on the website. Wouldn't it be great to pick up a vintage one!
