Some people decorate with Hermes boxes.
Call me crazy, but there's another orange box that's been making me more excited lately.
Thanks to Karen at Strictly Simple Style, I was able to order yet another Le Creuset item in my favorite color, Caribbean Blue. I got a grilling pan and I'm so excited to give it a try.
Tracking down the images above from Traditional Home and Sara Story's portfolio, I find myself thinking back to when I was in middle school, when I'd search through the bag of shopping bags my mother kept to fish out the very best brand name I could for my lunch. On days when I could find a Saks or Tiffany bag, I was pretty excited. Looking back, I'm sort of embarrassed that I did this, but I chalk it up to a materialistic atmosphere in my school or town. The one Hermes box I own is tucked away in a drawer, protecting the scarf an aunt gave me. I don't see any need to let visitors know that I have it.
What do you think of this use of Hermes boxes? How about the shopping bag? Would you do this in your home?
