Decorating with orange boxes
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?
