With spring right around the corner (hopefully), I have been straying away from my typical neutral color palette and have been super inspired by color. Especially one in particular, the iconic Hermès orange. The French luxury goods company is well known for their scarves and sought after Burkin handbags, but most significantly for their packaging. Their burnt orange colored boxes have made Hermès not just a brand, but a cultural icon.
Their beautiful boxes have adorned the homes of famous actresses, socialites and fashionistas for the past 50 years and are still relevant today. I am constantly seeing pictures of perfectly styled homes with that beautiful pop of orange.
I love that in this entryway they have not only decorated with the Hermès boxes, but also added pillows and lamp shades in the same hue. It brings the whole area together and looks so glamorous combined with black, gold and green. The entryway below has more of a classic feel. The gold and marble table is incredible.
I have also been seeing these Hermes trays EVERYWHERE. Aside from being ridiculously expensive, finding a real one is extremely rare. Most of the trays you see today are not authentic. There are a few people on Etsy who make knock off versions but they will still run you a few hundred dollars. I saw a DIY version on Pinterest that I might take a stab at because you know I’m not about to spend $300 for a knock off tray. If I can find a way to DIY one I definitely will share the details with y’all! One of these trays would look so perfect on my new bar cart!
Although decorating with the orange boxes and trays has been popular for a while, I have been seeing a lot more of this color lately in the form of paint and other accessories. I love that the burnt orange adds a pop of color but it isn’t too bright like a neon yellow. Check out some of the images below to see how you can incorporate this color into your own space!
I LOVE this door. The burnt orange looks so amazing against gold hardware and really stands out against the white trim. Plus, I think that painting your front door a fun color is always a good idea.
How easy would it be to incorporate this color into your space with a piece of art?! Like I was saying earlier, this orange goes surprisingly well with other colors, especially neutrals. One of my biggest tips is to stick with neutrals when it comes to the big pieces in your home and then have fun with color in the accessories. It is a lot easier to switch out a piece of art or your throw pillows than it is to switch out your couch.
These orange lacquered ceilings are to die for. I love that the rest of the room is fairly neutral and that the orange isn’t too overpowering. Definitely a statement but I think it works in this space! I also love the light fixture and the live edge table!
I hope you are having a great week!! Thanks for stopping by : )
