That "H"

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM
Growing up in Charleston, SC "Hermes" isn't a term you hear often. Carrie Bradshaw changed that for me and educated me on how fantastic Hermes is. I don't think I'll ever be seen carrying a Birkin but I do love their other accessories. I first spotted the Hermes Avalon Blanket or "H" blanket to me, on The Rachel Zoe Project awhile back when she had it in her son Skyler's room. It's a gorgeous blanket and even has double meaning to me since my last name starts with an H.

Of course a gorgeous Hermes blanket comes with a price and it definitely is an investment piece. It's such timeless collectors item and would be so soft to snuggle up with. A girl can dream right?!

Let's talk about how versatile it is 
you already saw how adorable it looks hanging from a crib 

It's the perfect subtle accessory

Looks awesome on an all white bed. Can I please have this whole room?? The dog too!

Perfect as an extra cover for chilly nights

A great throw for reading

Even with all these different patterns going on it still looks great

Looks great against monogramming

And it's an amazing living room accent.

The burnt orange is just fantastic. Theo would never go for it, he hates orange.

While looking up pictures of the blanket I saw somewhere that said "It is the Birkin of Interior Design." 

Maybe one day!!

Do you guys have a home item you'd love to splurge on?

  1. I love them too! They're so gorgeous in person. I lust over everything Hermes makes and could spend hours in their stores. I chatted with a woman in a bathroom in NYC who was carrying a Birkin bag with 3 Hermes scarves braided on each handle. Gah!!!!!

  2. I would love to own the Hermes blanket. It's such a gorgeous addition to any room!

  3. I have never wanted one more than I do right now - gimme!
