  5. LindsB says:

    Orange is my FAV color, I love this post!! I wish I had all of those boxes, even more I wish I had everything that came in those boxes- how awesome would that be? Till then I might have to settle on getting those orange boxes from Plantation ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. The Cherry Blog says:

    Love this post! I love shabby chic style boxes and old frnech looking vintage hat boxes for storage – and they look so pretty! x

  7. Kwana says:

    I’m with Sweet Nothing. Waiting for the orange box with the Birkin inside. so much that one of my books waiting to be published even has that theme!

  8. Kate says:

    Pottery Barn was selling an orange lacquered wooden box that looked SCARY like the H boxes – just as cute but more durable storage. there aren’t any on the website now but perhaps you could find it at an outlet or on ebay?

    Arent you so sad about Domino Mag?
    It was the greatest mag ever in the design world! Thanks for posting the lovely photos though,

    Ooooh, that’s a toughie! I’m a sucker for packaging as well…I don’t know if there’s really anything close to the iconic luxury that is Hermes orange or Tiffany blue…but there’s something to be said for the simple, practicality of Bloomingdale’s Brown Bags.

  11. Haven and Home says:

    I am a sucker for packaging. That post made me want to wallpaper my bedroom. I am going to assume she got some of those boxes on the side so I don’t fall over from jealousy, haha.

    BTW- I picked you blog as one of the ones I “Luv” for my post today. You were the first blogger that I really connected with and I am so happy to read your blogs every day!

    Hey there — For fun, I posted a response to your post, here:
    http://domesticattempts.wordpress.com/2009/02/05/for-high-heeled-foot-in-the-door/

    It’s specifically for you — take a look!

  13. beachbungalow8 says:

    great, great posting. I love hermes boxes. not for the what they represent, but for the color palette that I never tire of.

  14. Courtney says:

    I’ve always loved orange – especially clothing, but the color is terrible on me. But I do believe pretty orange boxes match everyone and everything ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    FC,
    Glad you share my love for Hermes. I really just want to go into the store and ask to pay for boxes! I’m sure the tiffany blue looks great in your room. I love all the paint colors you picked for your home and I think Tiffany blue goes great in your home.

    SW and Kwana,
    Totally would not pass up a free bag, but loving the orange shade in the packaging.

    Debra,
    Lucky lady. I’ve wanted a scarf from Hermes since I read about the editor in the Devils Wears Prada using them as her signature. You must take out the box and display!

    Lauren,
    She is very me. Maybe that’s why I love her so much. We are so awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would just settle for two or 3 in the living room. Great way to hide clutter.

    Linds,
    I know those Plantation boxes are AMAZING! How much are those babies?

    Cherry,
    Hat boxes are little works of art as well. I use to work in a shop that had them all throughout the store for display only. They vintage ones from stores like Bonwit Teller. I had to constantly tell people no they are not for sale!

    Kwana,
    Can’t wait to read whatever you write. Do you have any sample chapters? I love love love to read.

    Kate,
    You just made my day. I’ve been meaning to make a trip out to the PB outlet. I will be on the lookout for them.

    Rachel,

    I’m terribly upset about Domino. It was always my dream job out of college to work there. I remember hearing rumors that they might close, but I never thought it would happen. So sad.

    MLHP,
    I had totally forgotten about Bloomingdales. That is such a classic design that will be in style always. I also love the way Kate Spade boxes look. I’m trying to get my hand on some KS shopping bags to use as some photo mats for art work going up in my bedroom.

    M,
    I know I can’t imagine that she actually bought so many things that she needed all those boxes. So not far. Thanks for picking me. So sweet. I’m so happy that we found each other as well. I love this blog world of ours.

    Domestic,
    Thanks for posting your post. I just went on and took a peek. So amazing. Love it.

    Megan,
    You are a girl that totally gets it. While Hermes things are nice and I wouldn’t turn any down. I just love the crisp orange with the brown ribbon and little bits of white. It’s perfect. I will never tire of orange.

    Courtney,
    I can’t imagine something not looking great on you! But I agree orange is a bit hard to wear. I can only wear it if it is a burnt type orange. I do love pops of it in my decorating though.

  16. katiedid says:

    I love orange! And boxes. And this post. And your blog.

  17. Colour Me Happy says:

    I have never seen so many Hermes boxes in one place ever! The orange boxes are definitely the best ever. Have I mentioned I just love the name of your blog? It’s so great I better add it to my blog roll!

    Hermes boxes are chic.
    Tiffany’s boxes too-
    I also love Chinese take-out boxes-
    Lucite boxes
    Shoe boxes
    Bakery boxes—

  19. pve design says:

    Oh, chocolate boxes…
    Maison du Chocolate – gorgeous brown boxes
    Tea boxes…too-

  20. The Upstart says:

    The Plantation boxes are about $300.

    Tiffany boxes remind me of being a teenager, when every girl had a “Return to Tiffany” necklace or bracelet. I keep the felt bags, but pitch the boxes.

    Now, the Hermes box definitely gets me excited, but I would never put mine on display. I only have a few and they are in the closet, protecting my scarves.

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
