The times they are a changin’ around my house, and I think I have a new favorite color combination: navy blue and Hermes orange. I’ve always been more of a cherry-red and grass-green type of girl (or a butter yellow and gray lover), but this combo has been popping up everywhere lately, and it makes me wish I had a few Hermes boxes lying around (in my other life as an Upper East Side socialite) just for the pop of amazing orange color.
I’ve only been inside an Hermes store once to buy a Man of Honor gift for my best bud Bryan (he’s über fashionable), and I’ll never forget the overwhelming urge I had to throw a few empty boxes under my arm and bolt for the door. I didn’t even want anything to put in them; I just wanted the colorful boxes. So when I saw this image of Flor’s new “Sophistikat” floor tiles and the gorgeous stack of Hermes-style boxes in the back, I was in heaven. Something about this combination feels so sophisticated and classic, and it manages to straddle that line between masculine and feminine. I’ve always loved Flor’s tiles for spaces that need a dash of pattern, so this ikat style is a great new addition to their lineup. And hey, if you’ve got some gorgeous orange accessories to place near them, you know it’s going to look amazing.
