HERMES WAS THE ANCIENT GREEK GOD OF TRADE, WEALTH, LUCK, FERTILITY, SLEEP, LANGUAGE, THIEVES AND TRAVEL (doing the most, hermes!?).
ONE OF THE CLEVEREST AND MOST MISCHIEVOUS OF THE OLYMPIAN GODS, HE WAS THE HERALD AND MESSENGER OF MT. OLYMPUS - HE CAME TO SYMBOLIZE THE CROSSING OF BOUNDARIES IN HIS ROLE AS A GUIDE BETWEEN THE TWO REALMS OF GODS AND HUMANITY.
I'm putting the finishing touches on my master bathroom, and I'd be posting pics of it soon had the medicine cabinet from Restoration Hardware not shown up with the mirror shattered. Totes bum.
So instead, I'm going to let a thousand words paint a picture. In the bathroom, I have a cute little black marble and gold two-tiered shelf that will keep make-up and girly bits corralled on top, and on the bottom, I've been constructing a fun moment with my collection of Pendleton towels and the precious few iconic orange Hermes boxes I've collected during my tenure as a woman of entry-level luxury goods. Sure, it may be gauche to craft a purely decorative display of look-at-what-i-boughtness, but a box in the hand is worth two in the store, and I'm tickled with my understated edit of orange (perhaps the douchiest thing i've said in a while).
Let's get back on track for this post. Recently I pinned a photo from a favorite old Martha Stewart feature - Kevin Sharkey's house-warming cocktail party. Remember his shower full of Hermes boxes? That's that Martha money - Heremes in the shower and an Oreo cake in the kitchen, truly living. I felt inspired to search out more examples of decorating with the boxes, and hur's what I found.
CROSS THAT BOUNDARY, AND GET YOU A BOX GURL
