The colors in an Hermes scarf are incredible. The bold. rich colors and patterns set the scarves apart. The square silk accessory is much sought after both as a status symbol and for many a collector. I remember the first time I spotted the well known scarf, it was not worn as a scarf, but instead made into the largest and most amazing pillow I had ever seen. Upon research I realized it wasn't actually fabric at all, but quite possibly the most expensive and exquisite scarf I had ever seen. It was love at first sight.
According to the book The Hermes Scarf: History and Mystique by Nadine Coleno, the scarf "is a style icon". The book goes on to say this ...
Worn by royalty and celebrities, coveted and admired, and now avidly collected, this deceptively simple square of silk is much more than just a fashion accessory: it is the stuff of legend.
For quite some time I have wanted to frame an Hermes scarf for our home. The current #oneroomchallenge seems the perfect time to do so. I have my eye on a few, but still need to settle on the perfect one for the space. I love how each of the scarves above create the most incredible and one of a kind art for the rooms in which they are displayed.
I found some incredible examples at perfect prices. Check out this one, this one and of course this one. And of course, you can always hunt them at high end resale shops like this one in Atlanta.
I can't wait to see the one I chose framed and hanging in our completed den.
Stay tuned ...
