Chic Extravagance: The Iconic Hermes Throw!

I am usually of the mind that great design does not need to be super expensive but some pieces are just so iconic that they are exception to the rule! Sometimes a fantastic splurge can make a space and allow you to save more in other areas - I think the key is the mix of the high and low. I have always coveted these Hermes throw blankets - at about $950 the cost is so extravagant but oh, they are so beautiful! Here are few of my favorite interiors featuring these fantastic throws. 
(I love the classic burnt orange and ivory combo above!)


The throw just makes the whole room -  perfect against the charcoal painted walls! Featured in Elle Decor {via Kindarwaza}

Refined but so chic! Designed by Trip Haenisch, featured in Lonny's January 2011 issue.
I love how youthful and lively this girl's bedroom is! {via Mallie Plus Posh}

An elegant but welcoming living room by Healing Brasanti - how amazing is that custom greek key ottoman?!  {House Beautiful, photo by Douglas Friedman}

I adore the mirror and the leopard carpet too! {via The Decorista}

Even perfect in a boys room! Leave it Kelly Wearstler to have the most incredible room for her son! Love the fresh color combo of lime and aqua {via Elements of Style}


And one more, from designer Trip Haenisch - so simple but so lovely! {Lonny January 2011}


So beautiful! Maybe one day!
