classic redefined: hudson bay blanket

can you even imagine a more perfectly cozy spot to curl up with a good book?!
total perfection... the teepee inside, the built-ins LOADED with books, even a surf board to remind that winter will end.
the cherry on top?
per-fec-tion!
cozy. preppy. a little bit vintage.


and check out this fun use of the classic...
i adore ottomans upholstered in kilim rugs, but THIS is cozy too!



but when rachel bilson (whose style i can totally relate to) stepped out during the olympics in this coat?!?!

the classic. reinterpreted by smythe.


I DIE.
love. love. love.
oh, how good would this look with frye harness boots and skinny jeans.
O.M.G.
seriously.

Ahhh that coat is so freaking cute---leave it to Bilson, sigh. I just seconds ago posted about the Lovely Design rolodex. It was the BEST suggestion I got all day for my new lil office. Thanks so much---you're too sweet (and full of good ideas)! XO

great finds on all these pictures — it takes a good eye to spot the same pattern in so many forms! found your blog today via the neo-traditionalist :) loved that rolodex idea!

I love those Bay stripes! I finally just a got a blanket! Timeless! I also went a little nuts and printed some t-shirts a la Hudson's Bay: http://www.etsy.com/shop/poppybrew

I was so mad when those rioters targeted the Hudson's Bay in downtown Vancouver. Insolents!
