This week’s The New York Times Style Magazine included something in their must-haves section for the home that is sure to get my nose out of a book.
The Bibliothèque pattern is Hermès’s first wallpaper collection and features images of a library of French equestrian books.
I’m not even sure I should be calling it wallpaper. Wallpaper to me is the yellow, orange and green striped pattern of my childhood bedroom. But I’m having fun thinking of the ways I could hang it. Over a cabinet or buffet table? On a narrow wall? (Naturally it’s not a substitute for real, breathing books).
“Bibliothèque” comes in four colors. Want to take a peek? Go to the Hermes web site. (Give the site a chance to load.) Then choose one from a virtual bucket of rolls, drag it to the “wall” and ”hang” it using a virtual brush. No trimming, smoothing corners or sticky paste required. Then roll with the possibilities for your home. Price on request.
