porter hovey's favorite heirloom

I loved this sweet piece on Refinery29 featuring tastemakers and their favorite heirloom. My favorite, of course, was Porter Hovey with her mother's framed Hermès scarf (and not just because she's a fellow Kansas Citian). Its peach, coral and pale green color palette is perfect. Their mother, who picked the scarf up in Paris on her honeymoon, thought it pretty enough to be a work of art. And If I were to ever find a scarf as beautiful, I'd certainly follow suit. I remember obsessing over this same framed scarf in Porter and Hollister's book, Heirloom Modern. Actually, the entire book inspired my former apartment. Porter and Hollister have the most stellar taste. If you have a moment, visit the Hovey's design site here!

I love the idea of framing a scarf! I was actually at a friends place the other day and she had framed a handful of super fancy fabric swatches. It was beautiful and such a great idea when you're on a budget.
