Hudson’s Bay Blanket Love

When one is me, one never knows when design inspiration will strike.

This week, I was struck on Facebook — not once but twice.

First up was my Canadian BFF, Sarah Richardson . . .

. . . who shared that this winter’s Canadian Sochi Olympics team

was being outfitted by the Hudson’s Bay Company!

Check it out . . . you can even buy your own Olympics wool duffle coat:

Regularly $275,
now on sale for a mere $199

Speaking of coats — also on Facebook last week,

one of my favorite vintage shops

Betty’s in Morris, Illinois

posted she had this vintage Hudson’s Bay jacket!


Now, there’s your iconic, striped Hudson’s Bay blanket,

the one with which we’re all familiar, am I right?

I remember having recently seen these towels from Pendleton:

Only they don’t call them “Hudson’s Bay” towels;

on Pendleton’s website they’re Glacier National Park towels!

* * * *

Quickly,  my mind raced back to a photo

I’d seen in Country Living magazine,

in which a pair of Hudson’s Bay blankets were hung as drapes:

Hubba hubba!

And soon, I was off on an online trip

to find yet more Hudson’s Bay inspiration!

The treasure trove of all things Hudson’s Bay can be found

in the Hudson Bay Collection, here:

People.  Hudson’s Bay bedding?!   Yesh, please!

striped flannel sheets

If my budget was just a tad larger than it currently is

I’d get myself this awesomeness:



Or, for a lot less, how about a stylish umbrella that no one else will have?



I could order a hipster travel mug for G.O.

Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetheart?

Or I could just order a pair of these mugs:

Only $7 each

And for our doggies:

. . . there’s even footwear!

This adorableness wins the prize

In my opinion,

for the pinnacle of Hudson’s Bay merch,

one must head to Pinterest + search for

Hudson’s Bay blanket upholstery projects!

Yes, you can even buy pillows from Hudson’s Bay blankets . . .

. . . but now I’m pondering how I might incorporate their iconic stripes

into some pillow projects of my own!

Stay tuned!

    Thanks for pointing me in this direction!!! They have been my obsession now too! Hoping to run across one ( blanket, upholstered chair, bag or jacket) deep in a vintage shop.. Overlooked for years and priced at $12.00 😉 the dream continues!
