I am not an interior designer. I don’t even pretend to be even though I’d like to think I have style. Thanks to twitter, I have lots of interior design friends now and I absolutely love to see them in the process of their work as they create mood boards and inspiration pieces to curate a room. Often, the mood boards can be as beautiful as the finished space. Inspired by them, I decided to give you all a glimpse into how I curate my stationery collections. I begin by thinking about the mood I’m in, the feelings I would like to share, and the experience I want the collection to convey. It is not lost on me that stationery is a tactile object so I care about the texture of the papers I work with. Finally, I believe that stationery should represent the time in which it was created and yet be timeless, so I select patterns that resonate with me in a current, classic sense.
Thank you for taking this journey with me. I’ll share more of my process as I go along. Consider this my behind the scenes reality show!
