Today’s recap from the 2016 National Stationery Show is less about a common design style or color palette, and more about an overall vibe. In my head, I’ve been calling this group of booths the New Bohemians. Each booth has a laid back, offbeat vibe, with plenty of botanical details throughout. Let’s start with Wild Hart Paper, which was full of beautiful greeting cards, art prints, gift wrap, and more!
This post is FULL of photos – so keep reading after the jump too see more from Wild Hart Paper, along with the booths of Our Heiday, The Great Lakes Goods, Katharine Watson, Ferme à Papier, Idlewild Co., Heartell Press, and Banquet Workshop!
Our Heiday has such a beautiful hand painted botanical vibe, with art prints, greeting cards, phone cases, notepads, and gift wrap. And they introduced probably my favorite single new product from the entire stationery show: a magnetic dry erase weekly to do list board!
Little page markers – so cute!
I’ve never been a superstitious person, but The Great Lakes Goods is doing their best to convince me with their superstition wall charms! Magic eight ball wall charms, posi-vibes garland, and seeing eye charms. I’m also loving the hand painted rainbow wall charms and moon phase garland!
Katharine Watson‘s gorgeous hand painted booth was back again this year (she should seriously do a line of wallpaper, don’t you think??), along with her beautiful block carved greeting cards, art prints, calendars, and notepads!
Aaaaaah, copper foil + block carved designs = perfection!
Cat Seto of Ferme à Papier always incorporates the most interesting inspiration into her designs. Her inspiration this year involved Art Deco and Pop Art! And in addition to cards, art prints, gift wrap, and calendars, Ferme à Papier just released DIY paper geode kits using their gift wrap patterns! I’m hoping they’ll offer kits with those amazing paper air plant holders, too – aren’t those so cool??
New exhibitor Heartell Press offers letterpress printed art prints and cards featuring designs made from hand carved block prints by Brooklyn-based designer Rachel Kroh. So unique, and I love the way Rachel uses color in her designs!
I love the way Idlewild Co. mixes hand painting and hand lettering with so many design influences – tropical, chinoiserie, abstract patterns, English literature – while still maintaining a consistent aesthetic. New notepad blocks, pens, and magnets for the desk and home, along with new greeting cards and calendar designs!
Last up for today, Banquet Atelier & Workshop! So many beautiful botanical-inspired art prints (hello fiddle leaf fig!), greeting cards, and even pillow covers!
