PAPERCHASE - lush mush

I am continuing my look at what prints and patterns are currently in store at Paperchase and we start today with a very sweet pattern called 'Lush Mush'. This fun range uses colourful mushrooms with interesting textures such as knit and stripes to create a forest inhabited by owls, hedgehogs, butterflies, fairies, pixies, etc. There is also a co-ordinating Star camouflage print to use as a mixer. Here are a few snapshots from in store together with some web shots. Lush Mush is available in shops now and online here.

PAPERCHASE - more summer ranges

Other new ranges to look out for in Paperchase this summer include Gaucho Glam which brings a bit of South American style to the UK.

PAPERCHASE - danish delights

I have been attending the Paperchase Autumn Winter 2014 press show at their HQ in London and will bring you all the preview pics soon. But one of the good things about being there on 'official business' is that I also get a chance to photograph the store below as well. So before we look ahead to Autumn I wanted to enjoy what they still have available for Summer. Here are some snapshots from Paperchase's flagship store in Tottenham Court Road where they have gone Danish with stylish designs from two great brands 'Rice' and 'Hay'. First up picnic and decor from Rice DK with colourful flowers, summer pastels, gingham and fun gnomes.

And also spotted in Paperchase stylish and simple stationery from Hay, spotted up on the first floor of their Tottenham Court Road store.


Also snapped at  Paperchase I found lots of great new cards in what must surely be the best card store in London. Above and below are  designs from Jane Ormes and then two florals from Hannah Pontin both published by The Art Press.

 Below : And two lovely florals from Rachel Cave for Black Olive.

And finally below a selection of cards snapped in Paperchase in London. Some cards are also available to buy online here.
