We’re not all about color and bold statements over here. We firmly believe you can be just as bold with a muted, understated palette as you can with anything else.  Recently we created pieces for a black tie celebration where gold and cream tones reigned high. {Lavish and painterly brushstrokes adorned the couples regal monogram and floral details throughout the suite that included Regal Gold and White Wedding Menus.} Our favorite detail these days…?  You guessed it, the mirror cardstock…Oh this stock adds such a level of drama when used precisely in the way it was meant to be used, […]

Stationery for our editorial shoot in Italy my kind of simplicity which for some, is likely still too much, but that is, friends, what makes the world go round…right? I come from a more is more kind of background – my childhood home was full of color, […]
