Nicola Jones is the owner and designer behind the UK shop and studio, Gooseberry Moon. We love her style and brand which she duly describes in her profile page:
“With a ‘less is more’ aesthetic, I combine some of my favourite design elements including print, pattern, colour, calligraphy and typography to create beautifully simple paper goods for weddings and everyday. All designs are created from my original hand-drawn illustrations which are scanned and tweaked in photoshop to create patterns and motifs for greetings cards, notebooks, art prints and wedding stationery.”
“I’m inspired by the simple things in life, like shapes and silhouettes found in nature, and colour combinations and patterns in everyday surroundings. Berries, leaves and seedheads are some of my favourite things to draw.”

Admiring these origami embellishments created by Brasilia-based artist Falk Brito. In his youth he folded planes, boats and hats and was not familiar with the term, “origami”. He learned his first fold from a Sansei student and origami has since become his passion, giving it a more contemporary appeal with the use of pastel and earthy papers. You can follow him on Facebook and see more of his work here on Instagram.

We’ve featured Pikku before in our old blog site but excellent designs of home textile and paper goods are always worth a repeat acknowledgement. Pikku, a Finnish word for tiny, is the creation of designer, Valerie Ormiston. We love her simple, modern graphics, patterns and the appealing colors. Pikku shoppe can be found here at Big Cartel.
