Collection: Hello Summer

Hot summers are the best excuse to take a trip to the pool and beach. As a new mom, I was extremely excited to take my 9-month-old for her first poolside dip. But, as I’m sure some moms would agree, I was worried about how she would fare in the water, so I perused tons of online mommy forums to find the best baby float to keep her happily splashing yet safe. I found this Swimways baby float to not only be accommodating with its shade canopy and safe with its breathable mesh, but also bold and cheery like summer colors should be. And why should babies have all the fun?! I’ve compiled a list of poolside and beachfront picks for the rest of the family while your little ones are splashing away in the pool. Dive in!

Stripes: Inspiration of the Week

At Paper Culture, our current products consist primarily of social stationery and wall art. However, we’ve always looked far beyond those arenas for our design inspiration. Our blog, Inspired, is about our journey to find eco friendly and modern design inspiration. Internally, we often create moodboards to capture different design inspirations. We thought we would share with you some of our favorites by posting a moodboard of the week. Each week, we’ll share a theme and show you how at least one of our products was inspired by this theme.

This week, we are in love with stripes. There’s something about the mix of thick & thin lines and alternating colors that makes this pattern a classic yet timeless mainstay. We’re loving how easy and breezy they look on a summer dress, yet how modern and sleek dark stripes look on a white watch. You can see just how much we are inspired by stripes – just type “stripes” in our website and you’ll find our collection of cards that pay homage to this versatile design! One of our favorites is our birth announcement featuring bright modern stripes.
