Paper Style

These beautiful images are from the lovely Toronto location of the Japanese Paper Place store. Purchases can be made online which opens up a wonderful opportunity to access these products if your hometown doesn't have such a store.

I love the potential all these beautiful papers offer. I find it very inspiring walking around this shop and just enjoying the colors in their organized displays. Seeing blocks of colour is very soothing and settling. Once I get to the patterned paper displays another feeling sets in. These are pre- determined beauty. I don't always know what to do with that... Some ideas do come to mind... lining a coffee table and laying glass on top perhaps.
These organized displays are a feast for the eyes...

I hope to do a series on stores I find beautiful in and of themselves. Well designed a displayed merchandise is a real art and when done well makes shopping a really pleasurable experience. The Japanese Paper Place definitely does it right!
