We’ve had the best Summer settling into our new home and town by the sea in Cornwall. We’ve spent every spare moment either on, in or watching the ocean and I am so grateful for the time I’ve been able to share with my family and friends at the beach this Summer. I arrived back at work today like a new person, with a sketchbook brimming with fresh ideas, feeling motivated and inspired by our time spent together by the ocean.
I have followed Alice in Scandiland for a number of years. I love her house, and style, I also love her frankness and ‘behind the scenes’ moments in her Instagram Stories. Her feed is always a beautiful curation of her home and family, I find her daily posts to be a real inspiration and they have an honesty that has spurred me on at times when I have felt like throwing the towel in with social media.
A recent trip to the St Ives Barbara Hepworth museum and gardens of sculpture. I took so many amazing photo's I wanted to share them in a blog post. I found it such an inspirational place and hope you can get a sense of that. I feel so lucky to have such a place on our doorstep. It is hard to explain but visiting is almost like stepping back in time, whilst being thrust forward. The modern, commanding sculptures are beautifully dramatic, but there is still a sense of the artist still being here. There are her tools in the workshop and plants in the greenhouse, there's even a cat asleep on the window ledge.
April was a busy month, seeing the launch of the Wood Paper Scissors website and re-brand. We introduced our lovely new coastally inspired logo and packaging, using natural materials. We also shared our new range The Klys Collection. It's like Hygge but Cornish.
