We love to create happy, pattern filled spaces, with a touch of whimsy and color.. but most importantly, homes that reflect the people who inhabit them. We are believers in mixing old and new, high and low, traditional and modern, but always with our signature "clean and curated" point of view. Pencil & Paper Co. strives to make "beautiful and FUN" design accessible to all!
