With her lifelong love for illustration and beautiful paper — plus an MBA from Harvard — Kate Pickett founded NYC-based Pickett’s Press in 2008. Whether it’s a baby announcement, a holiday card, or a wedding invitation, each paper is hand-fed through antique presses to create a look that is one-of-a-kind and full of character.
This week: Make the summer-to-fall transition with these organization essentials
Put plenty of color and personality into your workday with these eye-catching accents. They might make work downright fun (or, at least, more fun than it was before).
Stationery is this company's mainstay — and its beloved letterpress offerings, replete with preppy colors and seasonal motifs, are on prime display here. Monogrammed items are also on offer, including personalized memo pads, playing cards, and smart-looking Lucite desk trays. You'll never go back to plain paper again.
Create a tone in your room that’s bookish yet whimsical; structured yet laid-back and livable. The primary hues, clean-yet-classic lines, and pops of pattern in these furnishings and accents add up to a polished-preppy look that’s light-years more modern than those Alex P. Keaton-inspired, ‘80s prepster get-ups that are emblazoned in our old photo albums. This is polished-preppy: the way it’s done in 2013.
