A Rustic Beach Window

We were so honored when Andrea at Paper Presence asked us to design her storefront window each month. Paper Presence is located in the heart of St. Petersburg's Grand Central District at 2435 Central Avenue. Her window showcases her amazing array of custom stationery.

This month, the theme is Rustic Beachy - a natural, relaxed, "feet in the sand" atmosphere. We combined burlap, raffia, and bamboo with stationery designs including starfish, hemp, and other natural elements. Starting with an overlay of burlap, we kept the layout asymmetrical and staggered the height to create interest. We also found creative ways to display the custom pieces of stationery by placing them in sand, in raffia, and standing in coral. Whimsical touches such as hanging starfish and shells in the window, as well as lining the window sill, finished out the natural layout.

Be sure to stop by and check it out! A special thanks to Paper Presence for inviting us to take part in this great opportunity!
