Paper Goods and more








Famille Summerbelle is well known for their paper cut out maps, but, I am not going to talk about that today (although, I'm tempted). Instead, I am going to share some other treasures from their collection which will surely leave you awed.

1. The owl paper banner (Owls alongside Mushrooms) is inspired by South American garlands and is made out of tissue paper.
2. Owl Wallpaper is hand screen printed and is available in 2 colors.
3. Kissing Birds Cushions is available in 3 pretty colors.

Behind the Scenes:
"Famille Summerbelle is Julie (designer and creative director) and Simon (all the other stuff) and we are the proud parents of Ophelia."

What does the name mean?
"The name Summerbelle is an amalgam of our two family names and the French ‘Famille’ is just a simple but meaningful nod to Julie’s nationality!"

This is a great blog - so glad to discover you (after you discovered me!!) Those paper banners - I beleive are a traditional Mexican craft called Papel Picados - I sourced them for a friend once for her wedding - the couple had their names cut into them - these are absolutely charming - will keep an eye out for owl things here in Ireland - I'm following you now - do be sure to follow me!! Keep up the beautiful work on your blog - by they way - who hosts this blog? is it blogspot? I love your design.
