Design Trends & Favorite Finds

Two For One: Paper Home Decor

As I looked at my pinterest boards for paper home decor, something that tickles my fancy, I realized that fellow etsy shops were accounting for many of the designs I'd seen and loved.  Since that was the case, I've combined two regular posts- Design Trends and Favorite Finds to share some of my funky, home decor paper love with you.

To be quite honest with you, I think some of the things people are making with paper are amazing! Whatever your tastes, there seems to be something made of paper for every budget and taste.

Elegant, quirky, colorful, neutral........you'll find it all.

3. geodesic origami via AIOUEden

4. table lamp via life in cardboard

5. tassels via studio mucci

6. mum wreath via nodak Mama

7. typewriter calendar via sky goodies

Although I'm not completely surprised by the things people are making with paper, since I've tried my own hand at making 3D hanging paper stars, I am pretty stunned at how detailed you can get.  I mean, just take a look at that hanging pendant lamp (swoon........I love it so much I may have even featured it before) and that tiniest of typewriters.  Pretty neat stuff all-around I reckon.

Have you noticed the paper decor trend or any others that make you want to jump on board? Do tell.

The sun is shining for now, though it is still pretty cold. Nothing to complain about from my little home office/studio where the wood stove is doing its thing.

Ciao for now,

PS- Are you following me on instagram? If  you are, then you may have seen that G baked another bread this morning. This time, pear. Who knew? All I can say is that it is delicious! I'll be sharing his recipe sometime this week. If you're not following yet, I'd love it if you did.  I'm pretty new over there


  1. That barn lamp is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!! Gorgeous stuff. I'm not too great working in 3D.

    1. crazy cool. can't say I've ever attempted a 3D project like that! though my dad is pretty good at building wooden ship weathervanes, so maybe I should give something a whirl.

    2. ps- actually, he's awesome at building ship weathervanes. picture here: http://batesmercantileco.blogspot.com/search?q=+pamela+jean

  2. Oh my goodness, I am head over heels smitten with the pendant lamp. How beautiful! Kisses, lovely.

    1. ok, glad it's not just me :) that lamp is just too cool

  3. That typewriter is the cutest thing!! I also love the lamp. I don't think it would work in my apt but it's still cute.


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
