The Pink Stationery Shop
Pink continues to be the color of choice with a new stationery store, Papersmiths, dressed entirely in a rose pink shade.
The new store is located at Boxpark in Shoreditch, London, which is a shopping and dining destination made entirely from stacked shipping containers. This is the retailer’s second store, with the first being in Bristol’s upmarket Clifton Village.
The 300 sq ft space has been created by Studio B and features three materials: European solid Douglas timber, speckled Jesmonite, and dusky pink encaustic tiles. The pink tiles line the walls and floors. The black speckled Jesmonite is used as a backdrop for the shelving and provides a focus for the products, resembling textural wallpaper.

The store sells a small range of stationary and homewares as well as selected design and fashion magazines and cards.
The simple yet effective design illustrates how to make the best use of a very small space.
