Paper and Pieces: All The Things That Make Me Happy

by Claire Minnaar


Paper&Pieces is an online boutique for those with an eye for the rare and beautiful. It is the brainchild of renowned communications specialist Marí Lategan. Eager to escape the corporate world in which she is immersed during the week, Marí created Paper&Pieces as her “happy place”, a platform where she can share her passion for décor, interesting places and people and, most of all, beautiful things.


Marí laughingly describes Paper&Places as similar to her desk: stylish, uncluttered and easy to use. It borrows from her work space in other ways, too, most notably from her past experience as a publisher of magazines and newspapers.


Her affinity with these paper-based mediums hints at a love for other things which, in a world obsessed with all things digital, borders on the nostalgic: the art of writing letters, for example, or the magic of receiving a carefully penned card.


Paper&Pieces pays homage to these ‘old-fashioned’ notions with a range that is sweetly sentimental: find exquisite stationery (think gift sets, wrapping paper, gift tags and cards) with charming bird, damask and sheep motifs, for example, just waiting to inspire your inner writer.


Alternatively, if you’re looking for a gift (even a small present for yourself – and why not?), you’ll definitely find it in Paper&Piece’s range of gorgeous homeware. From whisper soft baby blankets and plush merino throws to napkins, toys, and scatter cushions bearing whimsical prints, there are plenty of ‘pieces’ to choose from.
