Nostalgia • Composition Paper

Two connected items crossed my screen recently. They were spaced a couple of weeks apart but they stirred up a little nostalgia. First came this work by Brock Davis.

There are definitely times that I have felt my lines were becoming unravelled. What a stunning metaphor for that feeling. But I was drawn to the composition paper. When is the last time I have written on it?

Two weeks later these pillows were shown on I again was instantly drawn to them.

My reaction to the second exposure to old fashioned composition paper made me realize a little nostalgia was at play here and incoporating that into decor gives we a warm fuzzy feeling. Interesting new observation. I'll have explore my home to notice other places I might have used this concept to make our home a place we are comfortable in.
