Papergarden - Apgujeong, Seoul

Papergarden - Apgujeong, Seoul

These two are the owners of a gorgeous boutique called Papergarden, located in the subtly high-end neighborhood of Apgujeong. They carry hard-to-find-in-Seoul designers like Les Prairies de Paris and Comme des Garcons, as well as household goods and vintage mid-century furniture. It was one of the prettiest stores I've ever seen:

As an aside, I found a wonderful book there by a group of London artists called Janfamily: Plans for Other Days. It's a series of whimsical art 'ideas' that are both charming and inspiring. It's the kind of book I want to give to all my friends:

I just ran into the Janfamily last week and blogged about them too. It is funny how when something enters you consciousness suddenly it is everywhere!

Hi jess - It is funny how that happens. I feel like I see so many things nowadays that look like something out of that book. Totally inspiring.
