In the handbag, on the desk or on the bedside, these things are always within reach. A selection of basics that does not vary. I love putting more attention towards finding the perfect versions of these functional objects that have to be used every single day and partly determine the aesthetics of our life.
Having the perfect basics takes away the need to purchase the unnecessary. Knowing that you work best on thick unlined paper for example, could stop you from buying a lined notebook even though the leather luxe cover is beautiful and it is on sale. But no one asks us questions about the way we use stuff and often we forget to ask these questions to ourselves to determine what we need (or really want even). This sounds like a very minimalistic thought, but I think it goes much further; all the amount of products that are thrown at people makes them lose themselves, their own opinion and their own style. People just blindly buy like mindless zombies without even being aware of their own likings, needs and taste.
Enough rant! Also took these pictures because arranging white notebooks with white pencils in a neat way and photographing is my joy in life.
