In response to the recent "tear-sheet" post, some readers inquired about binders and color choices. I have one group of red cloth-covered notebooks as well as sets of brown, just because those shades work in the rooms where I use them (and I have a penchant for red books). But the image above, with a true rainbow of binders, has always appealed to me too.
When Kate Spade was the subject of a House & Garden profile, bookshelves -- and this picture in particular -- were highlighted as one of her favorite things; a component in her domestic bliss. I'm inspired by the freedom to use "office-y" notebooks on elegant shelves, and the vibrant mix reminds me of Taschen's domus volumes.
At the brick-and-mortar Sam Flax Atlanta, binders are available in an array of brights and neutrals. Oversized clear sleeves (helpful for those generously scaled European or Elle Decor tear-sheets) are available online. For in-store options, I would call to confirm. A little reminder: some of the large sleeves may require an extra big binder. For varied sizes also try Binder Finder.
