r+h Must-Have: Blush

March 31, 2017

Blush. Pale Pink. Tumblr Pink. Millennial Pink. The world seems to have been recently painted this muted pastel shade, with everything from cosmetics packaging to entire public interiors enthusiastically covered in it. And we’re into it.

The new russell + hazel collection for 2017 features a group of items that capture the current obsession with the color, so you can accessorize and organize to your rosé-loving heart’s content.

For the planner girls, there is a solid blush mini binder in sleek patent, just right for your airy desktop flat-lays on instagram. Our latest quips+queries set is blush edged in gold foil – what stationery dreams are made of. The paper bloc is an all-new item that combines soft blush notepaper with industrial goldtone hardware, a contrast we love.

Elsewhere in the collection is a wider range of this rosy shade. There’s the midtone taffy pink seen in the new single subject notebook and jotter cards. The spectrum of pink shades in the page flag set is the perfect complement to blush paper inserts for the mini binder.

For now, this pink-hued frenzy doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. We want to know, have you embraced the trend? Let’s chat – find us on social @russellandhazel


r+h Must Have: Mini Binder Refresh

March 29, 2017

Every time we launch a new collection, we get excited about the new mini binder colors and patterns. For many, the mini binder is a daily essential, so an occasional swap-out for a new design is always refreshing.

Honestly, we can’t decide on a favorite. The new collection captures the contrasts in color, materials, and masculine and feminine themes that our designers drew inspiration from. You can see the softer, more feminine influences in the blush binder and some of the new patterns. A richer and bolder theme is seen in the new rust and indigo editions, while the dimensional, marbled look of the Effe mini binder is a fresh interpretation for the marble trend lovers

As always, r+h offers a full range of inserts for the mini binders. From calendars to pocket folders to tabbed dividers, page flags and much more, it’s truly a customizable planning system. Additionally, you can download free printable smartdate calendars for your mini or signature binder by heading to this blog post.

The smartdate system can be used as a daily, weekly, or monthly planner, an address book, project planner, sketchbook, or a custom combination tailored to your work and lifestyle. For a limited time, take 10% off the entire mini collection. (No code needed, through 03/30/17.)

r+h Must-Have: The Acrylic Desk Tray

March 27, 2017

Among the new arrivals in the 2017 collection, the acrylic desk tray is a standout. A stunning addition to the r+h acrylic family, the tray is a substantial, high-quality accessory that beautifully combines form and function.

The desk tray is crafted from heavy-cast acrylic and brass, with signature clean lines and minimal design aesthetic. Fans of r+h stationery will enjoy the perfectly sized spaces for our jotters, square memo pads, adhesive notes and quips + queries cards.

The tray is a stylish resting place for the items you tend to lose track of throughout the day – your phone, favorite pen, a notepad, etc. Desktop organization is chic and easy with this statement piece.

While the new desk tray is perfect for the workspace, it’s also a versatile home decor accessory that can be used in a variety of settings. We love it as a display for perfumes and our most reached-for jewelry. It can also act as a sleek coffee table tray, corralling remotes, candles, and accessories. The transparent design with brass accents is modern yet classic,  and can transition to any setting or styling you choose.
