Border Oak

Last summer, right after I started Neither Snow, Merry emailed me about collaborating on a brochure for her family's design and construction company called Border Oak. They were creating an advertising campaign for one of their artisan cottages, Pearmain. I visit the website and was smitten with the adorable cottages and outdoor structures. So much so I had dreams of a "calligraphy for cottage" trade. Recently Merry sent me the final product and it is the brochure of my dreams. The combination of gorgeous photography, architectural drawings, small details and, of course, the incredible design of their cottages works so well. I was also impressed by how accurately the text described their business: "...vernacular craftsmanship, natural materials and a quiet aesthetic charm" or "craftsmanship and a certain modesty." Neither Snow aspires to be described in a similar way, and was honored to work with Border Oak. If you are in the market for a cottage, I can't think of a better cottage company.
