A unique way to journal ~ Dreamday Pattern Journals

When Laurence King Publishing Ltd contacted me offering the July released Japanese and Moroccan style Dreamday Pattern Journals I just had to experience the unique features for myself.

Stylish and practical in equal measure, the Dreamday Pattern Journals combine the everyday practicality of a notebook with the stress-busting benefits of colouring in.  We all know how adult colouring has gripped the nation but how unique to fuse colouring and journalling!  Different to anything I’ve used before I was looking forward to incorporating these as a part of my everyday life.

There are now six journals in the series.

Heraldic – Paris/ Mid-Century Modern – Scandinavian / Art Deco – Manhattan / Renaissance – Florence / Japanese Style – Kyoto / Moroccan Style – Marrakech

The journals contain over 100 pages of uncoated ivory paper intertwined with intricately patterned colouring pages.  I love the coloured endpapers and the richly patterned covers (especially the Moroccan style).

Each luxurious journal is designed in London by Pentagram, one of the world’s most iconic design studios.

I wanted to show you the quality of these Dreamday Pattern Journals rather than telling you so I’ve created my first YouTube review.  The camcorder was on a tripod so I wasn’t able to zoom out or in and some shots are a little out of frame.  I think you can still see how fabulous they are and you will certainly be able to tell from my narrative  🙂



As mentioned in the video, Laurence King Publishing have created a fun and interactive quiz, Which Dreamday Pattern Journal Are You?  Watch the video to find out which one I am.  Have a go yourself and let me know which journal you are.



This is a series that is not just luxurious and good to look at.  It is beautiful, functional stationery.  In the video I mention that you personalise the journal with your own unique spin – the Dreamday Pattern Journal becomes your unique personal notebook with however you want to use it and of course your own designs and colouring.  I think this is really special.

Retailing (at the time of my review) at £10.94 with FREE UK delivery, this is a journal I am very impressed with and highly recommend.  The Dreamday Pattern Journal is without doubt value for money.

* I received the Japanese and Moroccan Dreamday Pattern Journals to review and this is my honest opinion.
