About Us

I have always been a paper addict! My love of all things paper and stationery related led me to opening my own shop/little slice of paper heaven.

It all started in 2003 with a friend’s wedding; we were looking for paper products so we could create her own unique wedding stationery set. During this process, I noticed that most of the products were a bit dated and it was hard to find the envelopes etc to match!
We also had no idea of what we were doing, and needed some help. So, after this experience, I decided to test my idea of having a paper shop and just specialising in the contemporary and funky side of paper, with the accessories to match, as well as my super friendly, helpful service! This little shop was in the Subiaco Markets, and just 3 months later I needed to move to a bigger shop, because we couldn’t fit any more customers in!

The “Pink Shop” on Oxford Street, Leederville is now the home of lala design and I am always trying to cram more and more paper and party stuff in. All the lala girls are previous customers and are self taught, as I am, and we are more than happy to share our knowledge with you.

Sometimes I can’t believe that this is what I do for a living, and that we have handcrafted beautiful custom stationery for over thousands and thousands of celebrations. Just to keep it fresh, I also design and print in Perth our own exclusive range of lala design papers.  Our wonderful customers, gorgeous brides and fashion are what inspire each new design.

I hope you enjoy my little slice of paper heaven! Feel free to pop in and have a chat – us lala girls do like to talk!

Happy papering!!!!
