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!
We then moved to The “Pink Shop” on Oxford Street, Leederville which was the home of lala design for 15 years until April 2018. April this year brought us to a new stage – we rebranded and refocused, moving on from the big, busy retail store to focusing back to giving our clients our complete attention and creativity. We created a gorgeous, stylish bespoke design studio in the heart of the city. We take clients by appointment only, so that we can make sure our complete focus is on them the whole time. We have to admit we have found a creative mojo again! and our clients are loving the bespoke space we created for them.
Sometimes I can’t believe that this is what I do for a living, and that we have being involved in creating beautiful custom stationery for over thousands and thousands of celebrations. I hope you enjoy my little slice of paper heaven! Feel free to book an appointment and have a chat – we lala girls do like to talk!
