Is it weird we have a bit of a fetish for pretty paper and cool lettering? We might
have thought so pre-Pinterest, but now we know the love is real. Here are some
of Perth’s best options to get your fix.
ANNIE P. PAPERIE
Whoddathunk so much prettiness could come from the humble sheet of paper? Annie
P. Paperie’s founder, Bob Poolman, sure did, making his Claremont shop the go-to
paper stop for Perthies for decades. We’re especially fond of the bird-shaped paper
garlands and the wrapping paper that’s so beautiful it could be hung on the wall.
243 Stirling Highway (corner of Reserve Street), Claremont.
STARRY NIGHT PAPERIE
Leanne Aitken, the self-proclaimed gypsy behind this nomadic business, has the free
spirit and sense of adventure to make her works truly special. We’re stoked the Sydney
native has now based her custom business in Perth, so it’s easy to get things made up
– like little passport invitations for destination weddings.
BEAU EST MIEN
Parisian-born, Fremantle-based Magali Dincher makes the sweetest notepads, party
invitations and cards, decorated in her cute, childlike illustrations. J’adore.
458 William Street, Northbridge.
It’s chock-full of wedding stationery and vintage-inspired birthday cards, but we come
here for the party props, like colourful lolly bags and straws, paper lanterns, and rustic-
looking bamboo bowls and cutlery (much more eco-friendly than plastic!).
176 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn.
Best-known for wedding stationery, there’s more to this pink candy-striped shop
than meets the eye. We love how it fully supports DIY efforts, offering free templates
and helpful suggestions for people who want to flex their creative muscles.
225 Oxford Street, Leederville.
It’s not the paper itself but the added extras that get our hearts aflutter at Studio
Bomba. Little ink pots, heart-shaped hole punchers, and special stickers will take
your stationery to the next level.
324 Oxford Street, Leederville.
The furniture from Freo
lads Duncan McGrath and
Lachlan Brett is somethin’
else. They’ve done fit-outs
for clients like the Perth
Fashion Festival and Zara
Bryson, but you don’t
need a business to take
advantage of their clever,
out-of-the-box designs: they
also offer bespoke furniture
creations to feature in your
home or office. “It’s custom-
made,” you can smirk when
people ask you where you
got it. Find them at MANY
Naomi Miles, the peroxide-blonde
blogger from For The Dreamers, has
a legion of Insta-fans for her boho style,
and a knack for pairing unexpected items
together in a way that just works. So who
better than the Perth fashion blogger to
give us shopping tips?
How would you describe your style?
Bohemian, unique, edgy
What are the items on your
autumn wish list?

If you had a limitless budget, where
would you go to splurge?
