Having trouble find the right design for your nursery? This beautiful young lady combines creativity with passion to come up with decor that will definitely wow you. We met with Taylah Woolley, the young owner of Lalah Designs, who followed her heart and love of designing and creating beautiful prints. Our little chat enlightened us on the woman behind this growing brand.
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I moved down to Ballarat, from my small hometown, to be with my fiancé. I have always loved everything about design and decor which was what lead to the creation of Lalah Designs. I enjoy the flexibility of working out of my home – it saves me time and a lot of money.
How did you get started with your biz?
I started Lalah Designs in March 2016 after leaving my last job. My employer then gave me an option of either doing a course to further my skills there (which I knew I would never utilise) or I leave so I bit the bullet and decided to follow my dreams and start up my small business.
What (or who) are your biggest influences?
That would definitely be my family and my fiancé. I want nothing more than making them proud by creating something beautiful and special from scratch.
If you could sum up your day in three words what would those words be?
3 words to sum up my day will be design, print, pack. I have orders that can come through at 7 in the morning or even 10 at night so it’s an unpredictable time schedule which makes it interesting.
What does your workstation look like?
My workstation is my main haven. If it’s dirty I feel less productive and sometimes I can be a bit of a perfectionist with my space!
What are you most proud of achieving biz wise?
I am most proud of the fact that I left a steady job that involved late nights and really early mornings and started my own business to grow my dream.
What are your big goals for the next 12 months?
My goals for the next 12 months are to have a wider inventory on my website, get more sales and recognition and also to reach a larger audience on Instagram and gain more followers.
