Hello, I am Lauren Burns, the Founder and Creative Director of Livia Paul. Prior to beginning this adventure, I was a Creative Director for several global brands while working in advertising and marketing. I have always had a deep love for art and design and as my entrepreneurial spirit became too loud to ignore, I knew it was time to follow my passion. The beautiful world of stationery is my happy place and brings me immeasurable amounts of joy.


  1. I studied abroad in London, my favorite city.
  2. I designed the packaging for Dr Pepper Cherry. I. Love. Packaging.
  3. I would rather buy a new typeface than new shoes.
  4. I share this exciting ride with two beautiful children and one lucky husband. I’m pretty lucky too.
  5. Style Me Pretty featured my stationery four times in my first year.
  6. I am a proud graduate of Stationery Academy.
  7. Every year my husband gifts me with a replica of my wedding bouquet for our anniversary. Take note grooms-to-be.
  8. I am scared of heights, but I have gone sky diving twice.
  9. My dog Ralphie has won two St. louis Mardi Gras Wiener Dog Derby titles. He is currently retired.
  10. I love the smell of ink and paper like a writer loves the smell of a book.
