Why We’re Loving New Irish Stationery Company Dusty Boy Designs

Here at IMAGE we find that when there are some beautiful paper and notebooks on hand it suddenly becomes a necessity to leave the page at least as charming as you found it. Everyone’s handwriting becomes very upright and neat and if you make a mistake the Tip-Ex is immediately cracked open. No chocolate-smeared fingers or cups of tea near our lovely script work please.

That’s how we feel looking at Dusty Boy Designs. Created by Irish-based couple Kate Rose Crean and Justin Campbell and their adorable pup Polly, the Dusty Boy Designs website is so crisp and clean and everything is so covetable you could seriously do your entire Christmas shop there. Take a peek at their gorgeous Instagram if you don’t believe us! Word of warning though, the likelihood of you choosing to give away these so-called ‘gifts’ once they arrive is pretty minuscule. Sometimes you just NEED a dreamy desk pad and some Zebra notecards, you know?


We’ve picked out four of our favourite pieces – we’d pack the entire contents of their shop in here if we could – so you can start writing your Christmas wish list or begin doing some shopping yourself.

1.The Dreamy Desk Pad €29.95

Who knew someone could make all the scribbly notes around our computer look so elegant and cute?!

2. Dotty Greeting Card €3.45

We’re partial to this very Irish Thanks a Million greeting card.

3. Confetti Wedding Suite

Okay, so it was super hard to pick our favourite wedding suite, seriously, they’re all delightful.

4. Opulence Assorted Box Set €14.95

You’d know we really liked you if we sent you one of these, like bringing out the ‘good china’.

5. The Notebook Collection €12.95

Okay so this technically this is number 5  and there are five different notebooks but we just couldn’t leave them out!

So sweet you could practically eat them, attendees of Thursday’s Contemporary Christmas event will get one of these beauties to take down all the festive knowledge that’ll be flying around from our experts.

Delicious food + drinks + Christmas decorating tips + this?! So we’ll see you all Thursday then? 7.30 p.m. sharp!
