Hello & Welcome! My name is Kailey and I’m the proud owner of Dapper and Darling. I’m 29 years old and an avid lover of classic looks and beautiful graphic design. I live in Southern California.

After four years of successfully running KM Paperie, I decided it was time to expand and create designs for more than just weddings. This new vision is inspired by my always loving, and classically romantic husband Aaron. Aaron is my high school sweetheart and my best friend and a perfect inspiration for Dapper and Darling.

Before this, I studied designed for four years at Northern Arizona University for visual communication and design aesthetic. There I was taught to harness and conceptualize design as a subconscious way of life. I understood composition, the why behind why certain text and images look fabulous together, and embraced color as a blessing. I learned and applied all these ideals to what I do now. After graduating I took a job on the island of Hawai'i working with a passion driven ministry as their lead designer. As I designed for them, I learned how to manage a business and handle the influx of the never ending need for creative design. While learning all of this, which later I would apply to a business venture of my own, I began a love affair with the island. This island is also where the love of my life would propose. We were married a year later after moving back to the mainland on August 28, 2011.

Aside from my absolute love of design and my adoring husband, I enjoy being a nerdy, creative spirit. I spend time near the ocean whenever I can. I geek out to things like The Office, Harry Potter and  products (not just as a part time Apple Employee either), and have a strange obsession with old movies and the pandora music station, “Ink Spots”. I'm a gloriously outspoken romantic and can find beauty in anything while grabbing my sweethearts hand and heading out to into the world of unknown places and exploring life. One very important aspect of my life that makes me whole, is my relationship with my Heavenly Father. He allows me to be and do more than I could ever do alone. He created in me the ability to create beauty, and I take so much pride in being able to share that gift with so many people.
The history of a design studio. In 2008, I graduated from Northern Arizona University for visual communication and design aesthetic and begin my professional journey thought the design world. I understood composition, the why behind why certain text and images look fabulous together, and embraced color as a blessing. I learned and applied all these ideals to what I do now. After graduating I took a job on the island of Hawai'i working with a passion driven ministry as their lead designer. As I designed for them, I learned how to manage a business and handle the influx of the never ending need for creative design. While learning all of this, which later I would apply to a business venture of my own, I began a love affair with the island. This island is also where the love of my life would propose. We were married a year later after moving back to the mainland on August 28, 2011.

In May of 2010, KM Paperie was born. KM Paperie is a unique design studio that offers perfect designs for any occasion and need. Each design is crafted with talent and skill. We offer perfect combinations of multiple colors and pattern that can be customized and perfected for anyones personal style. Because of this, each piece is proudly a one-of-a-kind. The studio was started in the summer of 2010 by founder and designer and Kailey Santos. KM Paperie (KMP) went international in 2011, shipping all the way to Singapore and the Philippines.

In 2014 KMP began a new journey into printable design. From there, the availability of design work grew making it possible for anyone to own KMP design. Now any design can be created to become an easy to print work of art, from wedding invitations to holiday cards.

This new printable direction as also made it possible for KM Paperie owner, Kailey Santos, to branch into a new venture of design, one of which she fondly calls This Lovely Shop (a shop dedicated to the inspired heart). This shop opens up opportunity for after marriage design including beautiful options for wall art. The shop is a branch of a larger vision called This Lovely Space, created by both Kailey Santos and wire designer and fellow entrepreneur Regina Palacios of RLHCreations. This Lovely Space was launched early this year.

After over four years of love and dedication, KMP expanded to become Dapper and Darling. The studio was inspired by the romantically classic life that is led by my husband and myself. Read less
