Client Experience
"Lauren was so helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and kind! She was very understanding about our needs and budget, and offered so many wonderful ideas and approaches in such a short amount of time, including a quick sketch of some custom cabinet/shelving solutions. It was a delightful power hour of ideas - highly recommend! "

"The initial consultation was extremely helpful. Thinking about the order in which to stage the room(s) was very helpful, along with shapes, sizes, etc. I now have a new rug for the front room that I really like and looking forward to speaking with Lauren soon on fabrics and other details!"

"Meeting with Lauren was so incredibly helpful for me in the design process. I've been designing a couple bathrooms for months but have been feeling stuck and unsure and lacking the courage to pull the trigger on such expensive and permanent decisions. Lauren helped talk me through all my concerns and gave tons of great advice as well as products and designs to look at for inspiration. I'm feeling much more confident in my choices and excited to move forward! "

"Lauren was absolutely phenomenal and a joy to talk to. My husband and I were both nervous about taking on our first big renovation, but Lauren honed in on exactly what we were looking for and provided a clear game plan for everything from paint and floors to lighting and layout. We both feel much more confident--and are so happy we spoke to Lauren before jumping into the project. "

"Lauren packed an incredible amount of valuable information into our time together! She solved a tricky bathroom layout for me, giving me several potential solutions and prioritizing them. She provided suggestions on where to find products as well. We had eight minutes to spare and she gave me an entire plan for our mudroom/laundry room!"

"This was my second expert session with Lauren and I’m so happy I continue to be able to get time with her and get clarity and inspiration on my home design. She is so down to earth and mindful of budget and personal aesthetic. I love that I leave our calls with a ton of information that I can start applying on my own. "

"Lauren was awesome! I’m basically starting from zero with a house that has no architectural interest so I had a lot of questions. She patiently addressed all of them and gave me ideas I never would have thought of on my own. She did some sketches and showed me other inspiration pictures as well. I now have a better vision and a plan for getting started. Feeling so much more excited and confident about what I need to do now. Can’t wait to schedule another session down the road! "

By the end of the meeting she had helped me with paint colors, lighting, window treatments, cabinet design, hardware- you name it.

"Lauren was very knowledgeable! She was able to break down our rooms and explain what was and wasn’t working in a clear and easy to understand manner. She gave excellent concrete advice about furniture size, placement and colors. The best part was she explained “why” things work well certain ways and not others!"

"Lauren was a great help in thinking through finishes for our kitchen. She provided ideas for paint colors to complement our ivory stove, educated me on the different choices of stone and tile, and helped me hone in our cabinetry plan. She also provided specific sources for tile and fixtures and helped me think through the layout of our living room space. Definitely recommend! I just wish we had more time."

"Really great experience. Lauren offered simple, easily executed ideas I never would have thought of on my own that have made my new build so unique but also classic and classy! We designed the exterior of my home, including exterior lighting, came up with ideas for wood paneling inside (she sketched on the fly) and so much more. Thank you!"

"This experience was exceptional. Lauren was able to process the information we gave her and design a floor plan solution in minutes that we have struggled with for months. We then moved on to tile finishes, paint colors and materials for our new custom home. She listened and was able to create a direction for us to move into. Lauren showed us what can be done and how to go about doing it. Thank you so much! Until next time."
