I discovered Lauren through Instagram & reached out to her to see if she would be up for sharing her home with us all on the blog. A few months later, here we are! Get ready to see a wonderful space that has been carefully curated.
"I am certified in interior design and as of now I help friends and family style their homes. I am working on moving forward with an interior design business. My husband and I live in Wilmington, NC with our 3 rescue dogs; Noah, Elvis, and Acorn. In addition to sprucing up our home and interior design, we own a video production company. We work from the Tin Roof (our home) so it can be difficult to concentrate while thinking of all the things I could be rearranging and adjusting around the house. Hah!" I also have a studio space where I paint in our home so I can totally relate to what Lauren is talking about.
Even though the entrance is small, Lauren has given it so much personality. The addition of agate drawer knobs on the wall create a spot to hang your coat or purse. Lauren's Uncle made the wooden console & the mirror from Home Goods is the perfect focal point. The main living space is an open floor plan & can be seen from many angles, keeping things simple & uncluttered in the foyer helps with the flow.
A pop of colour is added in the dining room with the addition of a bench. I love the oversized cacti print. "From southwestern flare to Persian rugs, I am truly inspired by all types of design and I love to sprinkle a little bit of everything throughout the entire home."
Lauren & her husband were lucky to find a home that didn't require any major renovations. The previous homeowners did a fantastic job on the kitchen. Considering that they only moved into their house last August, Lauren has done an incredible job making it feel like a home.
"We love our little eclectic home. It is surrounded by palm trees, succulents and beautiful foliage. We are a couple miles from the beach, so it is nice to step outside and smell the salty air. Our outdoor space with the sunroom, back deck and pool, is the perfect little oasis to entertain friends and family! And of course, let our 3 pups run around and play."
This shot allows you to see the open floor plan. I'm so jealous that they can cook & watch tv at the same time! When they moved in they repainted and changed the light fixtures & blinds. Easy fixes for anyone who wants to add their own personality to a space.
"The record player was my father in laws and he generously gave it to us when we moved in. We have a ton of great records but my favorite is Fleetwood Mac for sure!" I also listen to a lot of Fleetwood Mac in our home, so I think we would hit it off. She has good taste folks.
"My favorite room in the house is the living room. The room has large bay windows that bring in a ton of morning light. We love to sit in there each morning, drink our coffee, chat and hang with the pups. It's a great way to start the day."
"I will forever love interior design and helping others turns their house into a home. It’s definitely my passion." Thanks for sharing your home with us Lauren, & I know you are going to succeed with your new business.
