It took going to law school for me to truly embrace my passion for design. I quickly pivoted, quit law school, and dove face-first into interior design. I've never looked back. I went on to receive my degree in interior design while working for a home furnishings store. After mastering the art of furnishings and decor, I decided I wanted to pursue architectural design and expand my services to full service design - and LO Design Studio was born! Since the firm’s beginning, I’ve hired a wonderful team and helped dozens of clients create their dream home. It’s been an absolute joy!

Lauren was a life safer for me. I remodeled an entire home and it was unbelievable all the small decisions that had to be made. The distant between shelves, the distance from the shelves to the floor, how long to hang pendant lights, what to do with unused space, what to do with awkward space, what type of window dressings add to the space, lighting, color....etc. Without the expertise of Lauren's keen sense of style and experience, I would have been lost. She was very attentive. My only regret is that I did not hire you from the onset. Thank you Lauren!

Having very little design sense of my own, I was confident putting our project in Lauren’s hands. She did not disappoint! She designed and managed our master bathroom remodel from start to finish. The little details are amazing and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. I can’t wait to have her remodel our kitchen!

Lauren and the professionals she recommended for our kitchen, laundry and half bath remodel/addition were fabulous! Lauren proposed options for our space beyond what I had imagined and left no detail unnoticed. She was incredibly responsive to my questions and patient throughout the whole process. Lauren and her team went above and beyond to make sure I was in LOVE with the end result. I have been told several times that my kitchen “looks like a picture from a magazine.” Thanks LOI!

"Lauren and her team are wonderful to work with! She really captured my personality and lifestyle in the design she created for my entry, living room, and primary bedroom. The furniture she selected is really comfortable, stylish, and quality built. I love walking into my home and seeing the beautiful and cohesive space she created. I'm looking forward to working with Lauren and her team on my next project. I could not have accomplished this stunning look without them. I highly recommend L.O. Design Studio; they excel in exceeding expectations!"

"I just wanted to let you know how much I love my home. The last years have been unpredictable, but my home feels just as it should. I truly appreciate you seeing it all through. You have given me the gifts of peace, solitude and beauty and I am beyond grateful!"

Lauren and her team are amazing. My whole house remodel was quite the undertaking and my home is truly transformed. The spaces that Lauren created are amazing.  

When it came time to update the media cabinet in our family room, calling LO Design was the best decision we could have made. Lauren designed a beautiful custom cabinetry that not only fit the large scale of the room, but blends beautifully with the style of our home. Lauren incorporated other design elements into the room, giving it a timeless, fresh, yet relaxed feel. Since our initial design project with Lauren, we have called on her to help accessorize other rooms in our home. Now these rooms, flow beautifully into one another. Most recently, we remodeled a guest bathroom, and without hesitation, called Lauren to create a design. As expected, the design was classic, fresh, and elevated our bathroom in ways, we could not have attained ourselves. We value Lauren's design expertise, and highly recommend LO Design. 

"Calling LO Design was the best decision we could have made."

"She listens to your needs and ideas and brings her expertise to your project. Use of color is one of her strengths. I always have Lauren advise me on colors and use of texture. If you haven’t been in her studio be sure to check it out. Home decor and wonderful gift ideas. She has it all!"

"Lauren is delightful to work with!"
