Lauren Clement, owner of LAUREN NICOLE DESIGNS, knows that your home is a reflection of your personality, inspiration and attitude. Bringing together those concepts, as well as the latest interior design styles, for your home or office should be an easy process that not only defines your individuality, but also welcomes others to share in your life and passions.
The focus of Lauren Nicole Designs is always on their clients’ needs, whether redecorating a bedroom or designing a new kitchen, the end result is what matters most – that gasp from a client as the final project is revealed for the first time.
Lauren’s attention to detail and personal consideration of your style, budget and lifestyle all come together in a beautiful representation of your unique personality. A professional designer since 2006, Lauren’s diligent attention to detail allows her to create rooms that are both beautiful and functional at the same time. Having put this philosophy into practice designing for her own family of four (plus two cats and three dogs), Lauren understands how crucial it is for a home to work for its owners.
“I can design the most beautiful space,” she says, “but if it doesn’t function for the family that lives there, then it doesn’t matter.”
OLD TAYPORT PLACE FAMILY ROOM
Neighborhood: South Charlotte
Photographer: Jim Schmid Photography
Lauren’s own South Charlotte home showcases her ability to seamlessly combine function and beauty. The family room is the perfect reflection of her taste — a light and airy room with natural elements and a punch of color. “I’m a farm girl at heart, so I love rustic elements,” she says. To create a farmhouse-chic feel in her living space, Lauren pulled in the reclaimed wood beam mantel and the shiplap wall, but balanced the rustic with a bright, preppy feel using colorful accent pillows and artwork. And since this particular room didn’t have very tall ceilings, Lauren chose a drum-shaped light fixture, wider than it is tall, to balance the space. Meanwhile, the Roman shades allow in natural light while showcasing the sweeping golf course views. All of the elements in the room work together to create a comfortably stylish space for Lauren’s family and friends to enjoy.
“Inspiration is everywhere I look — nature, artwork, new fabrics, textures, patterns, other designers’ viewpoints, my children,” Clement says. “I love to stop, observe, feel and see inspiration wherever I go. It’s all about combining certain elements.” Read more on Lauren Nicole Designs Houzz profile.
LONGVIEW OAKMONT TEEN BEDROOM
Photographer: D. Randolph Foulds Photography
Architectural details, a quiet color palette and unique fixtures define this Longview Oakmont estate, and the 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom perfectly pairs the home’s natural elegance with a youthful vibe. The bed is tucked away in a private alcove, separated by handmade rope draperies from Cyprus, Greece. Meanwhile, the hanging swing provides a relaxing place to lounge at any time of the day, whether studying or gossiping with friends. The combination of neutral textiles with weathered woods and various textures of rope create several layers of interest within the design. It is the perfect haven for a teen girl to escape to.
GLEN EAGLES MASTER BATHROOM
Neighborhood: Quail Hollow
Photographer: Jim Schmid Photography
This master bathroom was a 1996 original, so it was time for a big refresh. The layout of the space worked great, so the footprint remained the same while all materials were gutted and new fine finishings were added. The sleek color combination of the modern whites and greys combined with traditional elements keep this space in line with the rest of the home in a current traditional feel. The polished nickel finish on all fixtures is the icing on the cake for this space, along with that amazing free-standing soaking tub! functional as well as beautiful lighting is a must in every bathroom, and these fixtures do not disappoint.
Lauren Nicole Designs is capable of fulfilling any client’s needs, whether it’s a simple word of advice from a professional designer, or an entire home interior remodel. Lauren works within the greater Charlotte area and beyond.
