How to Make Contemporary Design Feel Timeless
Lauren Lerner — founder and lead designer of Scottsdale, Arizona-based firm Living With Lolo — creates spaces in the sweet spot between "choices that’ll still make sense in a decade" and "the best and brightest of what’s going on in the design world right now." That was her goal in reimagining this five-bedroom, five-bath home for her clients and their two nine-year-old daughters; they’d already lived in their home for several years and knew it was high time to shake things up. “Their main priority was making the kitchen more functional,” Lauren explains. “It is actually quite small and had no pantry and little cabinet space.” Starting from scratch, she reinvigorated their once stale rooms with crowd-pleasing and dynamic patterns, vibrant colors and rich finishes that resonate with current trends and will brighten the family headquarters for years to come. Take a closer look at how Lauren coaxed these spaces to life, and deploy her moves to help your own rooms live happily ever after.
