I'm Lauren. Interior designer & stylist, serial home builder, bookworm, wife and mum to one little boy.
My journey into design began in 2012 when my hubby, Nels, and I, designed and constructed our first home. We would work all day in our regular jobs and spend our evenings framing, tiling and painting - living our best life. While counting beans in my corporate job I would find myself dreaming up design finishes and itching to pull on my boots and get back on site. Fast forward five years and five new residential construction projects later (plus a stack of informal design consultations for family and friends), I was fortunate enough to turn my passion and side 'job' into my profession and launched House of Smith.
Few things make me happier than creating a home that brings families joy and spaces they love to live in. I love collaborating with my clients to bring to life the beautiful, inviting and functional home they have always dreamed of.
Everyday life usually finds me pouring over design selections, almond cappuccino in hand, or spending time with my favourite people - preferably at the beach!
