Smarties, we’re thrilled for you to meet Smarty Mama, Lauren Clement, of Lauren Nicole Designs and soon-to-open home store in South Charlotte, Lila HOME. We will be featuring Lauren’s talented ideas throughout the season. She has a true gift of design. Enjoy her lookbook below! ~Jen
My name is Lauren Clement and I am a Mom first and a full time award winning interior decorator as a very close second. As the owner and lead designer at Lauren Nicole Designs for the last 7 years and a Mom to Finley, age 3, and Campbell, age 2, you could say that I have a full and beautiful life!
I started my career as an interior decorator in 2006, after 21 years of living with a decorator Mother. I watched her create a successful career for herself in conjunction with being a very hands-on mom to me, all while following her passion and love for creativity. She is my inspiration and I now enjoy ‘oooohing’ and ‘ahhhhing’ along side of her in the world of interior decorating.
I have a simple philosophy when it comes to interior design, function+style=success. I take the time to learn about the functional needs of my clients and then I combine my design expertise with their taste to create a plan that is tailor made for their home and their lifestyle. As a Mom of two toddlers I know that unless you can sit on it, wipe it off, climb on it and use it every day, the beauty factor doesn’t last. I love hearing from my clients that they love living in their newly decorated spaces.
I have spent the last 7 years living and working in Leesburg, VA and we have just relocated to Charlotte this past Summer. My husband is a native Virginian but I spent most of my youth in the Carolinas, so when the opportunity came for us to move our family to Charlotte, I was truly elated. I am a Southern girl at heart and I am thrilled to raise our girls in such a wonderful environment.
In addition to learning about all of the wonderful things that Charlotte has to offer, I am excited to begin working with the wonderful residents of Charlotte to help them create their dream homes. My design studio will be housed in our retail store, Lila HOME by Lauren Nicole Designs, in the Toringdon Circle shopping center. Lila HOME is the result of my Mother and I teaming up to do what we both love…make people and their homes look and feel fabulous. Lila, the combination of our names (Linda and Lauren) will boast home décor pieces and accessories as well as fashion accessories such as scarves and hand bags and a fantastic assortment of gifts for all occasions. With our opening planned for early November, I hope to see and meet many of you there!
I am looking forward to being a part of the amazing Smarty Pants world and I invite you all to Watch Beautiful Happen with me!
You will find Lila HOME in early November at:
