You regular readers know from time to time I like to interview and feature designers or stylists that inspire me greatly, and the latest addition to my list of favorites is Lauren Muse of Muse Interiors. I stumbled across her portfolio a few months ago and was so impressed with her spaces, I had to contact her and tell her so!
Lauren’s room designs have appeared in several publications from New England Home to HGTV, and I’m sure we will continue to see much more of her work inside shelter magazines for years to come. Lauren graciously agreed to answer some of my questions, so please enjoy our conversation and after seeing her designs, I’m sure you’ll be a huge fan too.
CG: Hi Lauren, tell us a little about yourself, your background, your education, and how long you’ve been a designer.
LM: I started Muse Interiors in 2000 after going to New York School of Interior Design. I grew up and now live in Greenwich with my husband and two children.
CG: Your spaces are all so sophisticated yet casual, classic and still modern, filled with tailored yet livable furnishings. What’s the design philosophy behind the look?
LM: The design philosophy behind the look is to maintain a transitional timeless style, rather than solely modern or traditional. This way the home stays current for years to come. Like you mentioned, there is a balance to our work. A mixture of clean lines and complex patterns with an elegant, yet livable atmosphere that is evident in the design.
