HOW WE GOT HERE

02 HOW WE GOT HERE

An Origin Story

When we met in design school, little did we know that budding friendship would lead to a undeniable design duo.

Today, we live our dream jobs but that wasn’t always the case.  After years of making the morning commute and grinding towards designs that were beautiful, but just not our passion, we decided to make a change. We would meet up and occasionally spit ball and daydream of opening our own design firm specializing in unique and thoughtfully crafted homes and boutique businesses. We always wanted to make a difference with our designs – the logical choice being the place people long to be at. We wanted to bring a touch of life and personality to the spaces around us using antique features with fresh modern approaches.

 

So, when Sarah decided to leave the 9-5 behind, Lauren was quick to follow. This was when we knew now was the time to realize our dreams. Ever since that day, we have worked hard to bring residential and boutique design to its most authentic state – caring about our clients and understanding the environment they want to be in.

The design firm we’ve crafted is one that cares – for its clients as much as its designers. We understand life is changing, ever moving and imperfect. We strive to work with the ebb and flow of life in a way that nurtures our creative spirit and allows our work to unfold before us. We would like to invite you to be part of this journey with us.
