Brand New Musings

Lauren Muse, the designer that helped me with my own house here in New York, just updated her portfolio with these lovely images.  Lauren and I still keep in touch even though my home is for the most part “done”.  Not only do I adore Lauren’s aesthetic, but she’s very easy to get along with and didn’t let any of the stressful bits of our renovation visibly freak her out…and, trust me, there were some moments.  Having Lauren’s calm presence on board made the process a whole lot less frustrating.  Something to think about if your looking for a professional to help you out.

  8. I love her style – very fresh and clean, without being "cute." Rooms that look like adults live in them!
