  • Since joining Alb Media, Lauren has interviewed celebrities from design shows on networks such as MTV, HGTV, Bravo TV, Magnolia Network, and more.
  • After buying her first house, Lauren realized her love for personal style translated to the home. She is constantly looking for one-of-a-kind, unique pieces to add to her space, whether she's at a thrift store or on the other side of the world. As a lover of travel, Lauren has visited eight countries so far and likes to find and incorporate pieces from each destination into her home's design scheme.
  • Lauren is a firm believer that you don't need to pay designer prices to have a beautiful, cozy living space that reflects your personality. As an ardent thrifter, she believes that knowing when and where to shop secondhand, in addition to a little patience and luck, can help you score some amazing finds.
