Lauren Clement of Lauren Nicole Designs has been designing spaces for nearly a decade. Her own South Charlotte home, which she recently moved into, embodies her ability to take a functional space and design it beautifully. Her family room is the perfect reflection of her taste: It’s a light and airy room with a punch of color. “I am a farm girl at heart, so I love rustic elements,” she says. To achieve some rusticity in her own living space, she pulled in the wood beam mantel and the shiplap wall, but balanced the rustic with a bright, preppy feel, using accent pillows and colorful artwork. All of the elements in the space work together to create a comfortably stylish space for Lauren’s friends and family to enjoy.
