Nestled under the Topa Topa Mountain Range in Ojai, Lawren’s entire home exudes rustic natural energy, layers of juxtaposed textures, and a bold purity of intention.
Warm woods streaked with subverted sunshine and the dappled tones of candlelight. Weighty stoneware interspersed with the glint of mixed metals. Nature ascending the walls in leafy splendor.
“The moment I try to define my style, I feel pigeonholed. I'm attracted to old houses, old things, and masculine things, like dark wood rooms, leather furniture, and brass hardware. But, I also like pops of color.”
Monochromatic layers give a floaty luxuriousness to the bed, as inky vines chase your eye around the room—like dreams spanning out with natural exuberance into the new day.
Splash of Color
Well-orchestrated lines of tile and thoughtful wood accents pull your attention into the room, as the sunsplashed edges of the clawfoot tub invite you to sit and soak a while.
Refreshing waters surrounded by a parade of desert succulents and lush greenery—mountains peeking over the treeline to catch a glimpse of this restorative oasis.
For Lawren, living in Ojai is the realization of a cherished fantasy, being able to “raise my kids with a deeper connection to nature.”
"Opposites attract, like texture and shine."
Gazing out over the reflective water into the shaded pathways meandering under the trees, Lawren exists in gratitude. Her sanctuary a welcoming space to laugh with friends and break bread with loved ones.
Crafting a living space with a young family pulls Lawren’s focus to comfort and livability, from fluffy pillows to soft throws perfect for snuggling.
Lawren draws from years of experiences in California and New York, with brands like Kate Spade, Vogue, and Architectural Digest. “Both coasts and both urban lifestyles have deeply influenced my work and career.”
Ivan Shaw, Executive Photography Director Vogue, said it best, “Her strong creative vision and classic American approach to fashion is at once timeless yet always modern.”
