Hi, I’m Lauren!

My mission is to achieve a high end lifestyle on a realistic budget. It has been my passion for years to find the life hacks that make great home design, personal style, travel and more accessible and approachable. And now I am funneling what I’ve learned into design services that allow my clients to achieve professionally design spaces in a quick turn format, while remaining budget friendly.

This site started as a blog that was a collection of mementos during a time when my husband and I decided to put our house on the market, and move back to our hometown of Asheville, NC to live in an old tobacco barn until we figured out what we really wanted to do with our lives.

After living in the barn we became a military family while my husband worked as an Air Force Jag.

That adventure took us to the snowy tundra of South Dakota, followed by the hot desert of Turkey, where we welcomed our first daughter and spent nearly two years on what felt like perpetual vacation (with some extreme highs and some very low lows).

We left Turkey right as things were heating up, decided to separate from the Air Force, got pregnant with our second daughter, and returned again to our hometown of Asheville, North Carolina where we bought a little brick ranch house that ended up being our first flip.

Eventually we took a better job offer and made yet another move to Greenville, South Carolina where we have been upgrading our 90’s builder grade home for the past few years.

After spending a few years building an online community in the DIY and home design arena, I decided to call it a day on social media and refocused my efforts solely into interior design. I became a Co-owner and designer at The Nomadic Home, along with my business partner Cindy.

The Nomadic Home marries years of real estate knowledge from my partner with years of interior design experience from myself to bring clients practical yet beautiful design with a high end feel, smart functionality, and affordability for real life budgets.

See our website or my Design Services page for more information.

This life has been a whirlwind, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m glad you’re here!
