Interview with Lauren DeLoach of Lauren DeLoach Interiors

Welcome to a brand new series of Designer Spotlights, focusing on the group of top designers who will bring to life the Diamonds of Design Vignette Exhibition at AmericasMart beginning in January 2017. In celebration of AmericasMart’s sixtieth anniversary, this select group of designers will bring to life their most inspiring design moments, eras and lifestyles of the last 60 years using their favorite finds from the market. The next one of our designers to be featured is…Lauren DeLoach! An Atlanta native, Lauren DeLoach will pair up with fellow designer Anna Braund to bring their own unique perspectives to a shared design vignette in January. This talented designer embraces timeless Southern design with a fresh approach; finding inspiration in architecture, antiques, and art, Lauren combines comfortable with classic to bring her updated traditional style to residences across the South. REstyleSOURCE recently chatted with Lauren, in a brief Q&A which will not only give our readers some background on her design philosophy, but also what they can expect to see from her Diamonds of Design Vignette at AmericasMart Atlanta in January…

How did you get started in the world of interior design? I don’t know if there has been a day in my life when I wasn’t drawing or creating something! Before I ever studied interior design, I was always interested in antiques and interiors. I remember rearranging my furniture in my room all the time as a kid. I also loved touring showhouses and going antique shopping with my mom. All of that, in addition to every class I took and every job I had, have influenced my work today.

What inspires your creativity? What doesn’t? I find myself constantly inspired by fabric designers. I typically start with fabrics in a room and grow the concept from there.

Diamonds of Design will focus on style standouts of the last 60 years. Which design icon, style or era from the last 60 years particularly inspires you? Anyone that had timeless, classic style. I think it is wonderful to look back at figures such as fashion icon C.Z. Guest, who served as our vignette inspiration, to see how relevant her style is today.

LDL circleDesigner Tips…

…On shopping the market?  It is a good idea to make a list of the showrooms you know you want to visit. I try to collect a card from new showrooms I like and write what I liked on the backs to help me remember.

…On creating a distinctive style? Use things that are special to you–not everything has to be precious and perfect. I love to layer fine things like silver or china with more casual things (homespun linen, pottery) to create a warm mix.

LJF circleREstyleSOURCE Loves Local

We are all about ‘loving local’—from designers and manufacturers right down to local brick & mortar shops and eateries! What are some of your favorite local shops and restaurants to visit when you’re in Atlanta?

Le Jardin Francais (seen at left) on the west side is always full of inspiration; Marie-Laure’s natural French floral design is unmatched in this city. The shops on Miami Circle are always full of fantastic things. I find myself at Joseph Konrad most often for their mix of accessories and antiques.
