Lauren Capitani has lived in every time zone in the United States, allowing her to transform a variety of spaces and styles — pre-war apartments in Manhattan, Victorian flats in San Francisco, adobe houses in Santa Fe. Through the changing landscapes, Lauren formed design principles that endure no matter what the locale ...​

  • Simple reconfigurations can improve livability and flow.

  • Nuanced design is possible at any price point.

  • Mixing makes a home bespoke, whether old with new, high end with affordable, all-the-rage with only-yours.

  • Style does not come in one-size-fits-all. What looks fabulous in one setting might not work in another.

  • Curated paint, furniture, and accessories allow for current appeal with flexibility. Avoid trends for fixtures (think farmhouse sinks and oval tubs), which will look dated in a few years and are harder to swap.

Lauren lives in Belmont, MA with her 3 daughters, 2 dogs, and 1 husband. When not designing, thinking about designing, or working for the Stanford GSB, she spends her time running, cooking, and shepherding water glasses back to the kitchen.​
