Hi, I’m Lauren!
Welcome to The Styled Ivy, my creative haven for everything home decorating and design. I’ve always loved turning a house into a home, ever since I was a little girl watching my own mom put special creative touches on every corner of where we lived. It always felt like a castle, yet still warm and cozy!
And now as a wife and mom of three, I still find such joy in decorating any space. My background in writing/blogging and media relations has allowed me to take that knack for decorating and turn it into a place for YOU to learn and be inspired.
And I’m so happy to have you here…
We currently reside in the Chicago suburbs, but prior to that had an opportunity to live abroad in Barcelona for four years. Aside from the amazing architecture, food, (sangria!) and culture, I was so inspired by the different styles of interior decorating.
Ultra contemporary, boho chic, rustic elegance and Scandinavian vibes are all the rage on that side of the pond and my creative juices were on overdrive!
Now that we’re settled back in the states and have a new house to make our home, I cannot wait to get started and share the journey with you! I like to think my style is a blend between classic elegance and rustic chic. Like, if Restoration Hardware and Ballard Home had a baby!
Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest for my design picks, project updates and (soon!) shopable photos of my favorite home decor items. As always, contact me with any feedback or questions!
