Designer Lauren Deloach of Lauren DeLoach Interiors says she 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. A sense of history in a home is a key element in Lauren’s philosophy. She works with clients to blend their family heirlooms with updated designs and fabrics to make each project truly one-of-a-kind.
One of my favorite projects by Lauren DeLoach is this soothing tranquil, home away from home, which is actually a suite near the top of the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta. This unique design opportunity to transform a raw residence for an out of own client via skype sounds like equal parts dreamy and challenging! Even though these breathtaking spaces appear to belong to a family’s primary home, they are actually located within the hotel.
The inspiration for the design? DeLoach says “I was absolutely inspired by the blue and gray shades of the Atlanta skyline seen throughout the rooms.” She incorporated quiet blues, grays, and greens and “washed the rooms with them…The rooms now feel like extensions of the views—nothing in the decor takes away from those “wow” moments.”

Another beautiful project I loved was her living room in the 2015 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Serenbe Designer Showhouse, a French Creole-style lakehouse.
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles writes: “Taking a soft, serene and slightly feminine approach, Lauren DeLoach describes the living room as a reflection of her personal style. Relishing the opportunity to act as her own client, the designer employed elegant fabrics to inject new life to furnishings such as antique French armchairs, while elevating accent tables with unexpected textures. Cast concrete garden stools were transformed into drink tables, and a lattice iron coffee table keeps things airy while allowing a full view of the Turkish rug. In lieu of artwork above the mantel, DeLoach made a bold statement by hanging antique Spanish doors procured from The Nicholson Gallery. “I have a real soft spot for antiques and exquisite details,” she says.”
And who can forget the stunning light blue kitchen and breakfast room DeLoach worked on with Matthew Quinn in this year’s Southeastern Designer Show House?
So many questions came my way after blogging about this kitchen six months ago that I consulted with Lauren about the project to get the inside scoop…so stay tuned for that interview!
