She believes in living a simpler, more relaxed life in homes that are real, natural and lack pretense, and encourages an appreciation of the natural beauty around us and fully enjoying the present moment with those we love. She and her husband/business partner, David, host the HGTV show Best House on the Block, which features the design and renovation of Washington, DC-area homes by the couple.

Lauren’s first book, bestselling Habitat: The Field Guide to Decorating, was published in Fall of 2015 and was chosen by NPR as a “Book of the Year.” Her newest book, Down To Earth: Laid Back Interiors for Modern Living, was released in October 2019 and was also a bestseller. She has furniture collections, a tile collection, a kitchen cabinet collection, and a fabric line.
