Kind Words From Happy Sanctuary Homes


Lauren was such a joy to work with and we are so thankful for friends who highly recommended her. She creatively designed and supervised the remodel of our master bathroom, guest bathroom, and built-in cabinetry in the dining room & master bedroom/bath. We were especially pleased with her selection of stone, hardware, lighting, color coordination, and her keen sense of attention to the smallest detail. We were also impressed with the craftsman she introduced for stone cutting, flooring, installation, and finishing touches.

We can see that Lauren listens to her clients’ needs and translates that into a beautiful and functional space.

We love working with Lauren! We first worked with her on a small bathroom remodel about five years ago. At that time, we were throwing around the idea of redoing the front of the house and discussed it a bit with Lauren. When the time came to finally do it, we called her immediately. Her taste is impeccable. She listens to what you want and is able to translate it into a unique design that illustrates exactly what has been described. She works within the budget given. In addition, she is such a lovely person. Her style is quite, sophisticated, happy, and calm. She is a joy to work with and I look forward to working with her again and again!

Lauren is very detailed and has a very good total overview of the project. She is easy to work and was always considerate of my ideas and concerns. For me personally, I like that she finishes the project….. from towels to floor mats.

Lauren was so wonderful to work with. Ours was a challenging project, a retail space for a women’s clothing boutique. We had a lot to get done in a short amount of time, but she handled the task with grace and professionalism. From our first creative brainstorms to getting city permits and working with contractors on custom pieces like a cash wrap station made of reclaimed wood, Lauren got everything done on time and within my budget. I highly recommend her!

We worked with Lauren initially on a redo of our office and loved working with her so much that there was no question that we turn to her in remodeling our master and guest bath. With Lauren’s design expertise and guidance, they turned out beautiful and the process was seamless. Also, we could not be more positive about all the tradespeople she brought in. The stonework and cabinetry are perfect. We have since had her help us replace our tile and carpet with wood floors. Lauren is a joy to work with and a very talented designer. We will be working with her again when we are ready to do our kitchen.

Lauren was recommended to us by our friends, and I’m sure glad we hired her! We redecorated our master bedroom, master bathroom, and secondary bathroom. Her creative and professional services helped me select colors, fabrics, and design decisions that resulted in serene and comfortable rooms. Lauren was able to hear our ideas and provided us with beautiful ideas. I would much rather see a small selection of great choices, rather than be bombarded with a store full of choices. Lauren was flexible about meeting times and her cheerful, fresh attitude made her a pleasure to work with.

I recently hired Sanctuary design and their team to design the interior in my house. The quality of design and attention to detail was exactly what I was looking for. The interior furnishings, accessories, & budget were all spot on and I was very happy with their work. Very professional and on time, plus they met our deadline. My house transformed from an average home into a beautiful home. After Lauren and her team completed their work, I accepted an offer to sell my house within one week. Without Sanctuary Design’s work, there is no way I would have sold my house as fast as I did!

I am fortunate to have represented the seller on a home recently renovated by Sanctuary Design, Inc. The property was impeccably finished, beautifully staged (also by Sanctuary Design), and had 3 offers within 5 days and sold on the 5th day. The property included custom soft-close cabinets and limestone counters in the kitchen, hardwood floors throughout the main level, custom crown and base moldings, limestone tile entry, custom built bathroom cabinets, intricately designed rock shower tub enclosure, and bathroom floor. Extensive outdoor decking, paint, and a showpiece, one-of-kind wine barrel table with limestone top completed the back deck design. I attribute the fast and popular sale to the beautiful work done by Sanctuary Design.

Lauren did a wonderful job with the remodel of my cabin in the mountains. She listened and responded to my requirements, incorporated my own pieces and ideas into the overall design, and yet brought her own exquisite taste and knowledge to enhance the project beyond my wildest dreams. Lauren was available, checked in with me frequently before and after the various steps, and able to keep things at or below budget. She was always professional but she was also a very personable and gracious guest to my home. I think she’s great and I will definitely use her services in the future!
