We have been working with Lauren Adele Design in relation to Interior Design for our period home in Newstead, country Victoria, for the past two-and-a-half years. In this period we have found her ability to brainstorm, design problem solve & product source at a very professional level & with great promptness. With particular reference to product sourcing, Lauren has managed to find materials resourcefully, both locally & internationally, in a remarkable timeframe. Lauren has a sound understanding of the construction process, which is reassuring & refreshing, often staying ahead of our tradesmen, promptly making decisions as issues arise. We look forward to working with her on our next construction stage & wish her the very best with her future in this field in which she obviously holds great passion for.
Lauren was perfect in understanding our needs & wants. She was very effective in extracting our desires for developing the brief & worked closely with us in refining the end result. We wanted a home that oozed warmth yet simplicity & her suggestions provided that & more. When people enter our home they are amazed at the wow Lauren brought to our home & everyone always comments on the features that were installed. We cannot recommend Lauren, her professionalism, her style, her eye for design & detail, & her realistic approach enough.
Thank you Lauren for helping us create the space that continues to excite & relax us everyday.

We engaged Lauren Adele Design to devise an interior & exterior colour palette, re-do all our flooring, & select furniture & accessories after our large 1850’s hospitality/ accommodation property was devastated by flooding. Lauren respected our taste & values and thoroughly researched & sourced to provide outcomes we were thrilled with. We then re-engaged LAD for our recent home renovation to design flooring, bathrooms, our kitchen, & interior/exterior colour palettes. Lauren is an inspired & creative thinker, listens & connects with our ideas, is punctual & always kept us informed with each step of the project. The Studio were lovely to deal with & always so generous with time.
LAD made our home renovation stress-free. Lauren’s space planning & design solutions & concepts for our 2 bathrooms, laundry, powder room & bedrooms were beyond what we could have imagined – we could not be happier. Lauren encouraged us to challenge our way of thinking & our priorities through clever exercises in the planning stage, which proved invaluable.
Lauren always went above & beyond with every detail of our renovation & we love how our home feels & looks – it’s so us. We are using LAD for the next stage of our renovation & cannot recommend them strongly enough. They are affordable, honest, ingenious & genuinely nice, which goes a long way these days! Thank you Lauren.
Lauren is incredibly attentive, always listening & taking in, appreciating our tastes, views & needs. She is flexible with style & doesn’t hold rigidly to a “brand” aesthetic, seeming to step right into our vision. She is very effective at researching & sourcing products from far and wide & puts a lot of effort into managing the process of product to client installation.
Lauren is timely & responsive & very professional in her communication, documentation & keeping us informed & up-to-date.
I engaged LAD in 2010 to redesign my butcher shop & delicatessen. I found Lauren & her team to be outstanding in their professionalism, dedication & attention to detail. I had a few ideas about how I wanted the shop to look, but for the main part it was a feeling that I wanted to evoke when customers entered the shop. In our initial meetings Lauren listened to the ideas I had & took them away. The designs & concepts she came back with exceeded all my expectations on how my shop would look. From the colours, lighting, function & styling, I couldn’t be happier with the final result. All this was done with no fuss, under budget & in a down-to-earth way. My shop is totally unique & I am constantly getting comments on how fantastic it looks & feels, & I owe it all to Lauren & her team. I am truly happy to recommend LAD, especially for people who know roughly what they want, but are not exactly sure what it is or how to achieve it.

For me, engaging an Interior Designer to help with my family bathroom & lavatory project was an exciting prospect. My priority was to find someone that could direct me toward an end result that reflected my own personality & lifestyle. Lauren was the perfect choice. Her natural & easy-going style is a perfect compliment to her business. It is clear that Lauren has a strong foundation in styling & design which enhances her ability to source & access amazing products while always respecting the budget. It was an incredibly rewarding experience working with Lauren. Although living with the project was tiresome, we had fun. Lauren was forever encouraging & positive, & we were able to execute the project with grace & humour.
LAD pays impeccable attention to the fine details with a project to ensure they convey what the client wants & needs. They build a personal & intimate relationship with the client, & hold in-depth knowledge of the structural layout of buildings to visualise the potential of a space.
