Lauren, with her excellent sense of color and thoughtful, cohesive approach, produces quality design and a captivating final product. Clients trust her attentiveness to detail and her diligence to keep jobs organized and on track.

Lauren, what drew you into the field of interior design?

When I was five or six years old, I made my own wallpaper sample book. My parents were selecting a wallpaper, and I was so fascinated with the colors and patterns I decided to create my own. My love of design began there and continued to grow stronger through my teen and adult years.
 
What would you say are key components to quality design?

Attention to detail, functionality, and of course, overall aesthetic.
 
Where do you get your inspiration?

Everywhere! Magazines, travels, items the client owns, a single fabric...anything can inspire design.

How do you believe design reflects a person's style and personality? 

I always like to include pieces and colors the client loves. Whether it be a collection from travels, sentimental family heirlooms, or a favorite color, incorporating the things clients’ treasure can be a great way to infuse their unique styles and personalities into their spaces.
 
What is your approach to color?

I have always been a huge lover of color! My approach is to use neutrals for the larger items, like a sofa, and layer several coordinating colors as accents: rugs, pillows, art, lamps, and accessories. My favorite palettes mix warm and cool tones.
 
What’s your favorite paint color?

Sherwin Williams Silver Strand SW 7057. It’s such a soft, calming hue.
 
What can’t you live without?

My music! Music has such a powerful impact on my state of mind and mood, especially during the commute to and from work. Music is inspirational, motivational, and just good for the soul.

Lauren graduated from the University of Alabama with a bachelor's degree from the College of Human Environmental science majoring in Interior Design. Lauren's organizational skills and fondness for to-do lists aid her in keeping track of her projects throughout the entire design process. Her attention to the overall efficiency of a space and ability to come up with creative, custom solutions aids her in creating functional and beautiful designs for her clients.
 
 
What drew you into the field of interior design? 

I grew up in a house full of engineers… they needed to know every detail of every piece and figure out how something was going to fit together and work well in order to create something wonderful… like a puzzle. Interior Design, for me, is like a big creative puzzle. While keeping the clients’ wants and needs in mind, we pull the pieces of efficiency and beauty together to create their ideal dream space… the look on their face at the end of an installation is priceless. Puzzle completed!
 
 
What would you say are key components to quality design?

I would say the number one component for me is efficiency and flow of the space… it’s no fun to have a beautiful space and not be able to use it to its full potential. 
 
Where do you get your inspiration/ideas? 

A lot of times, I will start my design process by finding a scenic picture of the area where my project is located… I can pull colors and shapes from the surrounding area to create a unique, beautiful and welcoming space for clients… and of course the occasional Pinterest deep dive is also helpful for inspiration!
 
How do you believe design reflects a person's style and personality? 

Design is such a diverse concept… there is no right or wrong way to design a space. There is free reign to be able to use whatever colors, patterns, or furniture pieces you want! But I think the element of design that lends itself more to expressing a personality is color. You can use your favorite color, a color that makes you feel happy, a color that makes you feel relaxed… anything you want… You can completely transform a room into truly your space just by the color used in the room!
 
What is your approach to color?

It depends on the client but the most common route I’ll take is a neutral paint palette and bring in color with accessories, artwork, and furniture.
 
What’s your favorite paint color? 

Rocky River by Sherwin Williams- it is by far my favorite paint color for accent millwork!
 
What can’t you live without? 

My family and my dog, Milo!

Cassie Foshee is an Associate Interior Designer at Accents of the South. She has recently graduated from the University of Alabama (roll tide) with her degree in interior design and ceramics. She has always loved interiors, art, and being creative. Organizing is one of her strengths along with creating exciting and stimulating spaces to be in. Interior design is perfect for her because she is able to use both halves of her brain-the left for creating precise and functional construction plans, and the right for creating a beautiful aesthetic within those plans. Her favorite items to incorporate in her designs are sentimental pieces that are meaningful to the client- your home should reflect who you are as a person! 
 
 
What drew you into the field of interior design?
 
I’ve always been infatuated by the exteriors of homes, especially historic ones. Every Christmas my family drives through the streets of Downtown Huntsville with the windows down to marvel at the well decorated homes. I would always try to imagine how they were decorated on the inside and what kind of family was enjoying them. This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions and it instilled a love for architecture and design in me at a young age. My dad shares this curiosity and passion with me and has built and flipped many homes. I would help him with different tasks such as floor plan layouts, material choices, and manual labor. As I’ve grown up, I’ve realized how much the environment that I’m in affects my mood, productivity, and mental health. I pursued my degree in interior design so that I could create positive and impactful spaces for people to enjoy.

What would you say are key components to quality design?
 
Color, scale, emphasis, and quality space planning. These components work together to create an aesthetically pleasing environment that is also functional. I believe color is an extremely important factor in design because it can directly affect a person’s mood. Scale and emphasis create variation within a room to make it more dynamic and interesting. Space planning is essential for the layout of a room to make it the most functional that it can be.
 
Where do you get your inspiration/ideas?
 
I get my inspiration and ideas from social media, books, and nature. I follow tons of different designers and design enthusiasts on Instagram and I am continuously surprised and refreshed by different designs and ideas that I see. I love flipping through my design coffee table books to see what other designers have done to create interesting spaces. My favorite magazine to look through is Architectural Digest. Nature is the best place to gain inspiration because it is always changing- and God is the best designer of all! I love organic shapes, the colors of nature, and PLANTS! Nature has so many different aspects that can be directly related to an interior space and I love incorporating it into my designs.
 
How do you believe design reflects a person's style and personality?
 
A person’s design style shows who they are as a person and how they function in their daily life. Type A people may have a more straight-lined, minimalistic design style while a type B person like myself enjoys maximalism-even if it can be chaotic.
 
What is your approach to color?
 
I personally love to use bright colors and patterns in my designs- depending on the space. Accents and pops of color are a great way to add some fun into your home, whether that be from paint, pillows, furniture, or artwork. Some rooms, such as a bathroom or bedroom, call for soothing blues and greens. While other rooms, such as an office or kitchen, call for brighter colors to inspire you and keep you stimulated. I love to create unexpected color combinations and I am not afraid of mixing patterns.

What’s your favorite paint color?
 
At the moment, I am loving Citrona by Farrow and Ball. It is bright & refreshing. It would be great for an accent wall or a feature color in a mural.
 
 
What can’t you live without?
 
My family, friends, plants, and pets! I have 3 rescue dogs (Boogie, Sammi, and Marley) and one cat named Bubby. I would also be deprived without queso and margaritas!
