Why do you love traditional design? I love incorporating a sense of history. This is why I always design with antiques, which add layers of time and liv-ing. You just can’t buy that new. Who are your design idols? Growing up, I pored over design magazines and loved Charles Faudree; he is the reason I love checks. I’m also a big fan of At-lanta designers Dan Carithers, Suzanne Kasler, Robert Brown, and Jackye Lanham. What is your take on these traditional staples? Lauren used Mark Alexander fabrics and Gramercy linens for this condo bedroom. 96 A TL ANT A MA GAZINE ’ S HOME SPRING 2 0 1 6 PRO RESOURCES laurendeloachinteriors.com.
