Lauren Evans Interiors infuses a Northern California home with bold color, print and fun
“Our motto is all about curating a design style that reflects the client; it’s not about us,” says designer Lauren Evans about how she and her team approach every project. “We are not about putting the same stamp on all of our projects, we want to create a design fantasy for our clients. An elevated version of themselves and their imagined lifestyle.”
She applied this philosophy inside a 4,400-square-foot, spec home in Danville that was built by Mark One Development—for existing clients who love to be comfortable while living life to the fullest, which led to naming the residence ‘Project Fun House.’ “They craved color, personality and openness,” she recalls. “I knew they were fans of both Miami and California so we wanted to combine a little bit of neon, coastal elements, and a lounge ready feel.”
“This project was unique in that the builder had already starting working on the design of the bathrooms and parts of the kitchen with another interior designer,’ says Evans. “Since our clients hired us to take on all the design, we happily collaborated with Jeffrey Neve to complete the kitchen and continued designing the rest of the house.”
With the goal of curating fun remaining top of mind, they wrapped each room in bold hues, prints and textures. Evans installed pops of neon, a captivating dining room, indoor/outdoor bars and created a cozy, airy great room that is perfect for entertaining. After the clients moved in, Evans inquired how they felt about their new home—to which they remarked, “We are overjoyed and couldn’t be happier”.
