A Nautical Nursery With Designer, Lauren McKay

D E S I G N E R  S P O T L I G H T
Meet Lauren McKay, an interior designer based in Raleigh, NC who has been designing residential and commercial spaces in the Triangle for more than 13 years. Lauren’s approach to design focuses on helping clients design spaces that foster joy, while expressing the personality of their family. As a mother of three young children, Lauren understands how important it is to have a home that is practical and comfortable. With that said, she's a firm believer in the fact that it's ok to take design risks! Scroll below to see how Lauren incorporated our playful Paloma Footstool into her son’s sweet nursery. We're loving all the collected tchotchkes and of course all the beautiful blues!

Our Paloma Footstool features beautiful hand-carved feet by our in-house artisans.

"Pick the wall color LAST!  There are thousands of paint colors to choose from and you want to be sure it will coordinate with the furniture and fabrics used in the space so I always recommend figuring out the other elements first so that you can make an informed decision.  This also ensures the paint color will look PERFECT with everything else you bring in!"

Barrie Benson for her genius use of color, Charlotte Lucas for her wonderful fabrics and wallpapers, Erin Gates for her relatability, timelessness, and well thought out interiors!

I love a statement earring and all of these beauties by Nicola Bathie are perfect for Spring!

2. Rothys in Peacock Blue:
I can be on my feet all day and go from client meeting to site visit without a worry. They are easy to clean and can even be thrown in the wash!

3. The Ember Mug in white:
Because I have 3 kids and it makes sure my coffee is never cold.

I love a table runner with a simple flower arrangement to dress a dining table.
In a bold color of course! Pair it with brass feet, because I think brass is here to stay.

Lauren, thank you so much for incorporating Society Social into your home! It was a pleasure working with you on this custom Paloma Footstool.
