Inside This Interior Designer's Colorful and Eclectic Home
The Everygirl takes us inside interior designer Lauren McCaul's Alabama home, which is full of character.
Lauren McCaul has a passion for design, and the interior of her home certainly shows it. Her day job as an interior designer for the United States Army Corps of Engineers doesn't exactly allow her to experiment with bright colors and vintage finds, and this is where her home comes in. Lauren lives in a beautiful historic home in Huntsville, AL, called the Public Inn. Built in 1818, the structure has tons of character, boasts original hardwood floors, and comes with plenty of history — but we'll let Lauren tell you more about her home below.
Craigslist and flea market finds, along with items Lauren has picked up on her travels, make up much of the decor. And from the moment you enter, you are greeted with the undeniable warmth and charm of a beautifully curated, well-loved home. Lauren has been able to mix together her love of antiques and color in a way that feels eclectic and inviting, and we fell for the space the moment we saw it.
Today Lauren is sharing her advice with women looking to work in design, as well as the story of how she found and decorated her home. We hope you enjoy a glimpse into this beautiful space as much as we have!
