The Bachelor's Ben and Lauren Get Real About Moving In Together and Give Us a Peek Inside Their Cozy Lovenest
By the time Ben Higgins gave Lauren Bushnell the final rose on The Bachelor, he had been living in a Denver, CO, apartment for about six months. While the cozy apartment had great bones, interior design wasn't a priority for Ben; in fact, beyond his couch, futon from college, and deer antlers above the fireplace, he says he hadn't done much to decorate the place, so he was more than happy to let his now-fiancé Lauren infuse the space with style.
"When it came to this project, I did try to stay out of it. She's moving into this house, and I wanted her to feel like this is home. If I was to choose everything, it wouldn't feel like that," he says.
Lauren set out bringing light and airy colors to the space. She says, "I feel like I kind of brought a piece of California with me to Ben's home in Denver. But I didn't want to make it feel too feminine — I'm moving into his house, so I tried to keep him in mind as well." To give the design project a professional polish, the couple teamed up with online home retailer Joss & Main, working with the company's main style director, Donna Garlough.
