After having studied Interior Design and Decoration at Design Centre Enmore, Lauren Brown has spent the last two years honing her personal style and designer eye in her current role as Commercial Projects Co-ordinator for Hub furniture’s Sydney showroom.  Lauren now also shares her design appreciation with est readers as a regular contributor….



I live in…Newtown, Sydney.

What I love most about living in Newtown is…It’s low-key, unpretentious attitude and diverse food options.

My favourite breakfast spot in Newtown is…Brewtown.

For dinner with a friend in Newtown I would take them too…Bloodwood.

My favourite furniture designer is…A tie between Patricia Urquiola & Michael Anastassiades. Both their aesthetic & products are at the opposite ends of the spectrum to which I am probably  most drawn to. I appreciate and have respect for both immensely.

I love the colour…Peach.

To unwind and restore my batteries I go to…Kutti Beach, Vaucluse, Sydney.

I am saving for a…Trip to Japan for Hanami (Cherry Blossom Season).

I would describe my style as…Refined & elegant.

I’ve always wanted to try….Living and working in Paris.

In my next life I am coming back as a….Carlo Scarpa (or Kate Moss).
