Who We Are.
Paul Lauren Design Consultants is a firm known for serene, uncluttered spaces that are sumptuously livable. The idea that your home is a haven—a place where you should feel peaceful and happy—is at the heart of principal designer Lauren Rautbord’s trademark style of luxurious fabrics, neutral palettes, and furnishings full of warmth and personality.
Always sophisticated but never fussy, Lauren’s designs incorporate vintage and contemporary pieces alike. She believes less is always more, and that exterior views—from desert landscapes to urban lakefronts—should be embraced and enjoyed.
Over the past two decades, Lauren Rautbord’s easy, elegant spaces have won her a loyal clientele throughout the Upper Midwest and the Phoenix area. People appreciate her open, friendly personal style and her ability to help them discover what they really want and like. Her distinctive interiors are all the more livable thanks to her firsthand knowledge about how people and families live at different life stages.
