Lauren Li's approach to accessible interior design  makes her trend guides and interiors pieces some of the most popular stories on The Design Files, so if you hang out for her monthly column you'll love this in-depth conversation between Lauren and host, Lucy Feagins!

Before she was the founder of Sisällä Interior Design studio, Lauren worked in big commercial interior design firms locally and overseas, acquiring the skills and knowledge (and some deft software skills!) that formed the foundations to set up her own small business. Here, she talks about her creative career, the secrets to creating a personal interior specific to you, and her predictions for future trends.

Alongside her design and columnist skills, sign-ups for Lauren's new project - an online community and learning hub for designers named The Design Society - are open now!

With a natural flair for styling and a sincere joy for hunting the internet for new finds, Pip would go on to completely redefine the vintage furniture selling space with the power of social media.Now, her platform is a nation-wide dealership with over 120,000 followers (including Ariana Grande!) and a network of sellers all around the country.
