Early on, Lauren Smith knew she wanted to own and operate her own business. Her passion for design led her to pursue interior design as a career and in 2013, after graduating from the University of Idaho with a degree in Interior Design, Lauren started 509 Design & Décor. Having been raised in this area, Lauren incorporated her roots in the community by coupling the area code with her passions, establishing the name 509 Design & Décor.
Being a cottage business, Lauren runs her business out of her home but ultimately her “work space” is in her client’s homes. Lauren has done residential remodels, new construction, professional offices, and commercial spaces. In 2014, she decorated a house in the Tri-Cities Parade of Homes and has assisted on 3 other parade homes. In 2014, Lauren added the component of weddings and events design/coordinating to her business. She enjoys all aspects of a wedding and is able to help the soon-to-be bride and groom in any and every way possible – from invitation design, decorations, planning, day of/on site coordinating with vendors. This helps to ensure that the bride and groom are relieved from the stress of the wedding day and are rather able to enjoy the special moments throughout the day while leaving the “to-do’s” for Lauren to manage and execute. In 2015 Lauren extended her business services to include rentals. She now offers a variety of decorations, linens, lighting, tables, chairs, and more.
Lauren’s business philosophy is “Every design, event, and wedding starts with a conversation and a vision”.
