PRINCIPAL DESIGNER & FOUNDER
Lauren Lerner is the Principal Designer and Founder of Living with Lolo, a top-rated design firm located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Lauren’s design approach looks very different than most other firms’ because she focuses on how a space makes a person feel, rather than how it looks. There’s a science behind how specific colors, textures, lighting and other key elements make us feel in a space.
Recognized as one of Arizona’s top 10 interior designers, Lauren works with a select group of clients nationally. Designer to many celebrities, athletes and busy executives, Lauren’s work has been featured in national publications for its unique style.
Lauren resides in Scottsdale with her son, Zachary, and her two pups. In her free time, Lauren loves traveling and exploring new cultures, being in the outdoors, having spa days to unwind and get grounded, and trying new restaurants. Inspiration is everywhere and exploration and continual growth are core to Lauren’s lifestyle.
Lauren has assembled a diverse team of designers and operations professionals to offer truly white-glove interior design services nationwide.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Living with Lolo’s first team member, Robin and Lauren first met when she hired Lauren for a design project in her own home in the early stages of LWL. As Lauren rapidly grew LWL into a thriving, buzzed-about design firm, the need for a business manager to keep things running smoothly became apparent. Leaving a successful career in pharmaceutical sales, Robin took on the challenge and has never looked back. A self-described people-person with an obsession for HGTV, Robin leverages her ultra detail-oriented nature to handle LWL’s business matters ranging from logistics to client care and everything in between. Robin lives in Cave Creek with her husband and two boys.
DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
With a deep passion for the customer journey, Brandie brings possibility and excitement to every project. Her extremely diverse background in a variety of environments, translates into a dynamic, cultured, and creative approach while overseeing all construction operations at LWL. In collaboration with the design team, Brandie provides meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that the highest standard of quality and seamless execution are met, creating a transformative project experience for homeowners. Her commitment is to sweat the small stuff so you don’t have to! Brandie lives in Phoenix with her husband, son, and yellow lab.
Danielle’s passion for design began in childhood as she rearranged her bedroom on a weekly basis. After spending years in her career in HR and Operations, her love for home accents and decorating led her to open her own business with a primary focus on staging homes. Danielle handles all of LWL’s accessory selections, a vital layer of the beautiful, functional spaces we create for our clients. She loves knowing her work contributes to bringing their dream homes to life. Danielle lives in Scottsdale with her husband and three children.
With a whopping seven moves under her belt in under three years’ time post-college, Molly realized how much she enjoyed remodeling, decorating, and organizing her own homes. And so, after many years in the insurance and consumer product sales industries, she decided to make a change and pursue her interests in interior design professionally. She resettled herself in Arizona and joined the LWL team. She now applies her background in sales, marketing, and customer service to providing our clients with a caring, attentive, seamless experience. Molly lives in Cave Creek with her husband + 2 boys.
Ashley discovered her love of interior design while living in her hometown of Albuquerque, NM when she and her husband began renovating and flipping homes. When the pair moved to Scottsdale Ashley left her job in construction and went back to school for interior design, all while interning for Living with Lolo to gain hands-on experience. Upon graduating at the top of her class, Ashley came onboard with LWL full-time. Today, she acts as Lauren’s right hand on and off the job site, gathering fabric and finish samples, creating design drawings, and dreaming up design ideas and solutions for client projects. Ashley lives in Scottsdale with her husband + 2 boys.
Sara started having big dreams of becoming a designer from the young age of 10, when she realized she was fascinated with everything design related! Sara has experience in both residential and commercial design, and loves to be the person behind the scenes paying attention to the smallest of details, recognizing that every selection has an impact on the overall space. Her design aesthetic is constantly evolving, and she is always up for new challenges. She aims to create cohesiveness, balance and harmony through thoughtful color pallets, and believes function along with form is the key to a blissfully curated design. Sara lives in Gilbert with her husband + two (soon to be three) boys, along with their two pups!
Nathalie embarked on her creative journey when she transformed her first home in Arizona, after relocating to the United States from her native Ecuador. Nathalie’s passion lies in curating aesthetically pleasing and functional spaces that mirror individuality. What began as a pastime helping friends with E-designs led her to pursue a new career outside of her background in Advertising and Communication. She embraced her passion, and further enriched her skill set by attending the Parsons Interior Design Program. Nathalie’s design philosophy is all about creating spaces that people are proud of, and want to spend time in because they feel a connection to it. She feels the spaces we reside in are one of the most personal reflections of ourselves. Nathalie lives in Phoenix with her husband and dog Luna.
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER
Debra’s fascination with construction started at an early age, and was influenced by family ties in the building industry.

Alongside her husband, Debra ventured into house flipping, and found her niche in revitalizing neglected houses into stunning, cozy homes that effortlessly blend style and functionality.
