My Story

I am Lauren Henesy, the woman behind Henesy House. I’m a lover of all things pretty and practical. My biggest obsessions are fashion, flowers and furniture. I consider myself somewhat of a modern hippie. I practice clean living in a non-toxic home. An organic food fanatic who refuses to use the microwave. A modern housewife and mother practicing mindfulness and minimalism.

After high school I attended Harrington College of Design in Chicago, IL. I graduated with honors and a BFA in Interior Design, then set out to decorate the city of Chicago. I began with visual merchandising. Outfitting mannequins was just as fun as shopping for myself! I styled mannequins, interior display walls & vignettes, and street window displays for H&M as well as Paul Stuart, both on Michigan Avenue. I moved on to manage the Home Fashions showroom of a Benjamin Moore retailer. I performed countless paint color consultations, and consulted on custom drapery, hard & soft window shades, wallpaper and custom soft goods. Moving towards my passion I sought out furniture positions and consulted at the showrooms of Design Studio, Restoration Hardware, and BoConcept Chicago. I fell in love with helping people enjoy their living spaces more, and I realized I was helping them love living in their lives!

Within the last few years I have gotten engaged, bought a house, relocated to Milwaukee, got married and had a baby! Once we relocated, I started up my interior styling again, and started sewing custom pillows, window treatments and some clothing! I also began blogging. I blog because I love sharing content about real my lifestyle. From food choices and recipes, household tips & tricks, crafts, beauty, fashion, entertaining and of course, momming… Anything that can help you to love living in your own life. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
