SKIN Interior Design: Fast Facts


This is hardly the life people expected to live, but as they stayed home and stared at their familiar walls, they began to realize the beauty and potential of where they live. They wanted to make their home better, more inviting and more luxurious, with their passion conveyed in every color, and their unique taste exemplified in every room. This was more than a dream project or something to do someday – with homebound living a way of life for work and for play, and with all but the most vital travel plans eliminated, people wanted more out of the places in which they live.

But while the desire for a better home is real, the time necessary to achieve it does not actually exist for many individuals. That’s where SKIN Interior Design comes in. Founded by Lauren Lozano Ziol and Michelle Jolas, two brilliant talents who merged their interior design and advertising/boutique design companies in 2016 with the idea of bringing art and design to clients.

SKIN Interior Design, a luxury hospitality and residential interior design company led by women, aims to deliver the level of elegance and chic that homeowners expect. Currently headquartered in Chicago, we have immediate plans to launch offices in London and Miami, home to some of the wealthiest individuals in the world.

You Spend So Much Time At Home
There’s No Reason Why It Shouldn’t Be Perfect

As noted, homebound living is a way of life for many. But even if the pandemic were to end tomorrow, wouldn’t you want to live in a place that feels like you?

Hoping to craft the perfect home, many brought in professional interior designers to assist with these improvements. Schumacher and Statista data show that more than half (60%) of interior design companies rated their economic situation as “rather positive” or “very positive” in November 2020. This is a sign of the strength of the market, and the incredible need for interior design that fulfills the hopes, dreams and fantasies for a more perfect home.

People Are Paying For Perfection

There are approximately 22.8 million high net worth individuals worldwide. Of those 22.8 million, there are 2.4 million individuals with a total wealth of between $5 million to $30 million who are considered very high net worth (VHNW) individuals, and 265,490 individuals with a total wealth of more than $30 million, described as ultra high net worth (UHNW) individuals.

Collectively, high net worth individuals control more than $94 trillion in wealth. We want to seize on this market and stand apart from the existing crowd of interior designers in Miami and London, just as we have in Chicago since forming in 2016. Our innovative interior design, custom furniture, fabrics and wallpaper line were made to impress, and our eco-friendly, incredibly chic faux "SKIN" dog beds are the perfect addition to the home of every pet.

Impeccable Praise
From Those With Impeccable Taste

“I always joke that as a true Libra born in October, I am always struggling to balance my internal scales despite the craziness around me. Creating that feeling in my home was imperative with cool, calming features and tiny pops of color to help nurture my creative side especially in the kitchen where all of the magic happens for my family, my business, and beyond. Thank goodness I had SKIN to create that magical feeling every single time I walk into my home despite the craziness on the outside - here, I'm always relaxed and comfortable as is everyone who visits.”


Anupy Singla, Cookbook Author and TV Journalist


We reached out to the team at Skin to help us expand our vision and make the rooms in our blank slate of a home more comfortable, more functional and more reflective of our tastes.  Now, every room Michelle and Lauren have touched, I can walk into and feel both calm while simultaneously totally giddy with pride, for we know that no other dining room,  bedroom, butler’s pantry, music studio, listening room or mudroom on the planet looks anything like this room. Whether testing a recipe, jamming with my son or slipping into bed after a long day, I am always so damn comfortable and inspired, and that's all I ever wanted. Also, when we give people a tour of our home, we get to relive this pride all over again when you see the wonder in their reactions to our fixtures or wallpaper or sexy black trim.  We’ve always loved our home, but now we, like, LOVE LOVE our home.”
