The Design-Pro Guide To Spring Style

Photographed by Isa Wipfli.
After stepping away from her own design firm to work at Martha Stewart Living TV for a decade, Suzanne McGrath decided to go back to the drawing board and launch a new version of her business, GBGP Design, in 2009. One year later, her daughter Lauren left Teen Vogue to join her — proving mom really does know best.
From studios and family homes to garden parties and the wild world of the web, there's no space that Lauren, 28, and Suzanne, "50-something," haven't touched. But, of course, the two aren't only about interiors — they're also very much into curating outfits that are as chic as the spaces they design. With bold hues, unconventional stripes, and graphic toppers, the mother-daughter duo created two spring-ready looks with their favorite NYDJ pieces while giving us a BTS tour of their office digs. Get primed for a whole lotta style, ahead.
