Originally a full-service interior design company, HauteInteriors.com was founded by Peg Lessard in 2000. After a much anticipated move from Baltimore, MD to Southern California, Peg put her design career on hold in 2008 while pursuing other interests in writing, social media and grassroots organization. Anticipating the future, she held on to the HauteInteriors.com domain name. Today, HauteInteriors.com is the answer to Peg’s ultimate vision of a virtual website/blog focusing on her passion for writing and all things design.


A Little History

Peg’s design career surfaced when a fancy for designing custom infant bedding and christening gowns blossomed into an enchanting children’s boutique on Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA.  Promoting the Waldorf play concept, “Lavender’s Blue” mimicked a child’s room. The “room” was a lush garden of whimsy filled with made-to-order children’s furniture, linens and fashions; along with the most magical toys and accessories imaginable crafted locally and abroad by cottage industry artisans. Lavender’s Blue was the go-to for the notable celebrity child’s gifts and room design. Peg’s specialty fashions, linens and interiors were featured in LA Style, the LA Times and Victoria Magazine, among others.

With a career rooted in a place where children’s imaginations reign, play is forever etched in my design perspective.”  Code…it has to be original, it has to be inviting…and it has to be fun!  Speaking of fun …my mantra,

“Are you ready to play?” Let’s do this!
