Hi! I’m Laura and I’m glad you found my site. I look forward to connecting with you and helping make home your favorite place to be!
Let me take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself.
When we purchased our first home many years ago it was a new build and our contractor asked me to select all of the finishes. I fell in love with the process and have been exploring interior design ever since. A friend and I joined together and created a decorating and staging business that we enjoyed for several years. One day I was doing some research on writing a blog and I found the fabulous Maria Killam. I participated in her Color Confidence training and was certified as a True Color Expert. I wanted to expand my knowledge and skill, so I completed the interior design program at the New York Institute of Art and Design and I am a featured designer with Edesign Tribe.
It is my great joy to help my clients create a home that reflects their personality, solves any problems they may have with the space, and serves as the setting for many years of happy memories. My personal style is casual and comfortable with a hint of glam on occasion. When my husband and I got married, the dominant style of the day was “country living.” Then things evolved into the use of color and florals. When we moved to our next home, I think I painted every room in the house a different color! After that came the Tuscan trend and the gray trend among others. Most of us can’t afford to redo our entire house every time a new style comes on the scene. I believe one of my strengths is that I’ve learned to design spaces that are more timeless than trendy. If your main finishes and furnishings are more classic, then it is easy to incorporate current design elements. I enjoy working with coastal, modern farmhouse, and transitional design styles. I love creating spaces that are inviting, beautiful, and relaxing.
I live in Birmingham, Alabama and am blessed to have been married to my husband, Chris, for 35 years. We have two sons, two daughter-in-laws, and the world’s cutest grandsons. Our labs, Annie and Belle, keep us company and remind us that design has to be functional as well as beautiful! My favorite place to be is on the beach at sunset with a glass of wine.
Every design I create is personal to each of my clients to reflect their lifestyle, preferences, and the atmosphere they want to experience. I would love to work with you to create the space you’ve always dreamed of!
