Portfolio of Rooms

With color as the cornerstone, Laura considers those things that are established such as the flooring, cabinetry, tile, fixtures and granite. Then she looks at the more fluid elements, such as the rugs, fabrics, art, and existing furniture.

She aims to help people get what they want – what they conceive. Tailoring their color and style sense, rather than imposing a rubber stamp solution.
