Portfolio of Rooms

Laura's involvement in projects has run the gamut, from choosing colors, to an all-inclusive soup to nuts approach of designing a floor plan, picking floors, tiles, granite, cabinets, door and trim styles, decorative hardware, furnishings, window treatments, rugs, pillows, and accessories.

With color as the cornerstone, Laura considers those things that will not be changed 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.

Portfolio of Houses

As a color consultant, Laura uses her ability to combine the elements of a job: existing colors, preferences of the client, and the big picture. Her experience with exteriors includes choosing colors, selecting the materials for roofing, trims, siding, and hardscape surfaces such as cobble stones.

Laura prides herself on the ability to help her clients combine what they imagine the finished home exterior or room to look like with her expertise, resulting in a one-of-a-kind color palette.

Whether recommending paint colors, or working on an entire redesign with wallcoverings, window treatments, upholstery and more, Laura helps her clients achieve a home that perfectly reflects their style.

Hi Laura,
The paint job continues and your color recommendations are fantastic. We are very pleased with the results. Still need to paint the living room, hallway and a few others. I am resisting the urge to tamper with any color choice! Sometimes I run out for a sample and then the chosen color was 100% correct in the first place. Many thanks for your assistance and amazing color sense.

Linda E. – Auburndale
