About Our Featured Designer
While pursuing a Bachelor’s of Arts in Interior Design at Florida State University. Laura studied abroad in London, Paris, and Milan and traveled throughout Italy. Her studies were influential in her subsequent design work, as was the warm, welcoming atmosphere that modern day Europeans so naturally convey in their homes. Laura tries to capture this spirit and ease of living in each of the spaces she creates, whether they are contemporary or traditional.
Upon graduating magna cum laude, Laura worked as an assistant at the Bell-Slater Partnership, an architecture and interior design firm in London, and later pursued a postgraduate specialization in Interior Design at the Interior Design Institute in Milan, working alongside many talented and innovative minds.
After returning to her native South Florida, Laura worked for over a decade in two of the largest high-end residential design firms in the state; Fine Design Interiors and The Decorators Unlimited, designing luxury homes in Miami Beach, Palm Beach; Ontario, Canada; Telluride, Colorado; Hilton Head, South Carolina and many places in between.
By the age of 29, Laura was named one of South Florida’s Top 100 Design Visionaries by Florida International Magazine.
In 2010, Laura and her family moved to San Diego, continuing her career designing homes throughout San Diego. Having children of her own has been especially helpful when working with clients who desire a beautiful home that is also durable, comfortable, and above all, livable. When she is not busy creating, drawing, and searching for the perfect pieces for her clients’ home, Laura spends time with her husband and two children.
Laura takes into consideration of the environment and the well-being of the inhabitants. Can existing materials be reused? Can air quality be improved? Can energy consumption be reduced?
How can we design the space to ensure its longevity? Laura tries to create a space that will endure the test of time, not only in its aesthetic value, but one that will continue to function well as we age. Materials that can perform over a number of years are certainly more environmentally conscious than materials that constantly need to be replaced or updated. Our goal is to create a space you can love and live in for years to come.
