Laurel has an insatiable appetite for well-curated interiors. Her aesthetic marries approachable elegance alongside a perfect chemistry of high/low elements. Laurel designs to suit the clients needs and lifestyle pulling from contemporary influences as well as traditional trends. As a Jane of All Trades, her style is not limited to one specific niche but rather transitional and suited to the size and scope of the project.

With an eye for exquisite interior architectural detailing in homes as well as commercial projects...Laurel is laser focused on ensuring that her clients' lifestyle is represented through her work. Not one to shy away from color, Laurel often gravitates towards a steady mix of vibrant details while making each space livable with modern conveniences.

From custom furniture and fabric selections to space planning and design for her corporate clients, Laurel treats all projects as a collaboration with her clients as well as architects and contractors.

As a 30 year veteran of the design industry, Laurel is excited to take on new interior challenges. Laurel has completed projects in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson, NYC, Lake Tahoe, Coronado, Solano Beach, Dana Point, Rancho Sante Fe, Vail, Aspen to name a few and continues to expand her portfolio in and outside of Arizona, her home base.

ln her personal life, Laurel loves traveling with her husband, Rick.  As a budding photographer, she is always on the hunt for antique buildings, storefronts and furniture boutiques. She never stops shopping for her clients,'s all about the unique find!

While visiting her sons in two of the best design cities, Chicago and New York, she frequents the newest, hip hotels and restaurants. Laurel is a city aficionado constantly craving new scenery while absorbing different trends and cultures.

At home, nature inspires Laurel. She is fascinated with all its splendor be it color, textures, shapes or movement. She loves beginning her day gazing out at her beautiful yard whilst taking in her flower gardens with the Phoenix mountains serving as a gorgeous backdrop.
