What people have to say...
“Laura listened to the kind of direction and taste we were trying to achieve and she provided us with several options for the living/dining areas so efficiently. Her design is tasteful and inclusive with how everything fits together. In addition to the major furniture purchases, her accessorizing stage is what takes it over the top. Because we had such a fun time redecorating our living/dining rooms, we continued with hiring Laura to re-decorate the rest of the house to complete the feel of the home. She continues to dazzle us and now we marvel as we enter our home that is an enhanced sanctuary. Not only is Laura creative, her joyful, fun and warm personality took us onto such a fun journey. The idea of any redecorating project can be challenging, but with Laura it has been a fun and memorable experience where we made the best with what we had with the space and were able to pull it together and enjoy the outcome. I hope you will be lucky enough to use her service. Having a “Laura experience” to help guide us on what fits best to what feels right was just the wisest decision for our family. She really is one special gem."

"Working with Laura was great! Laura started by presenting several options for maximizing the space of the home we were remodeling. Her creativity was impressive and opened our eyes to new options. When it came to an overall design for the interior of our home, Laura presented us with a design board which brought our ideas to life! I love that she always gave us three options and was very flexible when we wanted to combine them : ) Laura provides a full service experience from design to layout to shopping for the products! We loved that we could rely on Laura for nearly everything design related. We even had her come check out the home at various points to be a second set of eyes for us since we trusted her so much. Plus, we loved her style too."

"The idea of decorating new home was completely over whelming-thank goodness for Laura! Laura's ability to completely re-envision our space was masterful. She patiently guided us though everything from paint color, lighting and window treatment selections, to furniture, layout and decor. Over a year later, every time my husband and I walk into a room that Laura decorated, we smile at how beautiful it is. I could never have imagined our home could look as open, inviting and completely stunning as it does."

“Laura Blankstein is a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism and innate eye for design set her apart from others. She has transformed my blank slate apartment into a beautiful, welcoming home by incorporating modern pieces with my more traditional taste. Laura’s furniture selections and designs maximize the potential of each room. Her ability to bring items of different styles together to create one, unified space is fabulous. Laura’s relaxed and confident disposition puts her clients at ease and makes for an enjoyable decorating experience. She truly has a natural gift for interior design.”

"Laura is wonderful, and helped us tremendously finish the final stages of our home remodel. When it had been a year since we moved back in, and we had nothing on the walls and no window treatments, we knew we needed to call for help! Laura was so patient with our indecisiveness, and had great ideas for us to finish our home. She found beautiful, yet practical, fabrics that worked with our family, and had the window treatments sourced at a quality upholstery house. We are in the final stages with her to round out each room, and know that our finished product will feel like the home we couldn't have had without her expertise!"

“Laura transformed our condo into a home. From our initial meeting, she was incredibly organized and easy to work with. I was amazed how quickly she was able to pinpoint our style. She has an incredible ability to make a room feel pulled-together without feeling overly planned. We worked in stages, a few rooms at a time, which made the process feel very manageable and quite fun! After picking out all of the major pieces, Laura found all of the accessories to bring everything together. She spent a day installing everything to ensure that the look of each room was just right. She even printed out pictures for the frames. That level of attention to detail is what makes her work so special. We came home to a perfectly styled home and could not be happier with the knock-out job Laura has done!.”
