With the renovation of this 1980’s home, the homeowners wanted a sophisticated style while maintaining much of the original structure of the house. Some areas of the home were fully renovated while others were cosmetically altered. Laura U Interior Design worked with the architect, builder and homeowner throughout the entire process to develop a cohesive design.

The Great Room is a favorite of the home – This room originally served as a grand library and trophy room and was encased in red mahogany walls from floor to ceiling. We worked with a local wood floor company to refinish entire space. The process including stripping the original stain and bleaching to wood to achieve an updated greige stain on the walls and ceiling beams. The black panelled gallery was designed as a dramatic surprise for guests as they approached this grand entertainment space.

The design is tailored, airy and perfectly fitting for a young family that loves to entertain both philanthropically as well as for friends and family.
