The Laura U Design Collective is a "wholistic" high-end design studio specializing in interior and residential building design. Everything we do, we do for the love of home.

Update on the Studio

Our team is slowly and in the safest possible way, resuming regular business hours at the studio. Beginning June 1, team members will be working on-location on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am-5pm. We are thrilled to see our design community friends in-person once again. And we always welcome the opportunity to learn more about new projects.
