At Laura U, we design interiors that are both serene and punchy. They’re lovely and warm, but have that little something extra that brings tension to a room. That visual conflict, between contrasting colors or opposing styles, is what elevates a room from great-looking to trend-setting. What better way is there to inject a touch of fun than with bold and unique accent chairs?
Aspen will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where my brother lives, it’s where I used live, and it’s where we used to have a Laura U office. I love Aspen and go every year. There is something about the mountains that really shifts your perspective.
Inspiration comes from many different places. From design blogs to the runway and trips to market, I find inspiration all around me. But hitting the reset button every so often is a necessity for me. I find nothing helps me refocus and gets my creative juices flowing more than putting myself in a different environment. What destination is at the top of my list to renew my interior design inspiration? Aspen, Colorado.
When it comes to stairs, most people think of them as merely a place to get from the first floor to the second. But they are a blank canvas! They’re just waiting for someone to come in and dress them up. I give you: stair runner rugs worthy of every design fan’s obsession.
As an interior designer, I believe every space in a home should be as beautiful as it is functional. And listen, there is nothing like a beautifully designed, thoughtfully structured, high-quality piece from Century Furniture. Yes, I’m talking furniture! Beds, sectionals, footstools and everything in between.
It never fails. From going to market, reading one of my favorite design blogs, or browsing on social media, I’m constantly introduced to amazing products and artists! Besides using newfound faves to create Classically Current interiors, our team loves to share pieces we’ve been obsessing over in our journal. Last November, our Obsessions blog post featured Attalie Dexter Home + Accessories. Shenay, one of our lead designers, stumbled upon this beautiful, authentic wall covering idea! Since then, we’ve set out to learn more about Attalie and her creative design process.
Whether it’s a master suite or a guest room, the bedroom is one of the most important spaces in your home. It’s where you enjoy time with your family on lazy Sunday mornings and where you recall the day with your spouse before bed. And of course, it’s where you sleep! Since you spend one-third of your life sleeping, you want to have a bed that allows you to honor that time.
