Laura U picks pumpkins at Buchanans

Let’s Go to the Pumpkin Patch!

It’s Fall Ya’ll!
When I think about the fall season, some of the things that come to mind are the leaves changing colors, cozying up by the fire with a glass of wine, and lots of pumpkins! Though the leaves don’t really change around here, there are certainly times when it gets cold enough for a fire and we certainly have a lot of pumpkins…which are perfect for making your home feel more like fall.

September Obsessions

Can you believe that we are in October?! The team is really excited about the arrival of fall and it finally starting to feel cooler during the day. We’re all definitely looking forward to the cozy weather and being able to wear our favorite fall fashions.

This month the team began work on some new client projects and I had the opportunity to head out to California for a few days for a site visit – so exciting! One of my favorite things about starting a new project is getting to uncover our client’s story and finding unique ways to bring their story to life through their home’s design.

Laura U New Website

Check out our new website!

From a young age, I knew I wanted to be an interior designer. Growing up, I spent my time organizing and rearranging the objects in our home. And though I didn’t know it at the time, this exercise taught me how to be intentional and purposeful in my designs.

Laura U interior design is 10 years young!

Yes, you read that right! This week marks our ten-year anniversary and I couldn’t be happier! I know I have said it before, but I can’t reiterate enough how fortunate I am to work with such a talented team; there is just no way that Laura U Interior Design would be celebrating ten successful years without them. Over the last ten years, we have had the privilege of working on amazing projects spanning the entire country (and beyond), we have collaborated with fabulous clients to create beautiful homes, and – with our wonderful vendors – we have pushed the envelope with our designs. Above all, we have grown as a team and as designers.

In the spirit of celebrating a decade of designs, I took a trip through the archives to re-discover some of my favorite designs throughout the years.

High Point Market Sneak Peek: Worlds Away!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is finally here! I‘m heading off to High Point today to begin all of the Market festivities and I am beyond excited to begin touring all of the showrooms tomorrow! It has been such a crazy couple weeks preparing for it, but the fast (and sometimes frantic) pace is part of what I love about interior design.

As promised, I have one more sneak peek to show you before I hit the road for North Carolina. Known for its fabulous transitional and contemporary pieces, Worlds Away has been a go-to of mine for years and, as usual, they are prepared to make a big impression at Market this weekend.

Without further ado, enjoy my final High Point Market sneak peek courtesy of the fab team at Worlds Away!

High Point Market Exclusive Sneak Peek: Julian Chichester!

I am heading to the fall High Point Market THIS weekend, and I am beyond excited to see what my favorite vendors and designers have in store for the new season! As a member of the Style Spotter team, I’m charged with choosing my favorite pieces and designs at the Market (be sure to follow along to see what I discover). As usual, my anticipation got the best of me, and I decided to get a bit of a head start on checking out the fab creations of some of the brilliant designers preparing to roll out new collections at the event.

As we enter into the final countdown to High Point Market, I have partnered with three fab vendors to give you sneak peeks of their new creations all week long!

First up, are the stunning pieces by one of my of my long-time favorites and partner for one of my Market Trend Tours, Julian Chichester. The designs and collections always impress, and the team was nice enough to give me a peek at what they plan to reveal at Market.

Inspired by English and European design, it’s as if the pieces in this collection were made for my Classically Current style. Julian Chichester is known for its quality craftsmanship and original design, but the detail and unusual finishes are what set the designs apart from the crowd. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind piece, all items can be custom-made to build a completely bespoke model. From the size to the finish, you can make your piece uniquely you.

Take a look to see what Julian Chichester has in store for this season’s High Point Market and a preview of what we’ll discover during my Trend Tour!
