How does renovation interior design work?

At Laura U, we approach every home renovation project holistically. We use a combination of observation, visualization, and curation to create interiors that are an authentic reflection of your tastes and lifestyle. Our Classically Current viewpoint is woven throughout the design so that your home remains timeless.

Step 1. Getting to know you

We believe interior design is deeply personal. We focus on thoroughly understanding your design aesthetic, personal values, and passions. Whether it’s in the Laura U studio or in your home, every project begins with a discovery session.

We explore your design style and introduce you to our signature process, The Process of Design. We discuss what inspires you, determine your design preferences, delve into your current lifestyle and learn how you envision living in your new home. During these conversations, we discuss the project scope, fee schedule, and curate your style profile.

Step 2. Construction presentation and finish selection

With your design direction defined, we select finishes and fixtures for your new interior. We work with your architect and builder to incorporate character building details into the design that honor that home’s original architecture. After your finish selection is complete, our team presents a comprehensive finish schedule. This documents each item for you and your builder and ensures a seamless transition from design to construction.

Step 3. Furnishings design and selection

As the building and construction phase wraps up, we begin working on your home’s interior design concept and refining the details of your style. We focus on furniture, window treatments, soft goods, art, and accessories. Our design team sources furnishings and creates sketches for custom designed pieces. Through a visual and tactile presentation, using samples, fabric swatches, and finishes, you’ll be able to envision your new interior.

Step 4. Procurement and installation

Once you approve your furnishings and accessories, our dedicated in-house purchasing agent places and manages all your orders. They track each piece, confirm it’s been received, and inspected for quality. Our local installation group delivers and carefully places each piece in your home. They ensure everything is picture-perfect ahead of your final reveal.

Step 5. Final home reveal

Pop, fizz, clink! It’s time to celebrate your new interior! We welcome you into your new home with a bottle of bubbly and a few surprises. After our walkthrough, you enjoy your new home and we’ll attend to any items needing attention.
