"I love to enter into a space and see the potential of it! I know that working alongside the owner or seller to delve into their lifestyle, dreams and wishes of the space... that's when the magic will happen!"
- Laura (Owner/Designer)
"Laura was a delight to work with. She was very organized and creative with what we had to work with. By staying within our budget and using many of the things in our home, she helped us redesign 6 rooms. It feels like a new home, you will not be disappointed in her work."
Great home staging and design, whether owner-occupied or vacant, begins with a comprehensive understanding of clients' needs and expectations.

After completing the most comprehensive and intensive home staging and design certification course in North America (HSR), Laura strives to design spaces that emotionally connect to home buyers. She is also accredited by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), in which she is a member of the local Minneapolis RESA chapter.
Laura's ability to develop client relationships based on respect, trust and confidence has been the key to her success as a professional home stager and designer. She's skilled at creating beautiful designs under a variety of budgets, home styles, timeframes and requirements. Laura guides her clients through every phase of the home staging and design process. Because she has numerous vendor relationships (painters, furniture stores, landscapers, etc.), she is able to achieve the finest results. She remains committed to cultivating valued relationships with her clients and helping them reach their ultimate goal and vision.
Growing up, Laura has always had a passion for design. She states, "I was that little girl sitting in her bedroom at 8 years old drawing out my future home. And I would imagine having customers and draw out their living spaces too!" But it may come as a surprise that Laura didn't start her career in home staging and design. In fact, she earned an Associate's Degree in Radiology from St. Catherine University. And she worked in orthopedics as a Radiology Technician for 3 years. In addition, she also earned her Bachelor's Degree in Business Management.
Although Laura has been designing homes her entire life, it wasn't until January of 2018 that she decided to quit her day job in Radiology and pursue her dream of owning a business.
"Now work doesn't feel like work. I love helping clients sell their home or revamp their current living space."
In conclusion, in her spare time Laura likes to travel, golf, read inspiring books, try new restaurants, refinish furniture and spend quality time with friends and family.
