Laura is an amazing interior designer! She gave us our dream concept of what we wanted in our home. We have gotten so many compliments from friends and family on how our home looks like a page from a magazine!
From start to finish, Laura was very professional and thorough in providing us advice and recommendations as well as picking pieces which met our expectations and beyond. We definitely would recommend her!

We met Laura and immediately felt comfortable and confident in her style, professionalism, and work ethic. We were very impressed with Laura’s thoroughness, communication, and commitment to creating a satisfied customer. We did a smaller window project and some general consultation with her, but best of all, we now know who to call for any interior design projects. We highly recommend her.

I interviewed several interior designers before I found Laura and LK Designs - and I am so glad I did. She was lovely to work with. Professional, prompt, thorough and she has great style. My home feels transformed and she really listened and executed on what I was hoping to accomplish with the space. Plus, she picked out the best sofa I've ever owned - she asked thorough questions about how we use our sofa and voila! - we have the perfect one. I will hire Laura again next time I have design requirements.

Laura Koshel of LK Design is simply phenomenal! Basically we asked her to start from scratch in our new home’s open great room/dining room area, and from our very first meeting, we knew we were in great hands! Laura combines her gift for color and design with outstanding organizational skills, and the results are amazing!
She was thorough and precise, quickly taking measurements to ensure all pieces were properly sized for the space, and then she helped us build the room piece by piece, always keeping our budget in mind. She researched and investigated, and then in every case, she gave us great choices as well as her input and guidance. Occasionally the choices would include one option that, in the past, would have been outside my comfort zone, and I’m so grateful that Laura helped me broaden my horizons!
We could not be more pleased with the outcome. Now we have asked Laura to help us with our master bedroom and study, and we can’t wait to see the magic she will work in these spaces. Without reservation, we highly recommend LK Design and Laura Koshel!

Simply put, Laura is an amazing designer.
Laura listens and understands what customer wants, which makes working with her very enjoyable. In my case, I had very specific design ideas I wanted to implement. She did a wonderful job of accurately understanding my taste and need,and finding the perfect items I was looking for.
She is always punctual and responsible, often times going beyond agreed terms to make sure the job is done perfectly and to the customer’s satisfaction. Interior design can be a stressful project, but thanks to Laura, my experience was filled with a lot of fun and excitement.
There is no question: Laura is THE interior designer to go for.

Laura did an extraordinary job, window treatments and bedding. All the work was tailored to my windows and bed. From the beginning and throughout the project she was very open to my style (it is traditional) and extremely professional.

I found her to be personable and extremely efficient. She completed the work within the requested time frame. I have had many, many compliments on the drapes and my family says that they seem just perfect for me. I highly recommend her.

I am so impressed with the work you have done. You have transformed our dining room from a plain old boring room into one that we love to entertain friends and family in now (and show off!!).I can’t wait for the next project to begin. You take time and listen to our likes and dislikes and incorporate them into a beautiful design. You are courteous, friendly and fun to work with! Thank you!

Laura designed draperies and selected paint color for our master bedroom which had defied our decorating efforts for nearly a decade. She handled our indecision, unfamiliarity with terminology, and extraordinarily vague guidance admirably. She came up with a winning design on the second attempt. Laura's integrity is unbeatable. Her dedication to the task is second to none, and the end result was fantastic.

Laura Koshel is an delightful to work with as she is talented in her profession. For the past year, Laura has helped us to create a home that reflects comfort, style, and charm. Laura’s greatest skill is her ability to listen and learn about what is important to the client, and then take that vision and make is reality. She thoroughly researches furniture options, and presents numerous choices for consideration. Her color and design skills are second to none. Particularly important to us, was her ability to work around a number of pieces that we did not want to part with, and to integrate them into whole “look” of the room.

Laura also has a network of highly skilled professionals in the field of painting, textiles and installation. When work needs to be completed on a timeline, Laura is able to make sure her clients are properly scheduled, and their needs advanced and understood. Laura is always ready to put her client’s needs first. When we moved across the country to our current home, we had a narrow window to get work done before furniture and boxes arrived. Laura sprung into action, and we were able with her guidance, to select beautiful paint colors for numerous, and complete all the work before the movers arrived.

Another key element in Laura’s skill set is her ability to place the design elements based on the client’s timeline. She is always supportive of her client’s, and will never rush a decision. She is flexible, has made our decorating experience a true joy. I credit Laura with helping to make our home the lovely and comfortable place it is today. I know she has captured the look and mood that reflects our family’s lifestyle. Importantly, that ultimately is her goal – to do what is best for each and every individual client. I wholeheartedly recommend Laura Koshel for her superb decorating skills, her winning demeanor, and her consummate professionalism.
