What people say about Laurie McParland Design
It has been a pleasure working with Laurie in improving the overall style and feel of our home. She transformed our dark and outdated master bedroom into a light and airy space that is both elegant and comfortable. We were so pleased with her work that we subsequently had her tackle our living room, family room, and foyer. She listens to our needs and is considerate of our style preferences and budget. I especially admire her keen eye for fabulous fabrics and patterns and unique pieces of furniture and lighting. She is meticulous about her work and really has done an amazing job. I hope to work with her again on future projects in our home.
I have worked with a number of designers over the years, but Laurie McParland is the best. And she also works well within a budget, which is something that is not true of other designers I have worked with. Laurie is terrifically talented, and has transformed our home into a place of comfort and beauty. What I especially enjoy about working with her is her ability to listen and then formulate transformative ideas for a room that far exceeded anything I could imagine. Laurie is also just a really wonderful person who I enjoy knowing and working with.

Laurie was highly recommended to me several years ago. She listens well, is very reliable and makes decorating/updating fun.
Laurie is a true professional! She took the time to listen to our concerns and our needs for redesigning our home. Not only was she able to assist us in purchasing the right furniture, window treatments and carpet selections but she had the greatest skill of taking a look at an existing space and redesigning it for today’s family. She turned a dated, dungy, cold basement into a place where we love to watch movies, play board games and just relax on the weekends. Laurie added unique elements like shiplap boards and a beautiful raw edge wooden countertop. She searched high and low for a specific penny tile that added a special touch to our kitchenette backsplash and really made our family room feel cozy. On the main floor of our house, our kitchen had not been touched since the 1970s. Laurie’s redesign of our kitchen island and eating area has left us with a beautiful place to create meals and enjoy hanging out with friends and family. Laurie just has an eye for taking a look at a room and transforming it into an ideal living space.
Laurie always astounded us with her attention to detail and her ability to deal with construction issues. She worked closely and effortlessly with our contractors to make sure our vision became a reality. So many things can go wrong when redesigning a space and Laurie was always there to make sure things stayed on schedule and the design was implemented with quality and care. She took away so much of the anxiety associated with construction and made it as pleasant as it can be when redesigning an entire floor in your home. She always responded to emails and phone calls in a professional and timely manner. We were never left to wonder what was going on and where we stood in the process.
We feel very fortunate to work with Laurie as we transform our home. She listens to your needs, your budget and design style. She respects your time and your feedback and is willing to go the extra mile to make things right. What sets Laurie apart in her profession is her attention to detail, her eye for shaping a room to fit your individual needs and her strong work ethic. She has turned a very daunting task of redesigning a home into a wonderful experience that has left us very happy. Thank you Laurie!
