I’ve been working as an interior designer for more than 25 years, and I’ve seen countless styles come and go. If you’re like most people, you don’t want to change your home decor based on the latest whim or fashion. Instead, you want a great design that incorporates items you love – and will continue to love – for years to come.
My job is to guide you in choosing pieces to match your tastes and your daily routine. Whether your style is traditional, transitional, whimsical, contemporary, or something in-between, I’ll help you identify the foundational pieces you need to create a space that reflects your individual sensibilities. Then, we’ll work together to accessorize that space with items that add even more personality and panache. While a great piece of furniture will anchor your surroundings, finishes, accessories, window treatments, and the like are an inexpensive way to put "icing on the cake.”
I’m also a strong supporter of the "shop local" movement and embrace using the many talented artists and craftsmen we are blessed with here on Cape Cod. Urban Design's experienced team is a trusted resource to complete complex renovation projects, on time and on budget.

Urban Design Endorsements
“Laura Urban is the consummate professional: creative and diligent. I have worked with her on three renovations: family room, kitchen, and upstairs bedrooms. Through each project Laura listened carefully to my ideas…and budget! I felt that she understood completely what I was trying to accomplish with each renovation and then was able to offer complimentary ideas.
She has a gift, in particular, for choosing colors. Who knew there could be so many shades of blue! And yet her suggestions were always “right on the money”! I would never think of undertaking any project in my home without Laura’s guidance.”
~ Kathleen Flaherty Centerville, MA
