Greetings from Laura

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

"I would give Laura Urban of Urban Design Interiors the highest recommendation. Laura responded quickly to my email as we have worked before in the past and my husband and I loved her work. Laura listened to what I was looking for and guided me with ideas and fabrics that pushed my comfort level a bit, however, in the end we were in love with our new window treatments, window seat cushions and fun coastal decor she picked out for us.

This February we asked for additional window treatments to be made for our dining area. We had two existing panels already from another project with her and loved the fabric; so we only needed four more panels to be made. When Laura came with her installer to install the window treatments, Laura and I could see a difference in the color of the background of the fabric because the fabric was from a different dye lot. Laura offered to have 2 more panels made at her cost to match the other four because she could tell I was not happy with the window treatments.

Laura is great at what she does because she has such good taste in design and great ideas for varying spaces large and small. She always communicated to us when we wanted to know costs or timelines. Lastly, Laura is a professional that always made us feel comfortable with our decisions and followed through on her commitments. She was a pleasure to work with."

"Laura was extremely helpful in the renovation of our home. We bought our house in 2011 and rented it out for five years to various renters. We contacted Laura the summer before we permanently moved to the Cape and showed her pictures of the rooms we wanted to renovate. She worked with us long distance (we were living in Texas) and had to do a lot of the groundwork without us on site.

She had such a great vision for our house and transformed it in ways we would never have thought of. The house is fairly contemporary and she found ways to make it look more coastal and light. She was very much hands-on and made sure all the little details were taken care of. Not only did she see us through the project start to finish, but she also kept in touch afterward to make sure everything was the way we wanted it.

She was also very conscious of our budget and tried, whenever possible, to keep us from going overboard. A year after completing our initial renovation we contacted Laura again to discuss ideas for our kitchen. She hooked us up with a great company to give us what we wanted, and she also had a hand in helping us select materials that would complement the rest of the house. I would definitely recommend using Urban Design Interiors. We would have been totally overwhelmed if we had had to work on the renovations ourselves. Laura had wonderful suggestions and ideas, and we are so happy to have worked with her."

"Working with Laura was a pleasure! She knew my style and exactly what my taste was even before I did. The result is just beautiful!"
