Question-Why hire an interior designer?

There are many important reasons, but here is my top 3...


What does a Full-Service Interior Design firm do?

Our full-service interior design firm will take your home design project from start to finish. From creating tailored-made, innovative designs, to implementing them, to overseeing construction, then ordering, installing, and finally to styling, we do it all. We are with you every step of the way to ensure no detail is overlooked and all goes according to plan.  Under Lara & her team’s watchful eye, you can relax and enjoy the process.


How does your design process work?

Starting with a comprehensive walk through of your home and/or review of your plans, we gather your ideas and desires for your home. Next, designs are created with in-house drawings, renderings, and design boards. After your approvals, we facilitate costs, create a schedule, and begin ordering. Upon work commencing, we manage contractors, oversee progress, inspect and place deliveries. Finally, styling will finish your home and now it’s time to host your housewarming party!


What do you shop for?

Anything for the interior of your home! Lara shops for, or has custom made in one of her artisan workrooms, any of the following: flooring, countertops, tile, hardware, paint, wallpaper, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, bathroom fixtures, kitchen fixtures & appliances, furniture, outdoor furniture, fabrics, rugs, window treatments, pillows, bedding, artwork, mirrors, & accessories.  Lara has established relationships with many trade-only manufacturers, giving her access to the most exceptional and unique items not available to the public.

Do you design & install cabinetry, built-ins, and millwork?

Yes! Our kitchens and most bathroom designs include Lara’s custom cabinetry. Built-ins such as bookcases, TV units, mudroom benches & cubbies, fireplace mantels, wall paneling, detailed moldings…you name it, we can do it beautifully and typically faster than any cabinetry company.

Will Lara be on my project?

Absolutely! Lara purposefully limits the number of projects she takes on at a time so she can personally create and oversee each one. Forging long lasting relationships with clients is something she is proud of and why past client’s consistently call her back.


Do you work out of state?

Yes! Lara loves to travel and meet clients wherever they reside.  The same expert design processes apply for out-of-state projects to ensure a smooth and seamless experience.  Although most of our clients reside in Westchester, NY and Greenwich CT, Lara has completed projects in many other locations. 

Will you work with my contractors, or do I have to use yours?

Whatever works best for you!  If you have a contractor you love, we are happy to work with them.  If you need awesome recommendations or want to compare estimates, Lara will gladly refer her amazing team!


What’s the best time to bring you onto the project?

As soon as possible!  Lara can come in at any point, but we’ll be the most helpful during the architectural phase for new construction or large additions/renovations.  Knowing where the furniture, lighting, etc. will be going BEFORE construction starts can often prevent costly re-dos.

Do you have a project minimum?

Our project budget minimum is $150K (construction and décor costs). Each year we take a couple of projects that fall under this depending on location and other variables.
