TESTIMONIALS

"Laura is amazing! Despite the fact that my husband and I have two decidedly different and strong points of view, she has guided the two of us through the design and material selection with ease. We’ve been in our house for 18 years with little improvement over the years because we just couldn’t agree on colors, materials, or anything. I honestly didn’t think there was a way to make us both happy but she found a way! She’s very comfortable to work with and she has been conscientious of our budget, our preferences and styles.

Willing just to dip our toes into the water, we contracted her originally just to put together some ideas. She put together three separate ideas for our space to make me happy, make my husband happy and an idea about blending both to make us both satisfied. It was a great effort because it gave us a chance to discuss ideas and details so that, as a couple, we could get past our differences in opinion. She also came up with an outstanding kitchen design!

I’m most impressed with how she works with the contractors and other vendors. My contractor’s project manager expressed how happy he was to hear that Laura was involved in the process because he can count on a detailed, well-thought out plan with drawings that he wants to use because they are so helpful to him. Many other designers don’t make this this type of effort. When I interviewed designers for this job, I didn’t know what gem Laura was until this point. I had chosen her because of her qualifications, her bubbly personality and the feeling that she understood what we wanted. I want everyone to know that she’s the full package!"

"Laura helped us create a warm and wonderful new environment for the entire first floor of our home. We live in an old two story house that was fast becoming too tight and small for us, as our 3 children became teenagers.

Laura listened to all our needs. Asked all the right questions and patiently worked with us. Her attention to the smallest detail is phenomenal, her ability to adapt to the challenges that presented itself as walls and ceilings were moved and removed, was critical to the success of the entire project. She worked with the construction team in such a skillful manner that they willingly listened to her and we ended up with the result we wanted. She was always available for questions and guidance and best of all – she did it all with a wonderful smile on her face. There is so much more I can say about Laura but primarily my husband and I feel the success of our project largely depended on Laura’s patience, imagination, flexibility and confidence in her ability to turn her vision into reality for us keeping in mind our tight timeline and budget.

We have now lived with the end result for about a year and we still marvel at the changes our new space has created in our family’s life.

Thanks Laura – you have a client for life!"

"We wanted to take a moment to thank you, Laura, for all your help and hard work in making our home a much better place in which to live. You have done an excellent job of understanding our requirements, our lifestyle, and our preferences in formulating your recommendations. Your creative solutions have meshed extremely well with our needs.

All of your work products have been truly professional: the concept boards, the room layouts, the construction plans, the electrical plan, etc. You have also provided us with significant help by identifying places to shop, products to buy, and contractors with whom to work.

We could not have done this without you. In addition to all of the professional design work, we value the time we spend with you personally. You’ve always been upbeat and fun to work with even during the challenges. As an outgrowth of our project you have truly become our friend."

"Laura is a consummate professional!

As an older couple that used designers extensively in the past, we got to know the good ones from the bad. Some want to take over and do the work their way. Others are less demanding and acquiesce to your ideas. We wanted to avoid both.

Laura was a dream to work with, because she listened to our ideas, embellished them with her own and demonstrated, through her sketchings, what the best solutions might be. She has exceptional ideas, good judgement and is skilled at guiding you through the process - always keeping the budget in mind. Also, she is just nice to have around the house, because she always has a ready smile and is fun to work with.

When we do this again, Laura is our girl!"

“I have had the opportunity to work with Laura a number of times over the last few years. Anyone who is familiar with the business of remodeling would understand that this is a testimonial in itself, designers and contractors often don’t mesh!

Laura’s practical approach to form and function is in evidence on every project regardless of size or scope. Her ability to merge design, the clients’ vision, within the confines of a budget and four walls are among her best assets.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, for any project."

"Thanks to you Laura, my house makes me smile!

When I open the door to my home, I am overwhelmed with a sense of happiness, serenity and peace.

A lot of people dive into projects without thinking about all the decisions that need to be made, and are then in a rush to make those decisions that are virtually irreversible. You have consistently helped me get it right the first time. I appreciate the tremendous amount of thought, focus, and research that you put into your detailed drawings, sketches, and material selections... you consistently bring me fresh, new ideas that give me the courage to makes dramatic changes to my environment.

You have truly given me the home of my dreams!"

"Thanks to Laura Wireman and Innerspace Design, my remodel project turned out better than I ever expected!

Right from the start, Laura was able to capture my ideas with her amazing conceptual drawings. She combines uncanny natural artistic ability with deliberate, sound design techniques.

Laura was always professional, yet very personable… easy to work with and very reliable. Her organization and attention to detail is very impressive and her tenacity and persistence were fierce when it came to finding all the right materials and products for my project."

"Laura's help in the design of our whole house remodel was invaluable. She has exceptional taste and talent. Her concept sketches were so helpful in giving us an idea of what the final project would look like.  She is quite skilled as a designer and also very open to incorporating all of our desires into the final project. Laura is upbeat and I had a lot of fun working with her."
