I'm one of those people who know what they like when they see it. I love scrolling beautiful spaces on insta or flicking through magazines. But I found it impossible to get started, or nail down a design. Laura came in to rescue me from myself. She listened, understood what we needed for our home and came with a way of pulling all my disorganised ideas together. She has let me be creative, but also been the voice of reason and wisdom - knowing what works and what doesn't in a space. If you are thinking about a renovation, Laura is an essential asset. She is so reasonably priced, and has saved me from countless hours of visiting showrooms, agonising about choices and turned a daunting project into a fun one. She's done all of the drawings for us, worked with me to make my choices of floor, tile, paint, tap, basin etc. I look forward to spending time with her - and am always relieved when she comes to my rescue. I would go beyond recommending Laura, and insist that you reach out to her - you'll thank yourself every day!

I worked with Laura from Studio 1 when I decided to renovate my small terrace. Laura worked on my ideas, suggested lots of things I would never have thought of and chose paint colours, tiles, furnishings - all that have made a huge difference. In particular, when I wanted a particular shade of green for my living room and thought I had decided, she came back to my house with a different suggestion and her words of I've been thinking what we chose was not quite right, this is better. And it is! It's that kind of care and detail that makes working with Laura a pleasure. She chose beautiful things, that were exactly aligned to my style, but has also challenged me to think differently about some aspects. And it has really paid off. I love my house and renovations and wouldn't change a thing. We're now working on the styling and I'm enjoying every minute. Laura is professional and very easy-going, it's a real pleasure to bounce ideas and work with her. Highly recommend her.
