“Laura Design Company helped us with our master bathroom renovation. They did a fabulous job, we could not be happier. They put together a layout that worked for our space and helped to keep us within budget. Laura and Laura were able to connect us with companies for all our needs, everything from cabinetry to stone. From their beautiful mood board we were able to find everything we needed and kept us in the right direction. I never in a million years thought our bathroom could be a place that made me smile! We highly recommend and will definitely use in the future.”

“Laura Design Company has been AMAZING to work with. They have created a beautiful home as we tore down our 1950 ranch and are building a new home, coined #ChantillyHouse. I had no idea what I was doing and they reconfigured my architect drawings for a more desirable kitchen, hand sketched built-ins, cabinets, and the kitchen for a perfect flow of the house, and absolutely knocked the ball out of the park with the tiles, paint selections, trim, etc. We're going to have a house that far exceeds our expectations and can't wait to move to return home this Fall! We love the two Lauras and couldn't have been more blessed to work with an fantastic team!”

“We've really enjoyed working with the Laura's from Laura Design Co to help us get set up in our new home. We asked them to help design the layout and draw up mood boards for several spaces then we sourced the purchases ourselves based off their recommendations. This process worked well for our needs. After the initial consultation we've been able to do everything over email. Not only do they have great design sensibilities, but I also really appreciate how well they run their business. They have a clear service model, are amazingly efficient, keep good records, and are generally pleasant people to work with. They're always receptive to feedback, though most of the time their first recommendations are pretty spot on. Would highly recommend them for any project!”

“I contacted Laura after seeing their beautiful work at a friend's house. We had just moved into a new home and I was overwhelmed with how to furnish and decorate the family room. From our initial meeting, both Laura's were so professional and easy to work with. They listened to our needs and were spot on in understanding our style. They communicate well and in a timely manner, and were very transparent during the entire process. They paid attention to all the little details and I was able to trust them and go out of my comfort zone in selecting certain pieces of furniture I wouldn't have on my own. Both Laura's are so talented in what they do, and they really know what they're doing! When I saw our finished family room, I couldn't believe the before and after transformation. It was straight out of an hgtv show. We love the special space they helped create for our family, and we highly recommend them!"

"Laura and Laura were wonderful to work with. They were very knowledgeable and listened well to quickly learn our families' style. They took in all the information and added their magic touch. We love our piano room and know it is something we could have never designed on our own. They were professional yet warm. They were conscientious of the budget and meeting deadlines. It was a fun experience to see everything come together. I would HIGHLY recommend them."

~ Julie S.


"The Laura Design Company will make you feel right at home, both with their warm personalities and inevitable home transformation! Their knowledge of design and current trends coupled with their respect for your budget and personal taste make them a powerhouse team that will make you wonder why you didn't hire them sooner... We are forever indebted to their wisdom, insight and expertise!"

~ Ellen S.


"Laura Design Company worked hard to create a kitchen/break room for our team that is beyond anything we could have dreamed of creating ourselves! They delivered an excellent finished product and worked with multiple vendors to ensure a smooth build out of the space. They were able to find vendors to bring their designs to life in a cost effective manor, as well as work seamlessly with vendors of our choosing. Highest praise to their quality work and excellent designs. Would most definitely work with them again!"

~ Meg K.


"I have hired this company now on two occasions. They continue to exceed my expectations! I highly recommend them on the basis of their follow through, creativity and being under budget both times. That's almost unheard of!"

~ Jon P.


"It was time to update my wall colors and I was stumped. I hired Laura Design Company and they helped me pick out the colors that made sense in my home with out having to buy new furniture etc.  I'm very happy with their knowledge of decor and getting the best value for your money."

~ Leslie M.


"It's been a privilege and joy to work with Laura and Laura through this process. Their creativity, fresh look and ideas help revolutionize the space that some of us stood in wondering, what on earth can we do here. Their attention to details such as drawings, product suggestions, colors, finishes and sources were very well-documented and delightfully presented. Thank you both for your support and the vision you brought to Awana Clubs."

~Scott C.


"Really like working with the two Lauras! Very responsive to my initial request via Houzz, called me the next day and then made a trip to my house 5 days later. Most important to me was being able to work with someone in my budget and have that second pair of eyes (and opinions!) on the selections that was leaning towards... The agreement with Laura Design allows me to use their expertise when I need it to make important decisions on the remodel. They have an eye for the big picture as I make small decisions and making sure everything ties in the end! Can't wait to post pictures of the finished project!"

~Mary K.


"Very easy to work with. The two Laura's brought me for a 1/2 day of picture hanging in a very large Palatine home. They were 'doing' most of the house. There are designers who stand around and dictate. Then there are interior designers who roll up their sleeves and go to work. Both Laura's (Laura Irion and Laura Peacock) are the second type."

~ Reese Turbin, Put My Stupid Thing Together


"TBK Properties was converting a space from monthly rentals to The Day Offices. The Day Offices offers flexible rental by the hour. We needed to redesign and furnish the space for this use. Laura Design Company provided all the design work as well as a shopping list for the furnishings from the furniture, the pictures on the walls to the coat hooks. 
They were delightful to work with, punctual and professional. 
Most guests in the space rave about it! 
I would highly recommend their services."

~ Tom B., The Day Offices
