my favorite things: covered bridges

by Laura Casey Interiors on November 7, 2014

Covered bridges were designed out of function, but I think they are so good looking. Whenever I visit upstate New York or New England I love to see them. These are especially pretty with the fall leaves and their unique structure.

Around Here

by Laura Casey Interiors on October 11, 2014

I’m here, I’m working hard these days. The past few months I’ve been too busy to blog but I miss writing and sourcing the photos. My business is growing and I’m immensely thankful for the opportunities.

I’m excited to see that Bunny Williams has designed a line for Ballard Designs.

Keeping my cords and chargers in order seems to be a little difficult for me,

I think this charging station should be on my list.

I could definitely use these casserole dishes,

and I love this pattern for everyday. Plus the pattern is called Campbell, which is my maiden name. So it’s a match!

She’s got many great items, happy shopping!

Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

by Laura Casey Interiors on August 19, 2014

We took a wonderful family trip earlier this summer. Here are a few pictures of Stockholm, Copenhagen and London. The Nordic Museum and the Vasa Museum were two of my favorite places to visit while we were in Stockholm.

The Vasa is a historic ship that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 and was raised in 1961. A museum was built to house the ship, and it is incredible to see in person.

Screen Shot 2014 08 16 at 6.06.41 PM1 Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

I love the traditional architecture in Stockholm’s old town.

It was interesting to see similar architecture in Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is an amazing city with a wonderful combination of traditional European and modern architecture.

It was a bit dreary and chilly while we were in London, but towards the end of the trip we saw the sun.

IMG 52642 1024x768 Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

I love to read about British history, seeing the Tower of London was fascinating & my kids were spooked!

IMG 52692 1024x768 Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

Some of the beautiful town homes remind me of the upper east side in NYC where I used to live.

IMG 5280 768x1024 Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

This one is my favorite and is so charming!

IMG 5286 768x1024 Stockholm, Copenhagen & London

 I loved the Churchill Arms, maybe I’ll be in charge of the flowers in my next go-around.

IMG 5314 624x1024 Stockholm, Copenhagen & LondonWhen my parents are in London they love to go to Thomas Goode, so of course it was on my list.

It’s right near the US Embassy and is the best shop for china I’ve ever been to!

Westminster Abbey is beautiful, but

St. Paul’s Cathedral literally brought me to tears. I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful it is.  This is the website where this photo is from and there is interesting information on the church.

We had a really amazing and special trip. It’s back to school tomorrow!

LCI: Residential Project (Second Floor)

I’m back today with more from the residential project that I wrote about last week. The second floor was also completely renovated, with an entirely new addition at the back of the home.

The master bedroom layout was significantly re-worked. Here is a before shot:

LCI: Residential Project (First Floor)

by Laura Casey Interiors on July 29, 2014

We completed this project last year, and I am very excited to finally show it to you all. This home went through a complete renovation, with the better part of the structure going down to the studs. The builder was able to preserve the front facade and framework of the front rooms, which was very important to the homeowners as the property was originally built in the 1920′s and has been in their family for many years.

The kitchen is part of the new addition at the back of the house.

Our client wanted the space to feel bright and open, with plenty of counter space and storage.

The built-in banquette in the kitchen provides plenty of seating for casual family dining.
