Bunny Williams and Ballard Designs

by Laura Casey Interiors on August 28, 2014

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.

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.

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

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

This one is my favorite and is so charming!

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

When 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.

 Walking by this was pretty neat…

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

by Laura Casey Interiors on August 5, 2014

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.

Study Before:

The floor plan was re-worked and many new rooms were added.

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.

I hope you like it! I’ll be back next week to show you the second floor.

LCI & a TV spot

by Laura Casey Interiors on July 21, 2014

A big thanks to the team at the new show TINY HOUSE NATION on the FYI network for featuring my murphy bed project which aired last week as a solution for living in a tiny house.

Click here to see the show.

A few years ago I had a murphy bed built into a clients home. A sofa and small seating area that transitions into

an extra guest room.

If you want to see the process of the design and building of the murphy bed click here to read the original blog post.

Tiny House Nation shares the process of families moving from their houses into a tiny house, and they are small!

Do you think you could live in a tiny house?

LCI: Before & After

by Laura Casey Interiors on June 6, 2014

I’m back! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. We had a very busy spring that is turning into an even busier summer. I’ll give you a peek at some things I’m working on next week.

Last fall we started on a great before and after project. She’s been a great client for many years, so I am really happy I could transform her rooms. She has FIVE (yes supermom status) kids and she is really happy their living spaces have increased and improved!

We decided to update and lighten the feel of their family room, play room, and kitchen.

Kitchen, Before:

 and the Kitchen after with new counters, backsplash, lighting, hardware and refinished and painted cabinets.

Her kids are between ages 10-18 and she said it has really made a difference in their lives. This is why I love what I do!

I hope you like it too. Happy weekend!

LCI: Charlotte Observer Home & Garden

by Laura Casey Interiors on March 29, 2014

A big thanks to Jodi Helmer and The Charlotte Observer for interviewing me for an article on painted furniture and showing my work in the Home & Garden Section today.

These chairs were unfinished when we bought them and then had them painted Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.

I thought navy was a great color to incorporate into the kitchen.

You can see more of my work with painted furniture in their online article click here.
