I am Inspired By Laura U: An Amazing Designer on the Houston Scene!


So I was flipping through design inspired images on Houzz.com, as it's my absolute favorite form of procrastination. And in doing so, I came across this House Tour: Morocco Meets Texas in a Family Townhouse which tickled my pickle and floated my boat, etc! It was a recent project completed by interior designer Laura Umansky...for a Texas Townhouse marrying elements of French country and Moroccan design but with a modern twist. HOW FRESH! The use of color, texture, architectural details and furniture just made my heart smile because I understood her intentions and I believe she nailed it. I love white walls and vibrant pops of color. I love that she used color that is prominent in both French Country and Moroccan styles and mixed French inspired finishes with Moroccan details to bring a piece of furniture together. If I had been commissioned to design this home, the likes of this tone and so much of it's essence is something familiar and close to what I would have imagined creating. Anyway I got really excited and went on to explore this designer's work further at Laura U Design Studio which delighted and inspired me to no end, and then some more because she has her own shop called the Laura U Collection, and then some more when I discovered that she has her own MAGAZINE! Say what? How have I not heard about this woman before??? Well in efforts to release positive vibes into the stratosphere that I might someday be as successful as Laura U, I thought I'd put my lovely readers onto a design buffing treat! Its stuff like this that helps me forget about the problems of the world...at least for a bit.

Morocco Meets Texas...let's go!
