Laura Katherine Wood
Laura Katherine Wood’s love of interiors and design began in early childhood. Her family traveled to beautiful hotels and everywhere they went, her mother would give antique lessons. She instilled in Laura Katherine a love for color, patterns and beautiful rooms. During a trip to the Greenbriar at age eight, Laura Katherine knew that becoming an interior designer was her dream!
After studying at the University of Alabama, Laura Katherine had an opportunity to go into ministry which took her to Texas, and interestingly, into a career in IT. While this was fun and fulfilling, it wasn’t her true aspiration. So after achieving the goals she had made for herself, it was time to make the leap and go back to school. Laura Katherine enrolled in New York School of Interior Design and never looked back!
Drawing on her past career of project management and client relationships, Laura Katherine uses these skills in her design work every day. She is able to take her clients’ ideas and transform them into beautiful and livable spaces that reflect their owner’s personality. Her philosophy is that a home should say “Welcome! Come in and stay a while!”
Laura Katherine Interiors is a full-scale design firm which offers residential and commercial interior design services ranging from new construction to full renovations to simple design updates.
