“Laurel Bern has been working with us on various design projects for the past 10 years. We appreciate her fresh, creative perspective, her patience, her ability to listen and the unique items she’s been able to find to enhance our home. Whether it’s just freshening up a family room or completely redesigning a living space to serve a new purpose, Laurel is innovative, professional, and stays on budget. We continue to use her services and recommend her to our friends.”

– Steven and Eileen, Larchmont, NY


“Laurel Bern is the cat’s meow. She is a fantastic person to work with. Laurel is open-minded about listening to all of your ideas. She does a great deal of research to make sure the decor fits your home and lifestyle. She has done and continues to do a wonderful job at my house. She is simply the best.”

– Susan, Bronxville, NY


“We were thrilled to have Laurel recommended to us by a close friend. We were aimless and struggling to pull together our living room. The space was a bit awkward but with Laurel’s direction we were able to design and decorate a comfortable living area which optimized the space. She helped us with furniture selection, carpets and window treatments – it all came together in a beautiful way. She was naturally the person we called when we renovated our kitchen where she helped us again with window treatments but also with some unique lighting figures and seating as well. In a three-peat performance, she helped us re-design our home office where she arranged for built in desks and office furniture as well as window treatments and carpets.

Laurel is always easy to work with and accommodating. Particularly for us, where design and decoration were completely overwhelming, she made it a pleasant and easy process with a result that was sophisticated yet comfortable and livable for our family.”

– Patty and Lee, Katonah, NY



“Laurel decorated every single room in my home and I can honestly say that I LOVE everything as much today as I did the day it was delivered! I get so much joy looking at all the beautiful furnishings, fabrics and colors. Her style is timeless, clean, warm, and inviting. I love working with Laurel and I would not even consider changing a pillow without consulting her. I am truly grateful that I was fortunate enough to find such a talented decorator; she is a treasure!”

– Stacy, Cross River, NY



“I love working with Laurel — she has great ideas, prices are reasonable, and her sense of color is amazing. Whatever she designs also has lasting value — we still love what she did for us several years ago!”

– Liane, South Salem, NY


“I have worked with Laurel now on two large projects — a 4000 square foot house and an 8000 square foot house. She designs timeless, elegant rooms that are both beautiful and functional. Laurel has an unerring eye for color, is a creative problem solver, values the input of her clients and always remains conscious of budget. She is the consummate professional.”

– Nancy, Pound Ridge, NY


“We’ve been working with Laurel since 2002. We met her after interviewing several other designers who weren’t willing to take on a “smaller job.” I was a working mom with no time to even think about decor. Laurel came in and what a relief it was. She has always been a pleasure to work with and made the entire process fun, even. She got “us” and our taste immediately, presented many options, was mindful of our future plans, stayed on budget and wove in the new items perfectly with the pieces we already had. Over the years, we kept coming back to her for new projects, until the “small job” became nearly the entire home! All these years later, we STILL love everything she’s done; we never tire of the beautiful colors and furnishings. Somehow, Laurel has this knack for keeping things timeless and yet still, very fresh.”

– Peggy, Chappaqua, NY


Working with Laurel has been a pleasure!  She was creative, flexible, very reliable and budget conscience.  She took the time to understand our style and presented beautiful, high quality custom-designed products that were very reasonably priced.  She seamlessly incorporated items we had already purchased into her plan.  In the end, Laurel created a living room and dining room that are clean and sophisticated, warm and comfortable.  I would happily work with Laurel again and again!

– Rebecca, Armonk, NY


Laurel is a such delight to work with. Her attention to detail is incredible; from the initial floor plans of our living and dining room to selecting fabrics and fabulous pieces of furniture to artwork and accessorizing. We had first gone to a store for our family room and were disappointed with what we ended up with. However, now I realize, that is the difference between the store help and a professional designer with the kind of experience and talent that Laurel has. Our living room was especially a challenge; not for Laurel. She quickly came up with the perfect solution so that we could maximize seating. She combines this rare ability of bringing the most creative and innovative ideas while keeping our taste and vision in mind. Laurel always worked quickly and efficiently and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. We always get tons of compliments! Laurel always made me feel like I was her top priority; I wouldn’t hesitate to have her help us with other projects and wholeheartedly recommend her.

– Jennifer, Chappaqua, NY


I don’t know where to start. Laurel is super talented, professional and has an amazing vision. She has a great sense of space and design. She helped decorate our living room from top to bottom and was actually able to put both my husbands taste and mine together. It was as if she read our minds. We absolutely love it. The results are stunning and I can’t wait for her to help us on our next project.

– Melissa, Putnam Valley, NY


I have never worked with an interior designer before and I’m so thrilled to have found Laurel. I have worked with her for almost a year now, picking out everything from paint colors to window treatments to light fixtures. She has really transformed my apt. from ordinary to fabulous and I am thrilled with the final result.

Anyone looking for an interior designer, I highly recommend Laurel for not only her great taste, but for her personal service. She is easy to work with and very accommodating to your needs, working within your budget.

I look forward to working with her for many years to come!

– Adrianne, Scarsdale, NY


“I want to thank you for everything. You are amazing to work with and you helped guide me to make decisions that were spot on. I can’t tell you how the changes you suggested have made a world of difference in my home. I truly can’t wait to get home every day from work so I can enjoy my new and amazing looking entry, living and dining room. I walk into the house and The rooms are so beautiful and inviting, it just makes we smile. You rock!!! “

– Kim, Pound Ridge, NY
