Luxury custom home boasting an outdoor oasis in the backyard, Laguna Beach CA

Julie was able to take my scattered thoughts, huge file of pictures and conflicting ideas to give me a design for my dream home. She really got what I was looking for and helped me create it. She rolled with my changes and uncertainties and helped me end up in a great place!

Luxury eat-in kitchen boasting custom cabinetry and two islands, Laguna Beach CA

Julie Laughton did a great job on my kitchen and bath remodel. Julie has an incredible eye and is able to size up a situation quickly. Julie did a great job bringing my vision to life. She LISTENED to what I wanted and delivered on that vision. Julie was able to offer up many new ideas. She always stuck with my vision (so if I didn't like her idea she didn't care). She was always willing to do what I wanted. All of her subcontractors did a great job! I highly recommend Julie's work. I appreciated her dedication, her direct approach, and her ability to "get it."
