Katherine Moody—Irving, 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!

Katie Lewis - Costa Mesa, 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."
