I FINALLY FOUND MY DREAM HOME
After years of searching, I finally found my dream home. I just needed help turning my vision for the home into reality. I learned about Julie Laughton’s work and reached out for a consultation. Together we worked out a very aggressive plan to do significant renovations in just three months. I knew that meeting the proposed deadline would be difficult, so I was skeptical, but Julie and her team executed flawlessly.
Not only did Julie deliver, everything far exceeded my expectations. She took my vision, made it better, and finished it perfectly. And when I say perfectly, I mean it. There was no punch list or rework. She transformed my home into an absolute dream and I am so grateful for her vision, commitment, and professionalism.
HER TALENT AND HARD WORK MADE OUR JOB AS HOMEOWNER MUCH EASIER WHILE DESIGNING THE HOMES OF OUR DREAMS.
It's been 20 years since we met Julie and our kitchen still functional for our growing and changing family looks beautiful as day it was installed. Since then we have built 2 other homes from ground up and Julie has been on board on both providing the drawing and vision for all the custom work in the interior as well as taking the extra steps to see that the work is done as designed and envisioned. She has been a great asset to all our projects and we really enjoyed working with her—all her talent and hard work made our job as homeowner much easier while designing the homes of our dreams.
JULIE AND HER TEAM ARE OUTSTANDING.
Julie takes responsibility for everything and manages everything. She visits the site every single day and manages every aspect of the work. She is personally the single point of contact and responds to calls and texts immediately. Her team is just as professional as she is. Her guys show up every day. She keeps everyone on schedule. She has incredible attention to detail. The quality of the work is exceptional, and we couldn't be happier with her, her team, and the overall experience.
JULIE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST ....... TRUST HER AND GO FOR IT!
Julie is the absolute best in the biz! We're so grateful to her and her wonderful team, especially Richard and Eloy, for transforming our independent radio station in Laguna Beach KX 93.5 into a modern, loft-style, hip work space! Not only does she get the construction job done perfectly, her eye for design is unmatched. My problem with a remodel is I really have no idea what will look good, but Julie DOES. Trust her, and go for it.

SHE LISTENED TO WHAT I WANTED AND DELIVERED ON THAT VISION.
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).

Julie Laughton was a pleasure to work with on the remodel of my kitchen in Laguna Beach. Her schedule was very accommodating to mine and she made the entire process seem effortless.

I would recommend her services to anyone who is in need of an interior designer.
SHE REALLY GOT WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.
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!
THANKS TO JULIE IT WAS A MUCH LESS STRESSFUL PROCESS
When I met Julie I was bit overwhelmed at the prospect of the remodeling process and all the decisions that had to be made in advance, not to mention creating the style I really wanted and maintaining style throughout my home. Julie made it easy by putting all options in front of me in a timely manner, so I would have all my contractors questions answered on time and helped guide me on my style, keeping me focused through the project to the end. My kitchen turned out beautiful and on time and budget. Thanks to Julie (my secret weapon) it was a much less stressful process, I learned a lot and it was fun.
WE CALL JULIE BECAUSE WE KNOW WE WILL GET QUALITY WORK.
Julie and her crew have done excellent work on our home exterior and interior over the years. When we need something done we call Julie because we know we will get quality work. We just had painting done in living room/kitchen and the detail and care was beyond impressive!
WE SET OUT TO FIND A CUSTOM CABINETMAKER AND FOUND MUCH MORE
We met Julie just after purchasing a 1937 Wallace Neff home in Pasadena. The kitchen was original and intact but a disaster. We set out to find a custom cabinetmaker and found much more... Julie could sketch all ideas right in front of us and then she was able to draw a new space plan and custom cabinet plan for the kitchen which included her time working with us on the overall look as the many trips to the cabinet shop where she oversaw all the details of the work as it related to the drawings she drew, and the making of custom doors just for our job right in the cabinet shop.
CONGRATULATIONS TO JULIE AND HER INCREDIBLE TEAM
I want to offer my congratulations and thanks to Julie Laughton and her incredible team of construction artisans on their successful completion of our beautiful backyard deck. This is the second project Julie and her team have done for me. The first was an extensive remodel of our entire downstairs living area and kitchen. Both projects exceeded my expectations. If you are considering a construction project, remodel or outdoor build I would like to share with you my own personal experience with Julie Laughton and her team. For me, two of the most important aspects of picking a design build contractor is confidence and trust. Confidence that the person I have chosen has the gifts and capabilities to envision my project and execute the work with excellence and Trust that the person I’ve chosen has an “inner compass” whose “true north” is integrity and honesty. Not only to do what they have agreed to do but also to be honest about poor design choices I may be envisioning. In my experience with Julie over 20 plus years these key qualities are her trademark. Finally, Julie is a truly gifted designer. Spaces “speak” to her and she sees and envisions design ideas through a very rare gift. If you are looking for an amazing designer and a great construction team I would suggest and recommend very strongly you set an appointment with Julie and see for yourself.
