Introducing LBM Design Studio

I have been fairly quiet over the past few months – working away behind the scenes on the blog’s new look, our new house, as well as a new website for interior design.

I have been getting more and more enquiries over the last year or so, which is very flattering, so I thought it time to take the plunge and put a portfolio website together online – the result is LBM Design Studio – I really hope you like it!

To celebrate the launch thought I would take a little trip down memory lane with you. Over the coming weeks I will share pictures of some of the rooms I have enjoyed designing the most as well as some of the rooms that have resonated most online, being shared on sites like Houzz and Pinterest.

First up is this lovely master bedroom in Battersea. It was one of the first projects I worked on and I loved this space so much – the striking wallpaper from Tapet Cafe, combined with Cornforth White paint from Farrow & Ball worked well together to create a lovely calming palette and a serene, elegant space. A calming colour palette is the basis of all bedrooms that I design – I really feel they should always be a luxurious sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.

The Vogue print in the picture above was a personal commission – I asked my talented friend Buzzy to paint it for me and he has since been asked to recreate it a few times after people have spotted it on Pinterest. I think it has been saved over 20,000 times in total, which is just amazing!

I hope you like this selection of images – if you want to recreate a look similar to this in your home, then sign up for blog updates or follow me on instagram, as I will be sharing a ‘Get the Look’ post here soon!

    Stunning room. It’s really encouraged me to go with Cornforth White for the elusive grey we’ve been trying to settle on for our south-facing, Victorian living room. Is there any chance you could provide details to your friend who did the Vogue painting? Thanks in advance! Katie.

    Hi Laura! We are using Cornforth White in our kitchen renovation. I’m curious as to what color you used on your trim and moldings here. Thanks! It’s a beautiful space! xx

      Hi Candice, good luck with the renovation. Cornforth White will ensure it’s a lovely, relaxing space!
      The trim and mouldings are in All White, but I sometimes use Wimborne White, which works well too.

    Hi Laura, which colour carpet have you used for this bedroom? It goes really well with the wall colour. I would like to try this look at home but not sure which colour carpet will match with Cornforth White. Thanks, Amy.

      Hi Amy,
      It’s a carpet called Bamboo Luxe – I can’t remember the colour, but I don’t think there are that many to choose from so hopefully you’ll be able to spot it!
      Thanks so much

    Hi Laura,
    The room looks fantastic I love the combination of colours you’ve used. I would love to recreate this look in my home how would you describe the light fitting in the centre of the room and the mirror to be able to find them online. Many thanks

      Hi Kate
      I’m so pleased you like it! The light is by Verner Panton and the mirror was from a company called An Angel at my Table.
      Good luck with your design!

    Laura! Your website/rooms are so beautiful. I love this room especially and will be using it as inspiration for a budget version back in Cardiff. Hope you’re keeping well x
