The experiences and relationships formed throughout the process of creating every design is very personal and unique to each client.  I feel honored and grateful to share some testimonials from clients who took the time to share their thoughts about the process of working with Refined Interiors.


We have been so fortunate to work with Laura Elliott on our full house renovation in Sea Cliff. She joined the project midstream, at a time when we were feeling quite overwhelmed by everything. Adding to the complexity of our remodel was Covid-19, requiring that much of our design work be conducted remotely! Laura immediately brought a sense of calm and order

I had the pleasure of installing one of the most interesting and unique master bath designs in my career, which Laura designed.  She demonstrated not only creative and organizational expertise to accomplish the interior design aspects of the 4800 sq ft residential remodel project, but also an ability to communicate about the technical and architectural facets of the project with me on an advanced level.

We had a great experience working with Laura on the design of our family room and living room. We have two young girls and we wanted a family room that felt comfortable but still beautiful, and Laura achieved that for us.

We appreciated Laura’s input so much when we were embarking on our first-ever kitchen remodel. She brings both technical skills and creativity to a project. She was able to open our eyes to new ideas while also warning us about potential design pitfalls

I absolutely loved working with Laura during our house renovation - she helped make our house into our dream home! Laura’s expertise, creativity, and sense of style have been invaluable through the entire design and selection process.  She carefully listens to her clients and helps with the whole process from design to the finishing touches.

Last year my family moved into an old home we wanted to modernize but didn’t know where to start. Laura guided us through the design process and managed our expectations, the vendors and contractors effortlessly. She absorbed our vision and transformed our home into a welcoming, functional space for me and my family to live, entertain, and enjoy.

Thank you, Laura, for making my new place look and feel so inviting – I love it!  I really appreciate you taking the time to guide me through options and helping me discover the personal style I didn’t even know I had!  The place looks great and I can’t wait to show it off – thank you!

Laura was a lifesaver.  When we moved into our house, I had no idea where to start.  The house was drab and boring.  Laura came in and helped me pick out the best paint colors, furniture, and artwork that brought the house to life, and made it feel warm and welcoming in no time!

Ten years ago, as one of her first design projects, Laura redecorated my house with new furniture, fresh paint colors, and artwork.  Amazingly, I still think about how happy I am that I took that chance to make a change and how much I still love it every time I walk into my house.

I was clueless about where to begin with my master bathroom renovation until Laura stepped in. She immediately suggested ideas that would complement the aesthetic that I was going for, but that I did not know how to articulate.
