I have just begun working with Laura on my project and am very grateful that she was willing to pick up the mess another designer left. Working with her is a wonderful experience. She is very responsive and professional. Her experience and knowledge of design are extensive, and she is willing to help you achieve the style you desire. I needed someone to work out a lighting design for me and found her more than satisfactory in this area. Highly recommended.
Laura Mergens Sullivan designed our new Master Bathroom remodel project. She produced a gorgeous design which encompassed each detail we requested and then provided detailed to-scale drawings which facilitated both the bidding process and clarity for the contractor scope of work. We found Laura to be professional, creative, and timely. Her contributions to making our vision a reality were invaluable. We highly recommend her design services!
"Laura Mergens Sullivan is an Interior Designer with an exceptional eye for detail. She knows all of the nuances that make a client's space their own. She continues to impress me with her knowledge of construction making her very easy to work with. She understands that the design doesn't stop at the plans, it continues until the end of the project. She has excellent communication with her clients as well as contractors. Laura keeps her ideas fresh and up to date with the newest trends and components that make life easier in the home. I have had the pleasure working with Laura professionally for over 14 years. I recommend her to many of my clients who are in search for a thorough and conscientious designer."

"We hired Laura for all the cabinetry design in our new beach home which needed to be very contemporary and unusual designed. She definitely fulfilled our request..from all the space planning, design concept, cabinetry finessing and layout, project coordination, unique finishes of ribbed aluminum and brushed steel textures, juxtaposition of glossy matte materials, along with complete installation support.
Overall, she was totally professional, thorough..and patient, especially as we needed to make some last minute refinements around changing code issues. We considered her a member of the total home completion team - architect, builder, owners and Laura! This home and most of the cabinetry design were featured in the March 2014, issue of San Diego Home and Garden Lifestyles magazine. "

"My job was not the easiest due to structural issues with irregular walls, floors and plumbing constraints, and other
challenges. However, Laura was there every step of the way assuring me that every challenge encountered due to structural was resolved in a timely decisive manner. Her fine eye for design and her meticulousness to detail
created a beautiful kitchen that I have desired and dreamed about for a long time. I am so very glad that I met Laura because she made the entire project worth waiting for and perfect! I would highly recommend her for your next kitchen bath remodel project."
"Laura designed our Kitchen and entertainment center and did an amazing job! She is very talented and has great vision. Both the kitchen and entertainment areas turned out great and we continue to get complements on both! So of course when we bought another home she was the one we called to help us with our next project.
Laura is very personable and we also enjoy spending time with her while working on our project!"
"I hired Laura to draw up design plans for my kitchen addition/renovation and was impressed with not only her design ideas but also her knowledge of construction and building regulations. Laura is very easy to get along with, listens well and works with you in regards to your own ideas, your interest, and of course your budget.
"I contracted with Fine Designed Interiors approximately three years ago for a full service remodel project of my condominium including kitchen, three baths, and other areas. Renovation/remodeling services included selections of paint , flooring, moldings, tile, cabinetry, counter-tops, furnishings, art work, lighting and space planning. Laura is a very talented professional designer. I would highly recommend her for your next interiors, kitchen and bath project. I love my kitchen and master bathroom!"
"We have manufactured and installed window coverings and bedding for Laura in many homes in the last 15 years.
She uses great fabrics and has very innovative designs and details. Her clients have always been pleased with their design projects.
Most of all she is very easy to work with, provides detailed paper work and designs that are easy to follow and is always professional."

"Laura helped me create my dream professional office space. I was hesitant, reluctant, and overwhelmed at first however, she constantly provided assurance that the space would be fabulous. We worked together throughout the whole process. I was able to pick and choose the things that I liked and I did not like. Everything was focused around my dream of having a blue velvet couch for my space. I am beyond amazed by the final product. I have not only clients ask me about my office space, I also have other professionals constantly complementing me about how beautiful the space is. I love everything about it! Will use her again and recommend her for your project!"

"It was a pleasure to have worked with Laura at Fine Designed Interiors. She helped me create my dream kitchen last summer and I'm still in awe every time I walk into the kitchen. Laura is very knowledgeable, accommodating and confident. She also has superb taste having recommended me the kitchen island light fixture that sets off the entire room.
I highly recommend working with Laura and believe she will help make your vision a reality."
"I renovated 1.5 baths and a dressing area in 2015. After being abandoned by another designer I found Laura. She listened to my frustration and the ideas I had. She enhanced my ideas with her expert design ideas. She was also willing to work with a couple of contractors that I had for electrical and tile work. The end result were bathrooms and dressing area that I love, are very functional, and we both love the design. Laura gave me the right timing and costs for the project, and she worked well with the installers and my contractors. I hope I can work with her on future projects."
"My husband and I utilized Fine Design Interiors last year and we were greatly satisfied. The challenge for us was blending our styles together into one living area. Laura helped us find that common ground. We were able to achieve a design style that reflected both of us! Her services for us included space planning, furniture, window treatments, color coordination, and accessories. She is delightful to work with and we both would highly recommend her!"
