Laura Canfield

Interior Designer

Laura Canfield grew up in Cincinnati, OH. Her first brush with fate as an interior designer came at the age of 5 when she escaped to Laura Ashley during a trip to the mall with her mom. By the time she was found, Laura had pulled all the textiles and wallpaper for her new bedroom. Laura, a University of Kentucky Merchandising, Apparel, and Textiles graduate, has honed her design skills through various design and DIY projects in her two former Louisville homes. As a mom of three young children, she understands how to bring the unique balance of style and functionality to a home. Laura appreciates all interior styles, but has a special place in her heart for light and crisp transitional designs.
