A McAllen, Texas, native Laurie is passionate about spending time with her family and her “fur babies” (two American Bulldogs, Avery Louise and Merlin Kohl), food and exploring new things. In her spare time, you can find her refinishing/antiquing furniture, antique shopping and working on a number of DIY projects.
Her favorite books are the Harry Potter series and she has several favorite movies, including P.S. I Love You, The Holiday, Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker and Inglorious Bastards. Her iPod is filled with Bruno Mars, Tim McGraw, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd and her guilty pleasure is binging on Netflix with a big bag of popcorn and a dill pickle. If she weren’t a designer, Laurie says she’d probably be an elementary school teacher, like her mother.
