FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
So how does this "interior design" thing work?
Every designer is different but here at Laura Fox Interior Design we pride ourselves on being what we consider a "full-service" design firm. This means that we work with you from point A through point Z to design the perfect room or home for you and see it through to completion.
Is there a certain design style that you specialize in?
While every member of the Laura Fox Interior Design team has their own personal style preferences ranging from glam transitional to modern farmhouse we really try to set aside our tastes and biases and instead design for our client.
What sources do you use in your designs?
It depends on the client! We work with close to 500 different vendors for furniture, art, accessories, window treatments, wall coverings, floor coverings, and more. This means that we have an assortment of options, many of which are only available to designers, that we can pull from to create a design that is perfectly tailored to our clients' tastes and budgets.
How long will my project take? When can I get started?
Just like how every client is different, so too is every project. Even a project that doesn't require any construction at all and is simply a change in furnishings can often take 12-16 weeks to see through to completion if there are any custom furniture pieces included in that design (which we love to use as it ensures that our clients are getting something unique that is specially created for them).
How does pricing work?
We start things off with an initial, onsite consultation in which Laura will come and meet with you in your home to discuss the project in detail, see the space, and have the always thrilling budget conversation. There is a $250 fee for this consultation which will be applied to future bills should you choose to move forward.
Do I have to work with a specific architect or contractor?
Nope! We love creating new relationships with our colleagues on the architecture and building side! Some of our most long-standing client relationships have grown from our relationships with builders and architects. It's also always informative to learn different techniques or ways of doing things by working with new people. So, if you have an architect or contractor that you love and want to work with, we relish the opportunity!

Sir Wilbur Scott
What is Wilbur's favorite food?
Anything and everything! If someone is eating in the LFID office you can be certain to always have a little furry companion staring you down and praying that you'll drop something. But he especially loves raw carrots and Peruvian chicken.
What does a day in the life of Sir Wilbur Scott look like?
Typically Wilbur starts the day with a nice bowl of kibble followed by a walk with his doting mother. Then, Wilbur & Laura head to the office where he gets straight to work on his extensive task list of naps, snuggles, and some tug of war with his toy of the moment.
How did Wilbur come into Laura's life?
Where did Wilbur's name come from?
Laura thought it would be nice to give the little guy a more formal name and thus he became Sir Wilbur Scott the Beast. After choosing this fancy moniker, Laura received copies of his birth documents and discovered that his parents were named Master Edward James Cookie Monster and Princess Justine Leigh Pia. Could it be any more perfect?!?
