Establishing Laurel Feldman Interiors in 1983, Laurel works to make the design process one of enjoyment and excitement for her clients.

Her projects have included the restoration of the Governor’s Mansion for the State of Illinois, the interior of a published Frank Lloyd Wright home, a chapel and numerous private residences in Illinois, New York, California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Vermont.

Laurel’s photography has always been a personal artistic endeavor. For many years she has taken photographs for her own personal inspiration, reference and creative energy. Photography for her has always been an extension of her design world. She uses her “eye” to compose the image – the difference being the creation of the space’s interior is already present. She sees all of art, design, and nature as one. Photography for Laurel allows her to capture the ephemeral moments of beauty that she so vividly sees.
Interiors that emphasize elegance and sophistication with a sense of history and comfort.

DREAM HOME 2012-
TheFoyer / Entrance Hall is always a prelude to the feeling of thehome.
Seeingboth nature and art as one, Laurel designed the entry composed of richmaterials and textures, classic architectural design, timeless use of art andart objects—both past and present—andalways a bit of surprise and cheerfulness to reflect her point of view.
Water(the leitmotif) and its sounds, koi fish, orchids and greenery, a tree root,floral images and patterns, soft and hard surfaces, layering of materials,light and mirrored reflections are used throughout this welcoming space.
Forexample, the "eglomise" hand painted wall of glass tile layered withan over-scale mirror; a 19th c. floral carved marble Chinese tub; ethereal andcolor drenched paintings; a delicate and glowing hand made floral & leafchandelier; custom designed artisan porcelain, as well as, Laurel's own artphotography all expand the feeling of liquidity, tranquility, and visual waterreflections.
Lightpearlized Venetian plastered walls and crown are juxtaposed against the blackhand-scraped walnut banded floor. The floor is accented and outlined with lightcolored limestone border reflecting the shape of the recessed end niches.
Gilding,and the mixing of gold and silver finishes in glass, metal, and wood seenthroughout the entry invokes a feeling of elegance and a classic mix of oldworld and modern design.
The entrance hall’s main dynamic sculpture, an art object from nature, is an actualtree root from Northern China c.1850. Itis used as the central entry table layered with Laurel's favorite art objectsand ever changing floral arrangements that create a beautiful welcome to greet guests!
