Testimonials

"I had never used a decorator before working with Burke Designs. I had lived in my house for 20 years and it needed to be updated and sometimes change can be hard for me. I was concerned about working with a designer—my tastes are casual and my style is comfortable. Laura met with me and worked to understand what I wanted. The results were way beyond I ever expected—the colors blend from room to room and make me so happy every day. She worked within my budget and had great sources for products and services. I worked with her a few years later on furniture and plan to work with her next year to update my master bedroom. It is always a pleasure and a joy to work with her."

"Home, sweet, home does not begin to describe the way I feel about my home after hiring Burke Designs. Owner, Laura Burke, transformed my house into a beautiful, warm, and comfortable home. She took the time to discover my personal tastes and preferences, and put together a living space that perfectly fit our family. From the fabulous art above the fireplace, to the warmly lit sitting area in the bedroom, Burke Designs created a relaxing and peaceful place we adore calling home."

"After expressing my thoughts to a neighbor on how frustrating of a process it was to begin a master bathroom remodel the neighbor then referred me to Laura. At first, I never considered working with a designer—it always seemed like a luxury I couldn't afford. But, after meeting Laura and discussing the project, I felt at ease because she listened to my needs/wants and asked me design questions/offered input I hadn’t thought of. As a result, I hired Laura and she came up with the overall design plan (which was totally my style) and managed almost all aspects of the project. The end result is a beautiful and more functional bathroom! The part that I liked most about working with Laura and her team of contractors is that if there was a problem, they always offered a plan B and plan C, if needed. I would recommend Laura and her team to anyone—the quality is awesome and I felt like I was in good hands the whole time. The money spent was worth it and I plan on re-hiring Laura and her team in the future for additional projects."

"Working with Laura was a pleasure from start to finish! I appreciated her creative ideas and excellent design sense but valued just as much her willingness to understand what we were, and were not, looking for with our bathroom updates. We found her communication and project management skills to be exceptionally strong as she worked to drive multiple efforts to completion with her talented and versatile crew. They took great pride in their craftsmanship, and we are so pleased with the results! What began as two bathroom updates turned into the refreshing of three and several other improvement projects under Laura's guidance. She and her crew have a strong commitment to customer satisfaction—they tackled any and all challenges that arose with professionalism. "

“When I first arrived at Meredith, I asked our Interior Design department head who would be 'fun, creative, and reasonable'. She did not hesitate when she told me about Laura Burke. I could not ask for a more enjoyable and fun experience than working with Laura Burke. I’d never worked with an interior designer before and was afraid that my home would reflect more her and less me. I could not have been more wrong. Laura listened, searched for just the right things and was a real partner throughout the entire process. I never felt anything other than my beautiful home reflect me and my life. It’s been a joy and a comfort to come home each night to my very own retreat.”

“Laura was helpful in giving the Meredith College parlor a new look and feel while still using many of the existing pieces. The new colors and fabrics that she selected are contemporary and timeless. I know they will still be in fashion for years to come. The space is now warm and inviting….a perfect place for alumnae to meet as well as host events.”
