Over the last fourteen years, Laura and her husband Patrick Butler-Madden have built their business renovating and designing properties – overseeing all aspects from planning, design, construction, through to completion. With a passion for architectural history, timeless pieces and a sense of sustainability, they focus on re-working and breathing new life into homes.

Laura's designs are fresh, serene and elegant; they give careful consideration to the architectural bones of a building alongside the practicalities of modern life. The resultant home always exudes an over-riding sense of elegance, comfort and calm.

Client Experience
"It was my first booking with The Expert and will definitely book again. Laura was patient, efficient and extremely knowledgeable. She followed up on the same day with a list of recommendations having completely understood the brief."

"I loved working with Laura! I needed help primarily with the kitchen lighting design in the new home I am building. Laura explained to me how she approaches lighting design and what I should think about in choosing light fixtures. She also gave me several excellent resources for light fixtures that I had never heard of. After talking to Laura I feel less stressed and more confident in finalizing my kitchen design. Laura is super nice and down-to-earth; I highly recommend working with her! "

"It was great to talk through our 3 bathroom renovation with Laura. She had advice on where to spend and save, and tips for child-friendly design. She shared how she would tackle the tricky layouts we inherited. So many designers work only with multimillion dollar budgets for wealthy people. I wanted to consult with someone who has extensive experience remodeling their own homes that they live in and own, with their own dime - just like I am."
