Interior Designer, KBN Interiors
Drawing out a client's creative vision comes naturally to interior designer Laura Barrick Floyd who thrives on listening. She works with clients to create interiors that uniquely reflect the interesting layers of their personalities, which come to life in all the fine details.
Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Laura's knack for design was cultivated at a young age in a family whose professions were based in the commercial and residential construction industries. Thanks to a recommendation from her father, who did business in Charlotte, she went on to attend University of North Carolina at Charlotte. At UNC, her lifelong passion for art and design began to take shape as a profession.
Her design career began while working for a tile and stone showroom. Laura went on to work for Tile Collection, where she designed kitchens and baths—working with a full-scale remodel crew that managed the execution of her designs. This led to a position with New Old, a custom homebuilder, where she was the design project manager.
Laura stays up to date on current trends and vendors in the design world by being involved. She's an NKBA member and served as president of the Interior Design Society. She's actively involved with Habitat for Humanity, and she attends industry conferences and markets that keep interior design ever evolving.
Hiking, being outdoors, and digging into books are a few of Laura's loves. She also relishes time spent with family and friends, and participating in the local art culture. She thrives on new challenges, and finds that the more she learns about the world of design, the better her ability to work in different vernaculars and with clients of unique backgrounds.
