We’re kicking the year off right at Vetrazzo with a collaboration with one of our all time favorite brands, Oceanside Glass & Tile, makers of colorful and creative recycled glass tiles. Like us the tile makers use recycled materials and artisanal craftsmanship to create new and beautiful design materials. We also share another thing in common - a deep love of color, especially bright aquas and deep blues inspired by the sea.
At home and at work, designer Laura Umansky lives out her philosophy of livable luxury for interiors. Since purchasing her family home, a 1925 Tudor Revival, and undertaking a complete renovation teaming up with Newberry Architecture, Laura and her team have taken the concept of fabulous meets functionality to heart. Not only will this home be a place for Laura and her husband Michael to raise their two young girls it will also stand as Boulevard Show House opening in 2018 with tickets benefitting Preservation Houston.
This month we kick off a design collaboration with Laura U Interior Design on a new line of recycled glass surfaces - four colors from neutral to vibrant - each embodying Laura’s design ethos, Stay classic. Be current.
Here, Laura Umansky, the designer behind it all, talks with us about her new line of colors: Vetrazzo By Laura U, each inspired by the designer’s commitment to beautiful, timeless design with worry free products.
“At Laura U, we look to the past for inspiration, but we’re fashion-forward,” Laura said. “We also believe strongly in livable luxury. Our clients should have beautiful, luxurious interiors that also perform well for everyday realities. You need to be able to live in your home, and Vetrazzo embodies both of those key points of our philosophy.”
If there is one element present in every Laura U interior design it’s bold color. Whether she’s designing a traditional historic home or a contemporary new build, Laura Umansky begins with a soothing neutral base and adds layers of rich colors and cheerful metallics to create exuberant spaces.
