Lawrence Lazzaro, Associate ASID

Lawrence works with clients to create spaces that feel like home.

“Great interior design is more than just creating a home that looks stylish and beautiful. It has to feel personal and soulful-- and be livable. Of course I want my clients to be house-proud and excited to host a fabulous party. I also want them to feel relaxed and comfortable and able to enjoy their home while spending the evening with the family, a big bowl of popcorn and good movie.”
