After graduating from Connecticut College, cum laude, with a BA in Art History, she took editorial positions at House & Garden and Mademoiselle, where she created the decorating column Chez Mademoiselle. She later established her interior design firm, art gallery and retail shop for Swedish antiques and fine home furnishings. Much like her design aesthetic, SM Home emanates an urbane, traditional style with touches of modernism throughout. Her knowledge and passion for art resulted in collaborations with galleries in NYC and inspired her to establish an art gallery housed within the same charming building as her design firm. Sandra raised her family in Greenwich and now resides with her husband in Darien.
Laird graduated with honors from Middlebury College and spent the next 14 years in the New York fashion world, with executive positions at Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel and Victoria’s Secret. Recognizing the growing connection between fashion design and interior design, she joined Sandra Morgan Interiors and SM Home in 2004. Laird was raised in Greenwich and now resides with her husband and 3 children in Pelham, NY.
