“Sandy and Laird have been amazing design resources both to me personally and to a number of my Clients as well. They offer an impeccable sense of style easily creating a classic, timeless design but with fresh eye/approach. Their fabulous taste, blended skills and wide ranging resources are only matched by their lovely demeanor. Both Sandy and Laird are truly a pleasure and so easy to work with – always arriving to a meeting smiling, punctual and with willingness to meet your schedule even if it includes last minute changes.
“I can endorse both Sandy and Laird fully for anyone seeking interior design expertise to fully update their home, or simply refresh a few spaces. They will approach either project with the same sense of creativity, responsibility and care.”
“Sandy has guided us through design projects both North and South with impeccable taste. She is a great listener, easy to work with and gets the job done.”
“I met Sandy and Laird in 2015 when they worked on my home in Greenwich. They did such a wonderful job that 2 years later I asked them to decorate my summer house in Nantucket where they were involved in every aspect of the project from the construction phase to the last decorative detail.
“They were so easy to work and with their expertise they were able to take my thoughts and ideas and create spaces that reflect my personality and lifestyle.
“Both projects were large in scale and demanded organizational and time management skills to keep the projects on time and to coordinate all the many facets of the decorative process which they did flawlessly.
“Thanks to Sandy and Laird each home is a warm and welcoming sanctuary. I would jump at any opportunity to work with them in the future and appreciate the friendships I have gained in the process.”
“I found Sandy Morgan a delightful Interior Designer to work with. She is very professional with great ideas. I am very happy with my beautiful Study and Master Bath.”
“Laird Tolan transformed the entry way and living room of our colonial. She really took the time to understand my vision for the home and patiently tried an array of high-gloss paints until we got it just right. We get tons of compliments on all the work Laird did. She has a great eye for fabrics, too. You won’t find a nicer, more patient person to work with.”
“We have worked with Laird for several years and every suggestion of hers is spot on! She is creative and patient and for both we are very appreciative. When we were ready to paint the interior of our house, Laird suggested perfect colors as well as wallpaper too. For someone like me who would have done shades of grey everywhere – she encouraged us to lighten it up using a brighter color in one room, that is sunny and a great contrast to other areas of the house. Laird also suggested perfect carpets for our entry, stair and our living room. I’m very thankful to have Laird’s guidance. We trust her keen insights and continue to recommend her to anyone looking for design help.”
“We were most impressed with Laird’s professionalism and follow-up. It allowed us to do the entire remodel of two bedrooms and two bathrooms remotely.
“In the age of COVID, it was helpful to have a designer that handled all of the renovation work in our absence. Laird met with all of the subcontractors and was on-premise when needed.
“Not only did she practice good safety and health protocol, but she consolidated trips and practiced appropriate social distance. Tackling a renovation project is never easy from afar, but SMI made it painless. Communication was timely and thorough, and SMI was able to complete the job despite the disruption with the COVID.”
“Laird has a good eye for scale, color and styling. She was very clear about the materials she wanted to incorporate into the project. We were able to discuss all details of execution to best achieve the vision she had for our client. She was easy to work with and had good follow through on all design details. Laird was always available whenever I had any questions about the project. I look forward to working with her again.”
“Sandra Morgan has been a valued colleague of my architectural practice over 20 years. Blended with Sandra’s positive energy, level headed approach to projects and bright personality, she would be a valuable asset in any endeavor.”
“Sandy, it was a pleasure working with you on our mutual client’s Larchmont, NY home renovation project. From the onset, through completion you always presented and delivered creative solutions to fit the client’s design aesthetic and our constructive methods. You are truly a professional and pleasure to work with. All of us at RRBuilders look forward to working with you on the next project and we are always excited to recommend you to future clients! Thank you again.”
“Sandy & Laird have a keen eye. They have decorated just about every room in our house. by the time they were on our second room, I just deferred to Laird. She has such a great sense of style and knew exactly what we liked and what would work for our casual lifestyle.”
“Sandy, thank you for dropping by and sharing your pearls of wisdom! You can see things that I would never be able to see. I really appreciate your help as always.”
“Now on my third project with Sandy, I continued to be amazed by her clever creativity, her eye for color, and above all, her interpretation of my vision, rendered in luxurious comfort and style.”
“I have an eclectic home with a colorful, airy, modern great room, an authentic Federalist living room and a Mark Twain red parlor. Laird was able to design and provide beautiful carpeting, window treatments and fabrics to enhance the looks of all of my rooms. I loved working with her–as I had with her mother, Sandra Morgan, 30 years ago.”
“Sandy’s artistic eye adds a spark to every room she touches. She managed to provide us with high quality and casual luxury, while staying on budget.”
