Movie & a Makeover - Laura Walker BairdLaura Walker began her career studying art history in Venice, Italy. Returning to the states, she honed her design and antique skills assisting an interior designer and well-known antique dealer in Atlanta. Soon after, Laura opened her own design business that flourished in Atlanta until moving to London, UK. There she worked to transform the homes of other expatriates. While living in London, Laura exported containers of antiques back to the U.S., combining an American sensibility with a European aesthetic. After four years in the UK, Laura relocated to Milan, Italy, where she taught design classes and offered a courier service to English speaking dealers looking for antiques in Italy. Following several years in Italy, Laura Walker Ltd. was opened in Atlanta, an interior design studio with directly imported Italian antiques. Laura Walker Ltd. is accessible design with unique style and function. Laura's publications include features and articles in Beautiful Homes, Better Homes and Gardens, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Jezebel Magazine, Custom Home Builders, Papercity, The Peach, and Decorating. She is a featured designer for TBS' Movie and A Makeover.
Her most recent endeavor is a 4,000 sq ft. showroom, Verde Home, in Atlanta's Westside, voted Best of Eco-Chic by Atlanta Magazine. The showroom features Tibetan rugs, organic upholstery, antiques, and accessories. Click here and learn more about Laura's Verde Home.
