Our Community

For all of us at Laura U Design Collective, the love of home is a guiding force. It exists at the center of everything we create, and has inspired our firm’s approach since 2006. We are proud members of organizations that share our love of home and its powerful impact on families in Houston and Aspen.

With a team of talented women, our firm is a strong advocate for women and girls. We invite you to learn more about these amazing organizations.


Fresh Arts


Fresh Arts empowers local artists through programs that build knowledge, amplify local resources, and connect communities.

As creatives, art helps drive every decision we make as designers. Fresh Arts programs help advance the careers of local artists and creative entrepreneurs by complementing their artistic practices with access to localized resources and career development opportunities to serve artists of all disciplines and stages. Laura & Michael have been long-time supporters of Fresh Arts and Michael is a past Fresh Arts Board President.


Girls Empowerment Network’s mission is to ignite the power of girls by teaching them the skills to thrive and believe in their ability to be unstoppable.

As a women-owned business, the Laura U Design Collective team is proud to support the We Are Girls Conference, an annual meet up that encourages young women to find their power through self-efficacy.

Anderson Ranch Arts Center


Years of service to the Aspen Snowmass community and a mission to encourage creativity and engage people of all age sets the Center apart. The Center offers everything from workshops and artist talks to internships and scholarships. Their commitment to both the arts and the Snowmass community has inspired all of us at Laura U Design Collective.

Laura and her husband Michael have long admired the mission of Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and are honored to be on their National Council.



The Aspen Youth Center is a cornerstone for youth in the Roaring Fork Valley community. They are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive place where youth in grades 4 through 12 connect, learn, and grow during their out of school hours, for free.

Laura’s twin girls attend AYC and our team has seen first-hand the benefits they provide the community. We love sponsoring their annual Aether Games and their well-known gala.
