"I bet I could make that." 

Laura James

Laura is an editorial intern for HGTV.com . Constantly thrifting and upcycling, she refuses to spend money on things she can – or thinks she can – make herself. Midcentury modern mixed with traditional charm is her favorite aesthetic. She loves minimalist concepts – whether in interior design, tiny homes or capsule wardrobes. When she’s not writing for HGTV.com or DIYNetwork.com, she’s probably listening to a podcast or NPR, planning her next trip or making a mess at her craft table.
