About Laurel Dane Designs

I have decided to change my business name to Laurel Dane Designs, LLC as we I relaunched in the Pittsburgh area. Here’s the story…


The state dog of Pennsylvania is the Great DANE. We have 2 beautiful Great Danes in our home.   Like the Dane…my designs & concepts are larger than others! 

LAUREL shows the beauty you find in nature, your roots and all other things.  The mountain Laurel is the state flower of Pennsylvania as well as the street name of  my childhood home. 

My vision is to create DESIGNS for homes to be purposeful, creative and individualized to suit our lifestyle.  I’d love to customize your home to meet the needs of your family. 

I always have a million DESIGNS running through my head. I’m happiest when I am creating. I love to create spaces that work efficiently yet are aesthetically pleasing.


I’m Kristen and I’ve been married my Matt for 26 years. We traveled around the world with the USMC and have 4 beautiful children. Our oldest daughter attends West Virginia University and our 2nd daughter attends the University of Pittsburgh.  We have 2 sons- one is in the USMC boot camp and the other is a 7th grade snowboard/skater who keep us on our toes. 

Our family has lived in Pensacola, FL, Jacksonville, NC, Oceanside, CA(twice), 29 Palms, CA , Iwakuni, Japan, Tampa, FL and Roanoke, VA.  We recently relocating to the suburbs of Pittsburgh July 2020 and I’m making our current house into our home one project at a time.
