Welcome to Allora Design & Interiors. Are you looking to infuse style and personality into your home and create a space that reflects you, your family, and your lifestyle? I'm so glad you found me! My name is Lora Wyman and I have been dreaming up and designing spaces since my childhood. I have my mamma to thank for showing me how creativity, resourcefulness, a good furniture layout, and a fresh coat of paint can transform a space- giving it new life! I received my B.S. in Interior Design from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2006. I began my career working in the field of commercial design for a few years, but soon realized a new calling - motherhood. Together, with my amazingly supportive husband, we have 4 beautiful children and one spunky pug named Ruthie! Through the years of many job relocations, I have designed my way through several home updates, remodels, and DIY projects. Now we are rooted in the Katy area and I am happy to offer you my design services! Allow me to curate authentic, one-of-a-kind design solutions that fit your needs, wishes and budget. Design decisions are numerous, and the choices can be confusing and overwhelming. I will guide you through the design process, and together we'll make choices for your home that will ultimately result in a good investment and a thoughtfully designed space you will love to live with for years to come!
Step 1 - Discovery Call
We talk about you, your project needs, design style and budget.
Step 2 - In-Home Consultation
We walk through your space clarifying scope of work and sharing ideas and goals to move forward in the design process.
Step 3 - Presentation
I present my designs using mood boards and floor plans, source materials, fixtures, furnishings, etc. for your approval.
Step 4 - Procurement
I can purchase all materials and products for your project and manage the ordering and delivery. This helps the project stay on track and saves you time and the hassle.
Step 5 - Installation
My team will bring in the furniture, artwork, window treatments, accessories and all the finishing touches to style your space.
My style is modern traditional with touches of nature brought in through earthy elements. I love to layer with pattern, texture and timeless neutrals and colors that blend together to create a sophisticated, yet relaxed and lived-in look. Vintage and antique pieces that have a history are my design love language. My passion is to create a space that is like no other, sourcing special treasures and unique finds to give character and personality to your home! In my free time you'll find me browsing antique stores to seek out something special! If this is your style too, I would love to hunt down that vintage sideboard or antique armoire for you! I can also offer to custom paint any piece I find or one that you may already own and give it new life. Allora, let's design!
