Consilium: Advice, Arrangement, Consultation, Design, Object, Plan, Purpose, Reason, Wisdom.


This Latin definition well embodies our mission and our devotion to Design.

From our point of view, which is through a wall of windows in a high-rise office near the Galleria, we are inspired by the momentum in this cultural mecca that is Houston.   Our skyline is dotted with luxury high-rises, both residential and commercial, and we at Consilium are lucky enough to expose their inner beauty through design.  Many of our Clients are foreign nationals, from Mexico to India, and we see an incredible variety of styles between each project.


Led by Designer Laurie Coton, who is known for both her industry knowledge and warm personality, Consilium Home provides the highest standard of attention to each client’s project.  Laurie says, “We recognize that every project is unique, and we strive to create a design experience that is exclusive to each Client.   Some Clients prefer to step back and hand us the reins, which allows them the “wow” experience at the end.  While others prefer to work alongside us, getting excited about each decision along the way.  It’s your decision; it’s your home, after all.”


A few of our Clients were so pleased with their surroundings at home, they asked us to dedicate the same efforts to their business.   Thus was created, Consilium Office.   We have upgraded Medical offices, Real Estate firms and Oil & Gas, to name a few.  


Consilium Home services the Inner Loop, River Oaks, Upper Kirby, Bellaire, Post Oak, The Galleria, West University, Memorial, Tanglewood, and beyond.  We have experience in high-rises, residential homes and commercial offices.   If you have a vacation home outside of Houston (or even outside Texas), call us; we travel.


Laurie Coton serves as the President & Creative Director of Consilium Home & Office.  Prior to leading Consilium, Laurie founded Laurie Coton Designs, for which she was the principal Designer for over 15 years.


Laurie is a native Texan and third generation Houstonian who has worked and lived in the Inner Loop for over 25 years.  When Laurie was a new mom, she began flipping houses to bring in income and still allow a flexible work schedule to be with her young son.  With interest in both the real estate transactions and the design aspect of refurbishing the homes, Laurie’s contracting evolved into a professional career as both a top-producing Real Estate Agent and a formally-trained, ASID accredited Interior Designer.


Laurie holds degrees in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Houston and a BBA in Marketing from the University of Texas.


With experience in both industries and a strong focus on Interior Design, Laurie has a unique perspective on finding a house and making it a home.  Laurie has incomparable expertise of the city’s trade resources and evolving styles.  With a trusted team by her side, along with her warm, charismatic style, Laurie is able to provide personal attention to every Client.
