I am a native of Greeley, CO and I graduated from CSU in 1991 with a major in Interior Design and a minor in Construction Management. I have a strong background in space planning and lighting design and I am excited to be a part of the Imagine More team. The work and relationships I have built through my Interior Design & Consulting business have enabled me to bring a complete perspective and understanding of the building/design process to Imagine More. I can offer custom lighting layouts, kitchen and bath designs and custom window treatment specifications. It is truly a pleasure walking my clients through the process of making their homes a place they love. When I am not in "design mode", I enjoy weight training and spending time with my husband and two teenagers in the great outdoors of Colorado!
Laura Holmstrom joined the Imagine More team in 2012. Born and raised in Colorado, she is a graduate of Colorado State University with a BS in Interior Design. Laura is a certified ALA Lighting Specialist and has over ten years of lighting, design and merchandising experience. At Imagine More, she enjoys partnering with builders, designers and homeowners to select the light fixtures that fit the function and design for each space. A number one priority is seeing a project through from start to finish and making sure the homeowner is satisfied with the result!
My first passion in life is design. I have worked in the field for seven years, including designing fully custom homes from the ground up. I absolutely love the process and challenges of making a clients dream a reality. My second passion in life is fitness. When I am not designing and creating awe inspiring spaces, you can find me teaching fitness classes at the local rec center or running races on the weekend. I have three little ones including a set of twin girls, who keep me on my toes. I was born and raised in Colorado and as a family we love spending time discovering all the natural wonders this state has to offer.

Living in San Diego all of my life, I found myself going to the mountains rather than spending time at the beach, and thus began my dream of someday living in the mountains. In 2006, my dream was realized when I moved my dad and my interior design business to the mountains of northern Colorado. Having been an artist from the time I could hold a crayon, much of my interior design work has been in the area of paint color and fabric selection, remodels, and space planning. Knowing the importance of lighting, but having little experience with it, I jumped at the chance to join the team at Imagine More. I am confident now that I can bring a full range of expertise to the homeowner or builder.
In my off time you will find me enjoying my beloved mountain on a four wheeler, "antler hunting", or spending time with friends around a campfire.
My motto is "Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark"

"I'm happy to be part of the Imagine More team and couldn't see myself anywhere else." -Michele
Melissa is new to the Imagine More team and excited to be a part of the new contractors
showroom. Althought new to lighting, her background comes more from the builders
prespective. She worked at and was part owner of a small business doing carpentry, small home
remodels, building outdoor living spaces, and loving both the design and construction parts of the
job. Having owned several businesses and working many years in customer service; she knows
the importance of being organized, listening to the customers needs, and following through
I am new to the Imagine More team and I am excited for the great opportunity to work with them. I
have been around construction my entire life. Growing up with a dad in the field definitely stuck
with me and helped me gravitate toward the design field. I am still working on my BA in Interior
Design. I am relatively new to the lighting field, my experience is in cabinets, but I am more than
ready to learn about lighting and take on all the challenges it, like cabinets, also has. I have
designed Kitchens, Baths, Mud Rooms, Laundry Rooms, Closets, and Garages for cabinets in homes
ranging from $150,000 to Million dollar homes. Meeting with homeowners and making their dream home
into a reality home is an amazing feeling and I like knowing I helped make it possible. Outside of
designing and working I spend my time with my daughter whether it be staying in and watching movies
or going on nice walks/hikes with her and our black lab mix. I was born and raised here in Colorado
and wouldn't trade it for the world!
