Reflecting the client’s tastes and vision, under the guise of the designer’s expertise.



cheri-leggett-interior-design-laguna-niguelCheri Leggett, a resident of Laguna Niguel, has been in the interior design industry for over 25 years. She began her career as an intern with her sister’s firm in 1980 and formed Courton Design in 1986.

She is an eclectic designer who strives to include diversity in her projects as well as a sense of history.

Cheri has worked on homes primarily in Orange County, California, but also has designed for clients in Lake Arrowhead, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Napa Valley, Canyon Country, Century City, Santa Monica and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Her design concepts embrace a vast array of styles, always keeping the client’s visual perspective in mind. It is paramount that when the job is complete, it reflects the client’s tastes and vision under the guise of the designer’s expertise.

Cheri excels in the selection and placement of accessories in a home or an office. Without these treasures, these spaces are never complete in her eyes. Some clients prefer an array of decorative items that they have collected in their life experiences and travels, while others choose a more minimalist approach, with just a few stunning pieces to complete their design vision.

Cheri’s Design Philosophy
for a Warm and
Welcoming Home

The interior should appear to have a history.

It should offer some surprises for the eye.

Include disparate textures, shapes and materials.

Above all , it should be spatially harmonious.

What happy clients have to say.

I’ve relied on Cheri’s services since I moved to Irvine and she has consistently provided up-to-date, inviting design for my home. From furniture selection to bathroom design, room renovation, and after-flood restoration, she has demonstrated good problem-solving skills and is always professional and fun to work with.

Cheri helped us define the effect we desired and managed to meld our different ideas into a warm, simple and inviting home. Rather than impose her style on us, she respected what was important to us and translated our words into rooms that became physical representations of our expressed thoughts.
