Laura Mako (May 29, 1916 - May 10, 2019) was an American interior designer and decorator known for decorating the homes of many Hollywood stars. She was considered "one of the best decorators in the field" and worked with clients such as Bob Hope, Henry Mancini and Dean Martin. She designed the interiors of Betty and Gerald Ford's post-Presidency home in Rancho Mirage, California with a style the New York Times called "Palm Springs via Palm Beach," and Town & Country called "desert modern aesthetic...and, most importantly, happy."
When Mako was a young woman she was considered a protegee of Helen Hayes and was given away by Hayes' husband Charles MacArthur at her wedding. She was a godmother to Lorenzo Lamas. Mako designed home interiors and also Hollywood institutions such as the Jessica Nail Clinic and events such as the wedding of Princes Scheherazade.
