She is a veteran project manager who is skilled at applying her talents and techniques to effectively and efficiently manage projects from start to finish.

Laila Milanian is also experienced in interior decorating and design. She says that many people are mystified at what goes into designing an interior space. She says that they are often confused about the difference between interior design and interior decorating, but as someone skilled at both she can explain the difference. Interior design, she says, draws on aspects of product design and architecture, in addition to conventional decoration.
It is a creative process, she says, in which someone such as herself analyzes information, establishes a conceptual and design direction for a space, and produces illustrations and documents relating to the proposed design. Laila Milanian says that interior design involves looking at the big picture: thinking of a house, for example, as a series of spaces that are linked into a whole through a series of hallways and stairways. She aims to create continuity of design throughout. Design themes do not necessarily have to be the same throughout the house, but they should have common elements that work together.
Laila Milanian is a graduate of Saint John’s University, where she received a degree in Computer Science and Business; of Parsons University at The New School, where she received a degree in Product Design and Merchandising; and of Pennsylvania State University where she earned an MBA.
