Michelle

Even as a child, Michelle’s home surroundings were important to her. When she and her friends played Barbie’s, Michelle’s favorite part was to create Barbie’s home. 

Her young life was punctuated by many moves to new places.  Each move gave her an opportunity to create a comfortable and familiar environment in her room, one which reflected her personality and taste. Reflecting back, this is where the importance of one’s surroundings really became a part of who she is and how she wanted to help others.

Michelle started out as a Certified Window Treatment Consultant, she then expanded her work to include all aspects of what makes up the “canvas” of a home. Michelle furthered her passion as an Interior Decorator for Creekstone Homes in Colorado.  She took her sense of aesthetics, a broad knowledge of products, a love of color and texture, and created award-winning model homes from a blank canvas of newly finished construction. During her tenure, Creekstone won the coveted 2006 MAME Award for Best Interior Design for a New Home. Michelle credits Rhonda McDonald, owner of Creekstone, for being a mentor and friend who generously shared both knowledge and encouragement.

Living abroad in New Zealand for a time helped form Michelle’s appreciation for a culture that isn’t too quick to discard. She also loves the European sense of belonging people have to a place where she sees a culture in which relationships are nurtured – meals planned around conversation at a solid table in a sunny room with casement windows, meaningful objects and pleasing colors.

A love for all styles of design, from Transitional to Mid-Century Modern. Eclectic to Shabby Chic, fuels her joy in creating beautiful spaces that feel harmonious and bring delight to her clients.

A Certified Interior Decorator®, Michelle’s passion is helping ‘everyday’ people enjoy the sense of home that comes from having surroundings which embrace your lifestyle with flair.

Whether her clients are remodeling, building a new home, or simply want to modernize a room, Michelle’s enthusiasm for design will bring a breath of fresh air to your project.
