Our team spoke with Michelle about her personal style, her design process and great tips on mirror functionality. See what she had to say below, along with a look at a few of her recent projects.
Q: I see you were awarded “best of 2021 projects” by ProSource twice last year, what sets your design projects apart from others?
A: I have a lot of range within the design projects that I take on, everything from a small condo on a budget to luxury home remodels. My clients range in age, style and budget and because of this, I am always trying to work within those specific parameters so I can achieve the best possible outcome for my clients. I try to listen to each clients specific needs and design goals and then make their design exceed their expectations.
Q: How would you define your personal style, and how do you incorporate that into your work?
A: I love classic lines and pieces that are timeless. I love mixing old with new and contrasting dark and lights. I love to mix in vintage rugs, and personal effects that have a meaning and story for my client. I get really excited when a client has interesting pieces such as a unique furniture piece, art or old books or decor that I can work into a design. I believe your home and the spaces in your home should reflect you!
Q: Can you tell us a little about your biggest design project?
A: I don't hold bigger design projects above smaller projects. Some of my favorite and most memorable projects have been the smaller projects or lower budget projects. Whether a project is a single room, or an entire house, I really feel that the design process is a unique journey that I am always humbled to be invited on. I always tell my clients that the design process is just as important to me as the end result. I strive to add value not only in the final outcome, but also in the journey that we took to get there.
Q: What is your methodology when it comes to picking out accent pieces?
A: I stockpile and house tons and tons of accents in a warehouse just for installs. On an install day, I bring loads and loads of options to play around with. I always forewarn clients that I over bring to ensure that I will have exactly what I need and more!
A: Where do mirrors fit into your overall design process?
A: Mirrors are my go to for creating a statement, often I can't get a client to commit to a large piece of art either because of cost or art can be very personal...mirrors are great because they don't typically go out of style, they can create a wow factor in any space, and they add light.
Q: You often work with large mirrors in your previous projects. If you had to choose one mirror from our oversized mirrors collections, which one would you choose and why?
A: love the round mirror option that is lit up - would be perfect in a bathroom!
