Michaeline was a pleasure to work with as we updated our home. She listened to our vision and took it further, using her creativity and experience to “create a space” that is unique to us. Michaeline has great vendors and her calm demeanor made the process effortless. Her store/design studio was a great place to see things in advance and get ideas. We look forward to working with Michaeline on future projects.

Project Date: August 2017

Project Price: $10,000 – $49,999

We hired Michaeline to renovate our living room, dining room & kitchen. It was quite an overwhelming job and we had no idea how to approach it. Michaeline and Franzi, her assistant, were able to give us a comprehensive plan, detailing everything from a color palette to furniture and accessories. They collaborated with us throughout the entire process, all while being respectful of our budget. Michaeline also added very creative touches that really made our space unique and special. We look forward to working with her on future projects.

Michaeline has been a pleasure to work with since day one. At our inicial meeting/interview, she spent over an hour getting to know me and my project (which I loved bc many designers I interviewed did not take this much time or wanted to charge). I have loved working with Michaeline since her date of hire in October 2017. She is professional, patient, outgoing and very responsive- no matter where she is.
As my project winds down, the relationship she builds with her clients, makes you want to think of another project to continue the relationship (which I’m sure it will continue once we done). She truly is awesome!
