From the start, Michelle has had a passion for interior design. This love for design has followed her throughout her life. While attending business school, she spent her spare time taking art classes, planning events and sewing her own fashion creations. After graduating in 2010 from San Diego State University with a degree in Business Marketing and minor in Economics, she worked in the fashion industry managing eCommerce and marketing for a luxury swimwear company. 

Although the fashion industry held a special place in her heart, Michelle never stopped dreaming of creating beautiful and unique interior spaces.  This drove her to return to school for interior design at the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, CA. Here she developed her distinct sense of style that can be described as collected and bespoke. Inspired by vintage finds, world travels, and nature, Michelle finds beauty and design inspiration where ever she goes. Michelle’s dual background in business and design makes her well equipped to work with clients to create realistic goals and work within budgets, all while bringing the client’s vision to life.
