Michelle believes in working with her clients, not just for them.

Testimonials

Michelle was the designer on our recent total kitchen remodel. She was able to quickly understand our requirements, style and tastes, and incorporated them into a great kitchen design. She also made a few of her own observations about our previous kitchen and recommended some features that we hadn’t thought of, with great results. On a personal level she was pleasant and easy to work with. I would recommend her services again any time – we are extremely happy with the outcome!

Michelle is personable, creative, aware of budget and approaches every job with great integrity. She is very detailed oriented on all design choices from fit to function. The scope of Michelle’s knowledge is very impressive, from kitchen to bath, to living spaces.

Bob A, Builder ~ Minnesota

Michelle has been extremely helpful in guiding my clients through the decision making process on interior layouts, color and material selections. Michelle brings creative ideas to the table – that answer the clients questions – sometimes before they are even asked. She goes out of her way to bring material samples to the client, guides them through the sometimes difficult process of putting together different textures.

Dan D, Builder ~ Minnesota

I first met Michelle when she was brought on as a Designer for a project that require more experience than anyone in the company I was with at the time had. I was incredibly impressed by her knowledge of the process and her efficiency in getting things accomplished.

Michelle is easy to talk to but very professional and is primarily concerned with representing quality materials. I enjoy working with Michelle whenever I get the opportunity.

“Michelle is a very talented designer. She has shown it in her work and her dedication to every task. Michelle is very tedious even in the minor details of her work to make sure the client is happy with the job performed and within budget. We have been very satisfied with her design skills and would hire her for the next remodel job.”

Kris & Shawn ~ Red Wing, MN

“Thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication and most importantly, your taste! We so appreciate how you wanted to get to know us and our likes and dislikes when it comes to the aesthetic of our house. You happily worked with our (very) specific requests and guidelines and you were so flexible and able to adapt different ideas so that everything worked together. Our house looks great and I still get excited coming home because it is just so pretty, and it makes me happy!!

Last but certainly not least, your perseverance when it comes to finding the exact right piece for the right price makes all the difference. You always found us quality items at a great price!

Thank you. Thank you!!”
