"I purchased a home that required extensive design services. MSI managed the successful gutting, design, rebuilding, space planning and decorating of multiple bathrooms, living spaces and a kitchen. Michelle was very easy to talk with. She made clear all my options and was very concerned about making my home unique – cognizant at all times of my individual personality, taste, and needs.
Michelle’s creative style and presentation allowed a new way for looking at things. She makes contradictions work in a fascinating way. All my different rooms and their elements were pulled together cohesively with style due to her excellent eye for color and layout.
She is very creative in her use of materials realizing some items need to be high-end and others do not - always spending money wisely. From fully custom designed pieces of furniture, local retail selections and special, personal accessory touches, my home was made into a timeless, individual reflection of me. I would highly recommend MSI for a great experience in creating a special home for yourself."

My sister has a gift for design that was evident her entire life and is validated when you see what we call our family beach home. Everyone who visits us, falls in love with our home. It spares no modern comfort, but you still feel as if you are part of the simple, casual, beach environment. Her decision to retain some of the original architectural elements but redesign the layout makes it charming and practical. Re-imagining the inherited furniture allowed her to create a dream space without overspending. Her wise selection of materials has withstood the high traffic of guests, salt air and humidity
Her eye-catching perennial garden that surrounds the house is the perfect complement to our delightful home. It is so much fun to be sitting in the front porch and hear a passersby comment on how beautiful our home is. Yes, she is my sister. But Michelle has an innate talent that I believe anyone needing design help should tap into."

"We have worked with three different interior designers over time and never left truly satisfied by any of them. Michelle was the fourth and, by far, the most talented and professional. She needed to fix the work done by a previous designer for as little as possible (because we had already paid for the job once before) and did so without entirely scrapping the previous job. Our home is now phenomenal and one that we love! There is no need to look further if you are shopping for an interior designer, Michelle is your answer."

"After our color consult with Michelle we felt confident in the decisions being made for our new kitchen. She quickly assessed our choices and provided us with suggestions. Her direction was smart and our kitchen, due to her, turned out gorgeous.”

"Thank you, Michelle, for re-imagining my family’s William & Mary era chairs into pieces that fit my contemporary home. Your unique eye for color and texture combinations is a gift that transformed what looked so old into something new and sophisticated."
