About this project

This family of five had very eclectic taste and wanted to incorporate all their existing Arts & Crafts, Asian, and Native American elements. They had very literal ideas of those styles and had already purchased reproduction furnishings. I helped them find additional furnishings and fixtures that were reminiscent of the styles they loved, yet still allowed the home to be in the “now” instead of in the past. By designing custom elements like the fireplace, cabinet doors in the dining room, and millwork to hide the arches in the entry, I was able to transform the home from a Romanesque style to one that matched their style.

Before & After

Before After
Michelle seemed to understand my desire for the unique and have found me items I would have never dreamed of finding that satisfy my need for the unusual, the funny, the beautiful, the elegant, and the ethnic. Not an easy combination. So far, she's the only designer that’s actually stuck with it and pulled it off. She has given me the ability to roam and introduced me to items I’d never considered yet ground the quirkiness, with classic design elegance.
