What people are saying about Inspired by Design!
"Thanks to Michelle and all her ideas, inspiration, and advice our living room went from blah and boring to fresh, inviting, and down right gorgeous. She helped me choose colors that brightened up the room. We worked together to choose furniture that is functional but also beautiful. She educated me around design elements that fit into my space and room type all while staying within budget. Michelle is an expert in her field, a joy to work with and an amazingly talented and knowledgeable decorator. I look forward to working with her again on future projects."
"Michelle is a color emergency lifesaver! We had a project scheduled six months out. Our contractor came to do the final measurements on a Thursday and informed us that he had a delay on another job and could start ours on Monday. We were now in scramble mode to make the final decisions. Or biggest hurdle turned out to be the paint color. We picked a few and then solicited the opinion of way too many people. We ended up with six colors and were not entirely sold on any of them.
We are now in full panic mode. It is 7:00 pm on Friday night and we need paint by Monday morning. I went to Yelp and searched for 'Interior Design color,' and Inspired by Design came up. I checked out Michelle's portfolio and liked what I saw. I gave Michelle a call and explained that we had a "color emergency". I asked Michelle if she would be able to come by on Saturday or Sunday. Although she had plans, Michelle was able to juggle them and stopped by on Saturday morning at 11:00 am.
Michelle showed up on time and started to get our thoughts on color and the direction we wanted to go. We walked her through all of the samples on the wall and explained our thoughts. She said she knew our color after being in our house for five minutes. It was not one of our many samples already on our walls.
Michelle showed us a sample and we immediately liked it. She also suggested a color for our front door. We had not even thought about that. Michelle solved our "color emergency" in one hour! Every day my wife comments how much she loves the colors. Michelle followed up several times to ensure that we were happy with her suggestions.
The whole experience with Michelle was awesome! It was like talking to an old friend. We would give Michelle 100 stars if we could!"
"I was renovating my kitchen and I had a picture of what I wanted. I was so overwhelmed. I asked Michelle to help and all of a sudden we were knocking everything off of my punch list! She has terrific connections and she arranged for me to meet with the right people at the best distributors. Countertops, tile, lights, paint. Check, check, check. Not only did I appreciate saving so much time by going to the right places and meeting the right people to help, but we had a lot of fun doing it.
My kitchen turned out better than I hoped it would. She helped me with those final touches that I didn't know I needed, but I am so glad I have them. I enjoy my kitchen and dining room so much more, and now we are going to start on my living room!
If you feel overwhelmed by design like I did, or even if you know exactly what you want but just need to find it quickly and efficiently, call Michelle!"
"My shopping experience with Michelle was wonderful! Not only did we have a lot of fun, her creativity, organization, and ability to put things together made the experience very enjoyable and stress-free. She was focused the whole time, keeping in mind the theme and color scheme I was going for."
"Michelle has a great eye for detail and color. Her work is creative, cutting-edge and individualized to reflect each client's personal style. She took my dull living room and turned it into a private haven. I love having a dedicated place to unwind, get away from television, and enjoy peaceful time with a book. She’s resourceful and has her finger on the pulse of current design trends. Her enthusiasm for interior decorating is evidenced by her innovative style. I highly recommend Inspired by Design’s extraordinary services!"
"After moving eleven times in the past six years, I was drained of any inspiration and creativity for my new home. The living room was a compilation of different designs with no rhyme or reason. Michelle has taken a lack-luster, cluttered space and transformed it into a warm, inviting, sensational room! To my amazement, she was able to do it by gathering items I already had scattered around the house. The best part was when I came down half-asleep for my coffee this morning and had my breath taken away by the wonderful feel and sight of my new living room. I felt a sense of home that I had not experienced in years."
"Michelle is a lifesaver! My husband and I just moved into the area and we have a very busy schedule. As a busy mother of three, I had no time to get our new home decorated. When I learned that relatives were going to be visiting us for the holidays, I knew I needed help, so I contacted Michelle. She was great! She kept style and function in mind and gave us a home the whole family is proud of. Our relatives found our home warm and inviting and were very impressed to say the least. In fact, my sister-in-law is hiring Michelle for a redesign at her house. Let Michelle work her magic on your home; you'll love it!"

"I have worked with Michelle (Inspired by Design) for the past few years and she is fabulous! She has great ideas, works with any budget, doesn't make fun of some of the prints or "treasures" that I must keep in my house that have personal meaning and don't match anything else. She will spend an hour or the entire day (and we have done both!). Big jobs or small jobs - it doesn't matter. She has done research for me when I don't have the time or energy or desire to look for a specific light fixture. She refers great people to help, like painters and window treatment vendors. Michelle is so easy to work with. She listens and makes sure she understands what you want, but gentle guides and recommends if she has ideas that she knows would work better. She can look at a room and provide a fresh idea that transforms it from plain to spec-tacular. I can't imagine working with anyone else."
