I started working with Michelle when my husband and I built our custom home.  From the beginning, she incorporated our different styles to make our home beautiful yet functional.  She always provided multiple choices and allowed us to see every possible option.  Building a custom home and working with a designer were both firsts for my husband and I, and I can honestly say that we would do it again.  Michelle helped to take the “fear” out of designing a home.  She listened to our likes and dislikes and guided us into making choices that are classic and that we will enjoy for years to come.  Michelle helped us to choose everything in our home, from the exterior stucco and stone to the lighting and tile.  We have continued to work with her room by room to make our house a wonderful place to come home to.  Without Michelle’s help, our home wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful as it is today.  Although working with a designer costs money, in the long run, I truly believe that Michelle helped to save us time and money by avoiding costly furniture, painting, etc mistakes.  I would, without hesitation, recommend working with Michelle and will personally continue to do so.

OMG!  I came home from work today and was completely blown away by how wonderful our house looks.  The curtains look amazing and the new wall, cabinets, and trim colors are perfect!  The entire first floor looks like a photo out of a magazine.  We are so happy with the results.  We couldn’t have done it without you.  Thanks so much!

I contacted Michelle after I saw a home she decorated in the 2011 Parade of Homes.  I was really hesitant to use a designer since I typically like to make decisions on my own.  However, after many failed attempts at decorating a whole house on my own, Michelle stepped in.  She has been so great to work with because she offers her ideas but still allows you to be part of the whole process.  I can tell she’s worked with many different types of personalities and can read people (and their style) very very well!  I absolutely love everything she’s done in our house so far and I look forward to working with her in the future.  She’s got such an incredible talent!

I was first introduced to Michelle when we were remodeling our home.  I quickly learned how talented she was especially in her spatial abilities and working with color.  I have had numerous people ask me for the paint colors she used on my walls.  She has very good vision for what a room should look like and how that room fits into the rest of your home.  Recently we sold our home and it only took 21 days.  To a large extent the record time to sell our house can be attributed to Michelle’s unique style in transforming a house into a home.  More importantly, Michelle is helping us decorate our new house.  I believe that speaks volumes about Michelle’s talent.  It is already looking so much better i.e., wall colors, gorgeous curtains and very good use of space.  Can’t wait to do the kitchen this summer!!

Hi Michelle,
I just wanted to send a quick email to tell you how wonderful Hema’s house turned out!  As I walked through her door, my jaw dropped!  You and Hema have transformed the place into a modern, yet cozy home.  The place turned out beautiful and way beyond my expectations (and this was just phase 1..cant wait to see how the rest unfolds!).  I absolutely love the paint colors you chose as well as the gorgeous curtains (the curtains make a grand statement!).  The lounge is phenomenal and the location of where the painting is placed is so unique and compliments the room so well.  Anyways, I can go on and on about how I loved each piece you chose, but the bottom line is, all the hard work payed off!  You have great taste and its reflected all over the house!!  If ever I move to Columbus, I would insist that you make my place as gorgeous as you made Hemas!  Cant wait to see what else you have in store for her house.

I have worked with Michelle from Instyle Interiors for over a year now. I hired her after I saw the work she had done for a home in the 2010 Parade of Homes in Columbus Ohio. I simply loved the feel of the home and I wanted her to decorate my new build.
She has helped me with picking paint colors for the whole house, furnishing it, window treatments, art work, tiling and accessorizing.
Michelle is very patient and has listened to my vision as I knew the direction I wanted to go with the house. Michelle is easy to get a hold of, respects deadlines and stays within budget.
While we are only on phase 2 of the house, it looks amazing and I get a lot of compliments from everyone who comes in. We are far from being done and this journey with her has been great. I would recommend hiring Michelle from Instyle Interiors as she can help you with all parts of design and decor.
