Your space should feel like a sanctuary—not another place you sit in stress.
Give me the vision
You start each morning in a flash and you're one highly caffeinated individual. You're also used to the belief that work comes first (or at least...your life tends to center around your career).
You've always wanted your home to feel like somewhere for you to kick your feet up and exhale, even if something went haywire at work that day—but your Target decor isn't exactly the vibe.
And let's be real for a sec: it's not like you're expecting your room to look like you pulled it out of the latest issue of Architectural Digest.
But you don't have a spare second to even think about redecorating your home, and it's not like you'd even know where to start.
Shopping is not your idea of a good time, and you want a designer & decorator you trust to take your vision and create a space of intention that functions for you and your lifestyle (even if you have other family members in your home).
Now, you need someone to give you the vision.
"Months later, I can't help but look around and love this place that is both beautiful and a reflection of me and my family."
I look around our home now, and it is exactly us. [...] It was awesome to see how she helped bring out our own styles and personalities into our home. Michelle has a gift of making small tweaks to what already exists to make big impacts.
"Michelle is masterful in her skill of breathing new life into a home and I am so thankful for her work."
Michelle has been instrumental in adding her precision, skill, and style to nearly every square inch of my house. She has demonstrated how a carefully placed lamp, beautiful houseplants, [...] can transform my mood and mental health. Michelle has great style and is able to ask the right questions to help me determine my priorities and style while taking into account my budget.
From ten different stores and seven different design styles: nothing looks like it goes together... and it's not really working.
Does this sound like you?
You've got hand-me-down furniture you've acquired over the years that you secretly kind of hate.
You've got a bit of a fixer-upper on your hands, but you don't know what you need to do to give it some TLC.
Your "supposed" style and current space just reminds you of someone else—yes I'm talking about your ex.
You want your home to feel like a sanctuary, instead of someplace you only sleep at night.
You've never had a space that you could truly call your own, even if your style *is* a little out-there
You recently went through a big life transition and your living space feels like one big memory museum.
"She turned our house that felt like an empty museum into a warm, inviting & beautiful home!"
Michelle is AMAZING! She listens to what your dreams for your space are and helps turn them into a reality. Couldn't be more grateful and will highly recommend her forever!!!
"Her process was so easy and we loved that it comes with some perks with the retailers we used!"
We hired her to help us with a full remodel of our kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. I ended up hiring her for my company's new office & she was equally as helpful. Michelle knows how to stay within a budget and the end results are always beautiful.

Book Your SpacE
First, you’ll create a mood board of styles + items you love. Then, we’ll take an inventory of your current space(s) and assess what’s working, what’s not, and what’s absolutely gotta go. This is where you’ll also set the intention for your space and how you plan to use it.
Next, Michelle will take the info you’ve given her to create a customized design for your room(s). You’ll get a complete list of items to buy and what size—for things like furniture, wall decor, lamps, and rugs—all itemized and arranged for you on a personalized vision board. You’ll also get a floor plan so you know exactly where to put everything.
Once your finalized design is delivered, you’ll have two weeks to ask Michelle any Qs you’ve got. You can either buy everything all at once, look for similar items while you’re out thrifting or shopping secondhand, or slowly grab your items as you transform your space over time.
IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE RENTING OR BUYING, YOU DESERVE TO LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE.
+ You want to incorporate more of your personality and signature style into your living space.
+ You're open to adapting how you utilize your space so it feels more functional to live in.
+ You're ready to let go of old energy that's no longer serving you and your home and say hello to something new.
+ You're looking for a recommendation for one specific piece of decor (ie: a lamp, a rug, a paint color)
+ You want someone to come in and project manage your home renovation or installation.
+ You're trying to copy-paste someone else's style, instead of discovering your own and making it yours.
give me the vision spotlight
a modern & Functional Kitchen reModel
I love the way that Michelle is able to hear what we are looking for and offer direction and expertise in the design that feels a lot more like us. We have worked with her on designs with varying budgets for the materials, and she does so well at helping us get the most we can for what we have. Our kitchen and my most recent offices are my personal favorites.
An Online Interior Decorator and I'm here to design your living space so it looks as good as it makes you feel.
If there’s one thing you need to know about me…it’s that I have a sixth sense for knowing what you and your living space needs so it matches your style and how you’re here to serve the world.
If there’s one thing I know about you…you’re also ready for your living space to be your favorite place to recharge, so you can get back to what you do best when it’s time to power back on. Because the truth? Your job will likely always have at least *some* stress to it, but your home can be your safe place to get away from it all.
My sweet spot is being the online interior decorator expert for your project, so you can get back to your day job while I create YOUR sanctuary that’s fashionable, functional, (and maybe even a little fun) for each room in your home.
Absolutely! Why start from scratch when you don't have to? During your consultation, you'll get to share what pieces are *definitely* staying so that I can build them into your design and floor plan.
Yes! I require 50% upfront to book the room(s) you'd like designed. The remaining 50% is due on the day your final design is delivered to your inbox. And I'll give you a heads up on your delivery date during your consultation!
We *do* offer in-person consultations on a case-by-case basis and for an additional, one-time fee. There is an additional $150 fee for projects within a 30-mile radius of downtown Austin, Texas, $300 for a 30-125 mile radius, or $600 for a 125-225 mile radius. If you'd like to request an in-person consultation, please let us know in your inquiry form.
You're welcome to ask anything related to the room(s) you've had custom designed. However, any additional questions outside of the scope of your project will not be eligible.
You will get two weeks of access after your design is delivered to ask anything related to the room(s) you've had designed through the Give Me The Vision virtual design service. If you need support after the two-week period, you can also schedule your free, one-time complimentary 15-minute check-in call to ask additional questions.
No—Give Me The Vision is a virtual design-only service. You will be responsible for executing your project, including purchase the items for your space.
