Interior decorator — Austin, Texas

Let's cut right to the chase ...

You haven’t bought new furniture, painted your walls, or updated any of your home decor since the day you moved in—or maybe longer.

You also have that *one* spot in your house that’s a total eye-sore, but you have no idea what to do to make it look better. You swear you’ll get around to figuring something out someday, but life these days is more than a little bit busy.

What’s worse? You work in a high-stress environment and unfortunately, you haven’t figured out how to leave the work stress at the door. You swear you’re going to get better about letting home be the one place you don’t think about your job, your boss, or your clients. And yet there you are again, doom-scrolling on social media and reloading your email inbox *just* in case. 

But what if your home was your sanctuary—the one place in the world where you didn’t feel like you had to be “on” all the time. Yep, even if you work from home. 

Hey there, I'm Michelle.


You're a highly ambitious person who's made a name for yourself—your resume and LinkedIn profile are stacked with awards and accolades.

But if you walked through your front door step you'd never know it because you're still lounging on the couch you've had since college.

You've dedicated all of your mental energy to your professional life, even at the expense of your living spaces. But now, you're ready for your house to actually *feel* like home.

Not only that, but you're ready to start inviting your loved ones over to actually enjoy the home (and life) you've been building for yourself.

You dream of the day you'll host your monthly dinner party with your best friends or Thanksgiving dinner with your family. And when people leave? They'll feel more refreshed and energized—just like you do every day.

My job isn't just to design a space you love—I want your living space to be your sanctuary and source of peace, comfort, joy, and security—not just somewhere you lay your head each night. Especially after a stressful day at work.

Most interior designers only focus on how your space looks—but not here...

At Cultivate Your Space, we care about how your space functions and how it makes you feel.

"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!!!

Andrew M.

"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.

Jenny D.

"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.

Adam H.

"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.
