Client Experience
"Mikel is absolutely AMAZING!!! I truly enjoyed my session with him. I hit a wall in the process of designing my family room. Mikel helped me get the ball back rolling by sharing his insight on selecting drapes, coffee tables, accent chairs, rugs & lighting to best enhance the space. I am now equipped with everything I need to have the family room of my dreams. Thank you again Mikel!!!"

"Mikel saved us thousands of dollars by talking me out of a permanent construction solution to a temporary problem. He made a few key design suggestions that would have never occurred to me and they totally transformed the space. And he was utterly warm and approachable! All in all a great experience!"

"Our consultation experience with Mikel was AMAZING! We are building our home and will need to select interior finishes, paint colors, and all the details that give a space style. Through Mikel's thoughtful questions we were able to walk away from the consultation with a clear vision for the great room of our home despite having been stuck trying to put the pieces together before our call. Mikel's expertise and creativity are evident through the process. We'll be scheduling again with Mikel!"

"Mikel delivered & absolutely exceeded my expectations! He read my prep questionnaire and solved my problem despite my offering the caveat - "if possible" -- He DID the impossible. His solution is excellent and I am excited to make it happen. He offered even more great suggestions -beyond what I asked- right up to the last moment of our time together! I have great notes! His best skill: he LISTENS to the client & is able to quickly offer a range of options designed to satisfy. Simply the best!"
