Designing for Two
Designing for two people who have newly come together can be ambitious. The objective is to marry the two styles into a cohesive design where both parties feel expressed. With both people entering a new residence there are two collections of items that need to now be fused into one.
Building a Friendship
When Michelle first met with Linda and Larry to consult on their home in Libertyville, a life-long friendship began. The couple loved modern style and color, but wanted to incorporate some of their older pieces that had quality and sentimental value to them. The problem lied in figuring out which pieces to use. Michelle was there to help coordinate and determine which pieces would work with the newly designed rooms. Her dedication to putting the client’s needs first and making the process smooth and stress free is why Linda and Larry knew they had found their designer.
The second project that Michelle’s Interiors worked on for the Fletcher/Pitts’ was a condo in Chicago. They wanted to have a place in the city for entertaining and a fun weekend getaway. This also allowed them to express their vibrant and colorful design aesthetic. Michelle worked with them to pair the energy of the city with their uninhibited style.
As time passed the couple found themselves spending more time at their condo and wanted to transition to primarily reside in the city. This led to the the necessity of a multipurpose second bedroom that would allow the privacy needed to get work done, as well as leaving the option open for guests to stay the night. Michelle was able to transform the condo to exceed their expectations for the space.
Michelle’s Interiors was intrusted once again when Linda and Larry purchased a vacation home out of state. A strong foundation built on trust and understanding has been key to the ongoing success of this relationship, along with the wonderful collaboration shared. Looking forward to the projects to come!
