Meet Michelle

Interior design has been a life-long passion for Michelle Rohrer-Lauer, the award-winning founder of Michelle’s Interiors. She has dedicated her career to creating extraordinary lifestyles through luxury home design.

A graduate of the design program at Gateway Technical College, Wisconsin, Michelle has an innate sense of style and a conviction that each home should embrace the spirit of the people who live there.

Her inspiration begins with her clients’ personal stories, but she draws on decades of experience
working with the essential tools of design: color, texture, scale, function and most of all, creativity.

Function before form.

Michelle believes that the best spaces can transform you. Her aesthetic is inspired by  fashion, architecture, luxury automobiles and the history she discovers during her travels here and abroad.

I love luxury cars. They remind me of a custom home where the exterior design draws you inside. When you sit in a finely engineered car, the seat hugs your body. The controls are within easy reach. The details and tailoring are superb, and you don’t hear outside noise. It seamlessly combines beauty and purpose, like a professionally designed home.

She is dedicated to connecting her clients to sensible, eco-friendly interior design solutions, such as sustainably harvested and fast-growing woods for furniture, natural wood alternatives, natural fabrics, water-based finishes and much more.

Michelle is known for her energy, creativity, attention to detail and talent for making each home perfectly fit the people who live there.

Welcome home!

It’s time for you to live life beyond the way you’ve envisioned it.

Michelle's Interiors did a wonderful job of selecting and coordinating workers for the job as well as providing invaluable assistance on the selection of materials/product to be used on the job. These services ranged from selection of carpeting/wall papers to painters and materials such as wall and floor tiles for the bathroom finishing. Michelle's staff was attentive to the work schedule, prompt in responding to e-mails and phone calls as well as having timely responses to a question regarding an invoice. I could not be more pleased with the experience I had with Michelle's Interiors and would highly recommend them to other people in the market for interior design services.

Michelle has a terrific eye for design and applies it towards reflecting the the client's own style and personality. I made a big investment in my residence and wanted it to feel like 'my home'. Michelle and her team were patient and collaborative enough to go through multiple revisions until we found the solutions that were just right. By the end of our project they were making suggestions to me that helped push the boundaries and make choices such that I feel excited every time I walk in the door. What more can you ask for from a design team? Highly recommended.

Fabulous design is what we experienced with Michelle's Interiors. Michelle and her Team developed a beautiful design that exceeded our expectations! Our project was extensive from powder room renovation, re-design of a family room, offices, dining room and multiple bedrooms. We loved how Michelle and her Team developed the designs with consideration to our personalities, style and comfort. The colors, fabrics, lighting and accessories that Michelle used in her design has now made our house a home!

We hired Michelle to help us redesign our master bath and are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. We wanted to create a spa like setting complete with a larger shower, luxury whirlpool and other creature comforts that women enjoy. Michelle came up with a stunning design that involved some changes of moving a wall, adding pocket doors and relocating some of the plumbing.

My experience with Michelle's Interiors was amazing! We started with my master suite in my suburban Chicago home, which was spectacular! Due to Michelle and her staff's professionalism and the beautiful result in the Master suite, I moved on to finishing the entire lower level. From the cabinetry, to fabrics, to the stair case to every detail it was perfect! My lower level was transformed into a wonderful Tuscan pub, media room and game room that was enjoyed thoroughly by my family and all of our friends. Of course then we moved on to "touch up" a few rooms on the first floor, adding Michelle's magic to my kitchen, office and great room. To say the Great room 2 story fireplace is magnificent is a gross understatement. I also engaged Michelle to assist in the design of my home in Florida, providing me with full electrical schematic and furniture placement. To list the attributes of Michelle, her staff and any contractor she provides, every person is professional, highly skilled, polite, trustworthy and treats you and your home with the utmost respect. In a word "perfect!". (Note that my projects began in 2004 and continued through 2009)
