Luxury is an element of lifestyle. It enriches our lives, enhances our environments and leaves everlasting memories.

—Michelle Rohrer-Lauer

Interior design has been a life-long passion for Michelle Rohrer-Lauer, the award-winning founder and principal of Michelle’s Interiors. She has dedicated her three-decades-long career to creating extraordinary lifestyles through luxury home design, becoming one of the Chicago area’s most well-respected professionals.

A graduate of the design program at Gateway Technical College, Wisconsin, Michelle’s aesthetic is inspired by the architecture and history she discovers during her travels here and abroad, as well as her own innate sense of style, color, texture and function. She brings a depth of knowledge to each project that encompasses the arts and critical math skills, a rare combination in her field.

During the past 30 years Michelle has created one-of-a-kind homes for hundreds of Fortune 500 executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs and others in the Chicago area and throughout the United States.  Her clients and colleagues respect her energy, creativity, attention to detail and talent for making each home fit the unique lifestyle and personalities of the people who live there.

Michelle won First Place Kitchen in the 2018 ASID-Illinois Design Awards of Excellence and a Best Powder Room award in the 2018 Kitchen and Bath Design Awards, sponsored by Kitchen and Bath Design News magazine.  She is co-author of “Today’s Inspired Leader” and is featured in Kids’ Space Idea Book and Kids’ Rooms.

Dreamy Pie, Mascot


Style is a way to express yourself without having to speak.

—Dreamy Pie

With six years of experience in the design world, Dreamy Pie is the much loved mascot of Michelle’s Interiors, and being the mascot sure comes with its perks! She can generally be found snuggled up in the rug department or brainstorming under the back tables. She loves testing the quality of the carpet samples as well as thinking over the blueprints. Dreamy’s favorite part of the job? Getting paid in treats!
