Clients Say

My house is a Craftsman home from 1909, so when my wife and I decided to remodel our kitchen, we knew we had to stay true to the style (without sacrificing the modern conveniences).  We got in touch with Michelle and within minutes of starting our conversation, I knew I had found the right person.  She showed a deep understanding of the history of the Craftsman style and an artistic vocabulary that clicked for us.

After our first meeting, she pointed us towards several contractors whom we interviewed.  The one we ended up going with did a fantastic job, but we could have gone with any of them.

Next, we bought beautiful Motawi tiles for our backsplash that we picked out of her showroom.  She really gets what works in terms of color, light, and mood.  It turned out beautifully.

If you need legit contacts; if you need a job done right; if you mean Craftsman and you want someone to really get it, go with Michelle.

It takes a team of professionals to pull off a successful remodel project. For years we struggled trying to find a designer that understood and appreciated the Arts & Crafts movement.  Michelle has the depth of knowledge and understanding along with exceptional vision, which helped us accomplish our dream. She also introduced us to talented artists who helped us create the special touches that make our home sparkle.  Our home is just beautiful, beyond our expectations!

Thank you Michelle.

I've worked with Michelle Nelson for years now and honestly can't wait for our next project with her.  She's a designer who balances vision with extraordinary attention to detail, beauty with real practicality, and enthusiasm with a keen understanding of who you are.  She has made our house glow with her color selections, taught us about the history of our house, directed us to companies with the highest quality of products, and insured that every detail of our recent remodeling project with perfect. I've learned so much from her and she has been a pleasure to work with throughout.  And, I've learned over the years... she is right about pretty much everything!
