“Life is crazy and filled with so many wonderful and unexpected surprises if you keep your eyes open for them. I like to bring this wonderment to my design projects and yes, a little surprise here and there too. Each of my projects evolves from the vision my clients have. All of my life experiences, surroundings, fashion and feelings converge and become a pool I pull from to help mold this vision. Boundaries, let’s just say I don’t mind stepping to the edge and even crossing over sometimes!”
Michele and her husband Steven moved to Aiken so that they could raise their daughter in a town with a true sense of community. She joined her Nandina family as her daughter’s dependence on her lessened and is today an Aiken lead designer. Michele graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Interior Design from George Washington University’s Mount Vernon Campus and her experience has encompassed yachts, retail spaces, commercial projects and residential. Michele, an avid horseman, has successfully weaned herself from her habit of collecting horses and presently lives on a farm with just one horse and an adorable donkey. Her home is an amalgamation of styles and her life…her love of the outdoors, of art and always a bit of whimsy. The ocean is her respite and summer often finds her traveling north to her family home on Martha’s Vineyard returning recharged for the next challenge.
