About Michelle Lord
A lifelong resident of Southern California coastal areas, Michelle’s career began by decorating banks for the holiday season, as she worked her way through college. She graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a degree in Interior Design.
She continued to grow professionally working at Homestead House, where she worked her way up to the position of Senior Designer. Michelle was named “Sales Designer of the Year” while at Homestead House.
After several years in home furnishings, she realized there was a strong need for an upscale, yet affordable firm that specialized in meeting the client’s individual needs. Over the years, the firm grew and Michelle decided to open a retail design boutique where her business has continued to thrive.
Michelle's specialty is to create a special space that is functional and timeless for each client. She designs home theaters, home offices, kitchens, and baths for residential and commercial clients. She enjoys using architectural influences in her designs and she strives to use these influences as the focal point for each room. She excels in space planning, whether it involves new construction or remolding, to maximize both functionality and aesthetics.
