Our house would not be the charming, warm and comfortable home that we have today without Michelle Dorton! We have hired her several times over the years, to help us with many remodeling projects and have always been thrilled with the results! She is a skilled and experienced designer who is easy to work with. She has an eye for color and a talent for choosing appropriate furnishings that enhance one’s home, no matter the size or style. Most recently, we wanted to have our hardwood floors refinished, replace the carpeting, put new flooring in both bathrooms and have some interior painting done. We consulted with Michelle, and she assured us that the project would be finished in six weeks. Not only was it finished on time and on budget, but she made sure everything was done in a professional manner. We are extremely pleased with our beautiful floors. She never disappoints!

I did an extensive remodel of my home, involving the gutting and rebuilding of two bathrooms, complete interior and exterior paint, wall coverings, window treatments and new furniture. Throughout the entire job, Michelle did my interior design consultation, and because I did not hire a general contractor, kept an eye on the subcontractors often alerting me to issues before they arose so that I could keep the contractors on task to get the job finished quickly. She not only has vast experience in home decor and remodel issues, but was very professional and extremely efficient, something one greatly appreciates when they are paying by the hour. What I found most impressive is her uncanny ability to pick wall covering, fabric, and paint samples that not only worked well together but fit my taste and style.

I was referred to Michelle fifteen years ago by a friend who was very pleased with her design work. Over the years Michelle has helped with design throughout our home at various stages of our growing family. She has always had exceptional ideas, is professional, prompt, and presents herself well with her super, positive personality and style! From the gorgeous carpet I enjoy walking on everyday, to the unique fabrics that adorn our windows and furniture, our home has been so enjoyable due to Michelle’s care and talent. I have hired her for several projects in our own home, and have successfully referred her to others. I highly recommend Michelle!

Working with Michelle was the best decision we have made regarding our home decor. Although we knew the type of design we wanted, we had no idea how to achieve it. Michelle listened to us and completely transformed our home into the elegant beach house design we desired. Throughout the entire process, she presented us with thoughtful choices (from paint color, to fabric, to lighting, to furniture), and gently steered us through. The end result exceeded our high expectations and we now have the home of our dreams! Michelle is a true professional and her eye for design is impeccable. We highly recommend her services.

We have worked with Michelle twice, and on both occasions found her easy to work with and very professional. Both times, we were very satisfied with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Michelle to friends and family.
