For inspiration, Michele most often turns to Pinterest. “If I need to see what something looks like, a corner fireplace or small nook area, for instance, then I go there to see if I can find a layout that I have in mind, but need to see in use.”
But she’s just as inspired by a walk around Montgomery’s. “The store, the designers, the looks we carry – it’s all so inspiring,” she says. “I also love to look through our catalogues and websites.”
Her favorite aspect of her work is meeting new people with tastes different than her own, yet still being able to use her knowledge to revamp their spaces.
A beautifully designed home, after all, should reflect its owners and the memories they’ve made – not whatever is trending today. “I like classic pieces to be the staple of the space and have some fun, trendy, stylish items throughout,” she says.
“I want to give my customers the best I can and I respect their budget,” Michele says. “I want to give them a functional, yet beautiful space that they love.”
