I hired Michael and his staff (ie.Stacy,) to provide consultation on design choices I was making for my new home. Their design style was consistent with mine, and I was thrilled to have their help. They helped me make construction, design, and purchasing decisions, and saved me from making major mistakes. The tradespeople they hired were wonderful, and I found everyone's rates to be very reasonable. What's more, they were fun to work with. I had never worked with a decorator before and didn't know exactly what to expect. I was suprised that they did not impose their ideas and preferences on me, and were respectful of my opinions. In fact, I learned alot from them. I would not hesitate to use them again, or to recommend them to anyone.
