Considered an interior design tastemaker and one of Hollywood’s top interior designers, she put her stamp on the homes of Hollywood A-Listers, top executives of Silicon Valley, and Manhattan philanthropists.
Born in Los Angeles, California, Michelle’s penchant for the craft was almost immediately apparent. Some of her fondest childhood memories were of her mother chauffeuring her about the neighborhoods to take in the endless array of visually arresting homes. As a budding young designer, Michelle frequently took pleasure in envisioning and fashioning her very own custom designed forts.
Known for her ability to read a client’s taste and style, she creates a home that reflects the client’s personality, while maintaining a sense of grace, elegance and glamour.
“As an interior designer I feel that a home should personify the people who live within. Everyone has a personality; quirks, loves, hates – and their own sense of aesthetic. It’s my job to successfully identify who the homeowner really is and then accurately represent their personality therein”. It’s Michelle’s intention that the outcome of her efforts say of her client, loudly and very clearly, “This is who I am!” – be it gleefully glamorous, classically conservative, or chic chinoiserie.
Michelle’s signature style is a mingling of the modern and vintage. If asked of her inspiration, Michelle freely admits to her bent for the Federal Period, her fondness for Early American décor, and her sincere respect for the French influence on the art of design. Michelle yet remains keenly aware of the contemporary.
In her opinion, “a house should be a symphony of notes creating an entire emotional response that is at once beautiful and heartfelt”.
As one of the nation’s most sought-after interior designers, Michelle Workman has designed high-end residential and commercial spaces from West Coast to East Coast, to most recently in the South. Michelle possesses an esteemed and influential client roster, from the Hollywood elite such as Jennifer Lopez, John Travolta & Kelly Preston and Kirstie Alley, to Silicon Valley executives and entrepreneurs, to individual homeowners who desire elegantly glamorous trend-setting design.
