Michelle understands the importance of making a home your own and inspires clients to go beyond the conventional to create a home that is truly a reflection of them. Since graduating from The International Academy of Design in 1991, she has acquired experience in retail design companies - from paint & decor through high end furniture and custom drapery. In 2011 she was given the opportunity to teach Materials & Finishes at Durham College and became a partner in a home renovation and design company, expanding her range to provide full service home renovations. In 2013 she added teaching History of Furniture at Durham College, and in 2014 partnered with Susan Carducci to open 2Co.Design Build. Michelle loves the diversity that each new project brings and having the opportunity to create beautiful homes.
