MICHELLE SLOVAK

Why use a designer?
Why use a doctor?  If you need a professional, you go to a professional

Why shop the trade?
For quality and, at the top of the list, custom choices that you wont find on your own…

What is your most valued design tip?
Don’t be afraid to use color.

What makes your style unique?
My passion is color and I love working with it.  Even neutrals can be exciting!

Who is your design icon and why?

Who is your favorite fashion designer?
Elie Tahari—classic and beautifu;

What is your ideal getaway/escape?
Paris…why oh why do I love Paris…

Name three things you cannot live without:
