Trending For 2021: Adaptable Homes

Which 2020 buzzword are you ready to say goodbye to? For us, it’s “uncertain times.” Here at Michelle Gage Interiors, we’re embracing “adaptability” for 2021. In the past year, we have all had to adapt in ways we never imagined and our homes have carried the brunt of these burdens.

As we dream up designs for new and existing clients, we’re focused on maximizing the functionality of our client’s homes while maintaining the highest levels of style and quality. Our 2021 calendar is quickly booking up with new projects and we’d love to help you transform existing spaces into your ideal home office, gym, classroom or whatever else your new normal requires. We’re already at 40% capacity for the new year and want to ensure that our existing clients get top priority going forward. As a bespoke interior design firm, you are the lifeblood of our business and we can think of no better way to show our gratitude than by assisting you in this tricky transition to a new year of “uncertainty.”

We can’t wait to share some highly adaptable spaces that are currently in the works, including a parlor room for family game nights and cozy reading, as well as a home office bursting with color, creativity, spunk and space to break a sweat in style.


The more time we spend indoors, the stronger the desire to bring the outdoors in becomes. We’re predicting lots of light filled sunrooms like our very own which was a spontaneous quarantine-project this past spring. It has certainly helped us bridge the gap between outdoors and staying safely at home.
