Happy New Year to you all! Can you believe we made it through 2021?
Our team is back from a long and restful holiday break and ready to get rolling on some exciting design projects. We’re grateful to be working with existing clients on second properties and new clients who we hope to form lasting relationships with.
As 2022 begins and you set your intentions for the year ahead, don’t forget to consider the projects around your home that you wish to tackle. If this pandemic has taught us anything it’s the importance of home. Comfortable surroundings make all the difference, especially now that our dwellings are handling a lot more than they used to.
In the last two years, our homes have become restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, schools and offices. Much like ourselves, our homes have learned to be flexible. Let us help make these transitions smoother for you. Our team has the skills and know-how to get the job done right – the first time! Here are 3 reasons why right now is the right time to hire an interior design firm.
1. Our access to experienced tradespeople.
How many times have you had to follow up to get a contractor out to see your job? How about that quote – did it come when it was promised? We’ve heard about these hurdles time and time again. You’re not alone; these headaches are common among homeowners. When working with Michelle Gage Interiors, we come to the table with a bevy of trusted tradespeople who give our projects priority. We feed a steady stream of business their way, making it advantageous for them to get back to us in a timely manner and keep us happy. Communication is KEY and we hold that skill in high regard. Not only are the artisans we’re bringing on site extremely talented, but they also run reputable businesses of their own and are always acting with the client’s best interest in mind. You read that right, in addition to having access to exclusive furnishings, we also have the best local trades to execute on everything we design!
2. Our time-saving techniques.
It takes a tremendous amount of time to design and execute any project – even more so if it isn’t your profession and zone of genius. We have a tried-and-true design process that allows us to take the burden off your shoulders and truly enjoy the experience. We pride ourselves in offering Full-Service Interior Design. We have the team in place to see your project through from concept to completion. Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you want to oversee all the nitty-gritty details that need to come together in order to bring the design vision to life. Our contractors know that we’re the point person for any questions or challenges, minimizing the daily disruptions to you. Long gone are the days of missed deliveries and moving your furniture up 4 flights of stairs!
3. Our access to insider information.
We’ve all fallen prey to the shipping and lead time issues heard ‘round the world. It’s no secret that the furniture and construction industry is in a vulnerable place – but don’t let that stop you from moving forward with your design dreams! Over these last two years, our team has found work-arounds and savvy solutions to keep the ball rolling on our clients’ décor or renovation projects. We have strong partnerships with industry representatives for every brand we carry. They are quick to reply to us, offering an extra level of customer service that you just don’t get from big box retailers. The truth is, even with longer lead times, your home project will be completed faster with Michelle Gage Interiors by your side!
We’re always on the hunt for new and exciting design projects. If your home is a good fit for our firm’s flair, get in touch with us TODAY! We delight in designing spaces that are a true reflection of the people who live inside them. Even better if those homeowners love wallpaper. 😉
We so look forward to helping your design dreams come to life.
What did this client have to say?
I worked with Michelle Gage Interiors for a year on a huge project: decorating half of the rooms in my house, along with three outdoor porches. Michelle is a dream come true. On top of being a top-notch designer with years of experience, she’s also organized, efficient, responsive, detail-oriented, professional, thoughtful, honest, and understanding. (It’s a perk that she’s also simply delightful!) I felt daunted by the task of furnishing a nearly empty, new-construction home while juggling a new job and two young kids. She broke down the process into discrete steps, always remained within budget, and worked quickly yet carefully to execute each design. She relieved me of so many headaches by coordinating the work of a million different vendors – from the paint and wallpaper crew to the carpet and window shade installers to the woodworker and upholsterer. I am thrilled with the results. I think my favorite thing about Michelle’s work is that she strikes the perfect balance between creating spaces that she knows will be gorgeous and suiting her client’s specific needs and tastes. I must have given her 1,000 requirements for the wallpaper selections in our house, and she found just the right style every time. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
