Dreams really do come true! Michele, of House of Araquette, helped create a living room that is magazine worthy! She took the time from our first meeting to listen to what I liked and wanted out of the new space and began to put the ideas together to create amazing vision. It was a collaboration from the start. She wanted to know what I liked and didn’t like and it was fun to share ideas back and forth to create this beautiful space. She was always conscious of my budget and we worked together to find creative ways to save money and splurge when necessary. One of the most central aspects of House of Araquette is the importance of creating a space that YOU love, not a space that is the popular style at the moment. Michele was constantly asking me if this piece made me happy - that was the mantra. My loving the space was the driving force. I could not recommend House of Araquette highly enough! Enjoy the process and being happy in your space.
I highly recommend Michele to anyone looking to make their house a home. We have been working with Michele for several years; her staging helped us sell our previous home in one day! She is now helping us with our new home and we couldn’t be happier. We have worked with several designers over the years; never has anyone included every family members needs and preferences into the overall plan as Michele has. She and her design assistant are a joy!
Michele is very creative and helped us re-imagine our small space into what is now cozy, functional, and so pretty. She was very open with her ideas and I truly appreciated how budget conscious she was. We never thought we would be able to afford a designer, but Michele’s resourcefulness and creativity made it possible. We cannot thank her enough.
Thank you for all your help! You were really wonderful to work with. Who knew I liked transitional/rustic furniture? All this time I thought I was a modern guy. LOL! I absolutely love coming home to my new home. You made everything look amazing (even my older furniture looks good now) and I really appreciate the time you took helping me find my style.
