About


I'm Michaela, and I'm thrilled you've found yourself in my little corner of the web!

I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California. I've always had a passion for interior design, as my mom used to find me building floor plans out of jenga blocks all over the carpet of my bedroom.  I have fond memories of laying on my Minnie Mouse bedding dreaming up my future home, changing my outfits four times a day, drawing house plans on the children's menus at restaurants instead of doing the word searches, and constantly begging my parents to allow me to apply for Trading Spaces at age ten.  My passion for design has truly always been apart of my life!

I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in interior design from Seattle Pacific University and my AA degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Design and MerchandisingStudying interiors in college fueled my passion to serve people through all avenues of design.  I feel so blessed to be doing what I love for the rest of my life! It was in college, in fact, that my dad suggested I start a blog to chronicle my time through design school and to (hopefully) cure me of my home-sickness! I had no idea what a blog was, so I began reading other blogs. Yes, design blogs did exist! After a couple months of reading, I started writing my own. Michaela Noelle Designs began back in 2010 in my college apartment. You can read more about my story here.


After college, I moved back to California and started my design business, while simultaneously working for another interior designer. In September of 2013, I flew to Michigan to visit a friend who just had a baby. While there, my friend ended up introducing me to a cute guy (who is now my husband). In May of 2014, I moved from California to Michigan to be near my boyfriend at the time. In December 2015, we got engaged and we were married on September 18th, 2016! Life together is so sweet. We are opposites (he's a computer engineer and I'm a designer), but I think God uses our differences to better love each other and Him.


My husband and I live in Michigan in our first apartment together, along with our newest addition to the family, an Australian Labradoodle named Lincoln. We adore him oh-so-much! We enjoy cooking our subscription box dinners together, going on walks, going mini golfing in the summer and bowling in the winter as date nights, trying delicious restaurants down town, visiting California for vacations, watching movies, working in the youth group together at our church, and dessert. Namely, the Trader Joe's cookie ice cream sandwiches ;)

 I serve West Michigan with in home design services and beyond, with e-design services. For more information on my design services, you can head to my website.



I'm so glad you're here!
xoxo
Michaela
