Michelle is extremely detail-oriented and meticulous in her work which is exactly what you want when you're hiring someone to design and oversee a complete transformation like she accomplished. She was pleasant, professional and lovely to work with. I love my new room! I really couldn't have done it without her. I have gotten so many compliments from people who have been to my home or seen the pictures (especially the before and after). "It looks like a page in a magazine!" is a frequent comment. Thank you Michelle!

I worked with Michelle providing interior shutters for her customer. Michelle was extremely professional and wonderful to work with. Her style and grace helps her excel at job. Michelle's finished product was terrific. Another happy customer in the books! Nothing better than that. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Michelle is such a delight to work with. Her work is just as refreshing as her presence. When you're looking for something cozy but stylish, she has a way of keeping everything cohesive and livable.

"In a word, AMAZING! We have spent close to a year collaborating with Michelle on the interior design of every room in our new house, along with our outdoor space too. The experience was incredible! Michelle's vision and creativity are complemented by her meticulous attention to detail and adherence to budget. Michelle literally has boundless ideas, yet what we truly love the most is that our home is the perfect relection of "us". She is extremely skilled at presenting design options, then allowing our preferences to dictate choices. She even incorporated some sentimental pieces into several rooms that allowed us to put our unique stamp on those spaces. Keeping our home eclectic in that way was very important to us - Michelle was instrumental in making that a reality, while also creating a fresh, beachy, feel for us.

In addition to maintaining unparalleled professionalism, Michelle is personally invested in her work and it shows. Her devotion was evident in every aspect of her interaction with us and our family. When working on our kids' rooms, she took the time to meet with them individually to get a true feel for their personalities and preferences - as a result, their rooms are all literally spot on!

Michelle and her husband (Jim at Straight Edge Landscape & Lawn, Inc.) also created our outdoor landscape and patio design. They designed a multi tiered patio with a built-in fire pit that is an absolute oasis. The stone work is gorgeous and our backyard is just stunning. They also conceptualized the unique scheme for planting trees, shrubs and flowers, which is beautiful.

I give Michelle not only my strongest endorsement, but also an abundance of gratitude for helping to make our home perfect.

Michelle designed and planted the area around our pool. This task was challenging, due to lots of factors, but Michelle completed it with professionalism and even finished it quickly, in time for a large party we were having. The area looks great, and I have had many compliments about how nice it looks! I would definitely recommend Summerland Homes to anyone looking for quality, professional service.

I hired Summerland Homes & Gardens to help me stage my home for sale. They provided me written estimates and samples for wall colors and great suggestions for furniture placement. They showed up on time for all appointments and were very professional throughout the process.

I would strongly recommend Summerland Homes and Gardens. Michelle designed a beautiful office for my entire family. Not only was the space beautiful, but it was functional. She helped design the space on a budget; offering different choices at different price points. I was happy with the result and the experience.

Michelle’s expertise was invaluable in my bathroom renovation. I was overwhelmed by the logistics of a large renovation, but Michelle stepped in and made everything come together. Her attention to detail – and to making sure she was designing a room that I would love- was just amazing. I appreciated her tact in gently persuading me to consider style options I would not have otherwise- saving me from making poor choices. She coordinated with the supply house, the contractor, the counter guys, everyone! So all I had to do was give my OK to specific color and fabric choices that she presented to me. When the morning light comes in through the windows, my bathroom is stunning!
