Michelle Ford, owner & principal designer
Michelle's interior design career began in a slightly unconventional way. After completing a design project for a family member in 2000 a part-time design business developed. A few years later after careful consideration, she left a long term career in insurance to complete an interior design degree and fully focus efforts in the design field. Michelle is currently an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers and serves on the local board of directors. Whether designing a residential or commercial project, her primary focus is creating highly personalized spaces based on each clients vision, lifestyle and functional needs. The Kansas City chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers has awarded Michelle for her work in the commercial and/or residential categories in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
