Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrea Michaelson.
Andrea, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My education is architecture and environmental design. I started working in commercial design, and slowly ended up in residential design. I do a lot of kitchen and bathroom remodels currently. I have worked in the shoe business doing design and distribution, and spent many years traveling abroad, and love the arts, food, and fashion. I am passionate about food, and cooking, and would love to do restaurant design. I have also spent many years as a visual arts consultant for early childhood education, and am passionate about art education.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Every job, during construction is challenging. Remodels, mostly, as we can never be prepared for everything we’re going to uncover. All obstacles, lead to further investigation, which inevitably, leads to a more unusual and surprising result, the issues make us search harder for creative solutions, making the end result more interesting.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Andrea Michaelson Design – what should we know?
I do primarily high end residential design, to include design/build as well. Most of my private clientele does repeated jobs with my firm and that established trust is of the most value. That is when I am able to do my most creative and best work. I prefer to do jobs where I have creative freedom over the back ground, so not just the decor, but the space itself, the finishes, the envelope. The space should be just as spectacular empty, and everything added, enhances it even more. The furniture and details, are an expression of the clients’ dreams, and desires, filtered through my lens.
