I’ve had the chance to talk to designers from coast to coast, but never from Atlanta, GA. With a great mix of a modern flair and southern charm, Michael has built a great interior design firm serving an impressive clientele. Michael and his team handle everything from initial design to implementation, and residential to commercial, designing some hip and cool spaces. They have had a lot of opportunities to work for clubs, bars, and restaurants, which has led into some interesting requests from homeowners.
Michael had an opportunity to be featured on a design show called Design Wars. He did level with me about how things are built behind the scenes. Not quite something he would do on a real project. The interesting reality is that it did not get him any new clients.
We talked about the importance of being published, and what the value can be for a designer. Michael shared how instrumental Pinterest and Houzz has been for their marketing efforts.
