The height of luxury is a healthy, happy home.

   

How does your home make you feel?

This might sound like a strange question, but there’s a proven, essential connection between our living spaces, state of mind, and quality of life.

The better-designed your home is for you, your life, and our inherent, human longing to connect with nature, the healthier and happier you’ll be. And the best part? You can see big changes with little shifts.

The way we live has changed.

The past decades have seen us spending more and more time at home, indoors, putting our living spaces on triple duty: they’re not only where we live…… they’re where we work and sometimes even where the kids go to school!  Our living spaces are trying to keep up with their ever-changing roles and responsibilities … but many of them just aren’t designed for it.

 

That’s where we come in.

At Studio YYC Interiors & Design, we REALLY love uniting design with wellness – wellness in the home, wellness where we work and play, wellness in the built environment.

Working on biophilic principles – which is a fancy way of saying that all our work is designed to feed our innate human need to connect with nature and each other – we create spaces that feel just as amazing as they look.

We meet you where you’re at, and work with you to create an interior that truly supports you and your family’s well being. So, whether you’re looking to update an old design, make a space function better, maximize natural light, or even alleviate airborne allergens, we can help.

I’m Michelle

and I’d love to help you feel happy and healthy in your home.

I’m a WELL Accredited Professional, a certified designer with a B.Sc. in Environmental Science, and a member of the Canada Green Building Council. I founded Studio YYC because there’s nothing that makes me feel better than seeing someone come home to a house that truly feels like them, and gives them the support they need to live their healthiest life.

If you’d like that too, let’s have a chat!

HOW I’ve helped my clients

Testimonials

What did I appreciate most about working with Michelle?

 

Number one: her remarkable patience! We have started and stopped our project too many times to count. Michelle keeps saying this is our family’s project and therefore our timeline.

Number two: her incredible vision. I don’t have much talent in this department. My husband and I talked a little bit about colors, style, etc. We had a loose vision about our end product that I was only lukewarm on. During our first visit, Michelle walked through our house asking me what I liked and didn’t like in our house, looked at colours, styles, etc. that we currently have. Then she went to work and sent me a series of vision boards. Wow! Quite a bit different from our original not-so-inspired vision and much much much better. We LOVE it. She heard us when we said we wanted storage and seating, but a warm, inviting, uncluttered, updated environment as well. Thanks Michelle.

Number three: Michelle’s attention to budget. Like many folks (I suspect), budget was top of mind for us. Michelle was able to source really beautiful products for us at a reasonable price. We really appreciated her awareness of our budget constraints.

Now that we've been in our house for eight months...

…we can really appreciate how well it was designed to meet our needs. There is everything we need, and nothing we don’t need.  It’s great! 

In particular, the double vanities in the bathrooms are fantastic in the mornings when kids are brushing their teeth to get off to school.  So many fewer fights!  We finally got the backyard sorted out and put in sod on the labour day weekend, so have been able to fully appreciate the mudroom too.  That extra space just makes it so much easier when the kids are coming and going!  And the kitchen is simply a joy to use and to be in.  Thanks for all of your work and insights! It really made our home just the way we wanted it.  

– Jennifer S.

Michelle came recommended by my realtor after working with her on some projects. Michelle then came for a consultation and she was able to understand my desired style very quickly. I most appreciated that she was able to find items at multiple different retailers to fit my space and style and form a cohesive vision.

Working with Michelle on the building process of our new, energy-efficient house was a great experience as she has a fabulous personality, listened to my ideas, and was quickly available if there were any problems.
