Michelle opened her namesake firm in 2008, fulfilling a lifelong love of design. Starting with small projects while still in school, Michelle has grown her design business through her talent, eye for beauty, and commitment to her clients.

She is also a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association and the Interior Design Society. She has volunteered her time with Habitat for Humanity both in home building as well as by designing a design selections process for Habitat clients, and she is active in the local Frisco Arts community.

Michelle Cowling, owner of Michelle’s Interiors, works in design looks tailored to each individual client. Her background as a professional counselor enables her to hear her clients’ wishes in a unique way, translating that into a style that fits their individual needs and personality. One of the most important things to Michelle in her design work is establishing a good working relationship with each client – communicating things clearly and thoroughly and developing a special rapport through each project she takes on. While the look of her projects varies depending on the client, her own personal style tends toward the Transitional: light, airy rooms, clean lines, soft colors, an emphasis on natural materials, and an overall soothing palette.
With each project, Michelle also utilizes her skills in AutoCAD and Chief Architect, creating 3D models of the space so the client can see what things will look like before making decisions. Her Associates degree in Interior Design, received in 2011, included an emphasis in sustainable design principles, so Michelle enjoys working aspects of green design into her projects as well.
Michelle is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers as well as the Interior Design Society and the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
