Michelle wanted a head start learning design so in her Junior and Senior year of high school she started working with a firm in Miami Shores. Gaining exposure on how to mix textures, colors, and how to create custom furniture pieces. This was a great experience and confirmed that this was truly what she wanted to study. Michelle went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from Miami International University of Art and Design.
Michelle began practicing Interior Design professionally in 2004, working under a large Miami-based hospitality firm that handled interior design for Sandals and Beaches resorts. In a 4-1/2 year span she was promoted to Senior designer and became responsible for all renovation and design at Beaches, Turks and Caicos. With a goal to expand her design portfolio and focus on residential projects, Michelle founded Interiors by Michelle Harrington, L.L.C. in 2010, a full-service residential design firm.
Michelle’s design style leans towards the more contemporary/modern look, but always in line with what her clients dream of.
“I know my job is done, when a client walks into their home and all they can say is wow!”
