Interior Design Testimonials

Hear what some of her clients have to say:

Excellent Service and client satisfaction are extremely important to Michelle Yorke Interior Design.

quotation-marksAfter using Michelle on a few smaller projects in our Bellevue home, we hired her for our new home design. This experience has exceeded any and all hopes, dreams and expectations. I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone so equally organized and creative. The materials she brought, the extra little something around our home, the fabrics, tiles, and flooring – all outstanding. She turned what was a grueling process into something absolutely enjoyable. Thank you, Michelle!

quotation-marksMichelle is one of the most professional people I have ever worked with.

As the owner of new construction, with very definite ideas of how I wanted my finished house to look, Michelle managed to capture my dream. During construction I did not live in Washington so I had to rely on Michelle to be my eyes and ears on the construction site. Michelle was well-respected by everyone on the job site and my contractor, who had never met her until I hired her. He has her working on his house now!

Michelle did all the research for me – for everything. For example, my wallpaper ideas took months of research, literally, and she managed to find what I was looking for.

I traveled to Seattle approximately once a month to review design ideas, projects and the construction. Michelle provided an itinerary that was full and timely. She contacted all the vendors to set up appointments and did all the research for what I want before I get there. After my visit, she sent detailed emails with photos, numbers, costs and reviews of everything that was decided on my visit.

I could go on for a very long time about Michelle Yorke. Simply put, I could not have done this project without her. She kept to budgets and timelines. I am not exaggerating when I say that the services that Michelle Yorke Interior Design provided is the best value for money, especially as she has really helped me save money.

I do not hesitate to recommend her services, nor does my contractor!

quotation-marksMichelle Yorke’s abilities to give us outstanding quality design assistance were incredible. We had a long distance renovation 4 states away. We had only a few days to accomplish many goals on our visits to Washington. She made every moment count from meeting us at different businesses to choose all we needed, to keeping copious notes about our selections. Those notes were our salvation when our renovation went from months to well over a year because of a variety of setbacks.

When a vendor had a question about our selection, Michelle had the answer in minutes! She also was very diplomatic when my husband and I did not agree on a choice. She was tremendous at remaining neutral and pointing out pros and cons. When we were out of town, Michelle would check on the work that was being done to give us updates and also to ensure the quality of the workmanship. We highly recommend Michelle Yorke without any reservations.

quotation-marksI highly recommend Michelle Yorke! She transformed our plain room into an amazing media room, which included space planning, cabinet design, lighting, and furniture and product selection. After spending some time in our home and asking all the right questions, she perfectly captured our style while helping us integrate some new colors that I wouldn’t have thought of. She is easy to talk to, listens and cares about the finished product. You can tell she loves what she does. I will be hiring her again soon to do another room!

quotation-marksI really need to thank Michelle for pulling my home together. My home now makes the statement I was trying to achieve. Michelle selected fabric and trimmings which I loved just based on a few conversations and a quick look at my existing furniture. As a busy mom of a newborn and toddlers taking time out to decorate was something I really wanted to do but just couldn’t seem to fit it all in. Michelle was my solution! Michelle also selected just the right accessories and wall hanging which took out a lot of the guess work and hit and miss purchases I may have had for those spaces. I Thank Michelle for helping me LOVE my home!

quotation-marksI hired Michelle to help me update my home furnishings in my living room, dining room, and master bedroom. She listened patiently to me exploding with ideas and uncertainty about what I wanted and came back with designs and options that fit my budget. She had reputable, high quality contractors for the construction and installation of a custom headboard, window treatments and drapes, furniture installation, etc. Her pricing was up front and reasonable; there were no surprises. She is very easy to work with and wants you to have exactly what YOU want.

I absolutely LOVE my new rooms!!! I still walk around and just stare at it all with a big smile on my face. My friends that have seen it agree and say it is gorgeous, calming, and elegant and makes the rooms look bigger. I can’t say enough good things about her talent and attention to detail and calm demeanor. She was there every step of the way and pulled it all together. I highly recommend her!

quotation-marksWorking with Michelle is wonderful – She helped turn our house into “our home”!

Her passion for her work shows in all she does.

quotation-marksWe have had the pleasure of working with Michelle Yorke Interior Design on multiple projects. On our most recent project, she absolutely knocked it out of the park. The transformation from a paint standpoint was daring in the sense that is was irreversible. The concept was bold and eloquent. All the stained millwork was to be painted with a black lacquer and the stained kitchen cabinets painted and highlighted with a black glaze outline. In the end the pictures speak for the themselves. She was able to take an already beautiful home and make it something the neighbors will wish they had done.

quotation-marksI have used Michelle Yorke on two of my homes and absolutely love the results! On the second home we did everything from the drywall in, so Michelle’s design was instrumental every aspect of the construction process, from countertops and tile, to paint colors and fabrics.

Michelle has impeccable taste and style and she immediately learned my tastes and was able to point me in the right direction every time. When she would bring me samples and fabrics I would love every one!

Michelle is also very professional and friendly, while providing excellent service and staying within my budget. I highly recommend Michelle Yorke Interior Design.

quotation-marksI have hired Ms. Yorke several times to help me remodel/design rooms in our 100 year old home. Michelle did an excellent job assessing not only what was needed for the designing & remodel, but also what my preferences were and the budget I wanted to work within.

Michelle was very timely and very responsive to all my questions. The results of her recommendations, feedback and ideas are wonderful!! I get compliments on the bathrooms and kitchen frequently. And most important, I love the way the rooms look. I would highly recommend Ms. Yorke and will hire her for our future remodeling/design needs.
