Babe Behind the Blog: Michelle at Michelle Jane Designs




Hi all Amber's lovers, I am Michelle from M J. Designs. I'm a full time Mummy, an interior and textile designer and a blogger, well I'm trying to be but the full time Mummy thing keeps getting in the way, haha. Amber asked me to post on her hugely successful blog. I’m a little scared, shocked and overwhelmed that she asked me because I haven’t been a blogger for very long and there has already been some fine 'babes behind the blog', thank you Mrs Lewis for letting me be one! 

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE?

I started a blog because I would like to showcase my textile designs and you never know, maybe sell some fabrics along the way. Also, post the odd interior design projects I work on. I’ve been an interior designer since 1998 gulp! I got my first job back in little old London just after leaving University with a Fashion/Textile Bachelors Degree specializing in Textiles. In 2004 the interior design lead me to Los Angeles and I never looked back, well I sort of did as I’ve had a few London based projects now and then, which is amazing. I got to work for some amazing firms in Los Angeles and for some amazing clients! But, Textile design is my passion and I guess another reason that my blog gets pushed to the side, I just want to design pretty patterns all day, oh, and be Mummy of course.


My Textiles have always influenced my interior design style
but I always go with what the clients wants, their style and vibe for their home, office or business. So my style is as diverse as my clients.

My most recent project was a Frozen Yogurt Store in Calabasas CA. These were old clients of mine and I was so excited to work for them again. Luckily, they were very cool when my toddler was at some of our meetings.
