From the Stacks: Real and Personal

Some designers say they don't have a signature look but often they do. In this case, designer Michelle Nussbaumer proved the opposite and created a design, not with her signature look, but one that reflects the homeowners beautifully. When this story was published in Jan/Feb 2006, homeowner and then DHome Editor Christine Allison penned the story herself and captured it best with these remarks, "Thus, on the face of it, it might have seemed incongruous, even daft, that we would have turned for guidance to Michelle Nussbaumer...Nussbaumer is as theatrical as we are not...But the truth was, we were due for a little glamour. And Nussbaumer figured us out in our first meeting."

This home is one of my all time favorites. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Have a nice evening.

As a Dallas girl, I really love this. I think everyone can use a little glamour in their life. And MN knows how to deliver!

I agree. No matter what a designer always leave her mark. That is to say that her works are original not copied.

Love this spot. Have you visited her store when you've been in Dallas? Next time you come, want to go and perhaps grab a bite together afterwards?

I have always loved Michelle's design work and these photos are wonderful. Almost 20 years ago we were dealers at the same antique shop in Dallas! She's a lovely person. Her shop in the design district is wonderful- she's always had the gift.
