"Ms. Durpetti was respectful of my time, prompt when visiting me at my home, and understanding of my budget requirements. She was intuitive in assessing my personal style, presenting me with options for colors and fabrics that worked with what I thought I wanted in addition to other ideas that would be compatible. Ms. Durpetti listened carefully and offered suggestions that matched my needs, not hers. She kept me inspired to move ahead even during the busy holidays.
My project was a small bedroom which turned out to be perfect for my "do-it-yourself" lifestyle. However the designer's flair picked up on small details to upgrade that made a big overall impact.
I anticipate using Durpetti Interiors again in the near future."

"I have seen first hand the amazing things that Michelle can create to bring in that perfect atmosphere. I love how she can pull together the many pieces of a room and make it all fit-the fabrics, the furniture, the accessories, the colors. She is easy to work with and really listens to what I am wanting . She is organized, considerate and very personable! She coordinates the details and all people involved very smoothly. Working with Michelle, it seems like her design and decorating ideas, work and end product just flow out as an extention of who she is. She is a delight to work with!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle for the past few months. First of all I would like to say how easy she is to work with. The designs that I have seen and the projects that I have worked on with her are truly an inspiration. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any interior design work and look forward to working with her on many more projects."

"I would like to express the most fabulous, fulfilling & enjoyable experience working with Michelle Durpetti. Not only did Michelle peg my style instantly, she then turned my 1 BR condo into a gorgeous, romantic & inviting home. When I enter my foyer, by myself or with guests, the creative style receives comfort, warmth & my personality. Michelle has the ability to bring your personal style out from photographs, memoirs, color, print & textures. Michelle even used my cowboy boots to decorate!
Michelle is completely "hands-on". She stained, reupholstered & made many projects her own.
This was my first time using an interior decorator and I hit the jackpot. Michelle remained within my budget, is punctual and works at a swift pace. I would highly recommend this talented gem to anybody!
Many thanks to Michelle Durpetti Interiors for placing a smile on my face each time I open my front door!"
