Interior Designer Michelle Gerson has a modern and eclectic approach to design. She has designed luxury homes for premier clients and savvy spaces for modern families. With a vast network of resources and a keen eye for style, Michelle has designed penthouses in New York City, estates in the Hamptons, mansions in New Jersey, bungalows in Westchester, historic homes in Connecticut, infamous Palm Beach Palaces, cool Miami bachelor pads and homes for the well to do in Nantucket, Boston, Chicago and London.

She works in tandem with some of the finest brands and creatives in the world. Andrew Friedman and Kevin Lichten of Lichten Architects, Ralph Pucci, Studio Van Den Akker, Dennis Miller, Artistic Tile and so many others.

The best way to balance style, comfort and functionality is to layer. I truly believe that in order to design a successful space, priorities need to be comfort and function. I then layer in the style with accessories, wall coverings and woodgrains. All these elements warm up and soften a space.

Michelle Gerson

Michelle has many wonderful recognizable characteristics. She has one of the best speaking voices ever. Her gravelly, breathy, lady-like gruff has a friendly undertone and is fondly memorable. Her petite frame is generally fashioned in a cool, chill-lax, ensemble of wearable designer threads. She has a one-of-a-kind accessory that shines bright like a diamond and is occasionally on hand at events. Her super cool 7-year-old son.

                                    VIRGO -You are clever, conscientious and good at working behind the scenes – an asset in any work environment. Your high expectations mean that you tend to get the best out of others – as well as yourself. You don’t mind working behind the scenes – in fact, you frequently prefer to do so, just so long as you get the credit for your achievements.

                                              The best lesson my parents taught me is “Always give. The one thing no one can ever take away from you is what you give.”
