Hi, I'm Michelle Santhanam, owner of Refresh Home Design. I began my creative journey at a young age, studying Visual Art and Music at a Performing Arts school where I grew up. Although I didn't know it then, studying the principles of art, and learning to value unique compositions, would later give me an intuitive sense of how to design beautiful interiors. After college I put my talents to work designing for friends and a few clients, but ultimately pursued a career in medicine. But a few years ago I drifted back to Interior Design because it is my true passion and my artform, and I can't stay away!
I believe that our homes should be highly personal and unique to us, and a place for fearless expression. Some people are content with the one-size-fits-all design we see everywhere, but I'm not one of them, and if you aren't either I'm glad you've found me! Your home should unapologetically tell the story of who you were, who you are and who you want to be...and you are not a copy!
As a Designer I want to help you "refresh" your environment and your life, and pull you into the future while respecting your past. I want your home to include items you cherish, collect and that hold meaning for and inspire you. If you want to push past what you see in your social media feed and create an interior design that's original, unexpected and unique to you, let me help!
