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 started Refresh Home Design because I became frustrated by all the one-size-fits-all interiors I was seeing out there, particularly on social media and home makeover shows. I have always believed that our homes should be highly personal and unique to us. You are not your neighbor, best friend or that guy from TikTok, so why should your home look like theirs? 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 Instagram feed and create an interior design that's original, unexpected and unique to you, let me help!
