Michelle Doubet, Doubet Interiors
Every home tells a story about the people living in it. As a little girl, the first 10 years of my life were spent in a very poor neighborhood – my bed was a small, foam mattress on the floor of my grandparents’ room. Fast-forward to today as an owner of an Interior Design Studio in Cypress, Texas, it was that experience that left a strong imprint in my mind about how important it is to create a life you love as well as have a space that reflects who you are. My entire life has been a training ground for creating bliss right in the middle of the chaos so even if you are surrounded by toys, dogs and smelly shoes, I can help you!
My signature style is combining modern with timeless elements as well as using color and texture to create an interesting story. I’m drawn to exploring movement in natural stones with pops of metallics on walls, hardware or lighting. My biggest inspirations are nature and swanky hotel lounges.
From remodels, new builds, makeovers and commercial spaces, Doubet Interiors is just a phone call away.
