"My work is to discover your world and give my heart to create a space that inspires you"  -Michele Townley

Design has always been a passion for me. Being the daughter of an engineer, I was fortunate in learning the principles of design. In 2000, I graduated from LTU University and became a Certified Interior Designer as well as certification of the California Building Codes & Regulations. My dreams became my reality; I started my own design business with many wonderful projects, from the simple to the complex, from one room

makeovers to complete remodels.The projects are all inclusive: structural modifications, specifications of building materials, fixtures, appliances, floor coverings, fabrics, furniture and the finishing touches or “fluff” as some suggest.

Interior Motives is a complete design firm that will meet all your expectations in creating your vision.

 

What sets Interior Motives apart from other residential design firms is that I listen to the needs and desires of my clients. Utilizing education and experience, I will create an environment that inspires you. With my attention to scale, texture, color, and detail your home will become a space that you love to live in plus being admired by all who enter.  I value my client's needs and as a “home body” myself, I understand what it means to have a house that is “your personal haven”.

 

I always try to incorporate the yin and yang of a space. There is much to be said for listening versus talking and telling clients what is needed. My inspiration stems from you— tell me all about you and your lifestyle— it is from this I learn what really drives you, which fuels my design fire to create your dream. Our consultation meeting is for my listening and understanding what you desire. After hearing what you want, I will begin to envision what your home will need for your perfect environment. We will then discuss various design concepts.

At Interior Motives, we pride ourselves in staying on budget, staying on task and meeting deadlines. I am grateful and proud to say that the vendors which are referred are among the best in their field. It is the work they complete for my clients that builds the foundation of Interior Motives, a design firm built on integrity.
