Elsie de Wolfe, a 19th-century interior designer said: "I am going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life.”
Whether your decor is modern farmhouse, traditional, mid-century modern, or sticky fingerprint chic, the beauty we make cannot be found at home decor stores. For me, beauty is found in families gathered around a table in a home that tells their story. Our greatest desire is to come alongside you to create a comfortable, beautiful, and unique space that reflects your unique and beautiful story. A home that welcomes strangers and loved ones alike. A place where all feel welcomed and loved.

Designer and Owner
Michelle began Spring and Thyme to help clients make their house into a home by styling it to reflect their unique experiences and families. As her business grew, clients returned asking her to design whole spaces, and manage renovations. Although her ultimate joy remains staging a room and surprising clients in a big reveal, large scale projects are an exciting challenge. Michelle carefully listens and designs spaces for all budgets.

Tricia is an independent interior designer. Her specialty is space planning--maximizing space usage and balancing beauty with comfort. As for style, her personal favorite is a combo of old with new. And her favorite room in her house? Her living room. It’s her calm retreat in the middle of chaos. (There’s lots of chaos in a house with a husband and four kids—wouldn’t you want a room that makes you happy, too?) With her extensive background and education in both residential and commercial design, Tricia is an awesome designer, and you’ll love working with her.
Laura is a local artisan who designs home decor and gifts carried in our shop. She loves those small personal touches that inspire women and brighten up the home. Her current line includes hand-painted signs, hand-poured soy candles, and custom and restored furniture. And, of course, whatever else occurs to her wonderfully creative mind!
Karen is our organizer and our official handywoman. She paints, hangs wall art, mirrors and patiently holds pictures as Michelle has her move them inch by inch to find the right position. We contract with Karen through her incredible business Karen's Divine Order where she helps transform homes from chaos to peace.
