She plans each space with an eye for the principles and elements of design: scale and proportion, balance and flow, line and shape, texture, light, color, and pattern. Michelle uses her knowledge and experience to create interiors that are comfortable, elegant and functional.

FAmily focused

The cornerstone of Michelle Troxell’s design philosophy is creating practical spaces where families feel at home, centered, and surrounded by beauty. Family plays a strong role in everything Michelle does. In fact, Grace Thomas Designs derives its name from the middle names of Michelle’s two children. Michelle loves to help clients create an environment where their family can spend more time together and make happy memories. She knows your life is busy and she wants your home to be a beautiful sanctuary. And, her family focus extends to the family’s furry members. With a six pet household herself, Michelle considers every detail for exactly how families live.
