Exceptionally Efficient and Deliberate
First time working with Michelle Nettles and what a pleasure! Exceptionally efficient and deliberate, but never pushy– always keeping us ‘in the know’ and making sure that we, as well as the client were well informed and that all went smoothly. As high-end installers, we have worked with many designers over the past 25 plus years–some very good and some so-so, with Michelle definitely being on the upper end of the scale. A most enjoyable work ethic, hopefully one that will be repeated with our company soon. Thank you, Michelle!
An Amazing Resource
Michelle is an amazing resource. From starting design concept to product selection, Michelle and team did an extraordinary job helping to turn our 1970s home into a showplace that was completely livable and an extension of me and my family. Michelle’s unique skill set of engineering and design skills helps her to master most any home challenge. Also, she is a real pleasure to work with and keeps budget in mind as well. I hope that I have the opportunity to work with her on my next project!

Satisfaction is the Ultimate Concern
Working with Michelle and Becca with MJN & Associates Interiors has been a true pleasure. Michelle is the ultimate professional, being honest, and up-front about the process for completing the interior design of our new home. She took the time to ask questions and get to know my preferences, which enabled her to very skillfully narrow down the countless options available in fabrics, furnishings, rugs, etc. to a manageable number of choices. Michelle and Becca took what would have been very overwhelming for someone like me (who previously had no experience with the world of professional interior design), and made it a fun and simplified process. Michelle was not overbearing or pushy with her guidance and recommendations- she presented options with her professional expertise to help me make the final choices; all recommendations she made were spot-on, and led to achieving the comfortable, warm, and welcoming environment that I originally wanted in our new home. Customer satisfaction is MJN & Associates’ ultimate concern, and I wholeheartedly recommend them! Thank you Michelle and Becca!!

The Rooms Are Absolutely Beautiful
My husband found MJN & Associated while looking on Houzz and I’m so glad he did! Michelle designed our dining room, office and family room – from the furnishings to the paint colors, to the window treatments and area rugs. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and I’ve received many compliments. Working with Michelle was wonderful and I highly recommend her!
We Are Overjoyed
I reached out to Michelle when I was moving to the area because I knew I needed help and liked her work I saw on Houzz. I was so pleased that I did. She listened to what my husband and I wanted, was very conscious of our budget and style, and was honest and helpful. Additionally and very importantly, she was not pushy at all. We are overjoyed with what she helped us with. We highly recommend her and will definitely be seeking her help in the future.

I Could Not Be Happier
I wandered into the realm of interior decorating knowing absolutely nothing. I wasn’t even really sure where to start. Fortunately, I stumbled across Michelle and Becca through Houzz and I could not be happier. Michelle and Becca are consummate professionals. They do a great job of communicating with you to determine your wants and needs. They show up on time for appointments and do not waste your time. Michelle has extensive knowledge of interior design and she does a wonderful job of presenting her ideas to you. As the project moved forward Michelle advised me of time frames for completion at each stage. Cost of the project was explained via proposals and Michelle was always ready to modify something if it didn’t fit the budget. Now that the project is completed, I am extremely pleased. Michelle and Becca helped to transform my new beach home into the paradise I have always wanted. Thank you!

Far Exceeded My Expectations
“Words cannot express how pleased I am with the professional services rendered by Michelle and her staff in bringing my vision for my new home to reality. Michelle was patient with all my questions, listened to what my desires were, and far exceeded my expectations of how my project would be handled and come to fruition. She is easy to work with and has a wonderfully warm personality which made my design process fun. She helped me marry my color choices with fabrics and furniture, which I was having extreme difficulty doing on my own. She was professional and prompt and her work was of the utmost quality. Everything was delivered on time, exactly when she said, and she handled every detail. From the hanging of window treatments and pictures, to furniture delivery and placement, she was in my home and took charge of the entire process. I didn’t have to do a thing but watch my home unfold. It is a wonderful feeling to come home at night to my beautiful home that Michelle helped to create. Kudos to this incredible designer and her team of professionals!”
“MJN & Associates, headed by Michelle Nettles is one of the best Interior Design companies in the Hampton Roads area! Michelle was very intuitive, knowing what questions to ask and suggestions to make when I was struggling to figure out how to pull a room and idea together. She truly listens, comes up with suggestions, all the while keeping your budget in mind. Her work ethic is above reproach and she delivered an all around stress free and beautiful experience. I work in the real estate industry and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to friend and clients!!”

A Lovely Experience
“We had a lovely experience working with Michelle at MJN & Associates Interiors. After living in our home for a few years, we had a few areas we just needed to finish. Michelle helped us select some custom window treatments for our kitchen, as well as several new pieces of furniture for our kitchen and master bedroom. She did a great job of incorporating some fresh, new additions into our existing color scheme and decor, and she made the process easy and efficient during a busy time of year (work-wise) for us. Our house finally feels finished (for now, anyway)! We highly recommend Michelle and her team and hope to work with her again.”
Went Above and Beyond
“Michelle was awesome to work with, truly loves what she does and runs a top-notch business! Having just moved back to coastal VA last July after having lived in CO for almost 9 years, we had many challenges to overcome (besides the heat and humidity!) to make our new home livable and a reflection of our taste. First, our new “used” home had a great layout and many special qualities, but was done in a completely different aesthetic than what we wanted and needed some updates as well. Second, having sold all our furniture with our old home we had no comfortable aesthetically pleasing furniture. And lastly, we were stuck in “rustic mountain style aesthetics” mindset though we knew we wanted a home with a “colorful tropical coastal vibe” but had no idea how to achieve that—Michelle really helped us hone in on the look and feel we were wanting while also helping us stay well within our budget! From her initial survey, to in-home consultations, on-line collaborations, emails, texts, and phone calls, Michelle was always available and helped us come to a wonderful design plan to furnish, update and decorate our large open concept living/dining/kitchen! Michelle went above and beyond even delivering various furniture pieces as soon as they arrived vice waiting for the whole order, trying to help us get our home feeling like a home! Now, our home looks beautiful and inviting and is exactly what we wanted! We really enjoyed working with Michelle and highly recommend her and MJN & Associates Interiors!”
Extremely High Standards
“We purchased a new home in East Beach and very quickly realized we needed a professional to help us achieve our goals. While we knew that we wanted our new home to be simple, warm, inviting and elegant, we weren’t sure how to get there…especially given some quirky room configurations. We feel so lucky to have found Michelle and MJN & Associates!! Right from the start, we were very impressed with her extremely high standards of professionalism and knowledge. This project first started small, but once she completed my husband’s space… and we were both so blown away, we decided to have her work her magic on the rest of the house. She was always timely, conscientious of our budget, and always produced high quality products. She made the process extremely smooth and simple. The end result is fabulous!!”
Melissa Rice Schwitters
“MJN, Michelle, was brought into my home to replace/update all window and sliding door coverings and bedding for the MBR. We agreed on options/pricing and Michelle and her team did a wonderful job. She offered options for wall paint throughout my home which coordinated nicely and supplied two side chairs for my LR. I was completely pleased with this engagement.”

The Change is Stunning
You are a great representative for MJN & Associates Interiors.
We loved working with you. It was great to work with someone who could make our thoughts materialize. The coffee station turn out fabulous! The quality of the fabrics and the furniture is outstanding. Working with a Church schedule can be a challenge, Michelle worked great with delivery and setup We have only had positive feedback from all who have entered your building. A designer who has patience, understanding and communication skill, an A+. The change is stunning.”
We are So Pleased
“We are so pleased we chose Michelle to help us update our master bedroom. She did a wonderful job figuring out what our bedroom needed and what we wanted without us knowing what we wanted. She provided us with an array of color and fabric possibilities. By selecting a pleasing balance of colors and textures, Michelle created a sleek romantic bedroom for us.”

I Love Everything
I just want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did in our kitchen sitting area. The results are so subtle, but happy mood- changing. I love everything. The rug might be my favorite! I have to tell you the room looks complete, unified, and makes me happy! Thank you again for your time, expertise, and quality work!”
Virginia Beach, VA
What I Received Was So Much More!
“I just really needed someone to come into my home and give me some clarity for a few spaces. What I received was so much more! Michelle was courteous, considerate and really took into consideration the things that I liked. She gave suggestions, while still allowing me to give my input on what I felt good about. The other amazing thing is that she has such an eye for creativity that she was able to look at spaces in my home and create entirely different looks by just moving a few pieces of furniture! She definitely has a gift for what she does and this caliber of talent can’t be taught in books!”
Pleased With the Results
“Working with Michelle on our first design project for our new house was a pleasure! She is experienced, talented, professional, & quickly zeroed in on a design plan that met our needs & budget. Communication was always prompt, clear and she was extremely flexible. She not only provides high quality options but she also designs and oversees entire process, from concept to installation. We are pleased with the results, highly recommend her!.”

“I loved the work that this designer did for 2016 Homearama so I got her card. I recently downsized to a small living space in East Beach. Since I was accustomed to more space, I just could not find my bearings in my smaller space. I knew it was a long shot but I called MJN Interiors. I do not know what I was expecting but I can tell you what I was not expecting, and that is the warm, friendly owner-Designer Michele. I explained that I was in a situation where I was forced to downsize. She listened patiently, and I made an appointment to have her come out. I have one word the describe MJN & Associates: PHENOMENAL!!!
Michele completely transformed my space by strategically placing the furniture that I had, and by adding a few accessories that I got from her. My place looked as though it had doubled in size; I was blown away! It was very elegant too.
What I appreciate most about Michele is that she treated me as though I was her highest paying client, and I know I was probably the lowest paying. I told her about my situation going in, and the maximum I had to spend. She was so very gracious and professional. She allowed me to keep my dignity. When she left not only did my place feel more like a home but I felt cared for and pampered. Michelle really gave my spirit a much needed boost. I would recommend MJN & Associates because not only are they super talented, they have heart. Thank you so very much.”
Highly Recommend Her
“Michelle’s help not only was professional, but was a comfort to me. She is so down-to-earth with her approach to decorating. I highly recommend her as your designer.”

Really Had a Great Experience
“Worked with Michelle on a Showcase Home and really had a great experience. She is so professional and organized. Met all deadlines with top shelf service.”
Sam Cohen, Joey Corp
Fantastic to Work With
“Michelle was fantastic to work with for our interior decorating project. She helped us figure out what we liked and didn’t like and was patient with us throughout the whole process. She got me to come out of my comfort zone and select colors and fabrics I would not have picked out on my own. She turned my very plain and sterile downstairs into a warm and inviting home. I feel like I live in a true show home! Love it!”
Joy to Work With
“Michelle designed multiple rooms in my home back in 2008 when we first moved into our home. I enlisted her assistance again this year when I wanted to update 4 additional rooms. I am beyond thrilled with the results. Michelle listened to my ideas and was able to interpret them into beautiful furnishings, custom rugs and window treatments. She also stayed within the budget that I had set for each room. Michelle is a joy to work with and I had a great time collaborating with her on my new spaces.”
Johns Creek, GA
Appreciated Her Expertise
“Michelle has provided design service for us in both a personal and professional engagements. She is an excellent listener and able to translate client ideas into practical, workable and aesthetically pleasing solutions. She is value conscious and able to provide guidance within budget.
In our personal home Michelle’s talent combined a myriad of eclectic art, legacy furnishing into a modern folk art style. We especially appreciated her expertise finding compatible additions which enhanced our widely diverse treasures.

She remains current on building and decorating trends as well as supplier resources.
We are pleased to recommend Michelle as a design professional .”
Best Decision I Have Made
“Hiring Michelle to help redecorate my home was the best decision I have made. I initially hired Michelle to redesign my guest room. I was so pleased with the results that I asked her to help with my master bedroom, teen suite, family room, dining room, and my husband’s office. She has an amazing knack for finding the most beautiful things at a reasonable cost. She has done custom bedding and rugs, window treatments, reupholstery, furniture, artwork, accessories, and even helped design a custom-built desk for my daughter’s room. My house now looks amazing thanks to Michelle!”
Perfect for Us
“Michelle was a pleasure to work with. She was able to help my husband and I decide a color palette and style that fit both of our tastes. We both still look at it and think….is this our living room? It is really perfect for us and our personalities. Our new living room is now a peaceful retreat that we can enjoy day in and day out.”
More Than Pleased
“I recently hired MJN Interiors to design my kitchen valance, and was very pleased. Michelle is very friendly and professional, and knew exactly what I was looking for. She was very prompt with our first appointment and assessed my window, and returned in a few days with samples and suggestions. I loved her designs and had a difficult time deciding between which design I wanted the most for my window. I was more than pleased with the end results. I would highly recommend MJN Interiors because I know you will be pleased with the extraordinary service and end results.”
My House Now Looks Beautifully Put Together
“Thanks for the wonderful install last month. I love all my new furniture, rugs and accessories! I enjoyed working with you very much and I appreciate all your suggestions, guidance and advice. I also appreciate your respect for my tastes, likes and dislikes. I felt very comfortable expressing my thoughts and ideas with you, knowing that we could, together, arrive at beautiful solutions. And we did! You made the sometimes daunting process of selecting fabrics and colors manageable and fun. Thanks for all your help, my house now looks beautifully put together! I look forward to working with you again and will not hesitate recommending you to my friends and acquaintances.”
“Michelle can do wonders! My interiors are beautifully transformed by her wonderful talent. She is very personable–pleasant–a lovely lady.”
Wonderful to Work With
“Michelle was wonderful to work with. She was always accessible, responsive, and pleasant. She really listened to what we wanted and brought us samples reflecting our preferences and taste. Michelle helped us with a number of projects, but was always happy to give advice about colors or picture and furniture placement for other areas of our home. She never made us feel rushed, but always acted in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to call on her again and to recommend her services to others.”
Deep Knowledge for Their Business
“It is with great enthusiasm that I am writing you to let you know how pleased I am with the three projects you completed. Being in the construction industry it is always great to work with someone who has a deep knowledge for their business. Thank you for coming to our house and understanding our wants and then guiding us down the right path to achieve our goals. I can only appreciate the way you were involved in the entire project. When it was time for the work to be performed at our house you were there to oversee the project until it was completed. I look forward to working with you again in the future!”
Highly Recommend Your Services
“We have really enjoyed working with you. Our sunroom is more beautiful than we imagined and we appreciate the fact that you were able to complete the project on time and within our budget. When meeting with you, we felt that you really made an effort to get to know us so that you could create a room we would love.
Our Master Closet renovation could not have gone more smoothly. The closet is beautiful, functional and was created just as we desired. This project was also completed on time and within our budget and with your amazing ideas, turned out even better than we ever dreamed it would.
We look forward to working with you again in the future and would highly recommend your services to anyone.”
What an Absolutely Wonderful Experience
“Wow! That’s the first thing we said when we saw our basement completed! What an absolutely wonderful experience working with MJN Interiors. From the first consultation we knew that Michelle cared about our project. She listened to our ideas and our budget and put it all together with such ease and patience. We had the pleasure of meeting Michelle over a year ago at the home expo show while there getting ideas for our home redecorating projects. She made such an impression that we gave her a call when we were ready for help with our projects. She was prompt and eager to help with our decisions and did a terrific job pulling everything together from my daughter’s bedroom, bathroom, and our basement. We are so delighted with the results. We are excited to continue working with Michelle in the future. Thanks so much!”
Brian and Robin Burton
We Absolutely Love It
“We want to send you our sincere gratitude for our beautiful new bedroom. We absolutely love it! It looks and feels like a nice hotel room and we are so happy with it.
We know that you worked so hard to give us yet another beautiful and functional space and we truly appreciate it.
Michelle, it’s been a real pleasure working with you to make our home feel just how we wished it would, but did not have the time or real know-how to get it done. Well, now that its done, it’s amazing how great it feels to have, and get to live in such transformed spaces. You’re terrific! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Nancy and Brian Laden
Perfect for Our Home
“Michelle, thank you for doing a great decorating job for us. The ideas you came up with were perfect for our home, it feels complete now.”

Among the Best
“Michelle Nettles was referred to us by a close friend and we found her skills and professionalism to be among the best we have experienced. She came within our budget on every project. We were pleased with the results and would recommend her to any of our neighbors.”
Judy and Roger Hammond
Hit the Mark Perfectly
“We met Michelle during the redecorating of our family room (another “Must Do” project) with the expertise of a fabulous faux painter, an artist really, named Kass. Kass not only recommended Michelle she practically insisted on her and it was truly the best piece of advice we received.
We were so delighted with our family room transformation that in less than a year we decided to tackle our bedroom … with Michelle’s help, of course! We hired out part of the painting, did some ourselves but left the “heavy lifting” (i.e., window treatment design, accent furniture selection, etc.) to Michelle. I simply told Michelle how I wanted our bedroom to “feel” and once again Michelle hit the mark perfectly. My reaction was tears of joy and awe at the transformation and my husband said our furniture never looked more beautiful!
Michelle is a true treasure – she’s fantastic at her craft, talented, a great listener and one of the nicest people we know. We are so very happy that we were introduced to Michelle and look forward to our next project with MJN Interiors! We wish her all the very best!”

A World of Difference
“I just wanted you to know that your simple suggestions made a world of difference in my home. I really appreciated all your ideas and guidance…. My husband loves it!! Can’t wait to see your ideas for the kitchen. You are so helpful and talented. I will definitely pass your name on to all my friends.”
“Michelle has done fabulous work for me. She is so talented at bringing everything together from paint color to pillows for an amazing look in a room that really reflects who I am and what I like. I am so glad to work with her. She brings high quality pieces and design talent to me for an affordable price. She is friendly, professional and creative.”
I am Amazed
“Thank you for bringing my fuzzy ideas for redoing our living room into focus and then into reality. You listened, you measured, you returned with good options that clarified my thinking and when we made our selections, you put the plan into action. We now have a very appealing focal space that has revitalized and upgraded our 22 year old home. I am amazed how the tables I wanted to keep look much better in their new environment. Somehow the classy blend of soft warm colors, the perfect fabrics, the style and the layout makes me smile and want to sit down, curl up my feet and stay put. I know others who enter our home are going to feel the same sense of comfort and enjoyment.”
Thrilled with the Results
“Michelle designed multiple rooms in my new home and I am thrilled with the results. She is a pleasure to work with and I enjoyed getting to know her as we worked through the design process. Michelle listened to my thoughts and ideas and was able to interpret them into beautiful furnishings, custom rugs and window treatments. She also stayed within the budget that I had set for each room.”
