My name is Lacey Michalek, and I’m the interior designer for Magpies Gifts Design Services. I wanted to take a second to introduce myself and give you a little background as to how I came into my role with the company.
I was almost done with my senior year of college at Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) when I realized the degree I was pursuing in psychology wasn’t necessarily leading me down the path I saw for my future. I was devouring design magazines and reading design blogs every day in my spare time, and it became clear that interior design was my calling.
It was a little late in the game to switch majors, so I went on to complete my psychology degree. With that accomplishment behind me, I quickly started pursuing my passion for design. I enrolled in interior design courses at The Art Institute of Houston and began working for several well-known designers around town. Through hands-on experience and a behind-the-scenes look at how the pros worked, I learned how to tap into what clients love and pull together rooms that show off their unique style. Eventually I decided to start taking my own clients and managing my own projects.
My favorite client is someone who is interested in a curated, comfortable and collected space. I have appreciation for every design style, from traditional to contemporary. This appreciation is what allows me to mix different looks to create one cohesive feel!
I am loving life as an interior designer, wife and mom of two incredible kids!
