Kami Michels

Designer

Kami Michels

Kami is a vintage furniture loving mom of two rambunctious little boys, so of course, she believes that the design process should first and foremost be fun. Her approach to design is to maximize the function of the space while making it “sexy,” as she likes to say. She moved to Ann Arbor in 1997 to attend The University of Michigan, where she earned her BFA in Sculpture. She later attended Eastern Michigan University and completed her MS in Interior design. She’s a little quirky, proud of her geekiness, and brings a high level of genuine creativity to her clients. Her inspired designs have earned numerous awards and features on Houzz. She also stars in the DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen television commercials donning her signature red hair, eyebrow piercing, and tattoos.

Marde Doolan

Designer

Marde Doolan

Marde has been recreating spaces ever since she can remember. Unfortunately, her parents did not share their eight-year-old daughter’s enthusiasm for remodeling their home. Eventually, Marde chose to pursue Interior Design professionally when she discovered that she could never own enough homes to satisfy all the styles that appeal to her. Creating fresh and exciting spaces that work fluidly with the client’s needs fuels her dedication to her craft. In her off-hours, Marde dotes on her second son—a silky terrier named Teddy.
