Meet the designer
As a real estate agent with a penchant for design, Michele went back to school to study interior design and launched a second career when she founded AJ's by Design in 2001. With her exquisite taste and a keen eye for color, pattern and texture, Michele elevates her clients' style into the best version of itself. Michele prides herself on her ability to pull out the personal aesthetic of every client she works with. A favorite challenge is finding the balance between a couple's conflicting tastes and creating a space they both love. Michele has been an active member of the Gainesville community for many years. She serves on the Board of Associates for Meridian Behavioral Healthcare and is an active supporter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Gainesville Chapter.
