Introduction: In 2020, Michael established Msquared Interior Design. He brings captivating, affordable interior design to the DMV area and beyond. He believes that each client’s space should be stylish, reflect their lifestyle and taste, and be a space they love to call home. Michael is a licensed psychologist, social worker, and veteran who happens to have a love for interior design. Before starting my career in Interior Design, I saw a vision for infusing my experience as a psychologist and social worker with my passion for interior design. There are real psychological effects from the decor in your spaces. Decor impacts happiness, attitudes, and even temperature in a given space. Interior Design is about making your room beautiful it's also about making it a happier and healthier place. I make sure that my clients feel that they are getting a personalized consultation session where I can get to know each client to customize the space for them, make sure it is home, and feel like a model home. Virtual design- I spend time getting to know you, your space & the style you would like to achieve. I can help you arrange your current furniture, update your space, select new paint, or any area you feel stuck. We will chat over FaceTime or Zoom, and you can show me your home. After our consult, I’ll also send visual examples of items we discussed. I empower you to feel confident to implement the changes on your own and save money! If you want me to shop for items for you, I charge $100 an hour. I’ll send you links to purchase items online at whatever stores you choose to shop.

I needed to hire a designer to design the dining,living room, owner suite and bath. Msquared Interior Design made the process so easy and smooth. They transformed my generic ideas, helped me see beyond basic and turned these areas into beautiful and elegant masterpieces. Highly Recommend

I sought out an interior designer because I struggle with a vision for designing. Michael not only helps with a vision, he turns it into a reality! His design acumen is meritorious. The result are rooms that are showroom ready yet function for everyday use. You will not be disappointed!

Michael knows his stuff! He was able to help me pick out paint colors with very little direction. He was very speedy and his suggestions were very helpful. Additionally, he is very knowledgeable about paint and lighting. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him in the future and hope to use his services when I do a big kitchen reno early next year.

Details: Design of 1 - 2 rooms • Bedroom(s) • Less than 500 sq ft • Color palette / paint selection • Eclectic • Contemporary • Traditional • My home, venue, etc.

I told Michael what I was wanting in the remodeling of my kitchen. Michael was able to come up with the design, color and funiture by the end of the day. I look forward to him remodeling my bedroom once my kitchen is complete

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We have a free consultation call to discuss the project & budget. After the call, I request the following info. I offer four options: 1. Provide the shopping list and guide you with placing everything in the correct place. 2. I will purchase all of the items and ship them directly to your home. 3. I can buy the items and install them in each room at an extra charge, take the stress off of you, and have everything delivered to your home for install day, and I will itemize each item on the final invoice. 4. My Virtual Design Option- I spend time getting to know you, your space & the style you would like to achieve. I can help you arrange your current furniture, update your space, select new paint, or any area you feel stuck. We will chat over FaceTime or Zoom, and you can show me your home. I empower you so that you feel confident to implement the changes on your own and save money! If you want to get started, I will need the following information. If you could email the following details: Once I receive the following information, I will send over a service agreement. Once you complete the service agreement and pay your deposit, I will start your project. The remaining balance is due 2-3 days before the design presentation. 1. Would you please give me floor plans and pictures of existing rooms? Sample floor plans of your home and sketches are also accepted. 2. If you have furniture to re-use, please attach photos & dimensions of each item in the room. 3. Do you have a preference on stores for items, or are you open to me selecting items or if you prefer to use another online store, please let me know. Example stores: Horchow, Perigold, Wayfair, Amazon, Overstock, High fashion and Z Gallerie. 4. Please refer to some pictures from Pinterest / Instagram / google; what kind of interior style do you like. 5. Would you please let me know if you have an additional request here? (optional A 3D rendering image helps the clients who do not want to relinquish total control and have difficulty visualizing everything coming together and trusting the process. I don't do these with every client, but it's an option I offer. They are time-consuming because they incorporate all of the pieces and accessories in the image. Incredibly, they are to the finished interior. It will ruin the element of surprise when I do the handover, but it helps clients visualize the space to the finish line. 6. Full Name 7. Address 8. Email address 9. Phone Number
