Introducing Michaela from Michaela Noelle Designs. She's talented girl about to graduate from college as an interior design major! We appreciate her words on how she combines her passion with her love for Jesus.
"For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him."Colossians 1:16

As we strive to create a beautiful home, similarly we need to pray for a beautiful heart. If the joy of the Lord is in our heart, it will permeate throughout every room in our home. I truly believe that.
In serving others, we are serving the Lord, so using our homes as a place to do just that is one of my favorite ways to glorify God through my passion for interior design. Hosting friends for lunch, dinner, or bible study is a fun way to cultivate community in your home. Keeping a well dressed home is respectful to guests and those who live with you. Creating a space you love to come home to will fill you with joy and give you the confidence to host others in your home! It's also really fun to decorate here and there :) It doesn't have to be costly either, gals! Adding some new colorful throw pillows, painting, and hanging curtains will give you the biggest bang for your buck and really make a wonderful impact.

One of my favorite books, Interior Wisdom, walks us through how to love your home and live for Christ. I just love this quote from Leah Richardson's book, "Help me to focus all my creative efforts on pleasing you, for I desire my home and my heart to be a place of beauty, a living sanctuary."
Thank you so much for having me, girls! What fun to share my heart and passion. For more interior design inspiration, visit me anytime!
