Michelle Drenckhahn

Hello!  I am Michelle, but you can call me CHELLE /SHel/.

Although I have been designing for over 25 years, on August 15, 2005, I embarked on a journey of my own. The decision to start a business has changed my life!  Not only have I been blessed with truly amazing clients but I also have the ability to choose who I work with and where.  Sure, the flexibility of hours and a home office are not too bad either!

On August 15, 2015 we celebrated 10 years of design with the rebirth of Spacial Adaptation as CHELLE! 

The nickname Chelle was given to me by one of my favorite people in the world when we were young. To me, it means family, loyalty, trust & love.  To me, it is more than a name, it is who I want to be each day. The best mom, the best aunt, the best daughter, the best sister and niece. In offering the business this name, I hope to be the best designer, best cheerleader and best project partner I can be to my clients, vendors and employees.

I believe in working with my clients to achieve their goals.  I love to explore options, develop ideas and produce spaces that are inviting, timeless and just, plain ole,  feel good!

I love color, EVERY color!  Bold. Subtle. Bright. Muted. And, I love a challenge.  Budget constraints. Weird floor plans. Unique spaces.

I never take myself too seriously, just my work. If you’re willing to enjoy this process, laugh at the insanity of it all, be pushed a bit past your “decorating” comfort zone and smile, just because your life really is pretty great…I’m your girl.

I can’t wait to meet you!
