A Richmond native and a graduate from the University of Virginia, Michael has been designing custom interiors since 2003. He is President of the Richmond Chapter of the International Furnishing & Design Association for 2016, and previously worked creating unique soft furnishings for clients in central Virginia from Williamsburg to Wintergreen. He took over Cabin Creek in 2012 and has expanded its services to include full-custom interior design. Enthusiastic and creative, Michael is always looking for the best solution to solve any decorating and design dilemma and especially loves tackling challenging projects. The child of two designers (furniture and fashion), his love for the arts and interiors has been with him throughout his life.
“Good design is good design, and I enjoy almost any style or genre as long as it’s done well.”
Melissa recently joined Cabin Creek as Michael's assistant. She has an eye for color after 15 years as a freelance impressionist pastel artist.

She is a member of the Pastel Society of America and International Furnishing & Design Association. Outside of work she enjoys plein air painting and yoga.

SINCE 1978, CABIN CREEK INTERIORS has decorated some of the finest Virginia homes!
From window treatment manufacturer to full service interiors, Cabin Creek has grown from its humble beginnings in 1978 as a maker of ruffled window treatments to today as a local leader in the field of design and furnishing. Our ever-growing curated selection of both decor and custom options combined with our years of knowledge and experience ensure that we can meet the needs of our clients, regardless of their project budget, style, or size. So whether it’s full interior design, custom décor, accessories, new furniture, lighting, flooring, wallpaper, and window treatments, come let our years of experience help you create a beautiful home.
Founded in 1978 as Colonial Home Design, an interior decorating firm specializing in window treatments and upholstery, Cabin Creek Interiors® was purchased and added on in 1986. Along with this came a full-service workroom, specializing in ready made window treatments, and full custom made products, including bedding, slipcovers, and upholstery. After many years in service, the full workroom was eventually retired and Cabin Creek Interiors® became more custom interior design oriented, all while still offering the same quality level of construction and customer service. After 35 years in business, Cabin Creek Interiors® has now expanded into full interior decorating, including furniture, art, lighting, window treatments, design services, and anything else you could need to make your home beautiful!
