From Our Clients

My husband John and I purchased a 1873 French Second empire Victorian that had been completely destroyed by fire when we purchased it. Being a landmark we wanted to raise it up from the ashes. We knew we had an enormous project ahead of us. Our friend and neighbor had been killed in the World Trade Center during this time. We wanted to help his wife with her fundraising efforts to form a foundation in Richard Keane’s memory. Our thought was to raise money by placing the house on tour. Michele was as passionate about this project as we were. Her know how and creativity were just what the house needed. It was a stress releaser having her by our side. We raised over $100,000 with our 14 day tour. It’s still the talk of the town. I would highly recommend MCK Interiors.

Our first experience with MCK Interiors was for my Daughters bedroom….that was (26)……years ago. Since then MCK has taken charge of 5 properties, and 1 executive office.  One total build from the ground up. She is a unique talent.  Her knowledge of construction with all the details are an all in one package with her, custom built in designs, fireplace mantle designs, Chimney stack, paver designs, she tackles what ever she is presented  with determination. Michele’s visions are one of a kind …..I don’t ever ask… I just let her do her thing….we are always thrilled with the outcome. She is trustworthy, diligent, and professional. I highly recommend MCK Interiors for both residential and commercial work.  I look forward to future projects with her. We would not think of using anyone else.

Michael Nobile, CEO Nobile Hinchey Private Wealth Management, LLC

Have worked with Michele on three different homes which she handled top to bottom- Kitchen design, colors, coordination of tile, window treatments etc. She continues to amaze with her creativity, style and class. Easy to work with, on time, wouldn’t think of working with anyone else.


It is hard to articulate all the hard work with a few words! The front offices of our facility needed a complete overhaul.  MCK Interiors was highly recommended by an employee at a furniture store we frequent.  Michele was able to quickly assess our needs and put together a plan for our renovation.  Her team of experts was flexible, professional and accommodated our need to keep the business going during the renovation.  We are so pleased with the results!  We would recommend MCK Interiors to anyone looking to do a complete update to an outdated office.
