Michelle is an extremely talented and creative interior designer who's strong sense of design is equally matched with her commitment to practicality and budget concerns, which is often difficult to find. I've had the pleasure of working with Michelle on a number of projects and am consistently impressed with her thoughtful approach and work ethic, not to mention her always positive demeanor. I would recommend Michelle without reservation. -Jon Halper, Halper Architects

We recently worked with Michelle Hogue and her team to renovate our home and we were blown away by the whole process, from beginning to end. The final result far exceeded our expectations. Michelle is absolutely incredible at what she does as both a designer and a contractor. She really took the time to listen to what we wanted from both an aesthetic and functional standpoint. Her vision for each space was always unique, innovative, creative, and beautiful. She always thinks outside of the box and this was evident in her incredible design proposals. What really sets Michelle apart from other designers is her ability to execute her ideas into an amazing reality. She knows everything about the construction process and manages every detail from start to finish. She proved to be extremely reliable, responsive, efficient, and communicative-traits that aren’t always easy to find in a contractor! She was also able to complete our renovation in the midst of a pandemic without any hiccups along the way. Michelle is enthusiastic, highly motivated, and her passion is inspiring. She takes the reigns, but also engages in productive collaboration. She strives to make a space that is beautiful and functional, but also one that sparks joy with personal touches. No detail is overlooked; everything chosen has a specific purpose. We could not be happier with Michelle, the Hogue ID team, and our magnificent renovation! We look forward to working with them on many more future projects! -Gil and Lauren

Michelle was an absolute professional from start to finish. She worked extremely efficiently by lining up all of the sub-contractors which allowed us to complete months worth of work in the span of several weeks. The quality of work exceeded expectations which speaks to the strength of her relationships with various trades. Her design background and careful eye for important detail helped with a lot of the tough decisions that renovators are bound to encounter. We would highly recommend her for your next project as we plan to use her for future work in our home. She is organized, thorough and most importantly a pleasure to work with. -Maxine

I’ve worked with different interior designers throughout the years. I’ve never been more satisfied with the end result until my most recent project. Michelle came highly recommended by many people as the “Best in CT”. She has an impeccable eye. She has saved me a lot of money along the way and it's very obvious she loves what she’s doing. We’ve had a lot of fun along the way and so happy with how everything looks. She’s a true GEM and I highly recommend her work to anyone. --Mark

Michelle Hogue is a design angel. She took our hodgepodge of ideas about a new nursery for our soon-to-be born child and didn't just bring them to life- she exceeded expectations by walking us through creative options, to gauge our taste and style, and added her own personal touches here and there to the finished rooms. Our new themed nursery has become the crown jewel of our home. Michelle also redesigned and revamped our toddler's room by maximizing the space and creating a theme centered on his two favorite loves: fire trucks and race cars. She thought it would be a great idea to incorporate an actual, small firetruck into the room. I was skeptical. My son only gets off the thing to sleep and eat. He loves his room. We've fallen in love with Hogue Interior Design. She's knowledgeable, patient, and remarkably creative. -Craig and Lindsay

Michelle's approach to interior design is both creative and functional. She is able to inspire clients with photographs and new concepts that take classic details to a new level. Michelle really enjoys getting to know each client's tastes and tailors styles perfectly to the individual. I have collaborated with Michelle on a number of new residential projects and she is always a pleasure to work with. Her attentiveness to detail, creativity and choice of materials, color and furnishings elevate the beauty of each project. -Karen Berkemeyer, Karen Berkemeyer Home

Michelle is professional and has a deep knowledge of the furniture and design market - coupled with her understanding of the construction process she is a "one stop shop" for major remodels or builds from the ground up. Her talents extend FAR beyond just choosing furniture as we used her designs to rip out walls, plumbing, electric etc.. Aside from her technical skills, her enthusiasm for creating the perfect happy place for a family is the quality that stands out the most. She really got to know the whole family through this process and elements of that were displayed throughout the design. She takes a very hands on and pro-active approach to her work and we wouldn't change a single thing with how the project turned out. -Jesse and Lisa

Michelle turned a hot pink cluttered child's room into a serene space where our teenager can study, lounge with friends, and feel at home. The highlight is the comfy built-in bed with drawer space underneath, surrounded by a string of lights. The sailcloth accessories and floating bookshelves really personalized the space for our sailor/reader. We could not be more happy with the results! Michelle is not only incredibly creative, but great to work with. She is responsive, adaptable and efficient, and from day one, really understood our goals, including our desire for eco-friendly/green furniture and accessories. We would not hesitate to work with her again. -Jen

Having worked with Michelle, the principal of hogueID, in building and designing her own home, and now having worked with her as the designer for the interiors of a number of our own homes, I whole-heartedly recommend Michelle and hogueID. Michelle has tremendous vision, is innovative and creative with her design and space planning ideas, stays abreast of the latest products and trends in the industry, works collaboratively, and has the ability to bring ideas and concepts together in a way that reflects our conversations and is unique to each home. Budgets, regardless of size, are respected and deadlines are always met. Her designs reflect her tireless effort to integrate the latest in interior design into our collaborative vision for each home. -Bluewater Home Builders

We hired Michelle as our designer for a complete home renovation project. We were first timers to a comprehensive home project. We were very lucky to have picked Michelle. She was incredibly helpful fine-tuning our original design by adding creative custom space planning elements that made the house become our own. She has an extensive knowledge of stone, tile, lighting and color. We are very happy with her designs and expert advice. -Peter and Suzy


Michelle  Hogue


We hired Michelle during our home renovation to develop and execute design and space plans for a variety of rooms. In an instant, we knew Michelle had an extraordinary eye and a unique ability to work with clients. She takes the time to learn about the people she is working with -- their personalities, interests, likes and dislikes, and perhaps most importantly, how they function in their home. After taking all of those factors into account, Michelle brings a fresh perspective and a variety of ideas to the table for discussion. She listens to feedback and, if need be, goes back and incorporates the client's ideas into the design/layout. Through this process, you are certain to end up with spaces that are simply awesome. Her designs are functional, yet fun and she isn't afraid to push you beyond your comfort level all while delivering against your objectives. Michelle is an absolute pleasure to work with and we can't wait to work with her again. -Brian and Alana

I hired Hogue Interior Design for the renovation of my home. Michelle completely understood what my intentions were with the house and also took into consideration my budget constraints. The theme that she created from inside to outside for this challenging home was flawless and truly remarkable. I was also very pleased at how available she was to address any concerns and also find solutions to issues. As a building industry professional I'm looking forward to working with Michelle on my next project and would highly recommend her to anybody looking to build their dream house. -Guillaume
