The Mine is thrilled to welcome acclaimed interior designer Michelle Nussbaumer to Week 34 of 52 Weeks of Design,
known for her fearlessly bold, travel-inspired, eclectic designs.

Michelle Nussbaumer


Acclaimed Interior Designer and trailblazer, Michelle Nussbaumer, is consistently named among the top designers and tastemakers in the country. Her projects and designs are frequently featured in the pages of leading national and international publications including House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Veranda, Architectural Digest, Marie Claire and German Elle Décor. Michelle's interiors combine a fearless use of color and reflect an eclectic, yet timeless mix of bold patterns and influences from around the world to create her unmistakable signature style. In 2009, she was honored as one of Elle Decor's "Five Leading Women in Design" and one of her projects was named one of Veranda's "25 Most Beautiful Rooms".

Globe-trotting Nussbaumer, with offices based in Dallas and Switzerland, channels her style and inspiration from the places she has lived and traveled such as Italy, Asia, Mexico, Switzerland, Morocco and India. Elle Décor has called her "a fearless style monger known for her dizzying trove of antiques and signature line of furniture and lighting". Nussbaumer's Dallas showroom Ceylon et Cie is home to her furniture collection Ceylon et Cie Portfolio, her eponymous Michelle Nussbaumer Fabric line, and her celebrated line of jewelry, jewel-encrusted boxes and trays named Rock Candy. An exotic collection of 18th, 19th and 20th century antiques and textiles are also showcased from her travels.

Michelle has collaborated on various projects including wallpaper with Gracie Studio, Mexican glassware, Delft tabletop, a Gwyneth Paltrow Goop pop-up shop, plus modern wallpaper with the Newlon Collection. Most recently, she developed her own line of textiles, a modern interpretation of classic ikats and indigenous patterns called Michelle Nussbaumer Fabrics, a tile line with Exquisite Surfaces and an art line with Leftbank Art. Michelle's travel and design blog "Dreaming in Color" and her design projects are the inspiration behind her newly released book, Wanderlust - Interiors that Bring the World Home with Rizzoli Books.

More is more! Less is never more. Less is obviously less. I am a maximalist. I love color, pattern, over-scaled prints, travel, other cultures and an interior that reflects that. I love antiques, modern art, children, dogs, friends and family. I like for my interiors to be comfortable and feel lived in. I feel my client’s interiors should be a personal reflection of who they are and how they live. I try to help them achieve that.
