“There’s no one-size-fits-all ‘look’ to our projects,” says Tom, “Each is specifically tailored to a client. If we do our job well, at the end there should be no trace of us— just a happy client.”
David Micheal Miller Associates | Residential Design
"When you enter the home you’re immediately aware of a sense of calm, restful luxury."
- House Beautiful Magazine
"As with all Miller interiors, the design for the home recedes into simple elegance while remaining provocative and evocative: this is the David Michael Miller paradox."
