The b&v Team


Michaeline, ASID, IDS

Owner & Principal Designer

With her dazzling smile and infectious laughter, Michaeline is sure to light up the room! Finding her former career in pharmaceutical sales a little too boring for her entrepreneurial spirit, Michaeline pursued her passion of interior design and started her own business in 2004. With her creative expertise and project management skills, she’ll put your design fears to rest with her “can do” attitude as she creates a plan to meet your vision, lifestyle needs and budget.

What Michaeline likes best about her profession is not just creating beautiful, customized homes but also developing lasting relationships with clients. Leading the design team, she fosters an environment of teamwork, creativity and support making B&V the very best place to work! The sign on our back door says “Best Day Ever” and that’s how we like to make our clients feel when they come visit.

When Michaeline is not busy running around to clients’ homes, job sites, and visiting vendors you’ll find her relaxing at her bohemian beach house with her herd of dogs or visiting her extended group of friends and family. She loves spending time at the beach and working out at Orange Theory Fitness. Her favorite thing to eat is an awesome Charcuterie board.


Store Curator/Accessory Maven

Kelly is best known as the accessory queen! She finds the most unique and curated items for the store, while keeping ahead of the latest trends. We can always count on her to put the finishing touches on a project with accessories for the exciting client reveal. Kelly welcomes everyone into the store with a smile and is eager to help customers find the perfect gift. She is always willing to help with any design dilemma and find a creative solution to make their space complete.

When Kelly isn't sourcing the perfect accessories, she is spending time with her very active family and two dogs, Winnie and Cooper.



Debbie began her career in finance which lends itself nicely to project management and keeping true to a client’s budget. She is a creative and organized powerhouse. She is so good at getting her client’s outside of their comfort zones, leading to fun and beautiful finished spaces. Her main goal is to get the job done with completely happy clients and she nails it every time!

In her free time, Debbie loves to find adventure while traveling with her family, especially skiing, where she kills it on the slopes.

We all love working with Deb at b&v where she brings her creative functional style to life!


Design Assistant/Admin

Amanda graduated from Kean University with a B.F.A. in Interior Design. Shortly after graduating, she became part of the b&v team and boy are we glad to have her! Amanda knows it all and is on top of everything so if she doesn’t have an answer to our questions then we’re really out of luck! She creates floorplans, sources items, creates invoices, places and tracks orders, schedules deliveries, helps keep track of the finances, and organizes the store. Yeah... she does it all, all while keeping Michaeline in check!

In her spare time, you can find Amanda online shopping, practicing yoga, or hanging out with her dogs, Stanley and Kooper. She really is a rockstar and we are so grateful for her!


Design Assistant

When Emily graduated from Fairfield University with a degree in marketing, she realized interior design was truly her passion! She joined our team and put her marketing skills to the test; she's our social media wiz who creates aesthetically pleasing Instagram posts for the store and the design studio. Emily spends hours sourcing items for clients, measures existing spaces during client meetings, creates invoices, schedules deliveries, and tracks orders.

When she's not busy working with a Starbucks in her hand, you can find her browsing through the latest design trends. We're happy to have this young and trendy Rockstar on our team!
