Michelle Forbes

Project Developer/ Interior Designer

Michelle was born and raised in Iowa, graduated from the University of Iowa (2009), and I’m a proud Hawkeye fan, especially football. She has been working as a kitchen and bath designer since 2014 in Iowa, Denver, and Fort Collins since 2017.

Her role at ABD is project consultant and designer, specializing in kitchen, bath, and other interior projects. She describes her the benefits of her multiple roles:

“By taking on two roles, I have double the opportunity to build relationships with my clients. I am the first person they meet when they’re interested in starting a project with ABD and beginning to develop their vision. Then, I get to dig deeper into the space planning and finishes to help my clients realize their vision.”

Her favorite projects are remodels in family homes. “It’s so rewarding to work in a home that a family has already come to love and transform the space for the people who enjoy it every day.” 

In her free time, she likes to be outside all year round. She loves to ski: “I skied almost daily as a kid and even miss Iowa skiing a little, just because it was so accessible that I could be on the snow all the time.” She also enjoys to hike, go to the art museum, bake, and read. Mostly though, she just hangs out with her family – her husband, baby boy, and border collie.
