We’re so pleased to feature your terrific work this month...
many, many, thanks!
Never losing sight of his lifelong passion, Michael Gainey is regarded as one of Central Florida’s most esteemed and talented designers, bringing his signature style into homes across Brevard County.
Michael made a very daunting task easy and fun for us! We were building a new home and needed to fully furnish it. He was beside us every step of the way through the entire process: from personally visiting the building site to measuring room space and advising on the placement of electrical outlets, to choosing furniture, lamps, window treatments,rugs and wall hangings,his advice was invaluable. The end result: ”perfection!"
Our beachfront condo is so glorious we just can’t seem to stop inviting everyone in to see it! Michael did a great job at taking our own thoughts and turning them into reality with such a flair! I am now in search of other rooms, just for the fun of working with Michael. We can never thank him enough!
From the moment we met Michael we knew he had the sensitivity to decorate our vintage home on the Indian River. Our residence circa 1914, provided the perfect backdrop to raise our four children. However after they all left the nest, we felt it was finally time to furnish “Fairview” in the proper manner. Over a Cuba Libre, Mr. Teague-Gainey described the home of our dreams. Nodding to the past but understanding contemporary casual living of today, he prescribed slip covered comfy seating, hand-painted pieces pulled together with lovely sisal rugs. After our family room was painted a delicious shade of what he described as cerulean blue, with slipcovers to match, my mother who has impeccable taste exclaimed, “Why it looks like Michael’s ideas just blew in from off the river!” Michael is still working own our home, in his own words “it’s a process.” Mr. Teague-Gainey may never finish, but honestly thats quite alright with us!
I first met Michael Gainey working at a major furniture store in 1992. We were looking for ideas to update our 1970’s home. After explaining this to Michael, we decided to have him come over look around. He immediately came up with some great ideas. We then asked him to redecorate our home. I remember Michael saying “before I leave here, your house will look like a picture in a magazine”. Well, in the end, it surely did. This year in 2011, we again wanted to update our home. We immediately thought of Michael. We found Michael still in the business. This time, major renovations were needed. Once again, Michael worked his magic. He created an entirely new look that reflects who we are. Michael not only knows the interior design business, but he is a creator. He takes certain pieces that you have in your home and creates a warm atmosphere around them. He is warm, sincere, upbeat and a pleasant person to be around. Thanks again Michael.
Known Michael for about 15 years. Have seen many homes that have had Michael's special touch. Always beautiful work, always professional...but also he becomes your new best friend...for life. My sister is currently having her house done by Michael. Can't wait to see the final reveal!
I have worked with Michael over the last 5 years and he never ceases to amaze me. I always feel totally confident to put my total trust In Michael to complete a project beyond my expectations. He is attentive to details and focusing on making sure all projects reflect my personality. Michael is the epitome of a professional that always puts the needs of his clients first! A true pleasure to work with!
Michael Gainey has an intuitive and creative ability to go beyond his customers' wishes for great design. I sought his expertise for a living room window treatment that would frame the beautiful scenery of a rolling golf course behind my house. Michael's sketch for the project was so much more than I had hoped. Without detracting from the exterior view, he chose soft shades and textures to compliment the colors of nature, while at the same time, enhancing the interior's palette and furniture style. His unique design, incorporating small amounts of five complementary fabrics and trims is breath-taking and never fails to elicit an "ah-h-h" as first-time visitors enter the front door of my home.
Michael Gainey is a joy to work with and a wonderfully creative designer! We used Michael when our new Suntree home was built and he helped us realize the vision we had for some of its artistic and retro finishing touches. Recently, Michael jumped right in to an office makeover, helping us to restore a historically significant space to its former glory. It now has stunning visual appeal, in addition to being a comfortable and historically relevant work environment. It was refreshing to work with a professional who was happy do 'as little or as much' as WE wanted. We appreciated that he didn't exert pressure on us, or try to "hard-sell" us on any aspect of the projects. In both instances, the results reflected our personalities --not his. We can recommend Michael Gainey with 100% confidence to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful and resourceful designer to transform an existing space or bring a new space to life.
I've been working with Michael Gainey Signature Designs for the last year on a complete home remodel project. From our very first meeting, I felt comfortable that Michael understood my style and needs. He worked within my timeframe and budget and provided guidance and suggestions through out the entire project. Michael is so talented in coordinating colors and textures and the result is better than I could have ever imagined! He also works directly with several vendors and can provide high quality furniture at internet pricing. I would highly recommend Michael and his team and look forward to working with them again in the future.
I first hired Michael Gainey over ten years ago when I was building a custom home. Since that time I have continually relied on Michael for all my home design projects and was delighted when Michael Gainey Signature Designs opened in nearby Cocoa Village. Michael's masterful experience combined with his fresh ideas and honest opinions have produced results for my home that are absolutely amazing! Not only did Michael listen to the goals for the look I was trying to achieve but he made them a reality for me and the result was even better than I envisioned. I will continue to consult Michael for all my home design needs and look forward to seeing his 'magic' transpire throughout my home.
