I N T E R I O R D E S I G N 233 M.O.I. Designs Each home has a soul, an energy that represents the lives of the people who live within it. It's a feeling that can be sensed in the flow and harmony of colors, textures, and finishes. Revealing this energy and expressing it creatively is one of the things that Desirae Wilkerson, owner and principal designer of M.O.I. Designs, does best. She believes that every space has the potential to bring balance to people's lives. Sometimes it just needs the guiding touch of someone who can think outside the box. Desirae is certainly that kind of thinker and possesses a keen eye for design that brings clients back to her with new projects as their lifestyles change. From the moment she first meets with clients, and as she learns about their vision, Desirae begins assembling a concept based on the site, owners' needs, and the structure of the home itself. With a love of mid-century modern design, clean lines, neutral colors, and natural elements, Desirae's work is best described as modern bohemian style, but there's a subtlety to her designs that reflects the individuality of each person with whom she works. Whether the client wants timeless minimalism, a serene contemporary abode, or a high-fashion feel, Desirae captures the essence of their dreams. There's also a balance to her designs that is felt on a deeper level. It's a feeling of connection and love between the physical and the intangible elements of the space. Add to that her down-to-earth personality, which makes Desirae a delightful partner for creating elegant spaces, and it's easy to see why her clients love her. Her passion for design and love of people can be felt the moment you walk into an M.O.I. Designs space. Every piece is intentionally selected for the space, full of personality, and exudes warmth. Quite simply, her designs feel like home. LEFT: A surprising basement kitchen feels light and airy through the proper harmony of finishes and colors.
