A new interior design business has moved into the suite previously occupied by Finders. Carly Burns, who just moved back to Mercer Island after attending school in New York and L.A., opened C. Michele Interior Lifestyles on Sept. 28.

‘Michele’ is Burns’ middle name. The shop offers a selection of gifts for the home and special occasions: wedding, hostess, babies; and design services.

“I don’t think it’s necessary to spend a lot of money to give someone a great gift, although I do have things that are more expensive,” said Burns, who also offers help in reorganizing interiors and reaccesorizing shelves.

Burns grew up on the Island and graduated from Mercer Island High School. She attended Hofstra University on Long Island, for interior design, and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A.

Burns’ Island roots extend back several generations. Her grandfather, Richard Galanti, was a businessman who opened a grocery store near the current location of the Shorewood apartments.

The boutique is located at 7605 S.E. 27th Street, Suite 102, and business hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday.
