Interior design for elegant, contemporary, UpNorth living.

The Quiet Moose is a full-service Northern Michigan interior design firm and furniture store based in Petoskey, Michigan with projects ranging all over Northern Lower Pennisula and beyond. Our interior designers work closely with our clients on their design process; helping to develop their ideas, translating individual requirements and aspirations into beautiful interiors tailored to suit our client’s unique lifestyles. From conception to completion, The Quiet Moose is recognized for elegance, individuality, and remarkable attention to detail throughout — from architectural space planning and materials, custom cabinetry, kitchen and bath design, lighting, and furnishings to the last work of art and accessories.

We consider it a privilege to be entrusted with the design of our clients’ personal spaces and value the relationships made in the process. While our design philosophy is consistent throughout our work, no two projects will ever look the same. Each is a reflection of the unique architecture, setting, and individuality of our clients.


From your first, consultation with your designer right through to the delivery day here’s what to expect when you embark on the QM Home Interior Design Service.


It all begins with some one-to-one time with one of our designers at our store or over a video call. This is where you’ll get to talk us through your ideas, wishes, and wants. Your designer will also take you through the collections and answer any early questions you might have. This appointment will usually last about 60–90 minutes.

If you decide that you’d like to go ahead, your designer will then come to your home to have an in-depth design session lasting usually between several hours and a whole day, depending on the size of your project. Together, you’ll go over color palettes, samples, textiles, and layouts, and your designer will also take detailed measurements. By the time they head on their way, they’ll have a crystal-clear picture of what you want your room to be.


When your designs are ready, we’ll invite you back into the store to present your room to you and make any final changes. You’ll have a mood board, sample board, to-scale sketch, and a detailed quote at the end of it to help you see your new room coming into shape.

If you’re happy, we can place the order and get the wheels in motion. If you want to take everything home and mull it over, just come back to us when you’re ready.

Look out for the QM Home van — we’ll be on our way to bring everything in one go rather than in multiple batches. Our team will unwrap, assemble and position your furniture, then take away all the packaging for recycling. Your designer will be there too and will style your home so that, by the time we leave, all that’s left for you to do is sit back and enjoy it.


If you’re ready to get started on your home’s design, simply fill out our online form and we’ll get in touch to organize a date and time that suits you best.
