Lady Michael McCraine is the former owner and CEO of Fictional Homes. She studied Architecture and Interior Design at UCLA and brings sixteen years of experience as a leading Los Angeles based interior designer and home stager to Marshall Design Group.

Each of her staged homes draws upon those dreams and is strategically designed to stimulate buyers emotionally by creating and igniting feelings of nostalgia, fantasy, and curiosity.
