About Selah-Vie

A Nashville interior design agency that works with homeowners looking to feel at home in their newly purchased, built, or renovated space. We’re passionate about helping you discover what makes you feel at home and arranging your space in a way that feels like you and works for you. We’ll figure it out together.

You can call her SJ – all her friends do anyway. She dreamed about designing spaces at 9 years old, studied interior design at the University of Cincinnati, and is now living the dream.

Her favorite thing about design? Lighting. The size, space, mood, and shape of a room hinges on it. Her favorite thing about designing? The clients. SJ doesn’t just own the room when she walks into it, she listens for the story, the details, and preferences. Teaming up with clients to design a space they will love living in is the real success.

When she’s not working on a client project, you can find her helping the event’s team at her church, taking a sculpting class, or hosting a game night. But when in doubt – always check the golf course!

Meet The Team


Dana Michele is a Chattanooga-based interior designer dedicated to helping her clients create a space that is authentic to their personality and tells a story of who they are.

Dana is a color guru. With her amazing eye for color, she is able to pull tones and hues into a space like no one else. Her ability to incorporate a vintage or well-loved piece of furniture into her designs sets her apart from other interior designers. She believes “if you love it, there is a place for it.”

Her passion for color and design started while living in Germany and traveling around Europe. As a former Air Force wife, she has lived and worked in various regions of the United States which exposed her to many design ideas and philosophies. This exposure, combined with over 20 years of experience, including owning her own design studio and working as a color consultant in the Midwest allows her to bring a unique perspective to a project.

Dana and her husband now call Tennessee home – that is, if she is not visiting one of her three boys or off on another adventure!

I had never worked with an interior design team before so I didn’t know what to expect! Working with Sara-Jane and the Selah-Vié team was honestly better than any of those expectations. They were able to take the ideas I had and build a custom plan & implement the vision and did all the heavy lifting along the way. It was AMAZING to move in and my home be ready! I didn’t have to think about a thing and I’m just in LOVE with each detail that makes my space feel like me!

Not only does Sara-Jane have an impeccable eye for design, but she makes the process fun for everyone! Sara-Jane knows how to brighten up any room, literally and figuratively, with her infectious energy and ambition.

Can’t say enough great things about working with them! We hired them for staging our home to sell and ended up having them select furniture and create a cool outdoor living area of our new home! They are reliable, easy to communicate with and just an absolute joy to work with!
