About Michale Stapleton

I am an interior designer. I have completed high end residential, hospitality, restaurants and bar design and and have been active in the design/development of new urban infill multi housing.

I have lived in this neighborhood since 1982. I have renovated many homes and historic buildings. I am so pleased that my effort has contributed to the re birth of OKC's urban core.

I have 4 dogs and 3 cats. All have found their way to my home and stayed.

My home is a duplex. I live upstairs with the carriage house in the back.

I welcome individuals who are kind and respectful to all people.

Michale Stapleton purchased this studio in 1995

Why Michale Stapleton chose Oklahoma City

The neighborhood located Downtown is over 100 years old and one of the most beautiful in Oklahoma.

The studio is located on the edge of the neighborhood. If you want to be near the activity but not in it , this is your place. The studio has a wonderful ambience feels like you are in a cabin in the woods. The woods in this case are 100 year old trees and very interesting assortment of turn of the century architecture. Your view from the windows of the studio is upon a beautiful belle epoque limestone museum.

This little studio was a labor of love for several years. It was a total wreck and required everything to be replaced and renovated. I do this for a living but when it is your own place you put it behind everyone else. When I completed it I thought I would use it for my design studio but all my design samples overwhelmed it.

So when we bought a small iconic mid century office building I moved the design clutter out.

What makes this studio unique

Near everything Midtown, Auto Alley, Downtown, Uptown, Plaza District, Arts District, Film Row, Deep Deuce, Bricktown. You won't need a car. Uber is very affordable arrives in about 4 minutes on average and a Spokies station is within 8 minutes walking (bike share program).

Great location, great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, nicely decorated- just like the pictures. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do downtown and midtown. The neighborhood was beautiful with nice historic houses.

It was very nice ... I have a couple of suggestions ... 3 things

1 update the info about AC thermostat

2 make sure the emails have correct wifi info

3 the pot doesn't work right with the coffee maker... it's not the original which can be very messy

Overall it was very clean and nice!!! Felt safe and comfy!!!

Clean and well-designed garage studio - perfect for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay in this carriage house - perfect size for one or two people for the weekend. I didn't use the kitchen much but it was certainly well equipped - everything you could want! The bathroom was also well-equipped - handy if you forgot to pack something. The whole place was very clean and I know this may sound strange, but it had great lighting. There are several lamps and ceiling lights which is really nice to be able to change the lighting and make it customized to your needs - reading a book, watching tv, making a meal, etc. I would highly recommend a stay here - hope you enjoy this place as much as I did!

Super sweet and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We came to town to run in the OKC Memorial Marathon and wanted something close to all of that activity. This place was actually right on the course, and only a mile from the start line. We made a long weekend out of it and it was perfect! Very eclectic and cozy. Much better than a hotel stay the night before a run! My husband kept remarking on how great the towels smelled too! We will definitely be looking into this place for next years run!

No better place to stay in OKC

  • 5 of 5

The studio is immaculately maintained and furnished, we felt like we were staying in our own place. Very private area and quiet neighborhood, this is the perfect place to stay. When we come back to OKC we will be staying here again.
