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 Central 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).

This really is home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place is very clean, is in a convient location and kitchen has everything you can ask for. In my work travels as a lady I always worry about location, but the neighborhood is very safe. I was here for about 3 weeks loved getting up in the morning on weekends and walk to grab coffee and breakfast nearby. Michale is very accommadating and pleasant. I am actually coming back next week for an extended job assignment and was soo happy to rebook with Michale and Marva once again.

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend away and we were very happy and comfortable here! The studio is super cute and has lots of great amenities. The location of the house was truly amazing...loved walking and driving through the surrounding streets to see the historic homes.

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Like a lot of the reviews here, in agreement this is the perfect little hideaway for a few days in OKC. Close to the downtown area and shopping, museums. It is very 'walkable' meaning if you are up to walking and the weather is nice, it is an easy, safe stroll to all the fun. As described, the cottage has everything you need and is full of a laid back personality. I too want to keep this one as a secret!!! I will definitely be back!
