“Melissa was such a pleasure to work with! Her attention to even the smallest of details helped me to get exactly what I wanted with the design of my home. Her eye for choosing colors that are aesthetically pleasing while staying in my requested color palette is amazing! The best thing about working with her was that I felt like she really listened to me and all of my many needs concerning safety, practicality, durability, maintenance, and upkeep while she created a beautiful design. I have a home that is truly unique and not at all cookie-cutter!”
“Melissa is a joy and an extremely talented designer. Working with her was, quite simply, an all-around amazing experience. She helped create the home of our dreams, which is as gorgeous as it is functional. We had a lot of opinions and felt safe and encouraged to share them. Melissa utilized her extensive network and experience to find us options that were period-appropriate to our Craftsman home, while still being conscious of our working budget. We would whole-heartedly recommend working with Melissa on any design project.”

“Making decisions during a remodel can be overwhelming – there are so many options for every choice you need to make. Melissa helped me narrow in on the things that really resonated with me, and with her guidance, I ended up with a spectacular outcome. She took a handmade glass sink that I’d bought ten years ago and turned it into the centerpiece of a “jewel box” powder room, leveraging the unique colors to create a balanced and tranquil spot. For my primary bathroom, she helped me create a custom-made tile floor and guided my selection of just the right fixtures, shower tile, wallpaper, and vanity. It’s a small room but she made it into an oasis. I could never have done any of this on my own. She gave me such a perfect selection of options at every turn and was so patient and professional throughout the process. Beyond her great design skills, she also knew all the best people to do the work. I’m so grateful for the experience and for the end results.”
“Melissa is an incredibly talented, knowledgeable, and detail-oriented designer and I feel so lucky to have worked with her, and to work with her again in the future. She was pivotal in helping my husband and I remodel most of our 1938 French Norman home in Magnolia. We love the end product.
We wanted to keep much of the Art Deco style features original to the house, while also modernizing it and including hints of my love for traditional and French countryside designs. I sent her hundreds of various Pinterest images with all sorts of ideas and colors, none of which really matched! Melissa has such an eye for style and beautifully merging everything together, she carefully sorted through each picture and asked insightful questions to understand what I was truly looking for. She came to all meetings completely prepared and with several ideas to talk through. She was conscious of parts of the budget that needed to be tightened up and was extremely open and clear with her time spent. Melissa is very honest when I would ask her if certain things would go together, which I greatly appreciated because she always had her eye on a cohesive end result.
Through many of the design decisions made in a large home remodel, there is nothing I would change – which is quite surprising nearly two years after project completion! We are planning a smaller remodel to our lower level later this year, and Melissa is the first person I reached out to for help. I highly recommend her for any project, you will love it… and her!”.
