Mel helped me with ideas on redoing my front porch. I especially needed help with paint colors. Warm tones, cool tones, sheen, hue—all that just befuddles me. I didn’t want to get one side of the house done and realize I made a horrible costly mistake. She charges by the hour. My project was just a six hour project. She’s also done whole house plans. And she donates one hour of her time from each project to charity. Don’t let the photos of her own home scare you! Mel can do any style and respects and values your ideas. Just need paint colors picked? Fine. Just need a furniture layout? Done. Need a funky family basement? She’s got you covered. A meditative master bedroom retreat? She can Zen you out!
Scrolling through Instagram I liked so many images of Melanie's home. I lived vicariously through her love of color, and I enjoyed commenting on the feels her rooms gave me. Last March, I found myself moving into a new space and sent her a message asking her opinion, and discovered she does e-design. I hired her to help me pull together my current furniture, as well as shop for some new pieces. Melanie really helped push me out of my comfort zone and embrace bold and beautiful patterns and colors. She was so patient with me as I struggled through the process. Every time I open my door after a long day at work, I am embraced by this beautiful design. I feel my own tastes have grown because of Melanie's influence. Thank you, Melanie!
After seeing Mel and her beautiful home designs on Instagram, I decided to ask her for some help. My foyer has been a never ending source of frustration due to some unique features in the space. Mel handled a variety of challenges in an interesting and cool way that I never would have thought of. The color choices, decor, lighting and art were beautiful. The virtual meetings and communications were a breeze. I was delighted to see the progression of the mood board as we continued to work through the design process. I am very happy with where we landed and can’t wait to redecorate my space. Thank you Mel!
