“We recently purchased a beautiful house and needed a team to help us make our new house a home. Melanie was an absolute dream to work with. From the very beginning she was extremely accommodating to our vision, needs and set budget. Our project primarily focused on furniture, paint and window treatment selections and a few light fixture replacements. Melanie knows what she’s doing and I'd recommend her services to anyone needing a designer’s touch. A1 service and execution!”

“We bought an older home and knew the dark, galley kitchen had to go. Starting from a blank slate can be intimidating and overwhelming, but Melanie made it the opposite -- enjoyable and easy. From helping us develop a style palette, to choosing materials, to creating the technical drawings that our contractors needed to install cabinets, Melanie came through in a big way for us!”
