I received more from you in our two hours together than eight people combined that I’ve paid sufficient money to. You are an inspiration!

"We need fresh ideas and we can figure out details. There are things, like the golden oak cabinets where we would like opinions about options, to either confirm or disprove our ideas."

"I need to have fresh ideas/inspiration, a partnership to confirm ideas, and down to earth/practical approach to decorating that fits with our lifestyle."

"Instead of you making the ultimate decision, I like that it's a collaborative process. I also like that there seems to be a real desire on your part to empower me as the client to understand how to make my own design decisions, instead of making them for me."


We are thrilled to announce that Happy Place Interiors has been honored with the Silver award in the Star Tribune Minnesota's Best Awards! This incredible recognition is a testament to the commitment of helping homeowners create spaces that bring joy and inspiration.

What makes this award even more special is that it's voted on by the wonderful people of Minnesota themselves. Your support and trust mean the world.

Thank you, Minnesota, for your support and for allowing Happy Place to be a part of your lives.

It was so great meeting with you Melanie. After several design consults, it was so refreshing to have such a collaborative experience that feels like the perfect amount of
hand-holding and independence.
— Martha

Our one-on-one consultation with Melanie was wonderful! She worked with us on designing every aspect of this room. It really fits the style that we were going for and she has continued to be there every step of the way as we finish designing the room. My husband and I are both very happy and can't wait to work with her on other rooms in our house!  

– Megan

Thank you so much for your vision! Honestly I am now excited for the first time about this house and can finally see a way forward.  
– Imelda

"I felt so comfortable sharing my home and its nuances with Melanie, and she knew exactly how to encourage and inspire me. I will refer to her as my home décor therapist going forward! Her service was exactly what I needed — an objective view of where I am and where I want to go, including current needs with an eye on resale. I now have a focus with a plan and process."
– Jean

Thank you, Melanie!

I was a little intimidated to have someone come out, but your openess, enthusiasm and practical tips were awesome.

– Starr

Hi Melanie-- I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You blew my expectations away and it truly feels like a home now. I appreciate your hard work more than you know.   – Sam
