It was great meeting with you Melanie.
It was so refreshing to have such a collaborative experience that feels like the perfect amount of hand-holding and independence.

"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."

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

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.

Thank you, Melanie!

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

– Starr

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!
– Jean
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.
