Melanie was named Top 10 Redesigner of the Year by RESA® in 2020 and 2021.



with a Certified True Color Expert™

The paint chip is never what it seem to be, is it?  Although the chips are the actual color, they do not represent what your walls will actually look like when painted. Not. At. All. And they certainly do not tell you how well it will or won't work with your furnishings.

Our highly-acclaimed, international CERTIFIED TRUE COLOUR EXPERT™ training and certification taught it all. How undertones work, which undertone goes with which, how lighting affects paint and what to expect it to look like once the paint is on the walls.


Between wall color, cabinets, counters, trim, flooring, and furnishing, Melanie can help you pull it all together and make your home look and feel cohesive. Schedule a Paint Color Consultation today.

A guiding hand through a stressful process makes it all easier.

Clients, Brent and Angie, hired Melanie to guide them through their main floor remodel. The remodel included kitchen, dining, living room, power room and entry way. They first enlisted her help with an Home Updating Consultation. During this Consultation, she helped them discover their vision, colors, goals, budget and she gave them her professional resources. She met with them every couple months during the project until completion. She took the guesswork (and pure agony) out and helped them make smart decisions on cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, fixtures, lighting, flooring and wall and trim colors. After the architectural elements had been selected, Melanie helped with space planning, furniture selection and fabric selections. The result was a process that made decision-making easy leading to a cohesive, relaxing and beautiful space.

Thank you SO much for coming by. I loved all of your ideas and they were very cost effective too. I am excited to try all of the things you suggested. And the furniture arrangement for the mancave was a great as well. I’m very excited to try the paint colors too. You left me feeling motivated!

– Alicia

Thank you, Melanie!

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

– Starr

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

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

Melanie is great! She pointed out many design and color details regarding updating my home that I hadn't thought about. She gave me great ideas about countertop colors and finishes that would work with my current cabinets. She also provided me with some helpful websites to find cabinet hardware. I really feel like I have a good design plan now and I can move forward with updating my kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Thank you Melanie!!  – Teresa

"Happy Place recently did a color consultation at our new house. Thank Goodness! The colors I wanted for the house and the colors I thought were close, would have been vastly different.

Happy Place saved me a lot of money in paint and time. Melanie was able to walk me through the undertones of the paints I chose and show me better options that worked with my lighting and trim/floor colors. I got the color affect I wanted and it turned out great!!  – Angela

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
