We'll bring both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paint collections plus over 100 extra large (11" x 17") hand painted paint swatches so you can see how the color will actually look.

Melanie was amazing! She was a huge help as we were in the early stages of a full main floor remodel. For everything from paint colors to furniture layout, she helped us make some great design decisions. I cannot recommend her enough!

- Tracy

We HIGHLY recommend Melanie! We had just moved into our first home, and weren't sure what to expect. Gratefully Melanie did an amazing job helping us identify easy & affordable quick fixes to make our home more beautiful. She also shared helpful insight into DIY projects we could take on, her experiences, and projects we could wait and think on. We loved her insights into setting a color scheme based on what we already had, and how to best mesh different styles with our home. She also suggested several local shops for us to check out!

We will likely use her services again, and can't say enough good things about her support!

– Carlye

Melanie is incredible. She came by our house to give us a consultation for our living room and dining room. She came prepared with wonderful ideas, and was able to answer all of our questions. Melanie takes into account your lifestyle, and is able to give you great options for design that won't change your day to day activities. On top of that, she's so fun and we had a great time working with her!
