“My wife and I have done 3 major projects with Melissa over the past 10 years; a major remodel, a complete restoration of an antique house, and the construction of a new home. We think Melissa’s real talent was being able to tease out from us our wants, likes and dislikes, and translate those fragments of ideas into a unifying vision for the project. She also has the ability to add a holistic perspective, which is rare as most designers stop at the interior, and she added as much or more value in designing the major elements of the house; the kitchen, the bathrooms, the trim, moldings as she did in the color schemes and interior furnishings. She is also very versatile as each project was very different stylistically, but each flowed together consistently, and as our tastes changed and evolved over time, she was there to help us find what we were looking for. All of our projects were a huge success and we would never attempt another one, of any size, without her. “

Of the hundreds of decisions we made in our home renovations, the best one was to work with Melissa. She helped us avoid major mistakes and opened our minds to choices we had never considered. Melissa tuned in to our lifestyle and to the era and décor of our house, steering us to choices that are unique to us and our house. She is the ideal decorator: calm, cheerful, responsive, efficient, combining practicality with great taste. She held our hands as we nervously chose a stain for our hardwood floors that turned out to be lustrous and beautiful. Where we were stymied about cabinetry, counters, hardware, lighting and tile, Melissa narrowed our choices and made it easy. Her vast experience enabled her to recommend solutions we never could have imagined. Melissa was sensitive about how much we could stretch our imaginations before being overwhelmed; she knew when to introduce ideas and when to back off. Also, she helped us deal with our contractor successfully when there were differences of opinion. We would work with her again in a heartbeat – it’s such fun! And, our home is so much more beautiful and comfortable because of her help.
