"Melissa is an amazing interior designer.

She evaluated our space, took our thoughts and ideas, and brought them to life. From initial consult to story-boarding, presenting a million options, and then helping us weed them down to the perfect options. Finally through to delivery and even positioning .She had creative ideas and inspired us to go out of our comfort zone in certain aspects too. I'd recommend you contact her to discuss some amazing ideas for your business or home. You won't be disappointed."
