"Melissa has brought so much inspiration as we've jumped into our first home purchase and had so many ideas of how to make it our own. Her advice helped narrow down what is best to tackle first, she's called out colors that could go wrong, she's given good gut reactions to furnishing/lighting purchases before I jumped on that sale! She can tackle the small detail to massive projects."

"Melissa helped me switch from overwhelmed to organized and cohesive."

Heather N.

"Melissa has such a special ability to provide vision for our projects regardless of the question or scope. We are always impressed with how she balances our own unique style with the function for our family when providing suggestions. We have also gained confidence because of Melissa’s continued support."
