Full Service Design

Melissa has been an interior decorator for both my office and my home.  She was instrumental in formulating and executing the complete redesign of my medical office.  The change we envisioned was an office that was warm and comforting.  The colors and designs have provided such a calming effect that our patients continue to compliment us after more than 6 years.  My home has also benefited from her expertise.

Melissa is enthusiastic and dependable.  She is sensitive to cost concerns.  She was able to facilitate additional recommendations to other vendors who were also of her high quality standards.

I have no reservations in recommending Melissa for any design services.

Hi Melissa,

Thank you so much for the time you spent here at my place yesterday.  I really appreciate the work you did and enjoyed meeting and getting to know you, too.

I’m just amazed at how much my place changed and how great it looks.  I can’t wait to get started with getting the things on my list that will continue to create a livable and very pleasant place for me as well as for my friends and family when they come to visit :-).

Resale-Ready® Real Estate Staging

To my new decorator Melissa – what a blessing that all the work you did for my clients (and me) is.  Anshu has worked a lot since then.  The hutch is gone, paint has been touched up, Flamenco girls are up.

The gardener met with Anshu this morning and will do the front yard on Tuesday and more.

We had 2 showings this afternoon and both sets of buyers made numerous spontaneous comments.  More this afternoon than total over the past 4 months.  My very grateful thanks.  I want you to help all of my clients.

Hi Melissa,

This is a belated thank you for your color consultation (and decorating) help on the 5th.  I am happy with the Natural Linen we chose and am eager to see how it all looks when the painting is completed.  The painters will be starting on the 25th.  I can’t tell you what a relief it has been to have the color chosen.  Previously, I had spent many conflicted hours in the Benjamin Moore store trying to choose colors and found the experience exasperating and futile.  After your consultation, I walked into the BM store, asked for a small can of the paint and a brush and went home and started painting Natural Linen samples in various locations in my condo.  It was the shortest time I’d ever spent in the paint store and it was so easy! What a difference than my earlier trips to BM!  The feeling of having the color decision made has been an enormous relief. Thank you so much!
