PRAISE FROM PAST CLIENTS
"We hired m.e. design after having the stressful task of picking everything (layout, paint, kitchen, lighting, etc) for our new build. Melissa was so helpful in bringing out our particular style in the home, that it turned out even better then we could have imagined. Melissa was very accommodating to work with, and was able to do amazing work with our limited budget. We were instantly drawn to her friendly personality, and professionalism."

"Melissa has a tremendous eye for detail and isn't satisfied until everything is perfect. i have consulted with Melissa on various occasions and her advice is always inspiring and her design vision is on point with where the latest trends are headed. I would recommend her if you are looking for high end design with detailed finishes."
"Melissa made our renovation experience enjoyable and rewarding and for that we will be forever grateful. We work with clients everyday that always discuss the horrors of renovating and when first embarking on this journey had their voices in our heads. We started off on our own and as we began to get bogged down in the decisions being asked of us from many different contractors we began questioning our decision to renovate period. After speaking with several designers, Melissa stood out as extremely competent, passionate, up to date and a pretty damn cool chick. We began working together and from that moment forward things changed. Immediately she narrowed down succinctly our tastes and cut out all of the noise. She worked tirelessly at gathering all the required information and laying out efficient and timely presentations whenever the next decision was needed to move our process along. She would even speak directly with our contractors to ensure the right vision was conveyed and understood. I can honestly say the end result of our significant renovation was pure satisfaction and a huge part of that was because of Melissa and her contacts."

"My condo was in desperate need of new flooring, paint and living room furniture. I was never going to tackle this problem on my own. A helpful friend suggested that I meet with Melissa and see if she could help me out. This one hour meeting was the best thing I ever did. Melissa took charge and soon after we had picked out new flooring and paint. This was so painless as her ability to know what would work for me and my two pets was spot on. In the span of three weeks I had new tile, carpet and a freshly painted condo that looks fabulous. The contractors that Melissa used did excellent work and were very hardworking and professional. Melissa was there to oversee the work when I was out of town. Melissa also sourced living room furniture for me and will be helping me with the final feathering of the nest. I can't say enough about how great it is working with Melissa. She has an excellent sense of what will work, listens to your needs and desires, and will work hard to stay within your budget"
