Services

The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live.

Melissa Interior Design provides a person-centred interior design service.

At the forefront of all our designs, is your experience of the space. It is our goal to create a space that not only functions perfectly and looks impeccable but also supports your well-being.

we offer three different levels of service that will deliver your dream home interior, no matter your circumstance.

THE FULL INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICE

This is a full-scale, concept to completion service were we will work in collaboration with your chosen architect, builder, or contracting team to transform your space into a home that feels truly authentic to you.

As no two projects or homes are the same, your project may include selection of interior finishes, designing bespoke architectural details, sourcing fixtures and furniture, purchasing and order management, or all of the above. We understand how daunting a project transforming your home can be and use a thoughtful, streamlined process that puts our client’s experience at the forefront.

THE FURNISH & STYLE SERVICE

Perfect if you are looking to give your place a face lift without going through the lengthy process of a full scale renovation.

Furnish & Style projects include full furnishing and styling, as well as the cosmetic details that truly pull a space together, such as paint, light fixtures, window treatments and hardware. There will be no structural changes at this level of service however, a brand new stylish aestethic is certain.

THE CONSULTANCY SERVICE

Have you been endlessly scrolling Pinterest for inspiration, but have no clue where to start? Do you have mountains of inspiration pictures but no idea where to start? Are you unsure whether your ideas will actually look good in real life?

I can provide you with bespoke consultancy at an hourly design rate to take you from uncertain and nervous to empowered and excited. Perfect if you are redesigning yourself but require some professional guidance to help you make choices and move forward with confidence.

Interior design consultancy is available virtually, in-house or in the studio, whichever suits you best.

THE E-DESIGN OPTION

All services are available in-person or remotely, known as e-design. THIS is a great option for those who may be outside of the North West UK area, or those working with a smaller budget.

Keeping the same tailored approach as in-person clients, e-design gives you flexibility to implement the design plans on your own time and as your budget allows.

E-design clients are responsible for providing accurate measurements of their space, photos and videos, reflected in the budget-friendly price. This is all done via the client portal. E-Design is best suited for clients who are comfortable communicating online, ordering all items themselves from a digital shopping list and implementing the design plans on their own.

E-Design Client Testimonial

Melissa was amazing at listening and understanding what I wanted. She helped to guide me and offered an excellent virtual consultation via Zoom. She stayed within my budget and advised the best solution for my interior.

My design was delivered remotely, through the client portal and I enjoyed having the time to consider, ask questions and make changes. My experience was 10/10 and I could not ask for better. I am looking forward to working with Melissa again for my next home interior design project. I highly recommend her professional and trustworthy services – thank you Melissa!

The Design Process

Our goal is to create a space that is an authentic extension of who you truly are so every design decision is made with you in mind. No two designs are the same because we use your personal taste and style as our North star throughout our design journey together. You will be professionally supported and guided to confidently make the right decisions for your space throughout the design process.

PHASE ONE · DESIGN CONSULTATION

We start with an in-depth consultation to discuss your vision and determine your needs for your space. We’ll chat through your inspiration and personal style, as well as your budget and functional needs.  For local clients, we’ll walk through your space while I take detailed measurements and capture reference photos. For e-design clients, you’ll provide me with measurements, photos and videos of your space. Don’t worry, you will be guided through exactly what to measure and how.

PHASE TWO · DESIGN VISION

During this phase, I take all of the info I’ve discovered about you and your space and use that to craft your design concept. This is known as the “creative direction” for the space. Here you will be presented with a concept mood board to portray our design intent. Together we will discuss and develop these initial creative ideas of how to transform your space to achieve your goals.

PHASE THREE · DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Now the is concept decided on, sourcing begins! This phase is all about the details. During this time I will source/design all of the furniture, fabrics, decor, art, lighting, paint, wallpapers and window treatments to bring our vision to life. You will be presented with finish and fabric samples as well as preliminary plans and technical drawings. There may be some back and forth here, as we develop the final design and plans with which to move forward.

PHASE FOUR · DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION

In this phase we wrap up the creative portion of project and it’s time to execute it in real life! My final deliverables to you will include a detailed specification document, floor plans, technical drawings and a style guide with directions for assembling your space.  For local clients, once all of your items have been delivered and assembled, I will come to personally style your space to ensure the final design is completed perfectly! 

Please Note: Purchasing, order management and installattion is available as an add-on service for clients who want a seamless, full-service experience. 

we offer services to fellow business owners: from adding the finishing touches to your space, to comprehensive interior design, branding and web design packages.
