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

One Room

One Room design 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. Perfect for those who are starting with an empty space, or looking to completely transform an existing room.

Full Home

Whether you’re looking to refresh your rental apartment or your own property, I can help transform your space into a home that feels authentic to you. While we won’t be moving walls or rebuilding, this service includes full furnishing, styling and cosmetic details for each room in your space.

Consulting

Have you been endlessly scrolling Pinterest for inspiration, but have no clue where to start? I can provide you with bespoke consultancy at an hourly design rate. Perfect if you are redesigning yourself but require some professional guidance to help you make choices and move forward with confidence.

The Design Process

Throughout your interior design journey, you will be professionally supported and guided to confidently make the right decisions for your space.

PHASE ONE · DESIGN CONSULTATION

The design process starts 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, I will guide you through exactly what to measure and how.

PHASE TWO · DESIGN VISION

During this phase, I take all of the pieces of info I’ve discovered about you and your space and use that to craft your design concept. This is what 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 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 project and it’s time to execute it in real life! My final deliverables to you will include a detailed specification document, visual 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 install is available as an add-on service for busy clients who want a seamless, full-service experience. 

E-Design Option

All services are available in-person or remotely, known as e-design. E-Design 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.

How it Works

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 trustworhty services – thank you Melissa!

Designer Testimonial

Melissa is super easy to work with and makes my life easy when I’ve got so much other work on. I am no good on a computer, I much prefer meeting with clients, going out to showrooms and being on site. Having someone who is a whizz at creating mood boards and floor plans has really freed me up to do what I am best at.

Melissa saves me so much time and makes my design presentations look amazing! She’s the best.
