WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"We had the pleasure to work with Melinda on the renovation of our home. When we first met her, we were impressed with her professionalism, keen eye for details, and all around knowledge of the many different aspect of home renovations, above and beyond what we thought was the "normal" range of expertise of an interior designer. More than anything, we were really impressed with her ability to truly listen to us and come back with solutions that fit our needs. During the long process of home reno, its highs and lows, Melinda has been a steadfast support, helping with big and small decisions, offering options and different solutions that fit our budget and our taste. I would recommend Melinda to anybody who is looking for an extremely qualified and professional interior designer!"

PALLISER CONDO RENOVATION
"My husband and I have been married almost fifty years and finally downsized a couple years ago from a house in Winnipeg to a condo in Calgary. The condo hasn’t been updated since it was built 24 years ago. Our space wasn’t functional and needed work. My husband and I have different tastes, so we needed third party intervention!
We met with Melinda to discuss our needs; we thought Melinda to be very intuitive and liked her straight away. She is personable and a great listener…a wonderful skill to posses especially when apposing ideas are evident.
We redid the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, fireplace, lighting and more. We have a lot of furniture that needed to be incorporated in the design plan. Melinda offered a lot of great ideas and has impeccable taste. She gained our trust immediately.
Sometimes she agreed with my husband and sometimes with me; she has the patience of Job and was tactful and very capable. She was quick to respond to all our questions and concerns.
It was important to Melinda that we were both happy…she knew our tastes and made everything work superbly. We had tight time lines and she made the process painless…we could not have done this without Melinda. We were away during construction and Melinda kept a watchful eye; making sure everything went well. When we came back we moved into a comfortable and attractive space we enjoy showing off. It provides us with functional beauty.
We’ve been in our new space a couple of months now and love it. Our experience with Melinda was excellent in every sense of the word.
If you are looking for someone who is creative, talented, tuned in to your needs and just lovely to be around Melinda is who you are looking for! Yes, we highly recommend her!"

"I have been working with Melinda and Heather for almost 3 years now and would highly recommend them. My goal was, and is, to renovate my 1100 sq. ft. home one room at a time. For me it has been the perfect working relationship. Melinda and Heather are very professional and approachable. I know my project is small compared to many and slow moving (my choice for budget reasons) yet they never make me feel like my project is unimportant. Emails and phone calls are always responded to the same day or next day at the absolute latest. The communication is great. They will consult with me in person or via Email (whatever works for me) with pictures, examples, options and ideas. It is very efficient. They have given me great advice on where to save money and when it’s worth the investment to splurge. They were also most helpful in resolving issues I had with a contractor I had selected. It was great to have their knowledge and experience of what should be expected and how the finishing work should be done. I have since used some trades people that they recommended and have been extremely pleased with the quality of the work done. I think what is really important is that Melinda and Heather very quickly understood what my “style” was and were able to gently push me outside my box. Just enough. In short order, I knew that they understood my tastes and how we live and I could trust their opinions. I know that had I done all of this on own, there is no way I would have selected some of the color or pattern combinations that I now have and absolutely love!! It has all just come together perfectly. My home doesn’t look like a show home. It looks like a lived in and inviting family home – but with great style and functionality. I look around at the changes we’ve made and it makes me smile."
"Melinda and Heather are a dream to work with! They were patient with all of my questions and delivered absolute top-notch customer service. In the design world I am paralysed by choice – there are too many samples, styles and paint colours to choose from. I start thinking of big books of fabric swatches and panic starts to set in. Needless to say when I was faced with the task of having to paint and furnish our entire home I was very intimidated. Melinda and Heather were magic. They helped us see the potential in our home and made the project easy and enjoyable. Through working with them we not only saved time and money, but also had peace of mind throughout the entire decision making process. I cannot recommend them highly enough!"

SUNNYSIDE RENOVATION &
SPORTS THERAPY CLINIC
"Melinda and her staff have helped me in so many ways! She designed my kitchen lay-out (which is the biggest kitchen in a small space I have ever seen!), helped me pick finishings and paint colors, helped arrange furniture… and that’s just my house! She also designed my office space and did a fantastic job! I will never ever try to pick my own paint colors again! She is very intuitive about what I like and what suits my tastes. My husband and I are forever grateful!"
