"Melissa staged a house for me that was quite a challenge. The house was very large, but she worked within the client's budget and it made a huge difference. The seller was very pleased with the results. Melissa was very professional and staged the house in a day, just in time to have it photographed for my listing"

“I had never worked with a designer before, and Melissa made it so easy. She really listened to how we needed the room to function, how we wanted the room to feel and what we wanted to get out of the process. The tools that she uses to gather information and to share her ideas are very user friendly and easy to navigate. She pretty much nailed the design on her first pass, and she makes the process so fun and not scary. I highly recommend Curate & Design

Melissa has an incredible design-eye and was so easy to work with! She was able to take the vague ideas for what our new kitchen could be, and turn them into concrete design recommendations. She then consulted with us for feedback on her initial designs and seamlessly integrated our thoughts into the final design ideas. She helped us pick out materials, appliances and cabinets - and even worked with a salesperson at the hardware store to get quotes on materials. She was a great partner to our contractor and made sure the work was completed as intended (which is no easy task). Melissa understands the refurb process from soup to nuts and is both a great designer and a great partner. I would absolutely recommend Melissa!

"I like to think I have an eye for design but when I worked with Melissa, her professional eye brought a whole new look to two of my rooms. From wall art placement in a bedroom, to a total reconfiguration of a office/workout/meditation room. Since we live on opposite sides of the country (I live in California and she is in VT) we worked closely in messenger and text.  She provided thorough drawings and was quick to respond to my questions. I will use her again when its time for the next update!"

"Melissa has been awesome to work with . The process from start to finish was really easy and Melissa delivered a design very quickly. I was blown away by how closely her design matched  what I would consider my style, including pieces I had in my cart on various websites in the past. I had to double check what I had sent her in the questionnaire to see if I had included particular points or if she was just that good. She's just that good.  I am excited to do more rooms with Melissa!"

Melissa rescued us when we most needed it. We were exhausted at the end of a six month renovation - the big decisions had taken months, and bringing the rooms together with all the small details and finishing touches including new accents and furniture was simply beyond our reach. Melissa visited once to see how we live (kids, dogs, mayhem) and immediately went to work using existing and new items to add the warmth and personality that brought it all together. Trying to do all of that on my own would’ve taken months, but Melissa had it sourced, delivered and installed in just two weeks. We are so impressed and happy - and we receive compliments every time we have guests! - The MacLeods, Jericho
