"When we moved into our 4 bed-room home, we were overwhelmed because we had no idea how to decorate it and where to put what. We were referred to Melyssa by a friend and are so glad we found her! We were so impressed with Melyssa's ability to form a vision for each room and how she was able to execute that vision by repositioning furniture, suggesting paint color, selecting window treatments and utilizing wall space and shelving to display decor. We also hired Melyssa to go furniture shopping with us and were so happy we did because she recommended pieces that were beautiful yet cost effective. We really can't say enough about the amazing job she did with our place. Thanks to her, we now have a home and not just a house filled with random furniture and decor. Can't wait to hire her again for round two!"

"My girlfriend and I asked Melyssa to help us settle into our new place in Waltham. I have to admit that at first, I wasn't completely sold on the idea of bringing someone in to help us, but I quickly started to look forward to our time with Melyssa. Melyssa was so much fun to work with! She was always interested in hearing about our ideas and made us feel comfortable and excited about exploring our intuitions. She gave us lots of ideas to play with and all the tools we needed to make our apartment a happy, cozy place to come home to. The place feels like ours because we (Melyssa, my girlfriend, and I) never stopped the process of getting to know each other. We told stories and discussed books and all of that somehow worked its way into our apartment. She helped my girlfriend and I find a way to make our apartment express the comfort, closeness, and love that we feel for each other. We've already recommended her to several friends and hope that we can keep in touch!"

"As a retail shop and service business we thrive when our clients step into our space and feel like they've come home. Melyssa far exceeded our expectations when she created a visually appealing space that not only increased our merchandise sales but made ever member of our community feel welcome in our store."

" I LOVE my 'new' office! You have such a great spirit and your playful/positive energy is contagious! I look forward to working with you again."

"Melyssa was highly recommended to me by a friend who saw me living in a nice North End condo furnished with college-era and mismatched furniture, and lots of clutter. Right away I knew I'd love her: she was bursting with ideas from our very first meeting, and was eager to get started. Over the course of the next few months, Melyssa presented unique and appropriate ideas for refurnishing the apartment, and was always open to feedback and requests. She was just the kick in the butt I needed to get started. Today I'm nearly finished with the updates, and I know that I'll always have a friend and counselor I can bounce ideas of off and solicit opinions. Melyssa is wonderful to work with, very responsive, and has an amazing eye. What a find!"

"We brought Melyssa on board in a consulting capacity in late 2009. We have a very successful, 25 store specialty retail sporting goods equipment business, but have been less than successful is merchandising and selling related apparel.
Melyssa was charged with the responsibility for establishing and implementing merchandising protocols and working with our store management team. Over a period of six months, Melyssa was able to help us re-launch what had been an eye-sore within our stores. Most importantly, she was able to show our store staff that the apparel business provided significant opportunities for them to increase their business and enhance the level of customer satisfaction within their stores.
What impressed us most about Melyssa was her ability to take on a project where she had little experience; identify the problem and its root causes and identify and implement a solution quickly and with consensus. We’ve used outside specialists in the past with little success. Melyssa far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to enlisting her services again in the future."

"Working with Melyssa was a great experience. She listened closely to my ideas and was able to synthesize them into a design aesthetic that is beautiful, functional and affordable. It was a lot of fun to work with Melyssa and I would recommend her to anyone."
