Discovering a love for design and textiles at a young age, Melissa was influenced by her mother who worked in the fashion industry in New York City. Melissa’s interests expanded from fashion to interior design, and she became a prop stylist for catalogs and editorials in magazines, Pottery Barn Catalog, Country Living magazine, Food and Wine magazine, to name a few. She has been in the interior design field for the past 14 years working on the east and west coast and presently in Hawaii.
Melissa's design style is influenced by modern and contemporary clean lines, mid-century simplicity, as well as the rustic and unrefined, creating a sense of harmony between the old and new. Form and function dictates how the home gets decorated taking into consideration her clients' lifestyle and values. In short Melissa looks for what brings joy, comfort and beauty to the home. Using natural materials, natural fibers, textures, and colors of nature her interiors have the sense of timelessness.
A thoughtfully designed home provides a place for inspiration and expression. She compares designing a home to the process of writing, saying, "It is a distillation and refining process, just like wiritng and finding just the right word to express yourself so it is the same for finding an object, a piece of furniture or art."
Extensive global travel informs Melissa's work. One way she gets to know a place is by looking for the unexpected, whether it is in nature or shopping for one-of-a-kind items in flea markets and antique shops around the world. She presently resides on Maui where she is building a family compound.
