Here are a selection of lovely comments from some of our happy clients.

“To say Melinda Hartwright is an incredibly talented interior designer is an understatement. I could tell from the moment that I met Melinda that she was passionate about interior design, especially the Hamptons style. During all my communications with Melinda I have found her to be friendly, approachable and knowledgeable with impeccable taste. I engaged Melinda for an in-home Consultation at our home in Cremorne and she provided me with wonderful styling suggestions, working with pieces I already had as well as suggesting items I could acquire.  After the consultation Melinda put together a summary of these suggestions with photos. Melinda has an incredible eye for finding pieces that are classic, elegant and timeless that work within the client’s budget, style and lifestyle. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Melinda”.  Belinda Ryman, Cremorne NSW

“My husband and I bought an ugly duckling of a house. Having no interior design qualifications, I had lots of ideas but was not sure how to put them into action. I was also overwhelmed with what we needed to do. I organised with Mel to come to our house for a 2 hour consultation. I had a list of what I wanted to ask Mel, but she also gave me so many other things to consider which I had not thought of.  It was such a great way of getting advice, recommendations and ideas. I would highly recommend Mel’s services for anyone wanting some guidance”. Alice Campbell-Jones, Burradoo

“Although I had a rough idea of what I wanted, it was good to have a professional come along and point me in the right direction. Melinda offered great advice about colour, design and finishes- and suggested things I would never have considered! Definitely a worthwhile, time-saving investment”. Alison Clark, Bowral

“I met with Melinda just prior to construction commencing on our renovation, and our consultation session with Melinda has proven to be incredibly valuable. Several suggestions Melinda made during the session have really made a significant difference to the end product we were looking for. Melinda’s style and expertise are second to none!Karla Spencer, Little Bay

“Such a lovely experience spending 2 hours with Mel in her beautiful home.  I arrived on Mel’s doorstep with a vision of what I wanted my home to look like.  I had recently moved house and was focussed on redecorating a couple of rooms for a complete and fresh look.  Mel listened to everything I wanted to achieve and patiently kept me focussed (I’m easily distracted when it comes to discussing homewares and sitting in her gorgeous home didn’t help – yes it is as beautiful as we see on her blog!) We chatted easily about my wants, needs and Mel’s suggestions throughout the consultation. Mel then followed up our meeting with a detailed list of suggestions that had been discussed on the day, including pictures and where to look for particular items.  I especially liked that Mel didn’t want me to start from scratch, she was more than happy to work with what I already have (even suggesting moving things to different positions or rooms for better effect/use) and her ideas simply adding to enhance the look.  Thank you Mel for pointing me in the right decorating direction!” Karen, Mosman

“Pinterest, Instagram….I was full of ideas, but overcome by indecision.  Mel was able to focus me and provide me with the clarity I needed about my home.  With her innate style, instinctive eye and years of experience, Mel provided me with beautiful recommendations and expert guidance on all of my decorating dilemmas.  I absolutely loved meeting Mel, showing her through my home and incorporating all of her gorgeous advice.  The results have been really beautiful”. Alice McDonough, Mosman

My husband and I have recently renovated an old home and opened up the floor plan to create several living areas. We were struggling with how to furnish and decorate the space. We wanted to create separate zones, namely a formal sitting area, a family friendly lounge room and a 12 seat dining room all centered around a central fire place. We needed to acquire new furniture but also wanted to incorporate our family’s antique pieces.
Mel helped us to identify the key spaces, dimensions for furniture, artwork, and lighting. We found the use a mood board particularly useful as it enabled us to visualize the configuration of each area as well as providing examples of suitable pieces. The mood board also allowed us to go online and discuss the pieces. We actually managed to purchase almost all of the items in Sydney in a single trip.

Mel helped us develop a layout that would maintain a cohesive feel and flow as we moved through the house. We are so happy with the outcome and have the functional and stylish spaces we hoped for.

From our experience, Mel adds value to couples who reach road blocks on design aspects. It’s is a lot cheaper than marriage counselling!” Ben & Ana Smedley
