Melinda Hartwright Interiors is a high end boutique interior design and decoration business based in the Southern Highlands of NSW, about 90 mins south of Sydney. Melinda Hartwright’s signature style is one which combines a timeless and classic American influenced aesthetic with a modern sensibility, reinventing traditional and creating beautiful homes that are at once elegant and relaxed, luxurious and casual, refined and liveable, but always warm and welcoming. Her design skills have been developed through her work as a magazine stylist, decorator, design blogger and interior designer, and through many years renovating and building her own projects. Melinda’s fresh interpretation of traditional American decorating and design allows this much admired style to be reinterpreted for Australian homes, allowing clients to achieve the look in their homes with effortless ease and suitability.

Melinda helps clients create comfortable, family friendly but always classically elegant interiors, which reflect their tastes and suit their lifestyle and budget. Her interiors are characterised by a unique balance of colour, texture, style and comfort, mixed with a touch of glamour and a dash of pretty. Melinda is well known for her lifelong passion for and love of decorating with blue and white. A timeless and classic colour palette that she masterfully applies in all shades and combinations.

Melinda’s unique style is equally suited to country, city or coastal homes, large or small, and her skill is in her ability to create bespoke interiors that speak to the surroundings, location and individual client requirements. As a mother of three young children, Melinda has a solid understanding of the needs and demands of families and their homes, but insists that style and elegance need not be sacrificed for practicality and comfort.

As an experienced renovator herself, Melinda has a well trained eye when it comes to reviewing homes and assessing their potential for renovation, masterly conceiving ways of adding value, beauty and function, while always taking into consideration budget and desired outcome.
