Melinda Hartwright - Interior Designer
Melinda Hartwright is an interior designer based in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Melinda’s 20+ years experience building and renovating her own projects, allows her to provide invaluable insight and expertise to her clients' projects whether new builds, renovating or simply decorating.
Her much lauded and emulated signature style offers a refreshing perspective on traditional American and European design and how it can be reinterpreted for Australian homes. It is at once classic and timeless, elegant and chic, but always liveable and welcoming.
Melinda's obsession and creative influence is borne of an enduring love of American decorating, design and architecture. She considers herself a neo-trad (new traditionalist), reinventing traditional interiors with a fresh, contemporary interpretation. Her lifelong love of blue and white inspires her designs, and the results are homes that balance beauty and function, where colour and pattern play a leading role, and where practicality and elegance are combined with ease.
As a working mum of three, Melinda believes a stylish home and kids need not be mutually exclusive, but that you can create a beautiful home where children are comfortable and welcome but where design and beauty are never compromised.
Melinda provides a refreshing perspective on each project taking into account her client's lifestyle, goals and budget coupled with an intuitive understanding of their needs and personal tastes.
From humble beginnings on a decorating blog, Melinda’s interior design business and reputation has grown substantially over the years. She has been featured in many publications and continues to share her signature style through a new range of home accessories.
