"We brought Melissa in mid-way through our main floor reno in the Fall of 2017. She helped us pull everything together by first affirming or improving the choices we'd made so far and then filling in all of the gaps (many of which we hadn't even thought of) such as casing and door handles. She was great! Really listened to our preferences and came with choices that matched well right off the bat. Later, she supported us with additional choices when we second-guessed the backsplash. In the end, we went with her initial recommendation and it is lovely. The final result is stunning and we are incredibly happy.”
"Melissa at Inspired Interiors was very effective at not only capturing our vision but building around it to enhance the final design. The end result proved to be fantastic. Her design was thorough and well detailed and made for a smooth construction process. Melissa is thoughtful and professional and her passion for design was apparent. We would highly recommend Inspired Interiors.”
"We hired Melissa at Inspired Interiors as our interior designer and as PM on the project. Right from the get go Melissa was attentive and professional. We looked at three other firms but thought Melissa's approach and design ideas gelled with our vision. Melissa was very conscious of our budget and final costs were within the original estimate, which was fantastic. During the design and reno process Melissa was available daily to answer any questions or concerns we had. We were very impressed with her arranging for, management and daily monitoring of the trades and progress of the work. We would highly recommend Inspired Interiors and plan on working with Melissa again in the future.”
"Hiring Melissa was the best decision we made when we developed our basement. She provided excellent advice and design consultations throughout the project. We really appreciate her patience and skill in dealing with us and with the general contractor. Melissa developed a series of designs and also advised us on colours, materials and finishes. She went out of her way to bring a range of accessories over to our house to let us decide which ones we wanted to keep. I would definitely recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a great interior designer.”

"I hired Melissa to help with a complete renovation of a 1950's house. From start to finish she worked within my budget and worked with me to create my dream home design around my needs and tastes. She offers turn key services with a wide variety of professional contractors to complete the work. I will be using her company again for the exterior of the house this spring. I would absolutely recommend Melissa and Inspired Interiors for your design needs of any size.”

"We recently finished our basement and hired Melissa to design and plan out our space. She did everything from the initial CAD drawing to space layout to colour selection and I can say she did an amazing job. We are very happy with her. I am a very skeptical person by nature and typically don't see value in things like "Designers". My wife and I have built houses, done renos and are generally handy people when it comes to construction. Melissa made lots of suggestions and brought up lots of thing we hadn't thought of. I can honestly say that it was/is well worth having Melissa design for us. She's very knowledgeable, patient and a very nice person. She just may have changed my mind about designers!!”

"My husband and I both felt that Melissa was very professional, she "got us" and had some really great ideas we would not have thought of. If you are looking for someone who will work WITH you to realize the potential of your space, Melissa is that person.”
"Melissa helped us navigate the task of remodelling our en suite bathroom. After taking time to fully understand the concept we were generally looking for, she provided excellent suggestions and options for vanity design, sizes, colours and fixtures. Melissa provided the highest level of knowledge, skill and professionalism throughout the whole process, we are thrilled with the result and will be calling Melissa for our next major home reno project.”

"Melissa did an excellent job in helping transform our kitchen from the 1980's to the present date. She was always willing to take our suggestions and work with us and in the end we ended up with a beautiful space that I now love to work in. I would totally recommend her to anyone looking at renovating their kitchen or bathroom!”
