Melissa managed our entire home renovation in the states while we were living overseas. Her communication with us, budget consciousness and creativity were of top caliber. She worked hard to make our project a success, listening to our desires and advocating on our behalf throughout the entire process. Melissa is a hard worker who is easy to collaborate with and a great person! We recommend her highly and really appreciate her expertise and dedication.

This is the first time I have worked with an interior designer and I lucked out. Melissa and Instinctive Design are true pros! Melissa helped me figure out my "point of view" and then immediately went to work to make it a reality. I come home to my zen-like condo and have no doubt that I could not have achieved these results without the expertise of Melissa. Not to mention that she exceeded expectations in budget control with her creative thinking and ideas. Without hesitation, please consult Melissa -- you won't regret it!

Melissa can make anything look good. She has exquisite taste, a wonderful sense of design and makes rooms look elegant. And her prices! She does Buckhead work on a Cabbagetown budget. Seriously. You won't be sorry if you use this service.

I am proud to say that I have worked with Melissa on over 30 projects over the last 2 years. She is a fresh new talent. Always attentive to clients needs and preferences, but also knows the do's and don't's of general building codes and permitting processes.No job is too big or too small, from residential to commercial. I am always proud to attach her name to my projects.

After a total disaster with another designer, I finally found Melissa. She is laid back, a great listener, and very easy to work with. She comes up with all kinds of creative ideas, both budget-friendly and high-end, depending on your needs. She doesn't try to force her decisions on you, but goes out of her way to think of ways to make your ideas come to life. She has helped me with a few design glitches left over by the previous "designer," and I can't wait to work with her in the future on my kitchen and master bath designs.

I interviewed 2 designers. Melissa won because she LISTENED to what I wanted. She has great style. Her expertise won us a spread in the Atlanta Business Chronicle for bathroom renovation in 2008. I have to say that Melissa went beyond the call of duty in helping me with a personal project as well. If anyone wants to see how her vision became reality, I am glad to show you her artistry. She is a true professional with passion.

I fell in love with Melissa's method of design on our first meeting. She designed our very fabulous, chic, and functional kitchen. She was very attentive to what we related to her with regard to our expectations. She knew the appropriate questions to ask in order to fine-tune her design. She paid attention to our budget and desires, and designed the perfect kitchen for us. We will definitely use her again in the future.

We've worked with several designers over the years, and Instinctive Design's approach to customer service is outstanding. You could very well say unique. Melissa does what she says, really cares when the subs and work rooms inevitably get behind, and does everything she can to make it right. Oh, yeah, she has style, too!

I had a vision in my head and many magazine clippings as inspiration. Melissa helped me put it all together and found the resources to turn my dream into reality.

Instinctive Design is a great name for this service. The designs are forward thinking using materials that are current with the industry allowing the design to be fresher and not specifically cued into 2008 thus keeping the design current longer into the future. As a supplier of product I get a chance to see many designers work. Melissa's work is magazine quality work allowing the personality of her client to show in the design. It is a fresh approach and a fun process. She is one of the designers that really gets "it" when it comes to developing an inviting functional design. I believe that she does not only collect projects. She collects friendships in the process. She is a delight to work with.

Melissa has a terrific sense of design. She also has the perfect personality to work with you to create the best kitchen or bath for you and your needs. I have worked with her multiple times and have been impressed every time. I will use her again in the future.
