Mel McDaniel Design: Services
You can have the space you've dreamed of! Create the beautiful, unique space or home you’ve always wanted, with the help of a professional, from start to finish.
Do you want a big reveal? It can be great fun!

Work begins with an initial meeting to identify your goals. Ideas are then presented and tweaked, based on your feedback and tastes. Purchasing and procurement of all goods happens next, followed by professional installation.

In design (as in life) "it's all connected," so this is where each decision about fabric, sofas, rugs, lighting, (and more!), are intertwined. The creative process is often an exciting learning experience, and the reward is that very moment when you are using your new space. A room is not finished until people are in it and using it!

($2,000 deposit requested after initial meeting, to book your project.)
Do you wish you had beautiful custom design boards so you can make over a space? Perhaps you are looking for inspiration with color and style, because you want to shop and implement on your own.

Design boards can be the beginning of a wonderful new space, while you stay in total control of the timing and cost of the project. The design boards are digital, and will be emailed to you along with notes and product source information.
