Melanie is a true professional and very talented…

After a complete renovation of our home, we needed to hire an interior decorator to help us with the decor. Our architect introduced us to Melanie Serra. Melanie is a true professional and very talented. During the initial design consult she demonstrated great “listening skills” and was very open to our needs and concerns. She immediately understood our style and helped us enhance our modern décor. After previewing our floor plan she provided us with options in how to use and repurpose our existing furniture. She also helped us purchase new furniture, fabrics and accessories. She designed beautiful window treatments and selected the perfect window shades to compliment each room. She was proficient and made each step of the process seamless. We are thrilled with the results! Melanie is a keeper we are going to continue to enlist her services.

I love the custom window treatment…

Melanie, I wanted to let you know that I love the custom window treatment. It looks terrific and makes the stairwell feel finished. I love both the texture of the fabric and the border. Thank you so much for the transformation – I am so happy with every single change. You provided the exact face lift the house needed and we are very grateful. If you ever need a reference – I would be happy to provide.

Stylishly decorated…

Stylishly decorated” are the words I longed to read in the real estate sales agents description, instead I read “Lots of potential.” From that point on I knew I would get help in decorating my home. When our family moved from Ohio to Atlanta, I began investigating my options. I found Melanie Serra thru a website search while still in Ohio. I was drawn to her unique concept of starting with what you already have and making it work beautifully in your new space. Melanie was deliberate about understanding our lifestyle and tastes. She developed, with my input, a clear, stylish vision of how to transform our new home. Finally, she freely shared her contacts and resources, to make her vision a reality. Working with Melanie, our home was reinvented and we confidently welcome friends and family to enjoy our new space too.
