After the mid-week video, we can go back and forth with as many emails as you'd like for the rest of the week.  

At the end of the week, you'll get a final PDF, and I'll turn the Pinterest board over to you. If you need samples, I will get those ordered right away.

You'll end the week knowing what you want, excited for your project to get finished, and feeling confident instead of overwhelmed.

Feel Confident

Using your photographs, I create renderings with a few different options based on your inspirations, home, and skillset. 

I organize ideas for you on a private Pinterest board, with inspirations for colors, materials, and fixtures.

Within a few days, you'll get a short video presentation with all my thoughts to review. I'll clearly explain the opportunities and possibilities. You'll also receive a PDF with the proposals to reference offline.    

see the potential

02

Your questionnaire answers, the photos of your house, and the links to your inspiration are the just the start. I also want to hear what you're dreaming of, how you've gotten to this point, and what you've been overwhelmed by.

I'll email you back as soon as I receive your responses to start the conversation. I'll ask more specific in depth questions to learn how I can help and what you need.

And you can email me whenever you have the time. No meetings, no calls, no stress!

Tell Your Story

three easy steps

So, how does it work?

It all starts with you.

Picture how your home could look.

Get a clear idea of the next steps.

If your project is larger in scope, I strongly recommend finding a local team of designers and architects to not only act as your onsite advocate during construction, but to ensure that all local building codes, installation regulations and permit requirements are met.  

creating architectural plans for youR living spaces or structures like pergolas

choosing furnishings and accessories for your outdoor living spaces

creating detailed plans for grading or retaining walls or hardscaped areas

determining basic planting and hardscape locations

creating new window or door openings in a fascade

selecting doors and windows for existing openings and shapes

creating schematics for installers to use to lay wiring or run new lighting

choosing finishing details like lighting fixtures and door hardware for existing boxes

adding or removing elements like dormers, additions or support elements

choosing paint colors & finish options for exterior siding, roofing, doors & trim

E-Design services are best for projects that do not involve major structural, architectural, or landscaping changes.

A NOTE on project scope

Colleyville, TX

Lindsey

"Mel has helped me on several projects from across the country.  The most recent project has been on the purchase of our first home in Texas.  She has been a lifesaver! She did so much to understand my design style and made it fit so perfectly in to my new home.   I had no idea what my design style was or what I wanted and Mel made all of those worries go away and gave me a house that I can be proud of in return! "
