Exterior Design

and you can stop feeling overwhelmed

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 structures like decks or pergolas

choosing furnishings and accessories for your outdoor living spaces

selecting plants or creating detailed plans for grading, retaining walls or hardscape areas

determining inspirations for basic planting and hardscape FINISHES

creating new window or door openings in a fascade

selecting door and window styles for existing openings and shapes

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

choosing finishing details like door hardware or light fixtures 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

great for e-design:

not recommended for e-design:

Please also note: I am by no means of measure a landscape designer!  I can help you determine the inspirations for your hardscape areas and talk through which plant textures or colors might compliment your renovated home. However, I cannot  help you determine which hardscape materials are best, the exact plants you should use for your zone or help you design structures like retaining walls, decks, or pergolas.

After the mid-week video, we can go back and forth with as many emails and other ideas 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 and shipped to you right away.

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

Get a clear idea of the next steps

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 more inspirations and sources 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.    

Picture how your home could look

see the potential


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  when your consultation begins to start the conversation about your project.  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!

It all starts with you

Hello, I'm Mel

Colleyville, TX


"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! "
