Melanie Stewart is a residential designer, interior stylist and founder of Melanie Stewart designs established in Lafayette, CA in 2010. MSD is currently based in Eagle, Idaho.
Melanie believes good design comes from a collaboration with her clients so that their home reflects their personal style.
So often I hear, "I know what I like and don't like, I just don't know how to put it together!" Whether designing a room or an entire home, there are many things to consider when selecting the right colors, furniture, materials and finishes that it can be overwhelming. I can help by providing space planning and furniture layouts, budgets, sourcing furnishing, art/accessories, paint/wallpaper, window coverings, materials, fixtures and finishes, all based on the specific needs of your project and a plan to achieve your design goals, whether it is all done at once or phased out into several smaller projects.
Upon moving to San Francisco in 2005, Melanie began working at a high-end residential design firm, eventually taking the role as lead designer and overseeing projects in San Francisco, Woodside, Park City, Wyoming and New York. It is from working on these projects, in addition to her own travels, that she developed a love for antiques and vintage finds that she loves to incorporate into each space she designs.
In her spare time Melanie loves to treasure hunt at local vintage and antique shops, loves a good flea market and antiques fair, and has even picked up a few items from roadside sales.
"If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." William Morris
