I'm Melanie, Creative Director at our studio

I've always had a passion for interiors and set up my practice in 2012 after graduating from a two year interior design course at Brighton Met college.

I've been thrilled to work on some wonderful and diverse projects over the years including elegant Grade ll listed Georgian seafront apartments, grand Victorian townhouses, cool mid-century new builds and a modern London penthouse overlooking the Thames.

I believe every home should reflect personal style and encompass both function and practicality. My design process begins by listening and building trust so together we can create the home you and your family dream of.

I'll guide and steer you through the design and renovation process, always listening. I'll provide all the information you require to enable any necessary decision making along the way.

Communication is key and I'll keep you up to date on all aspects of your design and renovation throughout.


Design only, Design and supply/install

Melanie helped us design & furnish our Georgian townhouse. Having never previously worked with an interior designer we were a bit nervous about being talked into things we didn't want but I can honestly say that she is lovely to have around.

She listens to what you want and then turns it into something much better.

Mr & Mrs Comley, Brighton
We had completed two different projects; Interior decoration and supply of all amenities with the professional assistance of [Melanie's studio]. They had shown exemplary skill and proficiency and delivered the apartments as attractive and cozy as it can be. It was beyond what we had expected and envisaged. We wish Melanie [and her practice] all the very best for all their future endeavours. To add to it, another notable feature is the willingness of [Melanie's team] to assume and impart such responsibilities that are beyond their scope, that the situation may demand during the progress of any project, which I think is an unparalleled and unique feature of [Melanie's practice].
Mr Balraj Bal, Brighton / Dubai
We have just had our kitchen/diner completely renovated with Elixir design. It was a fabulous experience and I can't thank Melanie enough. She is a total professional in all areas from the design and keeping to budget, which was an important factor for us. Straight through to recommending and liaising with the contractors on our behalf. We felt really looked after but also really connected to the whole process. I was especially impressed with Melanie's creative input since she really 'got' us and our build really reflects that. The whole experience was a real pleasure.
