I believe good interior design isn’t fussy.

It isn’t necessarily brand new – or perfectly polished.
It’s warm. Layered. Inviting. And clever.

I’m Melissa Peretti, a Toronto-based interior decorator who creates uniquely beautiful and perfectly practical spaces for busy modern families in Toronto (and beyond).

With me, you’ll never get cookie-cutter design. I have a knack for re-thinking, re-purposing, and reusing items you already have (and love!). My goal is to create a space that’s perfectly YOU and perfect FOR you – taking into account the way you live and use your space, as well as your style and preferences.

CREATING A HOME FOR WHAT MATTERS

We will think about your lifestyle and decorate accordingly. Being honest about how you live is essential to creating great spaces. Practical needs, not just style aspirations, should guide your plans. My passion is to make your home beautiful and practical, to see your family function happily in your space.

Let’s create a space to be inspired everyday in.

I loved how deeply Melissa delved into the project, to figure out our style and needs. She did all the work, but made our place seem like us. We love it.

RECENT PROJECT

PORTER/BURT HOME, TORONTO

It all started last September when they had the idea to give Lyla a room make over for her birthday. But that was just the beginning. The master and Noah’s room was next. Then in the New Year, the whole main floor. Living room, dinning room, entrance….. the kitchen even got a mini reno. And can you blame them? Those tiles! Temptation at it’s most seductive. (Ya, I know I’m talking about tile).

Having a warm home that looks good and works well, and that you and your family and friends enjoy, must be one of the most worthwhile things in life.
