Meet the Team
Melissa Peretti, Owner & Studio Principal
We’re all familiar with the saying “Home is where the heart is”, but so many of us are living in spaces that are uninspiring, lacking function and not really ‘us’. I think life’s way too short for that.
I’m Melissa Peretti, a Toronto-based interior decorator with a passion for uniquely beautiful and perfectly practical design.
This passion led me to found MPI+D, which specializes in providing full service, turnkey interior design to residential clients in the east end of Toronto.
I believe that your home should reflect what makes you, well, you. That’s why I strive to create warm and wonderful spaces that perfectly reflect the people that live in them by incorporating personal, unique and collected elements.
I’m a maker at heart, with a knack for re-thinking and re-purposing the quirky, meaningful elements that tell your story and give your space its soul. Infusing your home with personality, beauty and function is my ultimate goal.
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”– William Morris
