“Melissa Peretti creates show-stopping designs that reflect a modern lifestyle. If you want drool-worthy spaces, hire Melissa today!” Sarah K., SKPR Marketing Communications

“We love our main floor – it is now cozy and perfect for entertaining. We want to spend more time in this space and have people over. The closets downstairs are a godsend for storage and keep the mess hidden. Lastly, our kitchen floor is so much better than what was there before – it turned out better than I thought it would. Thank you for your expertise and doing a great job!” -Sonia C.

“Our consultation yesterday was great and exceeded my expectations. After having had some time to process the ideas, I am feeling inspired and excited about our space and the choices that we can make both functionally and aesthetically to have the home that we want.”  -Sonia C.

Thanks so much for your time on Monday and for this detailed proposal. I found your insight super helpful and inspirational. I love the idea of your ‘a la carte’ services and will definitely be contacting you for help in the future.” -Arwen H.

“I loved how deeply you delved into the project, to figure out our style and needs. You found things in our basement we had completely forgotten about and unearthed old treasures locked away in cupboards. You did all the work, but made our place feel like us. We love it.-Cartherine P.

Melissa made some fantastic, insightful recommendations that totally suited our tastes and space. She worked within my budget, offered smart solutions, and created a wee bit of magic in our home. Thanks, Melissa!”Heather C.

We loved working with Melissa, and are thrilled with the outcome. She made the crummy parts of home redesign so much less overwhelming (eg. choosing paint colours and tiles, furniture shopping). -Karen H. 

Melissa was great to work with. I wanted two very designs for two very different girls and she listened and knew exactly what I was looking for. She gave us some great ideas and the whole family is very happy with the results. When we are ready to go ahead and design the other parts of our house we will definitely use Melissa again. -Jane B. 

“That Melissa has a great design sense. Her rooms are warm and cozy and liveable!” -Karen B.

The place looks so great, thank you, you & Peter are like my Christmas angels! My three year old walked into the dining room and said ‘wow!’ So you know that’s an honest review! -Noelle H.

Again, just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU. for your time and efforts in this. Michael and I just went through the plan together last night and agreed on just about every item! This would not have happened without you, you saved us loads of time and energy, as well as adding your unique designer eye.-Noelle H.

Our consultation yesterday was great and exceeded my expectations. After having had some time to process the ideas, I am feeling inspired and excited about our space and the choices that we can make both functionally and aesthetically to have the home that we want. Ryan and I are both particularly jazzed at the moment by the off-ventured 2-sided corner fireplace (and storage/built-ins) in the back family room. Thank you for the idea! We are excited about how this solution opens up the space and provides a nice connection point between the open concept areas.-Lisa F.

“It was a pleasure working with you, Melissa. I probably a more specific need than others, but you totally got me what I needed in the time period that you said you would. Excellent service and I look forward to working with you in the future.” -Ann P.

“Melissa is lovely, approachable, flexible and has great ideas.” -Tara R.

“Melissa was great to work with. I was comfortable with her right away and she gave us some fabulous ideas to design our main floor and second floor. I was very happy with the services I received. It was very reasonably priced. I wouldn’t have changed anything. I would recommend having a list of questions for Melissa when you meet. If you are considering working with Melissa, just do it.” -Yoona M.

“Melissa is magic and will make your space the exact thing you wanted but didn’t even know you wanted. Her ability to SEE is incredible. My biggest concern before hiring [her was] mostly do I really need to hire someone? The answer was clearly a YES.” -Tanya G.

“Having you shop for me made all the difference to the outcome. Honestly, even if you gave me a list of products you suggested to pick up, I would have likely picked ‘safer’ options. I love the gold and marble light, the wall you designed, the art work and pots. I wouldn’t have picked them, but I love them. -Carolyn R.

I would tell them that you have amazing patience and a very good eye for design. -Susan C.

I was worried that I would be pressured into a look that was “pretty” but not practical or comfortable for everyday living with young kids. Mrs. Darling managed to achieve it all. By taking the time to really understand our needs, [Melissa] created organized, stylish spaces that look amazing AND work for everyday life. My kids love their new rooms! They take great pride in keeping them neat and inviting their friends in. I love that the rooms manage to reflect their individual personalities while also tying in nicely with the rest of the house.  -Anita S.
