Whether you need to update one room or redo the whole house, Fine Designs is THE place for expert help. Some of my friends say, "Hiring a decorator is expensive", but I know I couldn't have done what I needed without them. They asked what I wanted, and then found the materials and workmen to achieve a beautiful new environment for me. I'm an elderly widow, and Fine Designs helped me to stay in my own home. They saved me from expensive mistakes, and all the stress of finding and scheduling workmen. It was a fairly big, costly job, but it sure beats the nursing home! My house is beautiful and I'm so grateful to Melinda and her staff.
Melinda provides the highest quality of services! I have hired her for several jobs and she WOW's every project! I just bought a New House in November and Did it help help! I called Melinda and said I need your help is was on it! Came over with her paint samples and fabric for curtains. Stayed here and answered all my questions and she had it all picked out for me! AMAZING what she did! I would HIGHLY recommend Melinda for any job big or small! She is AWESOME!
We used Fine Designs & Interiors for several remodel projects. They made custom window treatment for our master bedroom, sitting room, bath and dining room. My experience with Melinda and her team was great, they are extremely knowledgeable, talented and a pleasure to work with. I love what they did in each of our rooms and give them the highest rating. I definitely recommend Fine Deigns & Interior and will look to them for future projects.
A house definitely becomes a home when Melinda of Fine Designs & Interiors walks through the front door. Stylish, professional and prompt and just a few words that come to mind when trying to describe the service we received. Melinda took our visions and thoughts and brought them to life! We highly recommend Melinda, along with her staff, and her creative expertise for your next interior design project or custom window treatment.
Melinda helped us pick out new furniture for our family room, including couch, loveseat, ottoman, dining table & 4 chairs, rug, 3 end tables, TV console and window treatment fabric. Her company made the seat cushions for the dining chairs and the throw pillows for the couches. I made the valences for the windows from the same fabric, which she ordered for us and delivered to our home. She helped with style and color choices. She made helpful suggestions for my painting existing bar stools and file cabinet to coordinate with the new furniture.
Melinda listened carefully to the style and mood I wanted/needed in our family room. She narrowed down the choices to perfectly fit what we needed. She was persistent, she communicated clearly and was so pleasant to be around.
I chose Fine Designs & Interiors LTD. I walked into her office with samples of the floor and granite for my new house and she took it from there and did the whole house! I was not on site so we did most everything thru e-mails. She was on time and on cost for everything, and a delight to work with. From the largest item to the smallest detail, I could not have done the project without her.
Melinda Peters Elliot was contracted to redo my family room which in the past had been a drab panelled 1960's looking area which I hated. She hired an amish woodcrafter to construct solid oak cabinets with a built in decorative heatalator fire place along with curio cabinets which cover the length of my family room. I had many items stored in various cabinets which made the room unsightly and cluttered. She was able to draw plans to make use of drawers in the new cabinetry to accomodate videos, DVD's CD's and were made to roll into the outer part of the room for hooking up and checking equipment for the entertainment center. A 50" TV was built in above the fireplace that had originally sat on a huge stand.
New carpet in a palm leaf motif was laid and the room had one unsightly wall that faced the crawl space. The amish gentleman quoted a price to build that half wall out of solid bead board tougue and groove oak - I cannot beleive the difference it made. With new furniture added and a new valance on the window that Melinda designed everything feel into place and to the day I am still enjoying the room more than any room in my home. I would highly recommend Melinda for any design or interior consultation and job if you are in need of those services - It only took 1 week from start to finish and in the past if we tried to do it ourselves it would be months of living in a mess, never finishing a lot of the items that we had started. Kudos for a excellent job well done.
Fine Design has been responsible for 3 small renovation projects at my home including the decoration of a basement living room, 2 bathrooms and replacement of my kitchen floor. I have been very satisfied with the quality of the service/workmanship of all these projects.
Fine Design has worked with me during the last 5 years on updating my home: Basement living area, two bathroom revisions and most recently an updating of my kitchen. I recently had granite countertops installed in my kitchen and without Melinda's help it would have been a total disaster. The granite installer made a mistake with the template and she was a tremendous asset in ensuring that they made the job right and provided some compensation for all the hassel. I have come to rely on their workmen and Melinda's ideas.
I have utilized Fine Designs & Interiors to help make my master bedroom mirror my personality and taste! Initially in this do over (2-2008), Melinda made a roman shade with matching cornice board, pillows & recovered a cushion on a window seat storage unit! Everything came out beautifully! She even repaired at no cost to me one of the pillows after my then new puppy chewed on one of the edges! I was so pleased that I had her make a fitted contemporary bedspread. It came out beautifully also! We are currently (2-2013) working on another custom cornice board & roman shade to cover the beveled glass French doors that lead into my master bedroom, recovering two bench cushions, & making a rocking chair slipcover. She utilized the fabric from the window seat cushion to make the new cornice board since that material has been discontinued! She is always on time, full of creative ideas, receptive to your ideas, & willing to break down the project into manageable stages for those with a smaller budget. She will be utilized in an upcoming kitchen remodel! She is talented & fun!
I would highly recommend Fine Designs & Interiors. I hired them to decorate our new bathroom and window treatments in our kitchen. Melinda came to our home looked at the space and from there on its been a great experience. She found the perfect picture and the most perfect rug and mirror. It has worked out so well that I hired them to do our backsplash and that project has been great. I have found a great decorator an also a good friend.
