” Melinda designed a kitchen for us many years ago which we loved so she was the natural choice when we decided to upgrade the kitchen and bathrooms in our current house.  Just like last time we are thrilled with the results and they have given our house a huge lift.  The new bathrooms are stylish and functional and make the most of the relatively small space available.  The kitchen upgrade involved totally re-organising the layout of the kitchen and the adjoining family living and dining areas as well as replacing the floor.  As well as the design, we relied on Melinda to choose all the materials and the appliances.  Her design has responded very well to our needs and the new space is both stylish and practical.  Melinda was extremely pleasant to work with and provided a high level of support throughout the whole process including construction.  She is now helping us select furniture for our new-look rooms. We recommend Melinda’s services without reservation and would certainly use her again for any future interior design projects we may have.”

” I wanted to again thank you for your significant design contribution to our new home. As well as being a fabulous home we have had several parties and events over recent months and the house just works so well as a functioning space.
Our house is not that big but the spaces work so much better than houses far bigger. We are often at another home with effectively the same component parts (kitchen, dining, lounge and  deck) and it just never seems to integrate with people and the event; doors, walls and benches seem to be in the wrong spot and the space can’t be adapted. We can swap dining for lounge, seat 30+, party and dance with over 80 and the place just gets ‘a vibe’. The kitchen looks good but is so very functional. You have kept functionality as the prime aim in all elements of your design and it just make the space work so well. For example, your kitchen layout is so well thought out I actually enjoy unloading the dishwasher! I hardly have to move, everything is just at hand.
Thank you also for your recommendation of the cabinet maker. Their  quality and service was fabulous. ”

” Melinda Boag Design undertook the entire interior design of our home renovations. Melinda has an exceptional eye for what looks good, but importantly, a practical, realistic approach to what will actually work and be functional. Melinda did a great job on our project and has  amazing attention to detail. ”

” I would like to thank Melinda Boag for assisting us with the design of our new home. I had lots of ideas about what I wanted, but without Melinda I feel that we might have got a mix of styles and elements that didn’t quite go together.  Melinda designed the kitchen, bathroom, laundry and joinery layouts, and as a result we have very functional and stylish rooms.  She was also instrumental in the finishes and colour selections for both the indoor and outdoor areas.   Melinda was able to listen and interpret what we wanted and then guide us in the right direction (or stop me going in the wrong direction!).   We now have a beautiful home which is both contemporary and homely. ”

” My husband and I were in a quandary as to when and how to sell our house. Melinda walked into our house and four weeks later it was on the market and it sold at auction for a great price that we put down to Melinda’s styling and advice for improving the aesthetic of the house. Melinda was able to select a handful of improvements that changed the whole feel of the house. She also helped us to update our furniture and present the house beautifully.  It looked so good it was hard to let it go in the end!
Melinda was sensitive to our budget and worked in with our taste and style of furniture and importantly kept us on task as we decluttered and made the changes.
Melinda is a generator of change.  Her energy, positive direct manner and astute eye and combine to make her a dynamo.
She is the best investment we made for our house sale and we will be using her again for our next house. ”
