We had just completed a major home renovation project when we reached out to Melinda to help with the interior design of our main living spaces. She worked closely with us to create a cohesive design vision that fit well with our lifestyle. We could not be more pleased with the results. She listened to our ideas, respected our budget and kept a clear line of communication open at all times. We are very pleased with the quality of all the furnishings that she recommended. Melinda always provided accurate information about product availability and met the timeframe we outlined for the project. She is a true interior design professional with excellent attention to detail and very high standards. Melinda has a real passion for design and for serving her clients. I recommend her without reservation and look forward to working with her on future projects.

Melinda’s remarkable creativity and vision is only matched by her patience and pleasant demeanor She listens with care and has an excellent ability to provide creative insight that resulted in a final design that exceeded my expectations. I worked overseas during much of the implementation, yet Melinda kept me fully informed and made certain our agreed design would be completed to the highest standard. She worked tirelessly and managed every item to an exact detail. I couldn’t be happier with the final result. She is a true professional that holds herself to the highest of standards!

Melinda brought both professionalism and creativity to my project – qualities that often do not go hand-in-hand.  She was always mindful of my budget and provided frequent accounting which helped me stay within that budget.  Her design ideas were fresh and enduring.  We love the final product.

 We were moving into a condo with a very dark kitchen when I contacted Melinda.  She suggested we add lighting and change the finishes.  The subcontractors she recommended did an outstanding job.  The transformation was dramatic.  We now have a bright, inviting and stylish kitchen which we enjoy using every day.

 Melinda allowed us to complete a kitchen remodel as well as completely furnish a new home with the least amount of stress and angst.  She managed all of the subcontractors, provided constant quality control and dealt deftly with any problems.  We were delighted with her work.

 I am especially pleased with the vendors Melinda chose.  My furnishings are stylish, of excellent quality and manufactured by American companies – all priorities for me.

Melinda knew exactly what Jennings Barn needed to be transformed into the restaurant Canyon Kitchen.  She was diligent and patient in working with our group and helped us discover what she seemingly already knew. She perfectly balanced the necessary functionality of the restaurant space with unique touches that brought it to life as something more than a restaurant.  Thanks to Melinda, a beautiful barn has become the centerpiece for a gathering community to enjoy not only meals but the convivial spirit her design helped to create.

“When the decision was made to furnish the William Baxter Lee III Foyer of the Clayton Center for the Arts and we met with Melinda, we all knew immediately she had the vision for the space we wanted.  Working with Melinda was effortless and the result better than we had imagined.  Her work makes it possible for the space to be used and appreciated daily.”

    Thank you again Melinda.  We love the space.

Working with Melinda was such a pleasure!  She identified the spatial concerns that we had in our daughter’s room, and designed a space that was functional for a child today but also for the future.  Her spatial design was current, but also sensitive to the framework of a First Period home from 1665.  Thank you, Melinda!

 Melinda has assisted me with projects in two different homes.  Each time I work with her, I am so pleased by her ability to listen to my needs and expand on those thoughts using her design talents and experience.  I am always offered a unique and well thought-out design proposal.  During the next phase of actually implementing the design, her dedication shines.  Her firm handled everything, allowing me the freedom in my schedule to focus on other things.  I can always trust that I am going to be left with the beautiful and comfortable space she envisioned.

My experience with Chatham Interiors has been impressive.  Melinda is a talented designer whose outcomes are always tasteful and comfortable.  Her attention to detail is high, and she demands high quality in materials and workmanship.  It has been a pleasure and an honor to be selected as a contractor on her design projects.

I have been working with Melinda long distance and I couldn’t be happier with the spaces she has created. What an incredible eye she has for color and quality!  She is helping me turn my new house into a home!

Melinda is a great designer to work with especially if you have never worked with a designer before. Because I had never used the services of a designer, I was a bit apprehensive. However, Melinda really listened to me about my needs and concerns and helped me look at the space I needed to redo in new ways. Her presentation of the new design was well thought out, professional and so gorgeous that I fell in love with my new bedroom and bathroom before construction ever started. Not only was she organized, but she had samples of materials for me to consider, as well as lists of sources for tile, fabric, paint, lighting; really everything that would be going into the space.

Chatham interiors made my first experience with an interior design firm a real joy. Melinda was able to combine the utmost in professionalism with the feeling of getting advice from a good friend. Initially, it was hard for me to release control, so Melinda helped me focus my thoughts and creativity to bring our project together. She is such a joy to work with and understands my constraints as a professional and a Mom.
