Our Story

After graduating with a degree in counselling, Melissa realized her passion for design and Project Management was where her heart truly was. This love for the design industry, drove her to change her career path.

 

She was offered an entry-level position at a high-end kitchen design company, learning how to design luxury kitchens. In those days they still designed with a scale ruler on paper. She gained valuable practical experience, but in the back of her mind, she always knew she wanted to work for herself and start her own business.

 

She started by opening her own interior shop - Interior Galleries - in 1992. Part of the service she and her team provided was to do special paint techniques on furniture and walls. This led to growing the business to do bigger projects, these projects ranged from a single room to medium size luxury homes, kitchen, bathroom vanities and

built-in cupboards. She registered her company in 2000 and it continues to grow. 

 

Melissa never stopped building her brand while raising 2 amazing kids with her husband Paul. But when the kids left home in 2016, she focussed all her energy on designing and building their own family home in the Highland Gate Golf Estate (Stand 843). Shortly after, Melissa and her friend Anneline decided to purchase stand 1006 in the same estate and build a 5-star guest house. And with an amazing end result completed the house in March 2019. Melissa handling the construction, design, and interior aspects of the project, and Anneline runs the guest house - The Irish Rock Guest House (www.theirishrock.co.za) - until today. This fresh approach to design quickly attracted the interest of many new clients in Highland Gate Golf Estate.

Inspiration…

 

My Mom was my inspiration.

 

Coming from a modest background, before Pinterest,

I was watching my mom from a distance, meticulously selecting décor items, she created the most beautiful living spaces and focus areas.

 

She had a natural feel for a room, how she celebrated beautiful things, including art, which complemented a space with her special touch, very much ahead of her time.

 

I have fond memories of her carefully hiding the decor items from my Dad.

 

She would assemble them next to her Sunday hats on the top shelf, until she was ready for the big reveal.

 

She sparked something inside of me, igniting my creativity and love for beauty. Her excellent taste and originality inspired me, always practical, inviting and stylish - just like her.

 

Dankie Mamma...
