What are contractors saying...
I recently completed a project for Mistura Interior Design. The project was run very professionally. Melinda handled the coordination of the contractors so that they had adequate time and space to do their job and the results were awesome! I look forward to working with Mistura on more projects in the future.

"She wanted to see the clothes in my closet, I tried on a few of my favorite jackets -- which I thought was another great way for her to get to know me, my style."
I purchased a 1500 ft loft in a 1915 Cambridge factory building, and even though I am a graphic (2d) designer I wanted help with designing my new living space. After doing some online research I was impressed with Mistura Design's beautiful and well-organized website. I called Melinda (Mistura 's president) and right from the start she made me feel comfortable explaining the process, not pushing anything on me, but rather wanting to get to know me, my likes and tastes, etc. She came to my prior place and photographed my furnishings, art, antiques, and even wanted to see the clothes in my closet, I tried on a few of my favorite jackets -- which I thought was another great way for her to get to know me, my style.
We collaborated on a number of things but Melinda's selection of some things I am still ecstatic about like a metallic pearl blue wall, custom kitchen island and dining area side board produced from architectural salvage, plus great light fixtures, throw pillows, and arrangement of my art, art objects, my collection of mirrors. The bedroom is a pleasure at night from the lighting, wall colors, and library-drawer-salvage nite stands to the sheepskin rugs, plants and mirrors.
Friends and family really like the place, and in the end she created a space that expresses who I am, and my son even said "Dad this place is you." If you need help with interior design you will be delighted working with Melinda (who is friendly, artistic, prompt, talented and upbeat) and her team of painters, carpenters, and special artisans and suppliers were excellent. —S.M.

“I have had so many compliments on my modern loft since Melinda designed it!”
I had specific needs and wants for a small space: to be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Melinda did that and more. Her space planning and utilization of colors and textures have transformed our loft into a place that feels like you are in a vacation getaway at home, just as I requested it be.
I have had many experiences in decorating places and Melinda is the best Interior designer I have come across. I would highly recommend Melinda to design your next pad.

“All of my visitors come in and are WOWed!”
I highly recommend Mistura I have seen all of her work (in person) and know that the end product is always well-suited to the client (not just what she wants, but what she recommends for you -- this is a huge plus, as sometimes other interior designers push their style on you).
When I moved into my last home -- my landlord's offered to repaint my space anything I wanted. After having worked with Melinda for years, I immediately contacted her to help me select paint colors that worked well together, but also gave you a sense of my design aesthetic (I am a photographer and graphic designer). Melinda did a phenomenal job improving the space -- selecting colors that illuminated darker spaces and complemented light-filled rooms. She also helped me to select furniture (even picking up and delivering a lot for me -- she rocks!) and style it so it allowed each room to be functional and have an easy flow. All of my visitors come in and are wowed, which is a 200% improvement in comparison to when I first came to check out the place!
I would work with her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to everyone that I know!

“Melinda incorporates so many elements seamlessly like color, finish, texture and style!”
Melinda took away every unpleasant aspect of the process and I actually enjoyed myself. And even better... I love my new apartment! So does everyone who sees it.
The aspects I found most useful were:
* She found a custom furniture maker that not only saved me money, it was cheaper than similar store items, but I also got EXACTLY what I wanted.
* She found very cool, chic multi-use furniture I didn't know existed
* Melinda transformed my place from a white wash to a palette of subdued, exciting colors that enhance the vibe and pleasure of being home.
* she's flexible on what she provides, she'll did anything from picking out paint colors to actually doing the shopping and even picked some items up from the store and delivered them. Melinda is the best!
* She's is very sensitive to price considerations and comes up with options across the cost spectrum.
* She makes it fun and easy... not sure how, but she completely eliminates the stress and makes it fun!
* I had a problem with some furniture I ordered, endless delays on delivery. Even though Melinda had finished my place several weeks earlier she got on the phone and a few days later I had my couches and a discount!
I highly recommend Melinda
