Melissa started her career in commercial design at a global commercial real estate firm. For nearly a decade, she spent her days renovating commercial office buildings; from designing the space to hiring contractors and architects to project management. Her experiences redesigning and managing large-scale projects gave her the skills needed to navigate herself around a construction site and understand new build/renovation documents.
Melissa has always had an eye for design. She studied art in Italy and furthered her education by going back to school for residential interior design, laying the groundwork for her to begin her own boutique firm, Melissa Marcus Designs.
As a mother to two young children, Melissa recognizes the need for practicality and creates luxurious, livable spaces to fit any lifestyle. She designs with the client in mind and through a collaborative process, makes your home a place you never want to leave.
