Melinda Hartwright - Interior Designer

Melinda Hartwright is an interior designer recently relocated to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, Qld. Melinda’s 20+ years experience building and renovating her own projects, allows her to provide invaluable insight and expertise to her clients' projects whether new builds, renovating or simply decorating.

Her much lauded and emulated signature style offers a refreshing perspective on traditional American and European design and how it can be reinterpreted for Australian homes. It is at once classic and timeless, elegant and chic, embracing colour and pattern, but always liveable and homely. Sandy feet and wet towels welcome!

Melinda's obsession and creative influence is borne of an enduring love of American decorating, design and architecture. She considers herself a neo-trad (new traditionalist), reinventing traditional interiors with a fresh, contemporary interpretation. Her lifelong love of blue and white inspires her designs, and the results are homes that balance beauty and function, where colour and pattern play a leading role, and where practicality and elegance are combined with ease.

Melinda provides a refreshing perspective on each project taking into account her client's lifestyle, goals and budget coupled with a thorough understanding of their needs and personal tastes. Her signature style always shines through each design with a clever and unique blend of colour, pattern, texture and a deep appreciation of the elements that make a house a home.

Melinda's design work has been featured in many publications and her work regularly appears in Home Beautiful magazine.
