Interior Designs Tips

I love fabric!  An easy way to take a room from bland and boring to bursting with personality is through the use of fabric whether it be in a recovered chair, as a window panel or in a throw cushion.  Fabric is an easy way to change your space without changing the integral pieces of the room,

  A dear friend of mine was telling me how when she was growing up her Mom used to send ‘love lunches’ with them to school on Valentine’s Day, and just how much it meant to her to find that expression of affection in her backpack.  Since that moment I ventured to do the

In our house, the exterior is my husband’s domain, he gets excited to spook the little goblins with this Halloween decorations, and then is anxious to tear all that down to allow for the best of the neighbourhood Christmas display.  But inside the house is mine.  I love to tweak my

I am thrilled to announce a new partnership I recently forged with PlaidFox, an online retailer who has now set up shop on my site.  I love their product and felt it fit in beautifully with what I do, so it’s a great fit!  I’m excited that clients will now be able to shop directly


Interior design and art are expressions of who we are. Our surroundings should inspire us and represent us. That is my approach.

Infused Living. That can mean different things to different people. But my goal, by doing what I do, is to infuse your space with a feeling of home, with the feeling that it reflects who you are and how you live your life. I do that through Interior Design and Decorating.

Although based in White Rock/South Surrey, Infused Living has a much broader reach. Thanks to technology (and some creativity) my services extend beyond the Lower Mainland, having completed successful projects in Calgary, Seattle and Denver.


  • Mel made us feel at ease and helped us with finding and selecting tiles and layout for our bathroom. She was able to make suggestions based on the description we gave of how we wanted the bathroom to look. The end result is fabulous!
    She was also able to help us with selecting an exterior paint color and layout of our siding and shingles.

  • I really enjoyed meeting Melanie. She listened to what my needs and wants were, and showed up with the colors and ideas I had in mind. Melanie also had some fresh and unexpected ideas that were in my price range that I fell in love with. Over all I was very impressed and my time and money were saved with using Melanie’s services. I would highly recommend Infused Living!

  • I worked with Melanie on a major renovation project on Vancouver Island. She had a clear vision for the project as a whole and was creative and collaborative when changes had to be made due to the constraints of a home over half a century old. My job as a contractor is to provide the best possible service to a client and Melanie’s ability to communicate ideas and information quickly and effectively was incredibly valuable on this project. I would highly recommend Infused Living and look forward to working with Melanie gain.

  • Melanie was a guiding hand throughout our renovation, providing us with great ideas, and putting us in touch with the right trades (talented and reasonably priced) to complete the project. Thanks to Melanie and the trades she connected us with, we saved thousands of dollars — without losing out on quality. Melanie also has a good design sense, and helped us choose bathroom tiles, kitchen back splash, granite countertops, etc to make sure the theme of our house stayed on course. Melanie is a pleasure to work with — we highly recommend her!

  • Our Renovation company has been working in the local area for over 25 years. In the past we have hired other interior designers to help with our projects. We have found that all of them were not a good fit. Until we hired Melanie for a major renovation. We now use her as much as we can. She has an amazing ability to take everyone’s suggestions and ideas, then turn around and make them a reality. She is incredibly patient, respectful and kind. I often compare her to a psychiatrist because she has a way to deal with “his and her” issues that often arise during the design stage. Melanie will always work with us on our projects requiring a interior designer. I highly recommend contacting her when wanting to change the way you see things.


I strive to take the time to understand my clients, and to make their spaces reflect who they are. Living in a space that is beautiful lifts our mood and makes us smile. With a commitment to injecting my clients’ personalities into the design and being true to the way they live, a beautiful space can also be home.
