About Us


Melissa Mattice

Principal & Senior Designer

Melissa’s creativity originally sparked from her talent blending colors and textures as an artist. Pursuing her life-long passion for design, she graduated from the American Institute of Interior Design. Melissa began her career creating impactful residential homes unique to the needs and visions of each client. Building on her talent for creating pleasing environments full of detail, texture and color, she orchestrates model home and sales office projects for developers in Arizona and California.

Each model home for Melissa starts as a blank canvas that transforms into a highly marketable design product where she showcases her eye-catching talent for color and fabric.

In her free time, Melissa enjoys running, yoga and visiting coffee shops with her husband and kids.
