If it’s home renovations or a fit out of your holiday home you’re planning, or you’re simply after a gift with a difference, then Melanie Craig Design is the place for you. An interior design company, this all-woman team works ‘from the walls in’ to help you create a sleek, functional and sophisticated home with none of the blandness and all of the spice.
Made up of a team of three kitchen designers and three interior specialists, there’s no room for surprise when you see how many national awards Melanie Craig Design has won over the years. From new builds to renovations, and from one room to the whole house, this hardworking team knows their stuff when it comes to making your house look beautiful. Self-proclaimed as fun, bold and mischievous, the company prefers to push boundaries when it designs interiors, and their vibrant range of wallpapers, materials and furniture will make their vision for your home contagious.
Keen supporters of NZ made, their products are from all around the country, although as the staff will admit, you can’t get everything in New Zealand, so things like the beautiful Italian glassware has come straight from the source. Even your humble soap dispensers needn’t be dull, and Melanie Craig excels in offering quality and superbly-made everyday items that are sure to put the fun in function.
