I contacted Melody with Salazar Custom Interiors on a bit of a whim as I had been contemplating what to do with our bonus room for a handful of years and had neither time nor inspiration. I had an overall “feel” that I wanted in the room but couldn’t seem to bring it together as there were a few odd architectural features and my goal was for it to be multi-purpose including the go-to movie room, exercise room and a study area for my kids. What I have liked about working with Melody is that she was immediately able to pick up on the feel that I wanted and gave me several options in her scope of work so she could be very involved or more loosely involved. From our initial consult, I had several ideas that I could have run with but I knew I needed more guidance. She has been very detailed creating several story boards on-line that make it easy for me to say “like” or “dislike” until we come to an agreement. She also has great connections with furniture companies and I did compare and am saving money on the same pieces I bought through her, as she shares the discounts she’s established. This savings alone, offset her design fees.
Her color choices are fantastic. The paint alone has dramatically changed the room and this is something I could not have done without her. If you have a project you are looking to start, give her a call!
We were in need of immediate help and Melody came to our rescue. She provided the expert advice we needed to finish out our project. We look forward to having her help us more.

I found Melody on Houzz when I needed three rooms in my home to be done over completely. I was drawn to her because of her great reviews and photos of her work, which I found extraordinary, no matter what the style. I had been trying to find someone with a broad range of looks and her site showed me that, and that no matter what the style, her finished look was clean and classy, but livable.
We were not disappointed! Mel did a fantastic job and all the rooms look amazing. Best of all, she really listened and the rooms reflect US in a beautiful way..
We will always turn to Mel when needing any design services. Call her, you’ll be glad you did!

It was a pleasure working with Mel. She understood everything I was looking for and stayed well within my budget. She was always reachable either by phone or email and responded very quickly. Her design choices were just what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Mel for any of your decorating ventures.

Melody is as professional as they come, yet still extremely personable and really cares about her customers. She did a FANTASTIC job on our first home and I silently thank her every time I walk through the front door. Entering my house feels like a dream and it’s all because of Melody. She listened to my crazy ideas and made them a reality. I’d recommend her services to anyone looking for a designer that has the resources, patience, talent and taste to create an incredible ambiance. She made the process fun and exciting and I can’t wait to work on my next project with her!
Melody Salazar’s vision and ability to grasp the look and feel her clients want is absolutely incredible! We hired her to redecorate, refurnish, repaint our living room, kitchen, dining room, morning room, guest bathroom, sewing room, master bedroom and master bath. She provided options, suggestions, answers to never ending questions with the upmost professionalism. She truly transformed our nice new house into a beautiful, warm and inviting showcase home.
Melody Salazar is a designer unlike anyone else I have encountered. She listened, truly listened, and produced for me EXACTLY what I had in mind. Her sensitivity to furniture and fabrics, space, function and placement, and her fine eye brings about quality design for YOU, not for her. But, she will guide you wisely through the process.
Melody’s grace, delightful personality, and willingness to be of service made my experience truly comfortable and totally pleasant, and resulted in a stunning completion. She has an inherent sense of style, truly second nature for her.
Salazar Custom Interiors has been an answer to my prayers! I do not know how to decorate, and the owner, Mrs. Salazar, has created a beautiful home for my family. She asked me questions about my family and our lifestyle, and she created rooms that are gorgeous and functional for us. Her use of color and texture brings out the warmth and coziness of the home. Her ideas are really inspirational and transforming. For example, she changed our white “builders” doors into woodsy subtle doors that don’t compete with the fixtures in the room. She is also very efficient, and stays in close contact as the merchandise and contractors are coming together. She is also very cognizant of my budget and offers me a range of prices to choose merchandise from. In fact she has saved me lots of money because of her status as a “buyer” from name brand furnishing companies. I would have paid twice as much for our leather couch if I had bought it on my own at the nearby furniture store I love. I kept pushing a faux “rock” finish for the chimney, but she said that the natural quarry rock would be cheaper and far more beautiful. She was right! It cost half as much as the manufactured rock and is gorgeous. Mrs. Salazar is awesome to work with as a person. She is a true professional, but also a kind person who wants you to enjoy your living spaces. I recommend Salazar Custom Interiors without reservation, and I look forward to working with her again.
We worked with Melody Salazar on our project to re-decorate our living, master BR and outdoor areas. She was attentive to our objectives, taste, budget and deadlines throughout the project. She has an extensive knowledge of sources for interesting and elegant furnishings and accessories. She followed through on deliveries, installations and, when needed, corrections. As a result, our bedroom is now serene and comforting, our living room is spectacular, and our outdoor areas are both inviting and stylish. Thanks, Melody!
This was such a wonderful experience for my husband and me. Mel is a delightful person as well as a fabulous decorator. During this transformation of turning my house into a home I got sick. She was able to take over and when I came home this past Sunday my husband and I were overwhelmed. Never did we expect to see such beauty. She is very intuitive and it was everything and more than we could imagine. I would recommend her highly. In addition to being a great designer she is a wonderful human being.
This was our first time working with a decorator, and Melody was wonderful at explaining the process and cheerful and patient with our numerous questions. We made several changes to our foyer, living room and kitchen which, due to the open-concept design of our home, required design elements that worked together across three large areas. We so appreciated Melody’s expertise in finding from her many sources the optimal lighting fixtures, rugs, and other pieces that suited our personal taste and still complemented each other beautifully. We are very pleased with the final results – our home appears warmer, more finished and more “pulled together.” Thank you Melody for so vastly improving the appearance and comfort of our home!
Relationship: I found Melody on line. She was highly recommended by several realtors. I’m so glad I did!!!
Project Price: $10,000-$49,999
Melody did an amazing job transforming my house into a “beautiful new home”. She planned & coordinated every single detail of the project. My entire home was gutted and redone…….floors, entire kitchen, bedroom, bathrooms, living room, & dining room. She selected furniture, drapes & lighting for the entire house.
I simply told Melody what style I liked and what colors I loved. She took over from there. She spent quality time with me and was very quick to respond to every email, text or phone call. I believe she works around the clock.
Her eye for detail and enthusiasm for my home was totally unexpected. Melody is a ball of energy and she has a passion for what she does. She did an amazing job!
I would use her again & again. And, I would highly recommend her to my many friends & family. She is fabulous!!!
Thank you so much Melody
Melody, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help with our recent renovation. You made my life so much easier throughout the whole process. I don’t know what I would have done without your insight every step of the process. Coming home every day to my beautiful home is pure joy. I never realized how important it was to have a home rather than a house. You have truly changed my life and I can’t thank you enough!
Melody is a first rate interior decorator with an eye for detail and a gift of creativity. The transformation of our living room is breath taking. She truly added the WOW factor to our home that we were looking for. When the time comes to decorate another part of our home, we will most definitely count on her expertise. She was open, honest and sensitive to our likes and dislikes in all her interactions with us and it became truly a team effort.
Out of three custom interior consultants that we communicated with in our search for this type of expertise, Ms. Salazar, from Salazar Custom Interiors, was the only one that responded within a 24 hour period. She visited with us, listened to what we wanted to accomplish, made an assessment of what it would take, we talked fees and a range in price that it would cost to get to our goals.
Ms. Salazar gained our trust by respecting our wishes, shopping for the best prices without sacrificing the elegance and WOW affect we were after, and worked closely with us while keeping us well informed of expenses and arrival times and dates of the merchandise for installation. Melody is an outstanding professional and gifted home decorator. We expect to do more work with her
