Meet Mel

Melody Salazar, owner of Salazar Custom Interiors, offers floor to ceiling interior design services, as well as real estate staging consultations (“Sell Your Home Fast”) for homes that are going on the market.  She provides services from Washougal, Camas, Vancouver, and all surrounding areas working with homeowners and agents  to produce great changes for living and profitable results with staging guidance.

Melody’s training began in the early 90’s when she received certification in Residential Design at the University of St. Mary’s in San Antonio, TX. When redesign and staging began sweeping the country and statistics showed what an amazing selling tool staging was for real estate agents and homeowners, she received specialized training in this very specific design technique. She received IRIS (Interior Redesign Industry Specialists) certification in this field by studying under Sandy Dixon in Colorado http://www.interiorarrangements.com/

Melody’s philosophy on interior decorating is geared towards ways of obtaining a warm, luxurious and inviting environment, which truly reflects the owners’ personalities.   Her finished rooms offer a one of a kind look that invite you in.   “It is not necessary to invest a fortune to have a unique home that says WOW in each room.  This feeling should not be beyond anyone’s reach”.

My specialties include all aspects of interior design; including complete custom transformations to budget minded re-design, working with what you currently own. No job is too big or too small.

Relationship: I have been a store owner, manager of a national franchise upholstery company for over 21 years and a sales representative with this company for 9 years. I’ve worked with Melody Salazar for over a year now.
Project Date: September 2015
Project Price: $10,000 – $49,999

I am a sales representative for a custom order upholstery furniture company! I work with
designers across five states who purchase sofas, chairs, ottomans, headboards, etc. from
the manufacturer I have represented for over 9 years. There is no question at all that
Melody Salazar – Salazar Custom Interiors – who has been buying from me for over a year,
is the most thorough – detailed – dedicated and caring designer I’ve ever worked with.

Melody takes pride in her work and is not in this profession strictly to make money –
she truly cares that her customers are more than just satisifed with her work. She takes
care to ensure that she is meeting their needs for comfort, quality, styling, and pricing. She is always dedicated to staying within the customer’s budget! Recently we have worked together on a project for a homeowner who is seriously ill and Melody has given it her very best to have the project finished on time – without stress to the homeowner! The customer is extremely pleased with the “new home” and is home from the hospital and enjoying the haven that Melody has created for her and her grandchildren. I could
name many more projects like this one that Melody has successfully completed – meeting
the desires, budgets and deadlines of her customers.

Relationship: I knew she was the perfect fit for us the first time we met
Project Date: October 2015
Project Price: $50,000 – $100,000

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.

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!
