INTERIOR DESIGNER TAURANGA
Melanie Jayne Design is a boutique interior design studio, based in the seaside city of Tauranga in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. MJD specialises in residential and commercial interiors.
Interior designer Melanie loves nothing more than creating beautiful, functional spaces for her clients. Her areas of expertise are residential design, and interior styling for family homes, holiday houses, investment and commercial properties.
Melanie Jayne Design can help with the selection of all finishes and fixtures, kitchen, bathroom and cabinetry design, lighting design, and the selection of window treatments, furniture, art and accessories. We collaborate well with architects and landscape designers, and building contractors.
We’re able to provide our clients with below-retail pricing through our access to trade-only suppliers and wholesalers. Your pieces will be designer-sourced and of the best quality – at a lower price point than if you bought them yourself!
Melanie Jayne Design will help you define a clear vision, and create a cohesive space you will love. Melanie and her team will oversee the entire project to ensure a smooth transition from planning to execution and completion.
Dip.Interior Design + Cert.Design
New Zealand born and bred, Melanie has always been fascinated with design, architecture, colour, form, function, and structure.
She grew up in Auckland and studied a Certificate of Design and a Diploma of Interior Design through Unitec, and got her first taste of work experience at an architecture firm whilst completing her studies.
Melanie was lucky enough to be employed full time as soon as she graduated.
"I continued learning and growing in residential interior design by working at two major architecture firms in Auckland. Funnily enough, I ended up getting a role as project manager back at Unitec, where it all started with my study in design."
Melanie went on to work with a global design consultancy in the field of commercial developments. Her role involved prototyping and manufacturing design elements, design documentation (CAD), estimation, tenders, engineering and project management.
In 2012, Melanie moved to Australia, where she continued to develop her skills in the commercial building and engineering aspects of design, and progressed into senior project management roles.
Melanie loves meeting and working with people, and seeing her clients thrilled with their end result. While her passion has always been with residential interior design , she also loves working on commercial interior design, which present a different and equally exciting challenge.
Melanie lives in Paengaroa on a kiwifruit orchard, with her partner, their two boys , and the family fur kids – dog Rocco and cat Kiki.
Working with Melanie Jayne Design was a pleasure, the most important aspect for us was how easy it was to communicate with Melanie, she was extremely easy to work with, and was very intuitive, listening to our ideas and needs but also helping us to think outside the box – we are delighted with the work she has done on our house to date and look forward to working with her.
