Meet Melissa

I’m Melissa Louise. I’m an Interior Designer at Zana based in Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa and the author/editor and drive behind Melissa Louise Lifestyle and Interiors.

This is a platform where I share/focus on unique interiors, cuisine, entertainment and general lifestyle antics that appeal to me.

I graduated at BHC school of design with an HND in Interior Design and went on to complete my Btech in Interior Design at the Cape Peninsula university of Technology. I have since gained experience in furniture design,  hospitality design/service and creative direction and management.

My design style lends to a classic  use of simple, clean design pieces within a contemporary setting. The combination of vintage, ethnic and contemporary items create a timeless space with essence. I relish in the use of bold pattern and texture…
