So nice to have you here, Studio Melissa Louise is a creative design firm based in Hermanus, South Africa, servicing clients from Cape Town to the Overberg region.
With a focus on Interior Design, we also offer a hands on candle making workshop experience. The SML Candle Making workshop covers the basics of candle making with a fundamental focus on hand poured vegan soy wax scented massage candles.
Our interiors are inspired by an enquiring contemporary aesthetic and timeless classicism, with a respect for materials, combined with natural textures and traditional craftsmanship. We believe a space should be functional, beautiful and sentimental – that is design magic!
Inspired by our recent brand refresh, we are working on new and exciting products for you to shop. If there is a particular product you would like to see listed on our store, send us an email with your suggestion. We would love to hear from you.

The Home Enthusiast Column
I have heard so many renovation horror stories in my life that I knew I wanted to get someone like Melissa on board to manage the entire process end to end, and my goodness was it worth it. While myself and my husband both work full time jobs, having someone project manage every detail is just a dream, there was literally no stress about product deliveries, managing the builders, on site issues etc, Melissa handled it all. It was a beautiful seamless process to go through with Melissa; from designing to choosing the finer details and even the demolition, she kept us involved & up to date the entire time. The project finished on time (how rare is this) and our kitchen honestly just blew me away, it was exactly what we imagined and more. We are over the moon with the results and we cannot wait to do more renovations with Melissa in the future.
Studio Melissa Louise helped bring my dream apartment to life! Melissa truly goes above and beyond with her service. Right from our first meeting where she took the time to really understand my vision. Through to presenting us with a number of detailed drawings and mood boards that truly reflected my personal style and taste. We really valued the comprehensive research she did sourcing all the materials and fittings, coming with us to shop, as well as guiding us through the building process. I can highly recommend Melissa for any interior design project and would work with her again. We are so happy with the outcome. Thank you!
Working with Melissa was an absolute pleasure – she understood our tastes and preferences immediately. Her moodboard and vision was everything we didn’t know we wanted! She took all the hassle out of the process for us by helping us choose and shop for every item we needed and the finished product is something we absolutely love and are so proud of.
I could not have done this project without Melissa and her team. I was super-impressed with her energy and efficiency..many many thanks!
Studio Melissa Louise completely transformed our dull, out-dated bathroom into a modern, chic and elegant space fit for the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Our vision for the space was expertly executed by Melissa and her team. Thanks to their professional eye and attention to detail, our new bathroom turned out to be even more beautiful and functional than we could ever have imagined!
WE HAVE MOVED
*our little home run studio is bursting, it has been for some time…
We are growing, stretching and constantly adapting – it amazes me, how resilient us humans are. The search for more space paired with the global pandemic we are all experiencing has lead us to the beautiful seaside town of Hermanus.
We will continue to offer our full services to our Cape Town clients, online and on site, with a team based in the city and on the coast we are excited to explore this new working landscape with you.
Get in touch to discuss your upcoming project, shop online and find new ways to live abundantly despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in. We cant wait to show you our new space.
