Melissa Louise Lifestyle and Interiors is the seed of my very own design agency. At this stage built on my passion for Interior Design, Melissa Louise is a side line project that in collaboration with other designers creates unique Interiors.
One of my first collaborative projects was “Made in Brasil Beauty and Boutique”.Made in Brasil is a new brand that has finally arisen in Cape Town. They stock bikinis, lingerie, gym wear and shoes. Apart from the unique apparel and accessories on offer, this high end Brazilian boutique also has a section dedicated to all your beauty treatment needs from hot stone massages, waxes, hair treatments, manicures and pedicures. See their price list here.

Not only did I have the privilege of conceptualizing this design, I attended the red carpet launch on the 18th of July 2013 where Made in Brasil celebrated the opening of their doors for the first time in true Rio party style with a live Capoeira troop performance, canapes and refreshments. It was a whirl wind experience having conceived this idea and now having it blown up in 3D. Vivid colours, amazing textures and all. The talented, Jane, my partner and project manager on this project is from Covet Design, go have a look at her website.
“This little gem has brought the celebrations of the fiesta to Cape Town. The ambiance is chic and elegant, showcasing gorgeous and sexy lingerie and swimsuits, the brands worn by the movie stars. Stunning Brazilian landscapes cover the muralled walls and set the perfect environment for those relaxing beauty treatments and massages.” – Brides Essence magazine.
The salon is based in Greenpoint, Cape Town. Made in Brasil is an ideal place to host a bridal shower, pamper/bachelorette parties and matric dance preparation. For more information please contact them directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website.
