Creating a child's room that's as magical as it looks in magazines, yet practical for real-life children might seem like mission impossible, but it's not...
Welcome to Leo & Grace, I’m Mel, and I’m here to help you create a room for your child that they’re head over heels in love with, and that you love too. And that fits seamlessly with the rest of your beautifully styled home, naturally.
Here you’ll get the support to create a space that suits your unique little one and their quirky loves, tastes and habits, all in an affordable and accessible way.
I’m committed to getting to know you and your child, and ensuring their room expresses their character, as well as caters to their age, their needs, and is designed to last through the years as well.
From finding suitable storage options to ensure the toys those garish plastic toys are hidden out of sight, to creating an entire room that looks Pinterest ready but is practical, liveable and fun as well, I offer a wide range of interior design support to fit exactly what you’re looking for.
As a mum of two, I know that family time is the most precious, and I believe your little one’s room should be as fun and beautiful as the memories you’re making in it.
Together we’ll create a beautiful room for your child to sleep, play and grow up in.

More about me...
I'm Mel - mum to Thomas Leo & Georgia Grace, lover of design, magpie for all things beautiful, and a stickler for perfection - and I’m here to help you create a dream space for your little one.
As a mum of two myself, I know how difficult it can be to create a space that your young ones love, that suits their personalities, and that works with your stylish taste as well. (I know how fussy they can be too!) The high street looks are too babyish or gender specific, while the opposite feels too twee, and you want to find a scheme that has a balance of on-trend colours and patterns and is suitably personalised to your kids for their ages and beyond too.
That’s why I work really closely with parents like you, and your children, to help you bring your ideas to life. You know your child best, so I take guidance from you to create a place that suits them perfectly, including the perfect blend of fun, laughter, imagination and practicality.
As a self-confessed research addict, I’ve discovered the very best children’s brands and retailers, from around the world, that supply the most stylish looks, trendy pieces and safety conscious materials to create your personalised scheme.
I transitioned from a fast paced job in the city to doing this work I love, so I could spend more precious time with my children. Because, let’s face it, isn’t that what it’s all about? That’s why I’m so passionate about helping you create a space they adore and that you can all enjoy together, to create the kind of precious memories that last forever.
You can be rest assured that your kids will be as important to me as if I were designing for my own. You’ll be completely listened to, your personality and my little clients personality will be completely infused into your new room, your space will be adapted to perfectly suit your family lifestyle, and you’ll receive the real value and quality you’re looking for, with my dedicated support at every step.
Let’s face it: with a household to run, a career to tend to, a family to care for (or all of the above), it’s time you let someone take care of the work for you.
You’ll get my undivided attention from our initial consultation through to bespoke design, and project management.
How do we work together?
I take into account how you live as a family, what the space is used for, and how you can utilise it in the best way possible. From awkward windows, to sloping ceilings, I’ll design a space that incorporates and utilises the quirks of your space, as well as the quirks of your kids.
Equipped with the most tasteful safety precautions to perfect lighting options and the best of blackout blinds, you’ll sleep easy knowing that your new room is safe and healthy for your little one as well as being a space that sparks their imagination for a full day of play. (So they’ll sleep easy too.)
I know what you’re thinking: ‘isn’t interior design expensive?’
Here’s the thing: I’m here to make this service accessible for you. Whether you’re looking for a simple storage solution for an awkward space, or an entire room redesign, many options are available, depending on your needs.
Whether you’re looking for a little inspiration, or an entire room design, get in touch with your ideas or requirements below, and I’ll get back to you asap!
