Meet Melissa

Hello there! I’m an Interior Designer and Co-Owner of Welsh Design Studio, LLC. I grew up in northern California, and attended college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I met Andrew on the very first day of freshman orientation. I spent 15 years working as an Aerospace Engineer and Manager before deciding it was time to pursue another passion – interior design! I recently completed a master’s degree in Interior Architecture & Design from the Academy of Art University. 

I enjoy finding creative ways to improve both the function and appearance of a room, and add some unique character and charm to a house.  I just love the beautiful trim work and built-ins you often find in older homes, and my go-to style is simple, classic design with a farmhouse, coastal, or industrial vibe. 

Andrew and I have two great kids who make us laugh, sometimes make us crazy, and always keep us busy. I love to be outdoors, play volleyball, vacation with my family, enjoy a glass of wine with friends, watch science fiction movies, and daydream about home improvement and design.

Meet Andrew

Hi! I’m a trained Woodworker and Co-owner of Welsh Design Studio, LLC. I also grew up in northern California, and was given the opportunity to play football for the University of Colorado at Boulder (go Buffs!). After graduating with a degree in Environmental Studies, I began a 13 year career teaching high school science and coaching football. Melissa always had “plans” for our homes and we spent many a weekend updating and improving our houses in California with a limited budget, often learning as we went. A couple of years ago, we decided to move back to Colorado, where Melissa still keeps me busy with lots of “ideas” for our new home. Now we are excited to use our experience to help others improve their homes with custom built-ins, trim work, and furniture. When I’m not in our workshop you’ll find me reading, hanging out with my family, or watching sports. 

Our Shop

I love a great buy, and I love to buy home decor!  Unfortunately, home decor can often be expensive.  With my retail license, I can purchase fabulous items at wholesale prices, and pass the savings along to you!  I want everyone to be able to afford great home decor and accessories, so I make sure to keep my prices as low as possible. As a matter of fact, you may find many of our items being sold at big name stores for two or three times the price!

Our shop was created from the desire to share our retail finds and unique creations with all of you.  We have hand-selected only the best items to include in our shop that you can use to furnish and accent your home. I have many of our shop items in my own home, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do!
