Melissa Krause studied Interior Architecture and Design at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, California, and has worked creatively for over two decades acquiring practical knowledge that enhances her design style.
She was a design consultant for several years in a custom frame shop in Napa, California, where some of her customers included high profile Hollywood figures.
Melissa also used her creative abilities in floral design and event planning in Napa, California. While part of the floral design team at Hedge Row, an exclusive floral shop, her work was featured at several of the finest restaurants and wineries in the Napa Valley. Later she operated her own floral design business, Sweet Peas Distinctive Floral Design, focusing primarily on creating floral arrangements for weddings in the Napa Valley and the San Francisco Bay area.
After transitioning to the Washington, DC area, Melissa acquired several years of experience working with Classic Seams, whose clients have included the U.S. Department of State, and whose work has been published in Chesapeake Home magazine. Here she gained skill designing window treatments using a wide array of fabrics and hardware. Melissa Krause Interiors is pleased to partner with Classic Seams as desired by our clients in order to more fully serve their needs.
