Designer, Owner


Melissa Butter is a highly motivated and passionate Interior Designer with over 12 years of design experience under her belt. She graduated from Sheridan College in 2008 and studied Architecture & Art History throughout Italy. Interior Design was always something Melissa knew she wanted to do from an early age. She loved touring model homes with her parents on weekends and watching home shows as a little girl. After working for both commercial and residential design firms for over 9 years, she followed her heart and opened up her own specialized design studio, Graceful Interiors + Design. Her design firm embodies classic and natural designs and blends elegant with rustic and modern with traditional, to create interiors that are full of warmth and grace.


Melissa has designed a wide range of homes throughout her career, and is well versed to take on projects that range in style from modern, transitional and even heritage. She has been a part of custom home builds, as well as entire home renovations.


Melissa lives on a 100 acre farm with her husband and two children. They renovated their century old Victorian style farmhouse that has been in the family since the 1800’s. They continue ongoing renovations to their home and property. A home tour of her space, room by room, will be added to the website soon!


“The biggest compliment I receive is when someone walks through the door and says “wow”! I know I have created something that is unique and special. And it gives me joy knowing it will be a space my clients will love coming home to.”
