Based in the UK and with projects worldwide, Melissa Wyndham Ltd features as one of House and Garden’s leading interior design practices.
Since 1985 they’ve developed a portfolio of understated elegance, and a body of work spanning classic country houses, modern flats, and ski chalets. They’re admired for their flexible approach, artful pairing of the contemporary and antique, and ability to work collaboratively with their clients to meet both practical needs and aesthetic tastes.
Vanessa Macdonald, who now leads the company, trained under and then worked alongside the late Melissa Wyndham for 14 years. Prior to that, she studied Art History at the University of British Columbia, completed a graduate degree in Fine Arts in New York City, and served in Private Client Services at Sotheby’s London.
With both Canadian and Venezuelan roots, Vanessa has made the UK her home. She’s married with two teenage sons and splits her time between Oxfordshire and London. Melissa Wyndham’s design studio also includes Alice MacFarlane and Vincent Dane.
