Melanie Barnes, Creative Director


Elixir Interior Design provide interior design services for clients in and around Brighton & Hove and beyond.

‘I founded Elixir Interior Design in 2012 after graduating from City College, Brighton (NCFE Interior Design Levels 1, 2 and 3) and have been designing homes and properties since.

We’ve been featured in various publications over the years including Prestige, Houzz, Latest Homes and Etc.

Every home should be a joyful expression of individual style.  Our passion for interiors and flare for unlocking your design aspirations help us deliver a truly personal service.

Our homes should encompass functional and practical needs and we always listen to your requirements.  We bring to life what is in clients heads, even when they can’t visualise or articulate it themselves.  Using drawings, scaled plans and sample boards, we make sure our clients have a clear vision of the end result even before the first piece of furniture is bought.  Using our knowledge of classic style and current trends, we can produce beautifully creative design schemes.

For larger or more complex makeover projects, we can coordinate with your appointed trades to help deliver your design to specification.

We love producing design schemes which honour the history of older period properties, including Grade II listed.  We also work alongside other professionals including architects to carefully balance aspects of modern living with the unique integrity of these special buildings.

Whatever your vision, together we can expertly create the home you have always dreamed of.’

“Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable” – Donna Karen
