This is what people say about us:
Adnams has worked with MBD for many years and was pleased to appoint them again for the refurbishment of the Adnams Crown Hotel bedrooms. Melissa and her team worked closely to the brief which was to reflect the Adnams brand values throughout the design. They used local craftsmen and trade suppliers and utilised sustainable timbers, eco-friendly fabrics and recycled materials. We are delighted with the results, particularly as the work was completed on time and in budget!
Melissa and her team at MBD listened to our original thoughts and skilfully formulated them into a coherent plan, taking on board our ideas and the constraints of working with a listed building. As a local company, MBD helped us to find the architect and builder. Melissa liased with suppliers and managed the project throughout. Her skills in designing the overall layout, choosing colour schemes, furnishings and lighting, resulted in the outstanding renovation of our home. Without MBD's expertise we could not have completed the project.
MBD interiors have worked for us on three domestic projects. We have always been very impressed with the professionalism of Melissa Billen, she has a friendly attitude with the ability to translate our ideas in reality. We have had quotations that are detailed and accurate and delivery times that are realistic. The end result has exceeded our expectations and the whole process from concept through detailed planning and efficient execution has been a stress free and pleasurable experience. We highly recommend MDB Interiors and it's director Melissa Billen.

As clients who had pretty strong ideas about what we did not like, but not entirely clear views on what we wanted we were delighted to have had Melissa's help, guidance, patience and understanding.
The fact that we were also able to do the project all in one go was not a problem for Melissa, who was able to introduce us to design classics alongside well designed but more affordable items to enable us to achieve our overall look as well as budget.
We love our house and walk it through every day and are wowed.
Melissa and her team were extremely detailed orientated and took the time to listen and observe the way we live our busy lives. She took time to work through our likes and dislikes and used all this information to provide extremely thoughtful and beautiful room ideas and boards for the house. Her design team covered all aspects from carpet to flooring, sanitary ware, paint, wall paper, lamps, lighting design, floor tiles, external lighting, fabrics and furniture. Her work was excellent and her resources were unique and wonderfully designed pieces.
Our objectives were complex. We wanted a practical family home, yet timeless and elegant. Melissa listened endlessly to our often changing needs and criteria and used her expertise and knowledge to create our amazing family home that we absolutely adore. Thank you.
We have worked with MBD on 4 major projects now, and I would happily work with them again.
Working with Melissa is very satisfying as she doesn't impose her design ideas. She absolutely listens to your aims of the look and feel you are trying to achieve and then comes up with some great ideas and solutions. She then works with you to get them just as you would like, so you still feel it is your project and the results are personal. In addition, Melissa and her team provide excellent technical back up and procurement. Her drawings are detailed to the last degree, and can leave no builder in doubt as to what has been specified.
