Home design is a huge passion of mine!
Design comes naturally to me. I've literally been designing since
I was young - all my life! My background in Graphic Design & Marketing for three decades serve clients successfully in either the sale of their home or in the comfort of their existing home. After completing training through Home Staging Resource to become a certified professional, I have fulfilled my life-long dream of working with homes and designing spaces for others to enjoy!
I am a firm believer in staging homes to gain the most return on investment, sell homes faster, and help relieve the stress of moving. Home Staging is about the art of creating moods and emotions that attract buyers. By creating clean, crisp spaces, we invite our senses to enjoy a pure, fresh start. I will showcase your most valuable asset to it's fullest potential when selling and help make your home a comfortable, beautiful place to enjoy when staying.
I am currently a member of the local Minneapolis Chapter of RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) and have also served as a Board member. Aside from Lindahl Lane Interiors, I collaborate with other local staging companies working on consultations and stagings. I have several years of consulting experience and have performed hundreds of consultations with some of Minnesota's top realtors. Therefore, I've been through many scenarios of unique home situations, which in turn will offer you more expertise and better advice from an expert!
Melanie is awesome. She’s sensitive to my situation, and clearly knows how to maximize ones efforts. I’m really impressed with her. This gives me great guidance to work from!

We asked Melanie to come back and help us prepare for our online photos with a Picture Perfect Day session and we had an offer the first day, over asking price! I can't thank you enough for your artistic eye and for helping us make our house look the best that it can. I'm sure it paid off in the pictures and in the showings.

Melanie helped me stage my home and we had fun doing it. Our house looked amazing and it sold in less than 24 hours! I highly recommend her design and staging expertise and service.

Melanie did a great job, she listened to the projects we were already planning on and added suggestions along the way. I like the fact that the report complemented the different rooms as well as added suggested changes. The links to the product suggestions and the pictures are really helpful. She also explained that plants can be moved from room to room to make the pictures look better, so there is no need to buy 20 different small plants.

Melanie provided practical recommendations for staging our home using things we already had, and she was able to deliver constructive feedback without coming across insulting towards our personal belongings. Her advice paid off in the photos and quick sale (1 day!) of our humble home.
Kevin - Minneaplis, MN
Thank you, Melanie! Your staging advice was so easy to follow and with a small investment, we believe it helped with the speedy sale of our home!
Vickie - St. Francis, MN
We consulted with Melanie a few months before we listed our home for sale when we felt frozen in place with no idea how to make our house stand out from others. She immediately calmed our fears with the ability to see through the clutter and gave us hope that the work would pay off. Melanie worked with my ideas as well as hers; which really helped me envision the goal and keep us on track. Melanie is a happy face and genuinely concerned about our home sale outcome. She also came to stage our home, for pictures, and she quickly became a 'friend' to us and I know she will with you too!

We completed a Virtual Home Staging Consultation with Melanie in preparation to sell our home and were impressed by the level of detail and quality advice she provided digitally. Melanie is skilled at "making a house a home" and she teaches you how to look at each room through the eyes of potential buyers instead of fixating on personal nuance as we are apt to do. She is able to understand layout remotely and makes suggestions in a way that is not only professional but also kind and encouraging.

Melanie Lindahl is amazing! I would highly recommend her.
Terri - Andover, MN
Great experience, very helpful. There was a lot to do and we didn't get to it all, but we did accomplish a lot of the list, and we accepted an offer today!
Gary - Elk River, MN
Melanie was great! Very nice, helpful, had good suggestions and was really great at explaining things. It was nice the staging report organized things by room and provided specific examples of pictures and products to use. We appreciated Melanie's time and help! Thank you!!!
Jenny - Brooklyn Park, MN
I’ve worked with Melanie on two different homes. She listened to my ideas carefully and provided me expert advice in picking paint colors, flooring, and carpeting. She helped me with the decision support I needed during a rather stressful move. It was well worth the money to hire a professional like Melanie.
Karen - Eden Prairie, MN
Melanie did a great job getting us prepared to begin our home selling process. She had many suggestions on how to use our existing stuff. We would highly recommended her.
Dennis & Pat - Minneapolis, MN
Melanie, we appreciate you taking the time to look over our house and give suggestions for staging and minor home changes/updates.
The report looks great, and gave us some helpful direction before listing our home. We were even able to tackle some of the minor things over the weekend. Thanks again!
