Wendy Mellinger, AIA, NCARB

Wendy received a Master in Architecture from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design in 1998. She is fortunate enough to have designed a colorful array of building types, such as: civic aquariums, public libraries and an opera house. She has now brought the scale of her work down to a residential one. Her natural eye for design along with a disciplined practice makes her uniquely qualified to make your property look its absolute best.

Whatever your reason for remodeling or moving, Wendy works with you, your real estate agents and your movers to make your transition as stress free as possible.



Ruth D'Eredita: Project Price $10,000 - $49,999

Wendy Mellinger organized and oversaw the move of our 8000 sq ft residence in Brentwood, TN, to our 6500 sq ft residence in Vienna, VA. I will never move again without first engaging her services, and when we move our professional offices in the coming year, I will engage her to oversee that move as well. She was the most responsive and the most knowledgable of all I interviewed. She provided me with detailed lists of questions to consider as we planned our move into the new house, and her observation of various features of the house and how to best manage them for our family saved me thousands of dollars and more than paid her very reasonable fee.

Bonnie Gardner: Project Price$50,000 - $100,000

We hired Wendy to help us with our kitchen remodel. We were doing most of the work ourselves and using Ikea design services, but we really needed a professional to ensure we were making the best use of the space. She created several floor plans and helped us bring a professional, polished look to our project. She made many important recommendations about the flow of the room, lighting placement, and location of appliances. We're thrilled with the design and with our (almost complete) renovation.

David Engel: Project Price less than $1,000

I contacted Wendy for design advice on a home that I had listed for sale in DC. Wendy was very prompt in responding to my request. She provided a quick summary of the service she would provide at various price levels. Once engaged, Wendy proceeded by delivering a thorough report with her proposed strategy. Immediately upon diving in, Wendy truly seemed invested in my success and provided the valuable advice needed for this project.

Eric Wolin: Project Price less than $1,000

I recently bought a house and moved very little furniture from my former home. I sought out Wendy's advice in order to validate some preliminary decorating ideas and find perspective/inspiration for a formal living room and casual family room. Given only a basic floorplan and asking only one or two simple questions, Wendy developed and delivered a design in one day. Despite the speed, it was thoughtful, taking into consideration function, flow, light and other information I never shared. I'm so happy I sought out Wendy's input - she is a pro's pro!

Carol Taylor: Project Price $10,000 - $49,999

Wendy went above and beyond staging my listing in River Creek. I would never hire anyone else and I have dealt with other stagers before. She is overqualified as she is an architect by trade but that is another advantage of hiring her. Her furniture was of the highest quality and perfect for the home. I believe the home sold because of her efforts.

jcmoors9: Price$1,000 - $9,999

We needed our house staged with very short notice. Wendy picked up our call and immediately began working to make our deadline. Her professionalism, eye for design, and hard work produced four beautifully staged areas in our house by our deadline. And we received a full price offer after being on the market for only one day. We would highly recommend Wendy for any of your staging projects. She is such a pleasure to work with and her work definitely gets results!
