INTERIOR DESIGNER / OWNER
Melissa Link, even at a young age, was redesigning & organizing rooms. As a junior in high school, she found her way into Engineering class & so the love of design and drawing began. In 2001 she graduated with a degree in Interior Design. Melissa spent the first half of her career designing homes all over the US, traveling wherever her clients would request before returning closer to home (Langdon, ND) to raise her family. She resides in East Grand Forks with three amazing boys & loves the Greater Grand Forks community.
In 2018, Elle Interiors was born with a focus on enriching the environment of others! Melissa enjoys listening to her clients' needs, using her background & experience to bring those visions to reality — designing beautiful spaces where clients can find comfort in their spaces and enjoy each other.
INTERIOR DESIGNER / STORE MANAGER
With an eye for color, designer Patty Liden spent nine years with Sherwin Williams, selecting paint colors to change homes into the warm environments her clients desired. The past 12 years have seen Patty transition from her colorful beginnings to working with all design aspects, including tile, flooring, window treatments and accessories, all to convert the “envisioned space” for her clients.
Achieving the space to fit the personality of the client is the work found most rewarding, and at the end of the project, reflecting on the transformation and taking pleasure in the delight of the ones who will enjoy it. Patty believes that successful design is not about just making something beautiful — it’s about helping people build an experience.
