What our clients & partners say about us

Melissa helped us with our design, renovation and decorating of our home. It was a pleasure working with Melissa. She was very knowledgeable in all areas (building codes, suppliers for materials and decor, CAD drawings) She was always organized and stayed in touch with us regarding all aspects of the project. She has an incredible attention to detail. Melissa created a stylish, beautiful and comfortable home for our family. It is the perfect home for entertaining from the open plan kitchen and family room to the wine room. The powder room wallpaper is a favourite along with the custom family room sectional. I can’t wait to work with Melissa again.


From the moment you meet Melissa the principal of Innovart Design, she sets all her energy and attention into making your home dream come true. She is talented, managed a very close personal relationship with excellent furniture and design retailers, has great sensitivity to budget, photographic memory and keen perception of what the client wants that really helps to facilitate a fabulous experience and trust-worthy collaboration. When little things went wrong, as they always do, Melissa was relentless in resolving these issues quickly. Melissa is also generous with her time and is always available for questions by phone or email. I would recommend Innovart Design / Melissa Tovar to any of my friends and family and I look forward to working with her in the future.

Melissa was referred to me by a co-worker who had used her for extensive renovations in her home… from wine cellar, to bathrooms, to couches and more. My need was just to have a custom sectional fabricated which I had been thinking of for a long time for my family room. From the first moment I was certain that I had the right person for the job. Melissa listened very well to my required details and we brainstormed a few ideas. She soon returned with 3 VERY DETAILED digital sketches set in 3 D within my own digital family room that really impressed me. To see that detail within the setting at hand was key. I simply picked one of the 3 designs and met her at a studio to touch and select the fabric. The sofa was delivered ahead of schedule and Melissa was present at the delivery and returned a week later for a minor tweak (a matter that was out of her control) and as well reviewed after care instructions in detail. I am also very happy with the fees she was able to negotiate on my behalf with the manufacturer and found her professional fees to be very fair as well. I look forward to working more with her in my home and business now that I know who she is and what she can do for me.

We have recently hired Innovart Design for a full makeover of our 3-bedroom apartment in downtown Toronto, including: Kitchen, bathrooms, living and dining. From the first meeting with Melissa (Head Designer) to the full completion of the project, we had an exceptional experience. We were truly impressed by the level of professionalism shown by the team and how innovative their proposals were. Melissa has a personalized approach that helps us maximize our budget while respecting our needs and tastes and by adding her personal and unique touch. Melissa also helps us on the furniture and colour selection that gave our home the final WOW effect that we were looking for. The project was completed on time and within budget so, for all these reasons, we would highly recommend Innovart Design to everyone and we would use them again. Awesome Job – We LOVE our new home!

I hired InnovArt Design to help me locate a chair that I fell in love within London, England. It was upon describing this chair to Melissa that she took the project on with a challenge to find it for me here in Toronto. Several months later, not only did she find them for me, but we ordered them, and they arrived before Christmas! Melissa truly went out of her way to help make my Christmas in 2016 perfect!
