Owner | Designer

Melanie Bowe, owner of En Vie Interiors, has been doing interiors in the Wilmington area for over 25 years. She moved to the area after college where she assisted Elizabeth Lowe for 6 years before starting her own antique import/interior design business in 1995. She has numerous wholesale accounts and great relationships with area contractors.

It is with great enthusiasm that she joins the team at Uptown Market. "It feels like a natural fit as I believe that trends are severely over rated...if you love something it never goes out of style. The trick is knowing what you love. That is where I can help the most. I listen to you and help you create an interior that works for you...one of a kind design!"

Melanie offers hourly consultations or whole house design. Give her a call and learn how she can help you create an interior you love!
