Utility House Design Co.

A boutique design studio specializing in modern simplicity and classic vintage style. Supplying quality stationery and handmade goods throughout southern Ontario.

Utility House is exactly what it sounds like: a functional home office. But it's also a place where design is both useful and aesthetically pleasing.

Early summer 2015, I decided to open my very own workspace. Over the years, it has evolved with me as I pursued new passions and interests. From vintage stationery and packaging to antiques and textiles, I’m always sourcing inspiration to bring a unique style to any project I complete.

This space exists so I can share these passions with you.

I specialize in bespoke wedding and event stationery while offering occasional opportunities for designing and resolving interior spaces. My goal is to work with you to create custom pieces that are as practical and useful as they are beautiful. I'm here to help you bring your creative visions to life, all out of a small house in Burlington, Ontario.

Welcome home.

    Attention to ALL the details

    Getting our invites was a great experience from start to finish. Melissa was welcoming and had TONS of options around how to print, what to print on and colours. Melissa was so patient in walking us through how it all works and had gorgeous samples to help us figure out what we were looking for. She was attentive, and responsive and didn't mind all the fiddly little changes we wanted to make to the copy.
    Invites were packaged and delivered beautifully to us.. I almost didn't want to send them! She was able to give us simple, vintage inspired, elegant invitations which we've had so many compliments on!

    Melissa did an amazing job with our invites - she is so very talented , we're in awe at how she was able to take what we had in mind and put together the most beautiful invites we could have dreamt up. She was available and helpful throughout the whole process - a true professional.

    Not a great experience, major delays in getting things done, and the quality of the paper used for the wedding invites was sub-par. She was creative and her art work is beautiful, but would not use again.

    Wedding invitations


    My experience with Melissa was nothing less than perfect. From the moment we first met I knew our styles aligned perfectly and that she was going to create something truly special for us. There is no one better than Melissa, she is extremely talented and is able to figure out exactly what your dreaming of and make it a reality! We were in love with our invites, save the dates, thank you cards, menus, seating charts and all the signage for our wedding. I love working with Melissa so much I have not used anyone else to create all my other paper needs, she has done birth announcements, Christmas cards, bridal shower invitations, birthday invitations and anything else I’ve ever needed. Choosing Melissa to work with was the easiest and best decision I made.

    Working with Melissa has been an absolute life-saver. Utility House Design Co has given us beautiful save the dates, bridal shower invites, and wedding invitations we will forever remember and cherish. And soon to be thank-you cards! Melissa is very attentive and took care of our needs time and time again (even when we needed several invitations to be re-written or changed). Her service is prompt, professional, and personal. She makes sure you are entirely happy with her work, and never complains!! It was really easy working with Utility House :) Definitely recommending it to my friends!

    Melissa was friendly, patient and very accommodating. My husband and I were completely overwhelmed and indesisive and Melissa understood exactly what we wanted after just one meeting. Her prices were unbeatable and her talent was AMAZING. We got everything designed (invites, menus, signs, etc) by her and couldn't have been happier! She truly is a sweetheart with crazy amounts of talent. This girl hit it out of the park and I can't thank her enough!!!

    Fantastic!

    Melissa was fantastic to work with and she is so creative you can rest assured you are in great hands; your stationary for your special day will be beautifully curated. My invitations were one of my favourite parts of my wedding planning. I had her do our thank you cards as well and she did, again, a beautiful job. I highly recommend Melissa for any stationary needs you may have!
