Melissa’s creative process is less of a process and more of a whirlwind for this busy mama of two!
“When an idea lights or inspiration hits, that is when the creating happens (often between school drop off and soccer practices!). I love when time allows for me to fall deeply into the process and transform a thought into a tangible piece of art. In between these bursts I am almost always tinkering. My studio is in my home and I am not above adding a pop of color to a painting that’s already hanging on the wall or a collage that just needs one last piece to be perfect.”

The household staple coffee table has been elevated in status in recent years and the amount of décor purely for decor’s sake has also made a tremendous statement as of late, allowing homeowners to purchase from a variety of brands, handmade and artisanal, reflective of their travels, taste and style.

“I have always been into interior design. Even from a young age, I’d be moving around my parent’s furniture and décor. They used to fuss, but it eventually turned into them asking for my opinion. Now, they FaceTime me from Florida to get design help often. I love colorful textiles and beautiful color combinations.”

While chatting, Caroline and I realized that we often both work with clients who are working with inherited family pieces or mementos, and they’re struggling with how to make it either work in their home, keep it because it’s valuable or holds dear memories, or simply can’t bear the thought of it not staying in the family – all while realizing not everything we inherit will be something we can keep.
