Hello! My name is Melanie Thomas and I love getting weird with interior design. I'm what you call a "repressed California-maximalist". Translation: "I like earthy, hippie dippy things with a touch of neon and glamour."
I've been fortunate enough to travel throughout my life and have an appreciation for all things exotic. Farmhouses are great and all, but what about the grandeur of a centuries-old Islamic temple - or a London flat filled with pop art? Both can coexist quite beautifully.
Most of all, I believe design should challenge accepted aesthetics... yet go fearlessly past one's comfort zone. "If you're into that sort of thing."
