Hi there! My name is Melonie, and super excited that you’re here! I’m a quirky and creative 3rd generation Florida-girl, and I absolutely love everything about the sunshine state! Well, maybe not the latter part of summer, so much. But mostly everything else! I’m a wife to a great guy, and a mom to three amazing littles. Two of them are twins, and the oldest is a very bright and talented 11-year-old competitive dancer. I’m also a girl-boss with way too many years of experience in advertising and marketing to mention here. Time really does fly! I’m so happy to finally be starting this blog as a much needed creative outlet.
For as long as I can remember, my heart was happy when I was making things pretty. It started when I was a little girl, and I’d go with my Grandmother (who was a self-educated interior designer) to some of the finest homes in South Tampa to consult with her clients. We’d swoon over luxurious fabrics and décor. Then we’d go home and I would watch her create some of the most incredible custom window treatments and upholstery that my little eyes had ever seen. I would also try to recreate the looks in my little Barbie house…over, and over again! And now, I do the same thing in my own home. Create looks, and then recreate them…over, and over again. My husband is a patient man! Especially during the holidays…oh, you just wait and see!
I believe that a home should be a place of peace and a reflection of who you are. That simply means that I tend to make my own rules when it comes to design and décor. We recently purchased our 3rd new construction home, and I would love it if I could share the journey of house-to-home with you! Thank you so much for visiting, and I hope to share something you like. Something you can connect with. I’m totally obsessed with all things décor, style and the occasional DIY. I also love myself a great bottle of wine! So I’ll share all these things with you, and maybe you’ll stay for a while. Please enjoy this journey in The Mellionaire House.
