In August we were asked to style a set for E! Entertainment, for this Lovely Lady ~ Melissa Moore, she is the bestselling author of Shattered Silence and has been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, People Magazine and Discover.
Our first consultation we discussed her style, budget, selected paint colors, and then the shopping began...
Melissa loves the beach, ocean, and cottage look, which we felt was a perfect fit, for her and the style of her home. She already had several wonderful furniture pieces to work with, so we just filled in and layer her home with creamy off white cable knit throws, lots of soft pillows, candles, shells, a natural braided chenille jute rug, a very large original oil painting which was purchased from an artist at 'The Art on The Green', in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. A large rectangle ottoman was purchased and slipcover in white canvas and is used for a coffee table in front of the leather sofa. We hung a natural woven tote with leather handles, filled with flowers she loves, on her hall tree, and an over sized basket with driftwood of all sizes and shapes was placed in the corner of the living room.
When the camera crews arrived, Melissa told us she didn't have to scramble to find pieces that would give the room a polished look, she felt content and was able to focus on the details of her interview.
We feel her home know reflects her personality, it is warm, charming, cozy, interesting and inviting.
We are continuing to add pieces to her lovely cottage home, most recently we added a coral lamp and a very sweet chair, to her office. Hopefully we have given her a beautiful and serene space to live, she so desires to have a peaceful refuge.
If you haven't read her book, please do! She has chosen to be a bright light, and gives to others so graciously. She is truly one of the most courageous women we have ever met.
Thank you Melissa, we have enjoyed working and getting to know you.
We will be posting pictures soon.
