Melanie’s Thrifted Home

We’re continuing the USA theme as we travel to Southern California to meet Melanie. If you wanna know a little bit about her, Melanie is originally from Bath, UK (big up!) but now lives in the USA and can be found under the account ‘The Printed Home‘ on instagram. It’s here she showcases her beautiful house where she lives with her husband and two daughters. She’s a graphic designer by trade with a background in interior design, so is naturally a lover of combining these two passions via her art print shop – the instagram name makes sense now right? Enjoy this tour…

Our Interview With The Homeowner:

How would you define your style?

Airy and organic, layered California casual.

What is your favourite spot in the home and why?

Our main living area. It includes my office, our swing chair, a play area, and lounge area, and is where all the action happens!

Where do you find your inspiration

I’m inspired by natural materials – pretty wood tones, woven textures, and inviting color combinations. My childhood was spent in the English countryside, and that plays a part for sure

What was the biggest challenge when designing your home?

Finding furniture pieces and accessories that are stylish, functional, and kid-friendly, without breaking the bank. I like a challenge and enjoy creating solutions that evolve with our family.
