Melanie Molesworth {Interior Stylist}

Melanie Molesworth is a freelance Interior Stylist who recently contacted me to share her portfolio. I thought you may find it inspiring since she's worked on a few of the beautiful rooms we've seen in Livingetc magazine.

I'm always excited when stylists reach out to me because I think that working for a magazine in that role must be challenging and a great push for a stylist to stay on top of trends and to constantly look for new creative ways to display things. Sometimes I see decorators and interior designers get stuck in ruts and continue to produce the same look over and over again, nothing that new or original. The same sofa flanked by end tables, a coffee table, zebra rug, and a stack of books somewhere topped with a shell. Then they move onto the next client and they pretty much get the same sofa-table-zebra-shell treatment. Although it's important to have a signature look that defines your style as a professional in any field of design, it's equally important to challenge yourself and learn new things to avoid creative stagnation.

Melanie shows a great range and creativity and I really like her work. I'll have to follow her blog regularly to check in on her projects. Thank you Melanie for writing in!
