About




My name is Melissa (Meli for short) and I live in Southern California with my husband and our three boys. In 2017 I launched this blog to share my interior design work as well as a variety of lifestyle content. I loved the idea of an interactive space where I could share my work and more. That is how Life By Meli came to be.

I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles in 2002 with a degree in interior design. Now a decade plus later I specialize in residential design. I can walk into a space and design it in my head and throughout the years have mastered how to translate that to my clients.

I truly love design and anything that requires creativity. I've found a sweet spot for interior styling as well so whether you are looking for a full design concept or just help with accessorizing your space you've come to the right place!
