Hi, everyone! I’m Melissa Lee and I’m the Principal Designer here at New South Home. Can I tell you how excited I am about our new Fall product launch?!? We’ve been dying to add some cozy wool plaids, smaller modern prints, and black and white pops to our line to keep up with the fresh new home decor trends that we see out there!

For my personal style, I am typically a “transitionalist” based on the traditional home I grew up in. I love it when new modern prints emerge that I can mix with the classic patterns that I gravitate towards. I have always been a huge fan of the color navy (even before it became the new neutral in the home decor world) and love adding a preppy pop of emerald green. I singlehandedly picked our new Ginger Fabric even though there were groans from the others in the office (ha!) and, of course, had to include it on my own personal family room design.

Melissa's Fabric Choices

So Ginger Navy (she also comes in Black and White HERE) is hardly modern, and could definitely be described as “kitschy”, but it is right in line with the huge chinoiserie trend that is prevalent these days that I personally love! I am a big fan of painted bamboo furnishings and accessories, modern chinoiserie prints, and blue ginger jars. In my “dream” family room, I also included our new Velvet Shimmer PearlZanzibar Navy from our Summer line, and an 1-Letter Block Emerald Monogram Pillow to complete a fun and Southern style room.

I used a neutral base with white walls, gray drapery panels, and a linen sofa and added in my pops of color through the accessories that I chose. We typically use this formula in our own homes as well as our client’s –> it’s quick and easy to update a room by changing out the accessories to bring in a whole new style or color scheme. All of the items featured in my room above are from the furniture manufacturers that we work with for our projects, so if you see something that you like, feel free to drop me a line at melissa.lee@newsouthhome.com. We can either direct you on where to purchase it or provide you a quote to order it through us!

We hope that you had fun learning a bit more about each of us and our personal styles! Our goal when working with our clients is to make sure that their individual style is reflected in their home and it’s fun to come up with different color, style, and pattern combinations to create the perfect home for them!
