Prior to moving to Oakland, this cottage was Melanie’s design lab for a number of years. She wanted a beautiful jewel box that wouldn’t break the budget or compromise quality. The result is a girly modern showcase of Swedish and French antiques, America mid-century and flea market finds paired with modern items and art. The living room beaded wallpaper, the dining room Venetian horse chandelier and the custom velvet sofa and vintage moth lamp in the den were a few of her favorites in the home.
