Inspired by fashion and borrowing a palette from nature, Melanie Turner‘s interiors possess a timeless quality that celebrates architectural details and classic design. In her first book, Inviting Interiors: A Fresh Take on Beautiful Rooms, released this spring and published by Rizzoli, she shares her secrets for creating sophisticated, glamorous, and functional rooms. Balance, scale, light, and subtle coloration all factor into her designs, creating a timeless effect.
Divided by look, the book features multiple homes illustrating each style. “Calm” showcases cool, white interiors, accented by natural textures like wicker and bone. “Clarity” celebrates graphic, contrasting rooms filled with black and white. “Collected” revels in richer colors, accessorized with lush velvet, rich patterns, and metallic accents. “Color” celebrates the power of a palette-driven interior, from spring green, to pale pink, to midnight blue. “Cool” is driven by a funky 1970s vibe, with macramé chairs and Moroccan accents.
Melanie is an advocate for not only surrounding yourself with beauty, but also living beautifully. Art and collections are signatures of her edited designs. Her passion for designing beautiful interiors changes the way people live.
“Today’s modern lifestyles demand so much of our energy and creativity, and homes have to go above and beyond simple function to truly nurture us. I believe in the promise of beauty to greet us, comfort us, and envelop us at the ned of a long day,” Melanie says in her introduction.
