Our Story

Méli Mélo which translates to “a little bit of this and a little bit of that” is a perfect name for a decorating service that mixes beautiful objects that reflect today’s relaxed lifestyle with a sense of luxury and comfort.

Debra BlanchardMeli Melo Home Founder and Owner Debra Blanchard is a former executive with years of experience on both the wholesale and retail side of the fashion industry. Opening a store that showcases the latest trends and product designs to help clients develop their own personal decorative sense and style, seemed the next natural chapter. Meli Melo Home became a source of inspiration for home furnishings and gifts in Basking Ridge, Bernardsville then Chatham.

“I wanted to create an environment that exudes warmth and hospitality by achieving a delicate balance between old and new, antique and modern, formal and informal” and she did for over 15 years.

 

Debra also offered her expert advice and services to her clients…Whether it was decorating/styling a house to call home, staging a home that entices a new buyer or welcomes seasonal guests for the holidays, she found that the design part of the business began to occupy more of her time as she was referred to more and more clients.

It was then Debra decided to close the store and dedicate her full time to interior decorating and design. A passion which shows in each and every one of her projects.
