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 left retail to pursue design, then followed her heart back into retail. She now offers her gorgeous products at Julian Gage Home Collections, occupying an 1865 church in Oldwick, New Jersey.

Debra also offers her expert advice and services to her clients…Whether it’s decorating/styling a house to call home, staging a home that entices a new buyer or welcomes seasonal guests for the holidays.
