Melody's Musings

Stuff that catches my fancy and random, sorted thoughts from the inner scrambles of my mind.

What you may expect to find here are what I consider good taste and some of the best in photography, philosophy, humor, art, architecture, food, music, poetry, literature and dance. I hope you like some of the things I enjoy.

I like anything to do with good design such as interior design, architecture, photography, and art. I enjoy philosophy and psychology. I love to figure out what makes individuals tick. Music of most all types but particularly classical, world, pop, acoustic guitar is a big part of my life and add some dance to the music and my day is great! I like to write and occasionally I will write poetry and I really love to read it out loud and I even record it sometimes.

I'm a Myers-Briggs type ENFJ which means I love people and have a great interest in them.

I guess you could say I'm a humanities kind of person. :)

In Bloom

Sweet floral cushions and curtains paired with distressed wood create a lived-in look that’s perfect for summer’s lazy days. A bucketful of hydrangeas is as complicated as a centerpiece should get.

    Garden Inspired Style
Not much can beat lazing in a backyard hammock on a summer afternoon. The blooming plants, the warm sunlight, the nap-inducing sound of birds… who wouldn’t want to lose the to-do list and lounge for a while?

    Savvy Salvage Finds
For a subtle take on natural decorating, pair primitives with organic forms, such as branches, rocks, and wood. Burnished metal pendants with rope-covered cords set an industrial tone in this dining area. A French hay fork hangs as sculpture on the far wall, nodding to farmhouse rusticity.

    Subtle Botanicals
Botanicals never look anything but elegant. Paired with traditional furnishings, they bring pastoral sophistication to a room. Frame and mat botanical prints and hang them in a grid. Don’t be afraid to take over an entire wall — the ivory mats and simple colors of the prints keep the look subtle.
