CONVERSATIONS WITH Melanie Zaelich

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melanie Zaelich.
 

Hi Melanie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.

The idea of someday changing careers from a Graphic Designer to a Home Stylist happened after I was on an episode of HGTV. At the time, I was 10 years into my career and I had recently bought my first house. A local production company reached out to the advertising agency I was working at and I quickly submitted to be on the show. That experience planted the seed.

 

Nine years after the HGTV episode, in 2015, I was ready for a big change. As a designer, my passion over the years shifted from graphic design to interior design and I was ready to embrace it.
 

While I was still at my full-time job, I started decorating and staging homes on the side. After seeing my friends light up after the transformation I made in their home, I was hooked. It felt so amazing to be able to bring such joy to people.

3 Things You Don’t Need on Your Bathroom Counter, According to Home Stagers

By Grace Cassidy

The bathroom counter is among the places in the home that gets the most use. It’s where people often perform their grooming rituals, whether that’s washing hands (for 20 seconds or more!), getting ready for the day, winding down for bed, primping for a Zoom happy hour, brushing teeth, plucking eyebrows, or applying pore strips.
