We are two peas in a pod. Sisters from another mister. Horders of design and sorcerers of vintage style. We love to create beautiful spaces filled with pretty things.
I’m Mel, a self confessed hoarder of style and design with a love of gin and an unhealthy obsession for fur coats.
My entire life so far has been spent hunting through op shops and markets to find unique bits and pieces. I don’t believe it is luck when you stumble upon something beautiful – it’s a craft and a talent passed down from my Mum and Nana.
I have a background in fashion design and have worked for the past four years in the residential building industry as a pre-start and colour consultant. I have always loved the interiors game, although it wasn’t until I met Soph I realised I could turn my passion into a job that I love!
I’m Soph, a style and design fiend with an infatuation for the unconventional – I have a reputation for wearing sequins on a Monday, lame on a Thursday and have more1980s vintage leather in my wardrobe than anyone I know.
I’m a true European – making a house into a home is my true love. My mix of Polish, French and British heritage has given me an appreciation for mid-century furniture, art and design, and I spend my Saturdays scouring vintage stores and Sundays at the local markets hunting for treasure.
Despite more than 10 years working in marketing, design and communications, I have realised my calling is creating spaces you want to come home to. After completing a large scale renovation on my own home I caught the bug, teamed up with Mel and haven’t looked back!
Welcome to Design Horde – we are Melissa and Sophie xo
