Creative genius Melissa James loves mid-century modern style
and decked her halls with wows and folly for a
party for family (that’s us!) the other night.
Wanna know her recipe?
It’s a unique Midcentury Mod mix tempered with
wisdom culled from heroes including
Paul McCobb and Charles Eames.
*Showbizzy lights over a piano.
*Original contemporary art.
*A treasured sparkly fez.
(Yes, a fez. What screams Rumpapumpum more
classically than a bust of David in a vintage fez?)
Bonus ingredient to make a holiday fete feel even sexier?
Just add fur.
WHO EVER SAID THAT PLEASURE WASN’T FUNCTIONAL?
ART RESIDES IN THE QUALITY OF DOING. PROCESS IS NOT MAGIC.
THE ROLE OF A DESIGNER IS THAT OF A VERY GOOD, THOUGHTFUL HOST
ANTICIPATING THE NEEDS OF HIS GUESTS.
A dark horse is right at home in Melissa’s beachy den.

Three generations dined, sang, danced, and deeply connected
against a festive backdrop artfully rendered by Melissa.
EVENTUALLY EVERYTHING CONNECTS.
Happy New Year, friends.
Peace to you right where you are.
