MELANIE SAMO

Office Manager

What draws you to home building? It's something near to my heart to help others to thrive and one of the most important environments to thrive in, is our homes.  I feel honored to get to be a part of such an impactful part of people's lives.


What is your favorite design style? I love working in many design styles, but my own aesthetic is modern with transitional aspects.


What is your favorite food? Hmmm.. this is tough, cause I LOVE food.  Asian food is my favorite genre, if I had to pick a specific item, it's probably pho.  I make it myself and it beats any restaurant.  I am also an avid dark chocolate lover.


What's the best place you ever visited?  I went to New York with my oldest daughter because she was interested in going to University there, and I loved it so much, that I went again, just a few months later, by myself.  If you can navigate NYC, you can navigate anywhere! It was such an empowering experience for me, that I will forever have a love affair with NYC.


What book are you reading (or about to read)? I like to juggle between a few books at a time.  I am currently reading "Born a Crime" by Trevor Noah and "Getting The Love You Want" by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.


What home trend are you excited about for 2019? I am truly excited to see people sourcing home items from artisans and creating artistically designed spaces in their homes.  As someone who loves the color black, I am loving seeing all the black rooms that people are creating, and I love the look and functionality of the, once commercial, black-framed windows that are making their way into residential spaces.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, I am also on board with the "peach trend".  When done tastefully, these two colors can transform spaces!
