Welcome to our ONLINE STORE and blog.
Each week we take you behind the scenes to the people, places and things that inspire us. This week we introduce you to our dear friend interior designer Melanie Roy.
When one comes to live in New York City and becomes part of the city you realize all worlds collide. From Broadway to television to law and finance we all cross paths on this island that spans 13.4 miles long. Melanie was introduced to Thomas and I by our dear friend and her cousin Lisa Garfinkle. We immediately hit it off and our heads were spinning on possible collaborations.
Melanie Roy’s passion for the creative arts drew her into the fashionable world of interior design and a successful second career. After 15 years in the television industry, including 10 years at HBO where she received two Cable Ace awards for segment producing on The Chris Rock Show and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, she went on to produce her greatest achievements, two sons.
This led her to turn to the design world and her career as an interior designer, creating family-friendly residences. As she says, “I have a passion and depth of knowledge for designing family homes that are truly functional and comfortable while also being beautiful and stylish.”
Raised in New York City and Los Angeles, Melanie grew up in the comedy milieu as Rodney Dangerfield’s daughter. She graduated with a BA from Emerson College where she studied Communications and Art History. Following her successful career in television, she went back to school at the New York School of Interior Design when she decided to make her career change, pursuing her passion for design.
After working with Cullman & Kravis, she started Melanie Roy Design that today handles full interior design services in New York City, the Hamptons and Palm Beach encompassing new construction, renovation, and architectural design.
We too Melanie to task with our 13 Questions:
1. What are some things you accomplished during covid
Cleaned and organized all of my closets and learned how to bake
2. How does one design around covid:
I held Zoom meetings and outdoor meetings with clients
3. Do you have a theme that may not be visible that runs through all your projects:
I always listen to my clients to determine the theme and style of a project. I design spaces with neutral palettes and then add a pop of color.
4. How do you express poetry in your design? colour , Texture?
It is the combination of colors, texture and materials that creates poetry in a space. I select a theme from an inspiration piece and build on it by adding layers of colors and textures.

6. Favourite food? Chocolate covered strawberries
7. Next stop of travel you want to explore post covid:
I want to go back to Puglia and explore. I have already been there but there are always new places to visit.
9. What inspires you the space or location? which comes 1st?
It was very challenging to move during Covid. Lead times were especially long for items that are usually in stock so I got creative and made more custom items for the space. During Covid there is nothing more important than having a comfortable and functional home.
The space is what inspires me. When I first see a space I can immediately see what I want to do with the design. I will reflect on a location in the design if it is a specific location like the beach or mountains.
10. Give us some easy ways to update our design while all being stuck at home...ex. ours was reupholstering
for a space.
11. How do you choose flooring?
It is always important to look at a space and figure out what you will be doing in it. Look at your lifestyle. Is it a high traffic area where you need an indestructible material like porcelain tile or do you want a warmer feeling in a space with wood which is mire fragile. I always select a color palate for every project which includes flooring.
12. How do you make a kids room elegant while executing a theme in a kids room?
Most kids rooms are dictated by a favorite color , so it is easy to create a elegant space.
13. Your fav project thus far has been?
