     Hello and welcome!  This is officially my intro post on my new and first blog ever, YAY!  I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now and finally got it going.  My first obstacle was coming up with a name.  I pondered for many months and finally while doing some research on the dictionary (yes, I said dictionary), which then lead me to the thesaurus, which is where I ultimately searched the terms "conglomeration" and "mixture".  To get a little boring for the moment, the synonyms came back to exactly how I would describe my design style; assortment, collection, combination, cumulation, mishmash, medley, etc.  I then translated medley into French and wham.... mélange appeared.  And there it was, I loved it and it just seemed to be a perfect fit, so Mélange Designs it was!
       Let's back up for a moment...  I am a proud wife, to the most amazing husband ever - so very blessed to have him by my side!  He is the pea to my carrot.  See, when we got married, our design styles seemed to be the polar opposites of each other.  We both have a love for all things old; more specifically, old houses and antiques.  We've filled our old, 1927 Craftsman Bungalow with lots of both old and new.  With a great deal of love, hard work, and dedication, we've combined our styles to make what is now our house of style, that we both love and enjoy!
      So, welcome to my blog and enjoy a few pics of my amazing little family!
