Melanie Scanlin grew up in the southeast and finds inspiration in the architectural diversity of Atlanta, from industrial buildings that are now being repurposed for both commercial and residential use to the contemporary architecture of the High Museum. From an early age she knew that she would only be happy in a creative field but also yearned for something structured, Interior Design seemed like a natural path for her in college.
She is inspired by the challenge of the design problem and finding a solution that does more than just solve the problem, one that engages the end-user. Her passion for interiors spans beyond architecture and includes furniture, selections, and sustainable solutions.
While in school she worked full time holding various positions that contributed to her design vocabulary and strong work ethic. In the field she would like to use design to improve the quality of life for the end-user. She graduated from Brenau University Cum Laude with a Masters in Interior Design and Bachelors of Fine Arts and is a student member of ASID.
“I design by imagining the experience of moving through a space, exploring the emotional responses to the volumes, shapes, and light.”
