When more is MORE!

OOOH. I SO-O-O-O love this and I am so doing something like this in my new home, uh, I mean office.


Our customer, Heather Mueller of Metamorphasis Designs in Ogden, Utah spent a year working in this wonderful home in Las Vegas for a wonderful woman that just wanted more, more more pattern. That would be my dream client.


Heather masterfully layered pattern after pattern using a combination of Modello Designs and Royal Design Studio stencils all throughout the house. They even used some patterns to make the molds for the individual tiles they cast and put on the ceiling.


For some of the panel designs they also incorporated stencil designs from The Stencil Library. Props to Helen and Chips. Did I mention that I LOVE this?

    Wow, This client does love pattern and color. Would you say that they “live out loud”? You did a wonderful job implementing multiple patterns. I can see why it was a year long project.

    Al I can say is “WOW, totally beautiful!!!!” How in the world did she put that all together like she did?

    Thank you Melanie for loving this project enough to post it on your personal blog. I am very grateful to be included. As far as the kind replies about it’s beauty and success, I would like to mention that I did not do this alone by any means (if I had, I don’t know that it would have ever been finished). My partners, Todd Oberndorfer and April Long contributed their own amazing strengths and talents, combined with long, grueling labor to bring it all together. Without them, I would have been lost. Thanks again for the post, we are so happy to be included!

    Nice combination of Italian renaissance and Moroccan salon styles. It comes off well, I think.

    Wow Heather this is beautiful. I knew it was going to be amazing when you described it to me, but this just blows my mind. I can only imagine what it looks like in person. Way to go! I got your message the other day, and I am planning on phoning you tomorrow. My job is not in a very good cell zone at the moment!!
    Take care,
