by anne

interior designer melanie coddington’s “girly modern” style is is a feminine but unfussy combination of antiques, vintage and flea-market finds – here all set against a dreamy blue and cream palette. today we’re lucky to have her show off her charming turn of the century cottage in a sneak peek. melanie has been in the place since 2007 and her main challenge has been editing in order to really showcase her favorites in the 1,400 square foot space.
