Melody does not expect the look to appeal to her forever, because she is too devoted to her own personal growth. "I have always found that changing my home has been a metaphor for my soul," she says. "All change is connected. Living here, my style of writing is changing and so are my friends."

She warned her interior designer from the beginning: "I told Antonia that color is very spiritual and when I get to the next state of transformation, I'll need to change it. I said, 'The redo on this place is going to be wild.'"

Oriental motifs on the bookshelves remind Melody of her journey to China and Tibet. The watercooler was slip-covered in fabric, to make it less conspicuous.
