Certain homes have you at “hello”. Each space in this type of home was usually done with such precision and taste that it not only inspires you but also expands your senses and teaches you something new. Melody’s home, from @MyHouseOfFour, does this to me. It opens my eyes, makes me look at the details carefully and I know that what I see here won’t be forgotten easily.
I feel honored and very happy to share Melody’s perfectly designed home on the “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series today and I hope you a minute to get to know her and to see how she designed every room. I know you won’t be disappointed.
Hello my name is Melody and I am behind “@MyHouseOfFour” IG. I am very excited to be featured as one of The Beautiful Homes Of Instagram. I have enjoyed immensely all the gorgeous homes Luciane has featured and I am super honored to be one too!
I was born and grew up in South Africa and I trained in classical dance and graduated with a Business Degree. I have always been very passionate about interior design and styling ever since I can remember. My first bedroom makeover as a 12 year old I was very particular on creating the perfect “blush” as my wall color. I also was very fortunate to travel and work in Europe and Asia because I followed a dance career in my early twenties. Later, I immigrated to the US and after living in Chicago and California I settled in Las Vegas. I am married and mom of two growing boys. My husband, Roger and I own and operate a talent and event company based here in Las Vegas.
After having two boys we realized we needed more space desperately and decided to build in beautiful Southern Highlands, Las Vegas. We love the neighborhood, all the beautiful parks and it is in a good school district.
Luckily for me my husband allows me to make every design decision from the finishes, furnishings and accessories to the exterior of our home. I have come up with all the design decisions and worked with my contractor closely to implement them. The backyard I did come up with the design concept and all the finishes and hired a pool and landscape contractor. We still have the second level to complete. This space is designated to our boys bedrooms and playroom. I am planning to complete this project by summer this year. I would describe my personal design style as neutral, clean, comfortable, leaning towards classic but with a coastal vibe and edgy twist.

I love this added storage space. I saved by adding floating shelves instead of upper cabinetry and added the beadboard behind too. It is also where I display my favorite bowls and platters.
I decided to add refrigerator drawers so my boys could access waters and snacks easily instead of using the kitchen fridge.
I wanted a white open kitchen that had several spaces for food prep and our family and friends to congregate. A white paneling was added to the ceiling where there was a slight ceiling pop out. The center island has a built in table that seats 8 and features carrrara honed marble counter.

White wainscotting contrasts against grey walls and floor tile.
The boys wanted to share a room so I added a set of twin beds from Serena and Lily with a fun striped rug from Pottery Barn. The stripe wall color is painted.
Black and White Striped Wall Paint Color: Black Stripes Paint Color: Behr Black 2300 in Eggshell. White Stripes Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.

This cozy loggia features an outdoor firplace and plenty of comfort and style!

Pool & Spa
The pool and spa was designed and built 3 months after we moved in during winter.
