Katherine B. Melvin

Birmingham, AL

Katherine Bramlett Melvin founded her full-service interior design firm in 2016 in Birmingham, Alabama. Katherine’s love for design began at early age weaving in and out of antique stores and art galleries with her mom. Later she studied art history and architecture at Vanderbilt, UT Austin, and in England at Oxford University. Her classical education and travel coupled with her southern design roots have shaped her sophisticated yet welcoming aesthetic. Katherine believes that all great projects start with listening to the client’s lifestyle needs and dreams for their space. She then works to bring the client’s dream to life in a fresh way— creating a space that is updated but lasting in style. She loves to find clever ways to mix the traditional with the new, and always leaves space for something delightful and unexpected. She hopes that spaces she designs will serve only to further enhance the beauty of every day life. Today, Katherine and her wonderful team work long and happy days from their studio in Mountain Brook village. They currently have projects from Alabama to the mountains of North Carolina to San Fransisco. And they look forward with great excitement to the things to come.

It’s no secret that every piece of furniture @theceh makes is gorgeous, but we needed to rave about them today for a different reason. Have you been following their stories lately? We have been so inspired and humbled by their dedication to their customers that we had to share…

Last month their delivery driver quit mid-delivery with no notice. For weeks now, Diana and Justin, the owners of @theceh have been driving cross country with their children, personally delivering the remaining pieces to make sure customers get everything in time.

Follow along in their stories as they share more from their nationwide delivery road trips and tap the link in our profile to learn more about @theceh on their #TTLDirectory page. { Design @lizziecullencox 📷 @laureywglenn }
