    Episode 19 - The Vale London - Melinda Marquardt

    The Vale London was founded in 2017 by Melinda Marquardt. After working in sales for an American textile company for seven years, she decided to start up her own business.

    Partnering her education in fine art with her many years of sales experience, Melinda created the Vale London to provide exquisite textiles and wallpapers to the luxury interiors market.

    Each pattern starts out as an original piece of art work; illustrated by hand and produced by the finest mills. Each metre of fabric or roll of wallpaper is a piece of art for the home. Texture, colour and design work symbiotically to create each unique piece. Melinda creates timeless designs that will adorn windows and walls for many years.

    Episode 18 - Now that you know better. DO BETTER!

    Episode 18 - Now that you know better. DO BETTER!

    Welcome to my final installment of Race in America. I am hopeful that America is FINALLY moving in the right direction. We must keep our foot on the gas! We must re-write laws that benefit ALL, not just a few. Please know that this is not a check the box situation. THIS is a lifestyle commitment. This is a change in behavior. This is using your privileged platform for POC. I am optimistic. Please don’t let me down. Do the work. Do it as if your life depends upon it...because it does! Now that you know better. DO BETTER.

    Episode 17 - Nuances of Racism

    Episode 17 - Nuances of Racism

    Welcome to part 2 of a 3 part series on Racism in America. Normally, I discuss design but in light of what has transpired in the last few weeks, you are going to hear what life is like in America for people of color.

    I want to thank you for joining me on this journey. I also want to tell you to keep an open mind and heart, as that is how we will HEAL! This is about moving forward. This is about having an open honest dialogue and forcing America to look at the under belly of racism and all of its ugliness.

    Together we can conquer hate and those who this way.

    When you know better, you do better!
