I’d like to take a breather from babies for a moment, will you indulge me? You’re probably breathing a sigh of relief, ha! I recently had the pleasure of visiting my friend Chanee Vijay, the owner and designer behind Melongings Studio. A recent transplant to Philadelphia from Charlotte, we discovered we have mutual friends and lived a few blocks from each other down south! Such a small, small world. Once set up in her new, beautiful studio here in Philly, I had the opportunity to take a tour of her historic home in Society Hill and see where her creative visions are brought to life! 

Chanee began her business in 2011 with the goal of creating beautiful, hand printed, organic textiles for the home. Each hand-pulled screenprint and blockprint is created with regard for our health, the environment and longevity. The elegant designs are unique, neutral, and compliment almost any decor…I personally love the shimmery metallics collection. Head over to her site to check out the latest and learn more about her fabulous company!



  1. Susan, what a fun afternoon we had together! I really needed that ‘ladies lunch’ chat time with you. It feels like we’ve been friends for a long time. I hope to do it again very soon. Thank you so much for this wonderful blog post.

  2. I needed it too…we must do it again soon. Yes, it does feel like we’ve known each other for longer-love that! My pleasure Chanee :)
