Latest press release:


...and brings Sanibel with her

Interior designer, Melinda Graham, has had her fair share of national

recognition over the years. Not only has her work been featured in

numerous magazines and books, but she has also appeared on multiple

television shows on networks such as the Discovery Channel, HGTV, Oxygen

and NBC. Three and a half years ago, Melinda relocated her interior design

and retail business of 15 years to Sanibel Island. Surroundings by Melinda

is now a year round home d├ęcor business on Sanibel featuring her own

signature style which she refers to as “comfortable beach chic”. The shop

is filled to the brim with vintage beach inspired items for the home and

wonderful unique gift items sure to impress.

Now as a full-time Sanibel resident, Melinda has been thrust back into the

national spotlight. Melinda’s home was chosen to be photographed for the

magazine Romantic Homes. Graham’s previous home and business have been

well photographed but this will be the first time her Sanibel residence

has been chosen to grace the pages of a national magazine. The magazine’s

editor, Jacqueline deMontravel, arrived on Sanibel in November to shoot

Graham’s home and local shop. Graham had arranged for the editor and her

family to stay at the historic Island Inn. Over the summer months of 2011,

Melinda was commissioned to design the remodel of the Island Inn on West

Gulf. The renovation of the Inn was featured in a special addition of the magazine called

Romantic Living. Currently on newsstands, you can see a sample of Graham’s

work and a lovely article about the Inn and Sanibel Island on pages 18 and

19 of the magazine. Feel free to call Surroundings by Melinda for details

and magazine availability. For additional pictures of the design

renovation of the Island Inn you can visit Graham’s blog at

“It is a privilege and an honor to have my home and shop selected to

appear on the pages of a magazine once again. I was thrilled to be able to

share the spotlight with a local iconic landmark like the Island Inn.”

Graham’s home will be featured in the April 2012 issue of Romantic Homes

magazine and her retail shop will appear in the holiday 2012 issue…just in

time for Christmas. For information about Melinda’s design work, retail

shop and availability of the magazines you can call Surroundings by

Melinda or visit her website at
