Tori Mellott began her career in publishing in 2001 at House Beautiful under the reign of the legendary Marion McEvoy, then went on to work at Elle Decor as the associate style editor, at Domino magazine as the decoration editor, at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia as the creative deputy of merchandising, and most recently at The Nate Berkus Show as project designer. Her contributor credits include Hamptons Magazine, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, The Ritz Carlton Magazine, Veranda, Lonny Magazine, and Teen Vogue. While she enjoys styling photo shoots, hunting down fabulous product, and sifting through musty antique shops, she would much rather be living in India, wearing caftans and head wraps, and designing bespoke stationery.
