My name is Jill Laine, I’m the lead designer and content writer at Melrose and 12South.
Over the last 20 years I’ve worked as an interior designer, art and fine antiques dealer and broker, wardrobe stylist, and Realtor in the luxury Los Angeles real estate market.
My love of beautiful spaces, architecture, history and art influences my choices for design. That and the unique stories of my clients.
I believe the best design is luxurious and beautiful, but is also functional, easy and fun.

Two great streets. Two great cities.
Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles and 12 South in Nashville.
Our interiors are inspired by their creativity, art, nature, architecture and design.
California and its light, modern, coastal style and architecture.
Nashville with its southern manors, legendary music and rich history.
At M12 we believe in blending clean interiors with vintage, present with past, and mindfully designing your space to represent your personality.
Each design experience is expertly edited and curated.

So happy I found Jill for so many reasons! Her style sense is unique and not "cookie cutter" like so many designers I have met in LA.
My husband and I had some design challenges with our kitchen remodel and another room in the house. After meeting Jill and spending 5 minutes speaking with her about our dilemma, I knew I had chosen the right person to assist with color choices for the glass backsplash, countertop, and cabinets.
Jill also found a couple of very cool prints for another room in the house, even recommending the best type of frame so they would really pop.
I am forever grateful to Jill and her creative design choices which made our kitchen liveable, yet definitely one-of-a-kind!
Jill has a rare gift for beautiful, freshly modern and inviting design that honors both your history and what lies ahead.
She expertly and effortlessly layers vintage treasures, sumptuous textiles, personal art, and mainstay pieces into spaces that help her clients realize the home they’ve always envisioned.
Whether updating your color palette, editing seasonal accessories, or refreshing dated decor, Jill’s lifelong fashion, style and design expertise - combined with her astute knowledge of the most competitive real estate markets - make her a valued advisor... and the friend you want on speed dial.
I highly recommend Jill to clients who are looking for a fresh take on enduring design.
I hired Jill to help me decide what to do to get my house ready to sell. She was always friendly and quick to respond to my questions.
I had some artwork at my house that she told me was valuable, so that was an extra bonus!
I was impressed that she is knowledgeable about design and also art.
I like that she really went the extra mile for me and I would highly recommend her and her services.
