Jill Laine

Melrose and 12 South

My name is Jill Laine, I’m the main designer at Melrose and 12South. Born from the love of two great cities: Melrose for Los Angeles, and 12South for Nashville. 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 Los Angeles luxury real estate market. My love of beautiful spaces, architecture, history and art influences my choices for design. That and the personal travels and stories of my clients. I believe the best design is luxurious and beautiful, but is also functional and easy to live in. M12 specializes in modern interiors with pops of vintage items and art, resulting in a space that is truly and uniquely all your own!

"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 make her a valued advisor."

~ Gretchen D'angelo, Princeton NJ

"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. 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."

~ Heidi Eckard, Santa Monica CA

"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."
