Located at 2925 W Wilshire Ave., ME (for sisters Mindy Brown and Elaine Price) Home is at once light and airy, inviting and comfortable, and coming in is practically guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. That’s not surprising – since when asked how she would describe the aesthetic of the store, Elaine says, “Happy. We want people to feel welcome when they walk in. We want to help people create homes that feel the same way.” Mission accomplished.

► About ME Home
To say that ME Home is a family affair is an understatement. Mindy and Elaine both recall always wanting to have a business together. Mindy remembers the two of them having conversations on this topic in her kitchen as far back as 1998. But until February of this year, the timing was never right. They also credit their beloved grandmother, Gladys Balyeat, with inspiring them with the love of design. And great design it is.
