Melanie Turner 1



Living on a budget started as a necessity for Melanie Turner. As a newlywed, Melanie desired the finer things in life but wasn’t willing to go into debt to have them. Turner’s eye for stylish, expensive-looking décor paired with her commitment to saving money led to her creating the YouTube channel, “Living Luxuriously for Less.”  There she shared tips on living reasonably and on a budget through DIYs, interior decorating tips, and how to's. Five years later, the channel has more than 100,000 subscribers and is endorsed by the shopping app and website Retail Me Not.  Creating videos for YouTube also uncovered her niche for planning both intimate and large scale events. 
Thus she and her husband launched Luxe Studio—an intimate event venue for luxurious events and a full scale event planning firm that specializes in celebrating those  monumental moments in life!
Melanie will be joining us on the Fresh Ideas stage Friday and Saturday to share her top secrets for shopping, dining, celebrating, decorating, traveling and enjoying everyday life for less.
