Meilin Bristiel was born in Santiago, Chile. She was educated and lived in France, New York, London and Guildford. After a career as an equine veterinary surgeon, she decided in 2005 to make her long time passion, interior design, her full time occupation. Her projects include the extension of the Notting Hill house redesigned by John Pawson (London, UK), the complete refurbishment of an 18th century farmhouse in Vaison-la-Romaine (Provence, France), the renovation and extension of a modernist house, Casa Fuentes in Vitacura (Santiago, Chile) and the refurbishment of a Haussmanian flat near Marseille’s Vieux Port. While living in Chile, she opened a gallery in Santiago’s historical district Barrio Brasil, called Mei Line. The offer was refurbished vintage furniture, along with her own design pieces, a range of outside furniture made to measure by local artisans. She currently lives in Marseille, France. There she started her passion for textiles, she perfected her skills in natural dying. The success of the bathrobes and home dressings that were only originally intended for Mas La Romaine led to create Mei Line. To explore the collection click here.
