About Me - the FUN stuff:
I am a designer who designs for her clients, not herself. I’m a mom, a wife, an image consultant, a sounding board, a friend and a source of inspiration.
I am here to, in some cases bring out your inner design diva; did you know she was hiding? For others, I am here to help you to create a welcoming, refreshing retreat. It all depends on YOU. That is my one hard and fast rule, you, the client, HAVE to be happy. It is your home and you live there.
A large part of what I love about my career is that every project and each client is different. I am attracted to all types of designs and styles and would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. I am allowed to express my love for all design styles through my clients, which is a gift. While I love to be able to have different clients, each with a unique design aesthetic, I also realize not every client is MY client. Not everyone can be a fit, and that is ok. But by having a designer you fit with, you are assured to have the home, room, space of your dreams!
My Story - the details
I was raised in Swampscott Massachusetts, and earned my degree at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, where I received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts. My career in interiors began at a local furniture store, Today's Home, where my primary job was retail. It was during this time that the design bug really caught a hold of me. As I was forming solid relationships with my retail clients I was creating opportunities for additional design work. I transitioned from Today's Home eventually to Roche Bobois in Boston.
I enjoyed the different, more modern aesthetic that working for Roche Bobois afforded me. During my time at Roche Bobois in Boston I was offered the opportunity to move to South Florida. This proved to be fortuitous as I met my husband and eventually branched out on my own. While in South Florida I met the acquaintance of a woman who came to be one of my mentors and helped me to discover the benefits of environmentally friendly practices. While working as the Assistant Design Director for the award winning environmental firm Eco Décor in North Palm Beach, I earned the designation of a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional), and was part of a design team which won the 2009 ASID South Florida Design Excellence award for Sustainable Design for a commercial project.
During this time in South Florida, I also formed Eco Universal (www.eco-u.org) an environmental 501 c 3 nonprofit organization. This has been one of my greatest accomplishments to date. Although I was forced to put the dreams surrounding this nonprofit on hold, I continue to be a strong advocate for environmental friendly design. I try encourage using ecofriendly products, practices (why buy new, when you can refinish?) whenever my clients and their projects are open to them.
A job change for my husband brought our newly increased family back to the North East. After taking some time off to be with my newborn son, the design bug caught me again. After a quick stint with a local designer I decided to again venture out on my own. As the principal of Megan Meyers Interiors I enjoy forming close relationships with my clients and helping them to achieve the home of their dreams one room at a time. I currently live in Marblehead with my husband Jon, our son Samson and dog Sugar.
