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!
I was raised in Swampscott, and earned my degree at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, where I received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics. My career in interiors began in the furniture business, at Today’s Home in Middleton where my primary job was retail. Here the design bug really caught me. I was forming wonderful relationships with my retail clients and this was creating opportunities for me to do additional design work and even whole homes! I transitioned from Todays Home, eventually to Roche Bobois, a high end European furniture company located in Boston.
I enjoyed the different, more modern aesthetic that working at Roche Bobois afforded me. The owner of the store, who at the time owned six stores down the East coast, offered me the opportunity to move to South Florida. The move to South Florida proved to be a fortuitous one as I met my husband and eventually branched out on my own. It also introduced me to one of my mentors and to discover the benefits of environmentally friendly practices. I began to incorporate this knowledge into my own design practice. Eventually it became clear that it would be beneficial for both me and my mentor if I merged my business with theirs. 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 2009 ASID South Florida Design Excellence award for Sustainable Design for a commercial project.
In addition to my career in environmental design, 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 change in firm for my husband brought me and our newly increased family back to the North East. After taking some time off to be with my 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 am enjoying 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 Salem with my husband Jon, our son Samson, and our dog Sugar.
