Megan Young


Thank you, Southern Living, for introducing me to Megan Young. I've said it before, but I find myself eagerly awaiting my So Li each month to check out the home section, as they have been featuring some great designers and spaces...and this month was no exception!

Megan Young's colorful, ecclectic and gorgeous home in North Carolina was featured...and it's a doozy. The picture up top is actually from her portfolio, but here are images of her own home, featured in the mag:

And more woah.

I'm in love. This home is SO wonderful - every room is vibrant, sophisticated, classic and young at the same time. I think Megan's use of color is perfect - and her philosophy is near to my own heart - use what you love!

Well, I'm downright enamored with MY, if you can't tell, and went running off to her portfolio and it did NOT disappoint. She is so talented.

Check out this eye candy (I went a little nuts with pictures again...I just wanted to show them all!):

Some more from her own home in NC:

Are you loving Megan's gasp-inducing aesthetic as much as I do?? I have comments for every picture I posted, but for lack of time, I'll let you enjoy them sans commentary.

Megan started working in NYC, went to design school there and worked wtih Alex Papachristidis before making the switch to North Carolina (which I believe was her home) and starting her own firm.

I will certainly be keeping my eye on her work...I'm sure there is more to come from her!

    I love the headboard pictured in the June issue of Southern Living on page 83. How would I go about seeing how much a design for a king size bed would cost with a different material.
