From Top Shelf to IKEA, I grew up
thrifting with my mom Claire and buying retail with my dad Norman. My mom showed me how to mix a pair of designer label slacks with a no name, $7 blouse. She was always saying “you can make that” to something that was over-priced (or maybe that she didn’t want me to buy!?!). This all translates directly to my budget-conscious, selective interior design style."
Principal of her own Los Angeles-based, full service Interior Design firm, Studio MG Interiors, Inc. for nearly 10 years, Megan has a pedigree from design royals Kelly Wearstler and Alexandra and Michael Misczynski and has the training to know what good, lasting design looks like.
Seeing the accessibility increase drastically in the last few years, Megan decided there was a niche to fill and a need to be met for the many people who watch DIY television and have Pinterest pages full of images and great ideas for their homes but aren’t quite sure or don’t feel confident enough to execute them alone.
Capitalizing on her keen eye, budgeting and sourcing expertise, and ability to work with clients in every style, Megan created roomLift. roomLift is an a la Carte, mail-order interior design solution that helps people nationwide achieve the unique and personal spaces they want and ultimately love where they live!
