WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Meghan’s penchant for design began at a very early age. Born on the East Coast, but raised in Texas, the mixture of casual southern charm with East Coast classicism continues to influence her design philosophy. After studying art and design at Providence College and FIT, Meghan worked in London, New York, Boston and Dallas where she gained valuable experience in space planning, color theory, furniture design, lighting, and visual merchandising for industry giants like Burberry, Conde Nast, and Crate & Barrel.
In 2006, Meghan set out on her own and started Meghan's Inspired Interiors in Dallas, TX with the goal of making interior design more accessible. After a move back to the East Coast Meghan relaunched Meghan Shadrick Interiors in 2010.
Often seen as intimidating, Meghan believes good design should be attainable to varying budgets. It is less about starting from scratch than starting with an item of inspiration that may already exist in the home, such as a collection of pottery or a chair that has been inherited from a family member. The combination of bringing together old and new, traditional and modern, high end and low end is what gives a room its soul and individuality. "Clients often have a good start to a room with some key pieces, but it's the layering and filling in of new furniture, artwork, accessories, and finer details that make a room feel complete." The result is a space that is fresh, unique, and a true reflection of the client. This is very rewarding for both the homeowner and Meghan. Its a partnership with the client, and a successful design is one that the client truly feels at home in.
Meghan's work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Small Spaces Big Ideas, Houzz, and Apartment Therapy as well as numerous blogs.
Meghan currently lives with her children, Liam and Cora, and her husband, Dave, in Arlington.
