Meg Caswell's Design Portfolio From HGTV Design Star season six 2011

Meg Caswell
Age: 33
Chicago, Ill.
Meg says she began her career in design the moment she decided not to attend law school. After she earned a degree in criminology, she soon enrolled at The Art Institute of Chicago where she earned a B.F.A in interior architecture. The interpersonal skills she learned during her criminology studies helps her develop a profile of her clients and uncover their true design preferences. As the owner of a design firm and a home décor store in Chicago, Meg characterizes herself as a determined, direct and high-energy competitor. She describes her design style as a preppy mix of modern and traditional, but she also counts the vibrant pastel colors of “Palm Beach chic” among her favorite looks.

Chic Living

Inspired by the couple's love for sculptural art, Caswell creates a contemporary eclectic living room.

Classic Blue and White

An octagonal dining room is accentuated by the circular table and light fixture, while the horizontal-striped fabric helps to continue movement around the space.

Simply Elegant Dining

The kitchen eating area is inspired by the client's minimal, monochromatic style.

Traditional Living Space

Caswell creates a layout that showcases the stunning architectural details of the room.

Colorful and Vintage

A collection of the homeowner's family antiques dictate the sophisticated yet still bright and lively feel of the space.

Sophisticated Seating

An elegant floating seating area sits in the transitional space between the living room and dining room.

Light and Airy Living

Caswell designs a living room for a well-known artist and uses the artwork as the focal point of the space.

Family-Friendly Kitchen

The family kitchen features an oversized island for preparation and seating. The space also opens to the family room and a fabulous hidden pantry behind the walnut doors flanked by two refrigerators.

Contemporary Living

Caswell loves to combine silver and gold, which mixes nicely with the rustic leather sofa and vibrant orange chairs.
