Meg Caswell's Design Portfolio
Meg, an interior designer from Chicago, Ill., joins the cast of HGTV Design Star season six. Take a peek at the designs that earned her a spot on the show.
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.
Girly and Comfy
Using the client's own artwork as the inspiration for the room, Caswell incorporates feminine yet contemporary furnishings and accessories
A vintage hand-woven stair runner leads to the antique grandfather's clock.
Traditional Living Space
Caswell creates a layout that showcases the stunning architectural details of the room.
Eclectic Dining Room
Caswell uses a unique mix of steel and French chairs at a raw natural wood table inspired by the Turkish rug bought on one of the client's travels abroad.
Inspired by the couple's love for sculptural art, Caswell creates a contemporary eclectic living room.
Colorful and Vintage
A collection of the homeowner's family antiques dictate the sophisticated yet still bright and lively feel of the space.
For an elevator foyer that enters into the home, Caswell needed to open up the space since there are no windows. She designs a mirrored wall and uses a lot of metallics to expand the space and create significant impact for arriving guests.
Contemporary Chic Powder Room
Wallpaper in a metallic print sets the scene for this classic and elegant powder room. Contemporary fixtures from the vanity to the sconces give the space an updated look.
Asian-Styled Living Room
The living room is inspired by the client's Asian art and love of texture and natural elements.
Caswell creates a modern nursery with graphic prints and a contemporary light fixture for a young chic couple who didn't want the traditional-style baby room.
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.
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.
An elegant floating seating area sits in the transitional space between the living room and dining room.
Bright and Comfy
Starting with the homeowner's antique rug as inspiration, Caswell uses a color palette of blue and cranberry to create a colorfully eclectic living room.
The clients didn't want the typical kitchen in their new home, so Caswell uses zebra wood and stainless-steel upper cabinets to make the kitchen feel unique custom and modern.
Elegant Art Grouping
The beautiful collection of hand-painted watercolors is the perfect gallery of art to mix with the rustic raw wood console table.
Caswell loves to combine silver and gold, which mixes nicely with the rustic leather sofa and vibrant orange chairs.
Clean and Serene
Caswell designed the client's entire home; however, the master bathroom is her favorite room. The green glass tile contrasts with the white counters, while large porcelain floor tiles make the room feel fresh and spa like.
Open Concept Living
The entire main living area of the home is designed to be one large room with the kitchen floating in the middle. Caswell uses cable lights strung across the room to accentuate the height and beauty of the wood-trimmed ceiling.
Modern Powder Room
Caswell creates drama in this powder room with dark horizontal faux bois tile, slate shower walls and molded glass countertops. Since her client's trusted her with the rest of their home, she designed this room as a complete surprise to them.
Caswell takes a risk by contrasting an antique chandelier with the rustic dining room table, but the combination works well because of the damask-printed grass cloth wallpaper.
Using large tiles on the shower walls lessens the amount of grout needed, which makes for a more seamless, clean look.
