The Living with Art: Interior Design Stage

Meg CaswellHGTV Star Meg Caswell Highlights The Interior Design Stage

Located at West Main and First Streets

Meg Caswell 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 completed her B.F.A. in interior architecture. She began her design career with Ralph Lauren Home, but quickly set out on her own, launching her Design Shoppe in a well-known Chicago neighborhood.

Launched into the national spotlight as a top interior designer in 2011 when she won Season 6 of HGTV’s “Design Star,” Caswell has gone on to host her own show, “Meg’s Great Rooms.” In addition, she has starred in specials, including “America’s Best Kept Secrets,” “HGTV Home Makeover” and “America’s Most Embarrassing Living Room.” Caswell is also a regular on local Chicago and national television talk shows, including ABC’s “Windy City Live,” NBC’s “Open House,” “Fox News” and “Good Day L.A.” You will also see her featured in national ad campaigns for both Lowe’s and Big Lots. 

From designing a single room to multi-million dollar homes, the HGTV star is comfortable working within any budget. With a determined, direct and high-energy personality, her design style boasts a preppy mix of modern and traditional looks executed in vibrant colors. With Caswell’s background in criminology, of course she is an expert at uncovering and solving “Design Crimes.

Caswell brings her unique approach to interior design with appearances and meetings with design clients throughout the country, as well as at home in her Wilmington, NC store: Fifth and Castle.
