Six months after taking on her first design job, Meredith landed on the first of three shows she would do for HGTV, including "Restaurant Makeover,” that also aired on the Food Network. She has been a frequent design expert on national television programs ever since.
The vibrant redheaded founded her own firm nine years ago, featuring a bold and distinct style that blends the classic and the unexpected while always complementing each client’s unique lifestyle.“I wanted my DXV bathroom to be opulent without being ostentatious,” Meredith says. Drawing fixtures and fittings from the Golden Era’s Fitzgerald and Wyatt collections, she combined the best of Art Deco with the modern conveniences we have come to expect in bathrooms. “The space is both decadent and luxurious, but shows restraint—a hallmark of its contemporary sensibility.”
“I’ve always trusted in the Internet’s ability to connect people,” says Meredith, who met her best friend and her husband that way. She Instagrams a lot of her day, which she then shares on Facebook. “I also tweet,” she continues. “I'm big on authenticity. I'm direct and to the point. It's just one of the ways I pull back the curtain on the world of design."
