WHO: About Celebrity Interior Designer Megan Weaver
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Megan Weaver inherited her eye for design from her mother who turned their modest houses into beautiful homes on a strict budget. Megan attended Loyola Marymount University, and upon graduation went to work for Steven Spielberg at Amblin Entertainment. While she enjoyed the process of feature film development and production, Weaver was often seen moving furniture around and decorating the assistants’ offices to keep up with the Michael S. Smith-designed spaces for the President and VP.

As a Ford model, Weaver traveled the world on various photo assignments. Along the way, she picked up art and antiques that captured the inspiration and regional design elements she found in the scenic and unusual places she visited. After modeling, she established Megan Weaver Design and has since designed homes from the ground up in Hancock Park, Malibu, Bel Air and the San Fernando Valley. Weaver’s rooms have an intuitive, inviting feeling to them. Her design style is clean, light and airy – contemporary chic combined with elements of traditional coziness. Her designs, meant primarily for families, ensure that rooms are easy to live in with kids and dogs without sacrificing style.

“It's been exciting to see our furniture as part of these major home overhauls on “Hideous Houses,” said Jim Navarra, vice president and third-generation family member at family-owned and operated Jerome’s. “Megan is well-respected interior designer and a lot of fun to work with. We couldn’t be more excited to host her at Jerome’s for this meet and greet.”
