Hi! I’m Meg McGrath Vaccaro. I am an interdisciplinary creative who loves interior design. Alongside my incredible husband, Bryan, we are fixing up a short sale Dutch Bungalow in Essex County, NJ, to make a wonderful family home for our daughter, Aibhlinn, and rescue mutt, Mira.
I earned my BFA in Digital Fine Art from The College of New Jersey and studied for an MFA at Savannah College of Art and Design. My professional career to-date has been largely focused on technology where I spent some years as a 3d artist, UI/UX designer and the past 6 years as a Product Manager.
While designing and building technology products is a good deal different than designing interiors, the fundamentals of good design remain constant. My vast technological experience offers me a wide array of skills to use in spatial visualization and planning. Years leading product development has made me an excellent project manager. Combined with three + decades of interiors obsession, one childhood growing up in 100+ yr old homes with OG DIY’er parents, and now a fixer-upper of my own, I would lov to help you tackle your design projects in your own home.
I pride myself on being able to come up with right the design for a space and then figure out how to execute it given (almost) any budget. It sometimes takes patience, a willingness to wait for the right piece to come up for sale second hand, or some DIY elbow grease, but good design is almost always achievable!
This is important because I believe everyone deserves a space to call home that supports the needs of their family, makes them feel comfortable to spend time there and proud to invite others into their homes. This shouldn’t be an option only for those with lots of money or time and personal interest in interior design.
I am happy to share my passion with those looking for affordable help in making their house a home.
