FOUNDER, PRINCIPAL DESIGNER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Megan's love for all things interiors has been around for as long as she can remember and soon became a reality after she purchased her first home in Charleston, South Carolina and started the design process herself. She began sharing with the world her modern coastal spaces on social media and the world responded! It was this incredible response to Megan's designs that encouraged her to start helping friends, then friends of friends and eventually clients transform their spaces too. This exciting new "hobby" she devoted every hour to while not working her very full time job in healthcare sales quickly turned into a business. She quit her 12 year career in corporate America to chase a dream-a dream that was her true passion in life-helping others achieve beautiful spaces they love. Her passion for light and airy design, go getter attitude and attention to detail has quickly created a strong following, distinct brand and now online shop for Megan Molten and she can't wait to continue to watch her big dream grow! Megan and her husband Hugh reside in Mount Pleasant in their newly renovated home with their baby girls Marion and Mae. They enjoy the low country lifestyle, all the culture and cuisine Charleston has to offer as well as being on the water as much as they can. Megan feels very fortunate to be able to do what she loves in the city that she loves and serves as her greatest inspiration.
Hugh is Megan's right hand man personally and professionally-he handles all aspects of the business operations so Megan can focus her efforts on being the creative vision behind the brand. Hugh was born and raised in Columbia, SC before he moved to Charleston to attend CofC. After a quick two year stint in South Africa he found his way back to the Holy City working in the real estate industry. He soon started his own brokerage focusing on property management and met Megan that same year. Things moved along pretty quickly and after their second baby girl was born Hugh took the big leap to join the new family business full time as COO. Hugh is a man of many hobbies and enjoys photography, hunting, boating and traveling in his free time but being with his two girls is definitely his favorite thing in the world.
