Daisy’s career in Interior Design started two years ago when she began at Lori Wiles Design. “I love helping create happy spaces, and I have a special fondness for textiles.” In addition to design work at LWD, she also enjoys marketing via the company’s website and social media pages and photographing finished projects. In fact, she loves taking all sorts of photographs—from interior photos for LWD and other companies to baby, family, and wedding pictures. “When I’m not designing or taking pictures, I spend my time playing the piano and mothering my delightful 4-year-old son. I enjoy running half-marathons, and taking time to relax with an exciting book every night.”

Interior Design has been my inspiration for years. With my ongoing fascination with interiors and architecture, I knew my fate was sealed.  Megan began her career with a local Interior Design firm specializing in textiles and custom cabinetry design and she’s been in the business ever since.  She thrives in creating spaces for clients that not only exceed their expectations, but enhance their lives by providing them with functional, yet innovative design solutions. In my free time, I keep busy with my young, growing family.
