Here is the latest instalment from the design*sponge guest blog I did last year. The original post is here.

Burst of inspiration: Megan Morton - stylist



Yes, she’s one of the busiest stylists in Sydney if not Australia. Yes, she’s had her work feature in international publications. Megan’s also the life of the party whenever she walks into a room as I found out when she styled my apartment for a Real Living feature. Ah, if only she could come back and sort out my front room!

How and why did you start working as an interior stylist? Nine years ago.

What lessons have you learnt along the way? Money and style have nothing in common.

What’s your favourite decorating style? Charming.



What’s the most common mistake people make when decorating their home? Sticking to the rule book.

Where do you look to for inspiration? Music and books. I read everything and anything.

Who inspires you? Tadao Ando, Millie De Castonet, Iain Halliday, my florist.

Which features or projects that you’ve worked on are you most proud of? A Vanity Fair cover, a skyhome in the city and a wine bar we designed for fashion week and Dita Von Teese and a Christmas lunch for the homeless.


How has your own personal interior style developed? It’s pretty much been the same my whole life.

How would you describe your home? A ramshackle mess (with outrageous potential!) where my most favourite people and things happily co-exist.
What are you passionate about? Living with only what you need.

I was lucky enough to meet Megan probably 15 or so years ago now, when I spent my uni holidays interning in the ACP Publicity department.

Back then she had a keen interest in interior design and was probably the most stylish person I'd met in my life...all that and a lovely person, too.

I enjoy seeing her name pop up as stylist here and there - it makes me happy that she's living her dream...

Money and style are not related - love it.
