“Never ever hide your enthusiasm,” says Megan Morton. It is a message that the interior stylist is getting out to an ever increasing audience. While Megan has always been a well-known name in the world of interiors - styling homes and spaces for the leading magazines as well creating books and running a prop shop - she is spreading her message through The School, a place of creative learning. “Beauty is for everyone,” she says. Now she’s planning to send The School on its first excursion to NYC. Megan has also been busy creating a range of beds with Incy Interiors.

The original interview (reproduced below) was published on 19 May 2009.

She’s one of the busiest stylists in Sydney, if not Australia. And she’s had her work featured in international publications, including Vanity Fair. Megan has worked extensively across Australian interior and lifestyle publications and has a client base that includes leading homewares brands and interior designers wanting their projects to make it into glossy magazines.
