Hanging with Megan Guip: Part 3
The Inside Source visited designer Megan Guip’s home, where she creates Wilhelm, her accessories line made of feathers and flowers. Our past posts showed a wall map and wooden serving trays. One of the striking pieces we discovered in the Bowery loft in New York is nestled by the natural light of the window. We asked Megan it’s origin.
"I found this piece walking on the beach in Fire Island. I ran back to the house to get my boyfriend. We procured a large wagon from one of the neighbors. There were two kids hanging out on the beach so we threw them some money to help lift the piece to the wagon and we walked it back to the house" she says. When transporting the wood from beach to vehicle, Megan adds: "A small parade of people formed behind the piece as we walked it through the neighborhood. Everyone was asking what we were going to do with it."
To all those curious beach go-er’s, here is the answer. The result is a splendid mix of color and texture, especially positioned next to green foliage. Inspired by this idea, we searched eBay for driftwood and found some impressive pieces to adorn your home.
