Devin Mearig began reimagining living spaces as a child. She graduated from Philadelphia University (now Jefferson), a college ranked Top 10 in the nation for their Interior Design program and has since made her passion, a career. Her ability to create naturally inspired, functional living spaces is nothing short of amazing.
Tell us something that your clients would be surprised to know.
I am very focused on eco-friendly, sustainable designs. I grew up in rural Lancaster County and spent a lot of time outdoors. I have a strong connection to nature so protecting it has always been important to me. It’s top of mind in everything I do.
Which design trends do you envision standing the test of time?
We all know that 410 Painted Linen (Shaker) cabinets are king but as far as trends go, I see a lot of people incorporating natural wood, with white cabinets, to add warmth. Going with a light, bright palette gives the design flexibility and longevity. You can always add pops of color for contrast, something special that can be changed later.
For what reason do your clients select Waypoint cabinets?
Waypoint offers a great price point, well-crafted cabinets that are built in the USA—that’s really important to our clients.
Do you have any tips for optimizing small spaces?
Because we’re in Philadelphia, we design quite a few brownstones with limited space. That really impacts the way we design the space. Flexible storage becomes very important. I love using rollout trays and tiered drawer storage. Small spaces need to be simple and serve multiple functions. To ensure an airy feeling, small spaces definitely need to be light and bright.
Naturally, Devin’s gift for thoughtful design will continue to brighten homes all over Philadelphia for many years to come.
