Tell us about yourself!

Hi! I’m Megan. I live in Atlanta with my husband. We own a Creative Studio and Marketing agency by day and I share my life on Instagram as I find the time :) I love all things food, style and home!

You recently designed a bedroom using our Crown Bed in the Georgia shape. Walk us through the design process of the room!

Both fortunately and unfortunately, our journey began with a significant water leak. However, this unexpected event provided us with an opportunity to renovate our bedroom. My vision for the space was to create a tranquil and serene environment. To achieve this, I decided to start with a neutral blue grasscloth wallpaper that features a subtle pattern. From there, I carefully curated the rest of the room's elements.

Lately, I've developed a fondness for vibrant colors, so I wanted our bed to serve as a bold statement piece, injecting a burst of energy into the room. With this in mind, I opted for a bed design that would truly captivate the eye. The addition of a lavender welt on the bed adds a touch of unique character, enhancing its overall appeal.

We are huge fans of Match South! Tell us how the idea came about, and do you have a match book photograph that is most sentimental to you?

Thank you, it has been such a fun ride! I had the idea a few years back when we were going through my husband's grandparents home after they had passed away. They had some of the most iconic Atlanta establishments and some old vintage Sea Island. We wanted a way to preserve some of these sacred memories… Fast forward to 2020 we had a little more time with the world being shut down and that’s where Match South was born.

We partnered with ATL Family Meal, a local organization helping hospitality workers with supplementing their income to enhance their quality of life by donating 50% of our profits. 

Since then Match South has grown into something we could never have imagined. We are expanding our product collection and have some exciting collaborations coming up soon!
