Megan Winters is chic. Megan Winters is explosive. Megan Winters is a brilliant orchestrator, an amazing talent and the most vivacious and dynamic designer in the Midwest today.


All of this talent and personality, mixed with a razor-sharp business sensibility and you have one incredible stick-of-dynamite package. At the age of 28, after earning an MBA from the prestigious University of Chicago, Winters started a high-end printing firm that quickly grew into a global packaging powerhouse. While business savvy was critical to her success, her innate sense of creativity, combined with her obsession for client satisfaction, enabled her business to outshine the competition. Her experience as a visionary entrepreneur exposed her to some of the world’s leading luxury retailers which truly sparked the design fires that lead to her current state of affairs—creating dramatic and beautiful spaces saturated by striking architecture, luxe materials, and her quintessential good taste.


Winters had always recognized how good design and an inspirational environment could enhance the quality of work, home, and life! She wisely renovated her business warehouse spaces into spectacular, on-brand yet functional offices that consistently received rave reviews; all too often overshadowing her own packaging business. Soon family, friends, and then business associates began seeking out her talents to recreate their own spaces, and necessity being the mother of invention, in 2009 Megan Winters Design was born. Finding design to be her true passion, Winters left the corporate world behind and dove full tilt into design! She has created perennially chic and striking spaces for countless Chicago and North Shore socialites, dignitaries and notables…and continues today on the national stage to bring her unbridled finesse to each new luxury residential project.


Bringing her Haute Couture for Your Home signature to every project, Megan has become renowned and beloved for her fearless use of color, sophisticated interiors and furnishings; all with a dash of chic-whimsy and humor. Playful touches of gilt, vintage finds mixed with modern-glam, custom upholstery, and fresh flashes of sparkle all culminate to reflect her easy elegance attitude towards design. Fall 2011 saw the opening of a delightfully unique and refined design showroom and retail space in historic Lake Forest Illinois; Megan Winters Atelier and Maison. Megan and her good works have been featured in ELLE DÉCOR, Traditional Home, Luxe, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Home and Gardens, Modern Luxury North Shore and on the cover of Romantic Homes. Most recently her work has been showcased in New York at the very prestigious Design On a Dime event in collaboration with ultraglam ELLE DÉCOR magazine.  Megan’s space was selected by editor in chief Michael Boodro to be the backdrop for his interview on Editor at Large out of over 50 vendors and participants!  In 2013 Megan participated in the high-profile Greensboro North Carolina showhouse during High Point market and launched her private collection of fine art.  Soon after she debuted a glamorous collection of gilded home accessories and décor including mirrors, sconces, lighting and topiaries, which were recently featured in Veranda magazine June 2014.
