About Us

Meg Springgay,  the founder and designer behind The Hive Interior Design Studio, cut her teeth in the fashion industry working for over 15 years as a fashion show producer for Burberry, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. Originally from New York City, Meg moved to Europe 12 years ago and has lived in both the UK and Paris where she produced shows for the top fashion houses.

Using her eye for fashion, design and detail along with her project management skills she decided to turn her focus to interior design. She now works from her design studio in West Berkshire, embracing her new 'English countryside' lifestyle with her husband and 6-year-old son.

Meg's approach to interior design is unique: 'My goal is to create environments that evoke a feeling every time a client enters the room. The way to achieve this is by focusing on what I like to call, your 'design emotions'. I have taken learnings from the fashion world in this respect. The way someone’s home is decorated or ‘dressed up’ can easily dictate the mood of the house and for the people that live within it... and it’s my job to help define this for you.'

How would you describe your style?

"A mix of American 'transitional design': which is a lovely blend of soft modern touches with more vintage or traditional pieces to anchor the home. The result is a hybrid of both American and English aesthetics to evoke a classic, cosy, and timeless feel."

"We worked on a lovely Georgian Manor home in Hampshire, where we wanted to help the client modernise their home by redesigning the lower and upper levels with a full kitchen extension out of the back of their property, along with garden and landscape design to complete the newly updated look. We took the location and bones of the property into consideration and selected furniture + styling decor which was in keeping with the home's heritage and natural surroundings. The outcome was truly stunning!"
