Interior designer Meghan Eisenberg modernised her late grandparents’ beloved home into a cosy nest for her family of four
Growing up in Los Angeles, Meghan Eisenberg was a regular at her grandparents’ home. “We’d gather there for birthdays and holidays and family occasions, where we’d spend evenings dancing on the raised shag platform in the living room,” recalls the interior designer, who also has “distinct memories of delivering devilish tightrope performances on the platform’s wooden beams.”
Today, Eisenberg runs a flourishing namesake interior design firm based in LA. But for the decorator—who is now married and with two kids of her own—the home was special in more ways than one. After all, it had been lovingly designed by her grandfather (midcentury architect Donald G. Park) in 1950 while he was still a student at the USC School of Architecture. “He built it with the help of my great-grandfather, who was a carpenter, with the hope of accommodating his young family: my grandmother, Mary Ann, and their two kids—my mum and uncle.” The home invites you in with its rich earthy tones which have been carried through in the family living room with a bespoke Turkish sofa that is big enough for the whole family to enjoy.
