Megan Moran

Designer

Megan joined us from the Bay Area where she has spent over 15 exciting years in the field of design beautifying residential interiors. She graduated from San Francisco State University majoring in Photography and Printmaking which developed and honed her eye for design, color and fine details. Inspired by a devout love of music, art and film, she creates colorful spaces that resonate cozy, cool and modern with classic, vintage elements.

When not at the showroom, Megan and her husband and two dogs enjoy exploring the gorgeous parks and coffee shops around Portland.

Haley Park

Junior Designer

An Oregon native, Haley recently earned her Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design from Oregon State University.

Exposed to design and construction through her father, she has been exercising her creative instincts from an early age confessing her bedroom, which happens to be in a house situated on a lavender farm, was in a constant cycle of rearrangement and decor. Both nature and nurture played a role in the development of her senses.

Her hobbies mirror other members of the Nifelle team and include hiking, outdoor and water sports, and attending concerts (usually country) and OSU football games with friends.

We are thrilled to have Haley's infectious smile and can-do-anything attitude at Nifelle Design!

Leo

Unpaid Intern

Meet Leo, he’s pretty green for an intern, but he’s a real quick learner! He’s practically perfect in every way - except when he thinks we need a nip in the “pants”. He’s got pretty impressive paws to fill, but we know Kipper would approve. Leo provides us with lots of love and licks, and endless Instagram material.
