Show Notes

Today on Creating Your Happy Place, we are chatting with special guest Maegan Blau! Maegan Blau is an interior designer based in sunny Arizona.  In 2009 she incurred a C6-C8 spinal cord injury and has been a wheelchair user ever since. She is diagnosed with an incomplete C8 spinal cord injury which has obviously changed the way she lives in the blink of an eye. As a person with a disability, it seemed the majority of options to make homes accessible were straight-up ugly and very hospital-like. It got her thinking…we can do better than this! Listen to this episode to hear all about her incredible journey.

Her interior design career started with a personal journey to renovate and adapt her first home to fit accessibility needs while having a high level of style. Combining her perspective of disability with her life-long passion for interior design fueled Maegan to find creative ways to make spaces beautifully accessible.  In 2018 she started Blue Copper Design to elevate the world of adaptive design.
