Peek Inside the Home of Cailini Coastal’s Meg Young

Founder and recent Westport transplant Meg Young launched Cailini Coastal to address what she saw as a gap in the luxury coastal home décor and furnishings market, dominated by a handful of national brands. Blending the styles from the seaside communities she knew—both in California and on the East Coast—she carved out a niche with offerings that reflect her fresh perspective on all things nautical, bringing the beauty of local beaches to customers worldwide through her e-commerce site. She hoped to capture the feeling of taking a leisurely stroll through a charming shoreline boutique, where each piece has a story to tell.

As the wallcoverings category continued to grow, Young responded by expanding her assortment with her own line. The seven-piece collection was inspired by quintessential coastal elements, from classic stripes and sailboats to seashells and blooming hydrangeas. Most are printed on grasscloth and paperweave, textures that she’d loved but had trouble finding without a trade account.

And the company’s mission extends beyond offering stylish home décor. The brand is deeply committed to philanthropy, partnering with Family Promise, a national nonprofit aiding low-income families and those experiencing homelessness. Its dedication led to substantial donations, exceeding $70,000 since its 2020 launch.

After working with Lynn Morgan Design on her own home, Young is enlisting the designer to get her brick-and-mortar store up and running. Stay tuned for updates on the shop, as well as product launches currently in the works.
