Alexandra was raised in northern New Jersey, in a home where wall colors were constantly changing and furniture was always being rearranged. She found the fluidity of change invigorating, and it's what inspired her continuing pursuit of design as she grew.
Alex began her design education at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC while she was still attending high school. In college she studied Interior Design at the renowned Pratt Institute, before graduating from Penn State University's College of Arts and Architecture in 2010.
During college Alexandra worked as an Interior Design Assistant in a privately owned design firm, and continued working in the design field until breaking out to form M&P Design Group in 2014. Since then her award-winning work has been featured in top publications and television, appearing in Westchester Magazine and HGTV's Property Brothers.
Alexandra believes optimal design necessitates an understanding of the way people live and work in their spaces, which is why she takes time to learn her clients' functional and aesthetic needs. With experience in architectural planning and renovations, combined with a sharp eye for color, texture, and finishes, Alexandra designs contemporary spaces filled with personalized detail.
Alexandra's mission at M&P Design Group is to change the way you think about interior design. We are dedicated to providing quality service to our clients through these design philosophies:
FLUID INTERIOR DESIGN™
Over the last handful of years, interior design has reinvented itself! In keeping up with this notion that design- like fashion- navigates trends at a much faster rate than before, Alexandra has developed a design concept called 'Fluid Interior Design™'. Recognizing classic pieces versus trends helps her to design contemporary homes and commercial spaces that can be reimagined down-the-road without having to undergo a full redesign. Alexandra works very closely with her clients and their project's needs to determine what within their space should be 'foundation pieces' (the pieces that will remain), versus their 'trendy / fluid' pieces (items that can be updated as a trend evolves). This concept has allowed M&P clients to feel much freer within their design decisions knowing nothing has to ever be set in stone. As life grows, changes, and continues to move around us - our spaces should adapt as well!
We all have a subconscious awareness of the world around us, especially when it comes to the spaces we inhabit. Spatial planning, scale, color, pattern, and other stylistic elements are all components, that when combined, effect the way we live or work within a space. Utilizing applied psychology allows Alexandra to offer better designs, suited specifically for her clients' functional and aesthetic needs, thus leading to move productive and enjoyable lifestyles.
