"I always focus on a home as a sanctuary."
"My spaces tend to be eclectic, comfortable mixes of fresh new pieces with vintage modern finds, antiques, and tactile fabrics. I create spaces that are sophisticated and pulled together, yet feel layered and lived-in. I like to mix both styles and qualities."
"Lived-in and layered is more sophisticated and far more comfortable than 'perfect.'"
"While I love the look of layered, eclectic design, I think classic lines or silhouettes are the most important bones of a room. Whether I am helping clients with a kitchen remodel or new construction, I rarely deviate from the forms that have worked for centuries. Most importantly, I am always focused on a home as a sanctuary of comfort. I want my clients to feel that every time they walk through the door."
Interior designer Alexandra Rae has designed beautiful homes for clients throughout the country. Her rooms are a clever mix of clean, traditional lines, unusual objets d’art and vintage luxury furnishings. Rae is a visual artist who followed in the footsteps of her artist father and grandfather. After studying French and Art History at the University of California, Santa Barbara, she spent a decade in advertising. Postgraduate study at the San Francisco Art Institute and Atlanta Portfolio Center of Design led to a career as an art director. However, she eventually realized her greatest passion was art directing interiors and pursued further study in interior design. She opened her eponymous firm in 2006.
