Where are you from?
I grew up in Apple Valley and graduated from Rosemount High School.
What are your hobbies?
I like singing karaoke, playing video games, enjoying my husband and children (Patience and Faith), doing DIY home projects, and did I mention karaoke? 😉
When did your interest in design start?
When I was in seventh grade, we did an interior design unit in school. From then on, I was in love with design. I fell for kitchen and bath design when re-entering the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom to my first child.
How do you approach partnering with clients?
I like to let the client be in the driver’s seat at first by telling me what they want to see. Next, I step in to give my expertise and a realistic vision of what we can accomplish based on their budget, style, and timeline.
Favorite space to design for clients?
Favorite products in the showroom?
The door walls
Favorite room in your home?
The living room
What’s your favorite part about working at The Cabinet Store so far?
I love that The Cabinet Store is a small team of like-minded individuals. I like following a project through to completion and, most of all, getting to see before and after pictures. Previously, I often wasn’t able to see the final product of a design I helped create with a client. That’s rare at The Cabinet Store; they take pictures during every phase of each project. I love that!
What’s your personal design style?
I like all design styles! After all, it’s your home, and you should love it. As for my personal preference, I have an eclectic style that has notes of trends, Mediterranean style (I love color!), and mid-century modern. The image below is a good reflection of Alicia’s personal style.
Are they any current design trends you love?
I love all the blue tones that are trending right now, blue pairs well with so many different colors and finishes.
