Working with Michele reminded of every reason why homeowners should work with a pro. Michele’s design for DXV was, from the start, a brilliant  combination of complex architecture and sophisticated materials that, together, created a balanced and serene yet edgy interior. In other words, she wowed us from day one and then managed to raise her own bar by submitting impeccable working drawings, material lists and really every minute detail to ensure that our production team could correctly interpret her vision. I guess you could say Michele made it easy for the rest of us to look good.

Michele Alfano’s thought-provoking design for the DXV 2017 Design Panel awakened our senses as she married modern function and comfort to create the perfect Hygge space. Her attention to detail and impeccable work ethic makes Michele a pleasure to work with. From her initial sketches to the final results of her Copenhagen-inspired design, she has consistently impressed DXV by bringing her design concept to life, truly evoking the feeling of “Hygge.” We are honored to have Michele as part of our DXV Design Panel family.

We hired Michele from Michele Alfano Design to help us create an open floor plan design for our outdated colonial. From the moment we met Michele we knew we had found the right person for our project. She listened and asked all the right questions to help guide us during the design process and come back with drawings that conceptualized everything we had imaged. She was available throughout the entire process, checking in with the contractors to ensure that the project was on pace and any issues were address immediately to save us both time and money. She was the consummate professional. 
We never thought that we were the kind of people who would hire a designer. Up to this project were were a DIY family, but honestly it was the best decision we ever made. Michele helped guide us through the selection of materials, colors, fabrics, everything. When you start a major remodel you cannot even imagine all the decisions that need to be made and Michele was there with honest feedback for us at every turn. I cannot recommend her enough. Her business motto is tailored, emotional, intelligence and she is proves it with every project. She is an amazing designer who helped redesign our house into our home.

We hired Michele to design a built in bed in our daughter’s room. With her creative and innovative thinking, Michele was able to construct a bed that was not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional with lots of storage space. She was involved in every step of the process, including visiting our home, speaking with the millworker, and helping with choosing fabrics and paint colors to make it all come together. She was very professional and completed the project in a timely fashion. We truly enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her for future projects.

I have collaborated with Michele Alfano on many high end residential projects for the last 10 years. Her level of skill in regard to architecture, furniture, design, space planning, lighting and overall knowledge of the ever changing market is very impressive. She is very detail oriented and is always on the cutting edge of design.  Her knowledge of various styles being English, French, Minimalist Modern is amazing. Her greatest attribute is her ability to stay grounded and always humble, friendly, honest and caring about her work and career.This is truly a woman who will go far up the ladder in the design industry.

Michele Alfano designed the renovation of my 125 year old brownstone in Hoboken. She modernized the space, while giving nod to the historic touches of the home we wanted to maintain. Her ideas were unique and executed beautifully. The kitchens and bathrooms especially were a main focus. She was easy to work with, incorporating her ideas with my needs. My home is gorgeous and it’s because of her.

Michele Alfano is a design professional who clearly excels at design conceptualization, execution, documentation and management,  but equally important: establishing strong  positive client and staff relationships.  She has the innate ability to exceed design expectations, meet budget requirements, handle inevitable unforeseen circumstances and make clients come back for more!
Michele and I worked together on many projects at Walkergroup/CNI. She is a skilled designer and a wonderful individual.

When my husband and I decided to redo our master bathroom we did not know where to start. The entire process seemed very overwhelming. We called Michele at Michele Alfano Design and sat down with her to discuss the feel we wanted to experience in our new space. Michele nailed it with her design which incorporated contemporary lines with a rustic flair. This was exactly what we wanted. She is very knowledgeable, extremely talented and thinks outside the box. Michele has an impeccable attention to detail which was reflected throughout the project. Once construction began, Michele was extremely hands on making sure the project was progressing as planned. Any problems that arose during construction that affected the design were handled with efficiency and Michele was always quick to come up with an alternate solution.
Having Michele design this space for us was the best thing we could have done. She designed an absolutely gorgeous space which we will love for years to come.
