Alexandra Aquadro is the founder of AGA Design, an interior design firm specializing in residential projects. Alexandra discovered her passion for design at an early age, while growing up in an antique home filled with wide plank floor boards and beehive ovens. “I would frequently find paint and fabric samples as my parents worked room by room to renovate our historic home. The biggest thrill was when I selected my bedroom wallpaper in the fourth grade, the cheerful yellow and floral pattern still lines the walls today.”
The brand took shape with the start of the AGA Design Blog, an online publication devoted to all things that inspire including interior design, art, and fashion. “This was my first opportunity to creatively share my passion for design with others” explains Alexandra. With experience in textile sales and working for both architecture and interior design firms, Alexandra made the leap to start her own firm in 2014.
AGA Design works closely with clients to create comfortable, timeless, and sophisticated interiors to be enjoyed for years to come. Project scopes range from full renovations to walk-though consultations for a more DIY approach. “I want my clients to walk through their door and feel at peace surrounded by inviting color palettes, comfortable furnishings, and personal accents. The house should feel like their home.”
Alex helped me quickly and painlessly make my new house in to a comfortable home for me and my two daughters. As a single dad with a full schedule, I needed help making decisions quickly and coordinating many of the logistics. Alex was extremely reliable and responsive to my specific needs— thoughtfully including my daughters in the process. I would highly recommend Alex for any job, big or small.
Alex has helped our family with the interior design of our home in Lexington since we bought our house in 2012. From helping us furnish completely empty open spaces, to assisting us from beginning to end with a major kitchen renovation, Alex has led us to create classic, timeless spaces in our home that are as beautiful as they are comfortable for our family of five. I am always so impressed with Alex’s selections - whether it is fabrics, paint colors, light fixtures, or counter top materials, one is more beautiful than the next. I have a hard time making decisions and Alex has the nicest way of guiding you to find the perfect fit for your style and needs. We couldn’t be happier with AGA Design and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Alex!
Working with Alex turned out to be one of the best decisions I made! I was reluctant to engage with an interior designer at first worrying I would have to choose styles I didn’t like, but Alex assessed my style, asked questions, then understood what I was looking to accomplish.
She then set out, found beautiful items and gave me choices! It was such a pleasurable experience and both my daughter’s bedroom and bathroom look stunning.
From this experience, I want to re-do the entire house! Some areas will only need re-arranging of furniture and finding accessories to complete the room. Other rooms will certainly require more work but all this will take place with Alex by my side. I am falling in love with my house again!
I can’t recommend Alex enough. She’s thoughtful, easy to work with and really takes the time to understand what each client is looking for. She offers up her opinion while never forcing a design idea on you and really wants to make sure that the looks she is creating are an extension of your home - rather than just a showpiece to be decorated.
She always had multiple options to show and was very responsive to questions and our opinions at each stage of the process. My husband and I truly love what Alex was able to do and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Alex again on our next project.
