Interior Design Portfolio

It was a great pleasure working with Alexis. She is a dream interior designer because she listens to her clients and really works hard to bring their vision to life. She also has a great eye for color and fabric which makes pulling furniture and paint together an easy process. She is a gem. -P.D., South Orange, NJ

After Alexis was so helpful, and successful, with the staging of our first house to sell we asked her to help us turn our new house into a home. We had a limited budget and Alexis helped us come up with a plan that allowed us to create an atmosphere that fits our family and our lifestyle. I would recommend her for any of your decorating needs. -M.H., Maplewood, NJ

Alexis has the ideal business to help people like me who don’t have time or always the right eye for home design improvements.  I am so pleased with the results – she was able to work with my ideas and my budget, which can be eclectic and fluctuate.  She combined my ideas with her own to bring the whole room together in such a nice way and she understands the different considerations – children, pets, durability, style – that come in to play when making purchases required to last more than a few years.   We had a great partnership throughout – Alexis continues to suggest additional ideas for introducing ‘pops of color’ or interesting pieces to get those final touches. I highly recommend her and can’t wait for our next project! -S.M., South Orange, NJ

Alexis is an extremely talented, creative and cost effective designer. She has an amazing ability to look at a room, assess what changes need to be made based on how she observes the room is used, and then come up with recommendations that are simple, elegant and exactly what’s wanted and needed. She transformed my living room, which was in perfectly good working order, into a warm, cozy, finished-looking room. She did this by asking me a lot of questions about how/when we use the room, looking at what items were already there, and adding details to enhance the look/feel. The other thing that makes Alexis so easy to work with, and so effective, is that she really listens. She has no personal agenda on how a space should look; instead, she is totally committed to creating a space that will work for those who live in it and match their own taste. When you combine this quality with her excellent design and aesthetic sense, you get the ideal design professional. As I have already done with a number of my close friends, I highly recommend Alexis for any design project, big or small. -L.W., South Orange, NJ

I would highly recommend Alexis Gubbay for any home design or organizational project. Alexis decorated my home office and outdoor back patios. She was extremely organized and thorough and took the time to understand my personal style and needs. It led to a great collaboration that resulted in a wonderful outcome.  She presented me with suggestions and choices and guided me in choosing what would be both beautiful and functional. The outcome exceeded my expectations. She is a wonderful person to work with and possesses panache without the pretence!  Don’t hesitate to hire her! -J.C., Millburn, NJ

On a shoe string budget, Alexis stepped into my dull, lifeless bedroom and with a generous ear and a creative heart, transformed it to a wonderfully inviting and special space.I must admit, I was hesitant at first because I had never had someone come in my home to do this sort of thing. But she made me feel comfortable and her patience helped me relax. I am so happy I took the step to invite ARG Home Designs to make my bedroom a part of my home and not just another room. -J.B., Maplewood, NJ 

Alexis turned my bachelor pad into an incredibly classy and beautiful condo. Her sense of style and her eye for elegance transformed my apartment into something truly spectacular. -M.K., West Orange, NJ

Staging Portfolio

Thank you for the amazing job you did staging Marlene’s home in Maplewood. Your staging made such a difference that we ended up getting about $20,000 higher than the other comparable homes, and only after 1 weekend on the market. Laurie was also very pleased with the houses you staged for her. My team is always happy to recommend you! -Sue Adler, #1 Keller Williams Team in NJ 2005-Present

The creativity and work that Alexis did was a key factor to having three offers on our house within a week of being on the market.  Alexis was able to work within our budget and help make our house appeal to prospective buyers while still maintaining it as our home to live in.  She is amazingly talented and a joy to work with. -F.B., Livingston, NJ

With numerous similar condos in my complex on the market at the same time, I needed something to set my place apart. Alexis came in and transformed my place. While other places were still looking for a buyer after months, my place was under contract in just a few weeks. She made my selling experience easy and quick. - M.K., West Orange, NJ

When we wanted to sell our first home to make room for our growing family Alexis made a world of difference in the entire process.  Not only did she help with the task of making the house look its best but when we were done the house sold for just about 20% more than the realtor had originally priced the house before Alexis worked her magic.  On top of that it sold just 10 days after we put it on the market.  Alexis worked within our budget and lifestyle, we had to put some money into the project but with the difference in the sale price we made 4 times the investment back.  I don’t think it would have been possible without Alexis’ help; I wouldn’t sell another home without her. -M.H., Maplewood, NJ
