Alexie Dorado Design Build
- JOB TITLE: Design Assistant
Alexie believes that as an Interior Designer, a canvas is the space given to you; your tools, a culmination of mother nature, your travels, culture, history, and fashion, and that your final masterpiece is the functional, safe, and timeless space you create for your clients.
As a one of the Design Assistants and Drafters on the Design Build team, Alexie creates CAD drawings, building relationships with vendors, works hand in hand with the Kitchen designers and updates clients on the progress of their projects.
Growing up, her mom taught her how to paint walls, and gave her tips and tricks on how to install certain house items and explained how they work. This early “education” instilled a desire in her to become a designer and enter into the Design industry. She graduated in 2010 with an Associates of Arts in Interior Design.
What Alexie loves most about the Interior Design industry is how multi-faceted it is. “Not only can we make space look good, but we enhance its functionality and effectiveness as well”. The most gratifying part for Alexie is being able to witness a project flourish from conceptual development to execution of design, to the final furnishing stages.
Outside of design, Alexie is very passionate about child development and the Montessori method of teaching. She homeschools 2-year-old and create Montessori-inspired lessons and activities for her. She also enjoys practicing drafting by hand, as she prefers the authenticity of hand – drawn renderings.
