Aleksandra Jakubowski

Owner & Lead Designer

With over 10 years of experience in the window treatment industry, Aleksandra is very passionate about interior design and home aesthetics. She obtained a degree in Psychology, and although she did not take that traditional route post-graduation, she strongly believes in environmental psychology, and how interior design elements can evoke positive feelings by encouraging creativity, peace, and overall happiness in an individual. In her teenage years, Aleksandra moved with her family to the United States from Poland. As she lived on two continents throughout her lifetime, her elevated style has been inspired by a charming mix of contemporary European design, as well as Mid-Century Modern American. Nevertheless, adaptability being her strong suit, she can adjust her vision to accommodate any desires or personal styles of her clients to achieve a bespoke and refined look. Aleksandra’s integrity, impeccable attention to detail, and excellent communication skills helped her develop lasting customer relations with many private clients, interior designers, and architects in the Philadelphia area. Further, she is a mother of two adorable and lively little boys, Roger and Oliver, who taught her first-hand, to always expect the unexpected. In her free time, Aleksandra likes to travel with her kids and husband, Tom; discovering new cultures, trying different dishes, and dancing to any music that’s playing. In the summer you can find her on the beach with a good book or covered in sand, building castles with her kids. Whereas, in the winter, she’s on the slopes, skiing from morning till dawn.
