Hello, My Name Is


I'm so glad you've landed on our page!  I am Alexis, and  I am co-owner & part of the design duo at Simplicity!


I've had a passion for all things design & decorating for as long as I can remember.  At age 4, you could find me styling my own Barbie Dream House & by age 8 I was creating my own window treatments in my doll house!  My life has weaved me through various states and jobs, but somehow I have always come back to my love of design.  Whether it is finding a paint color, re-purposing a garage sale find or doing DIY home improvements with my husband, I find a way to always see the beauty in the objects that surround us!

A mix of talent, passion and fate is what started Danielle and I on this wild and amazing journey of creating Simplicity Home Staging & Design.


Design is my second passion in life.  The best part of my life is being the mother to my adorable son!  He is my driving force to enjoy life and follow my dreams!


Thanks for dropping by! I look forward to working with you!

Hi There!

Unshakable Optimist

Dedicated to staging your home in the most efficient and profitable manner…SIMPLY!

Prior to Simplicity, I graduated with a degree in Marketing and Management from The Charles F. Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University (Go Stags!).  Since graduating, I have put my marketing major to good use, working in the marketing and sales department at Boston Magazine and Boston Home, as well as working as a pharmaceutical sales representative for many years. 


After taking some time off in the corporate world (to stay at home with my 3 boys), I decided that my love for real estate and design, needed to be incorporated with my love for marketing.  This led me to industry leader, Kristie Barnett (also known as “the Decorologist”), and one of the most comprehensive home staging courses in the country, where I became a certified stager. 


Simplicity Home Staging and Design,LLC was formed as a way to use all my skills and passions to help my clients reach their goals of selling their homes as fast as possible, for the most amount of money.  I pride myself on using my knowledge, passion, and expertise and making this process for my clients efficient, stress free and “simple.”
