Business owner and interior designer Monica Hart specializes in residential design and has 20+ years of experience and knowledge. She can design for young families, families with teens and those who are empty nesting. Monica grew up in Karlstad, MN, and graduated from NDSU with a degree in interior design and is NCIDQ-certified.
After working for a hospitality firm, a builder and then a home design center, Monica decided to start her own business, founding Monica Hart Interior Design in 2008 while pregnant with her third son. “As much as I love being an interior designer, I love being a mom more,” said Monica. “Owning my own business gives me the flexibility I need to be at my kid’s activities and get to do what I love.” She and her husband also recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
Monica helps with floor plans, ideas during framing, maximizing storage, helping with electrical walk-throughs, catching details as well as assisting with material selections that will function well for the client.
“Quality and timeless design that reflects the client and their wants will always be in style”
Inspiration, Colors & Trends
When it comes to design trends, Monica isn’t worried about following them. Rather, she is inspired by her clients themselves. Once she gets an idea of what they like and what they dream of, the ideas flow and she can see in her head what the finished space may look like. “Quality and timeless design that reflects the client and their wants will always be in style,” said Monica.
Monica’s main goal in her work is to have helped as many clients as possible with all budgets and each space being unique and special for them. “The best compliment I have gotten is that my projects look so different from each other,” said Monica. “That is important to me as a designer—that each of my projects reflects the client and their uniqueness, not of me.”
