Our Team

Meet our wonderful team!


Nicole is the founder and creative lead of McConnell Design. She developed an appreciation early on for antiques and home design by growing up antiquing with her mom and aunt. Nicole offers a fresh approach to decorating homes of today with her talent for seamlessly blending old and new. 


After coming up with the concept of McConnell Design, Nicole called on her partner, Alec, who helped bring her vision to life. Alec grew up between England and Germany in homes filled with antiques. Today, Alec helps McConnell Design with heavy lifting and logistics. He also lives in a home filled with antiques again, by Nicole. 


An integral part of our design team, Ivy is a talented designer and beloved team member. Our clients and team alike appreciate her bubbly personality and natural eye for design.
