Who we are...

Newton’s first law of motion is that "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion.” What a lot of people tend to forget is the rest of that phrase… which is that “the object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction UNLESS acted upon by an unbalanced force." My whole life I was going at the same speed, in the same direction… hiding under the same false veil of perfectionism and not dealing with the issues I needed to deal with. The unbalanced force that knocked my speed out of whack and entirely rerouted my trajectory came in the most inconvenient way… but looking back today, it was the perfect time.

Galey Alix Design isn’t actually about decor, it’s not trying to be a brand, and it’s not a lifestyle. In its simplest form, it’s the result of an object in motion being acted upon by an unbalanced force. And that unbalanced force… was me.

Galey Alix Design is a full-service and full-heart design company** that transforms homes + hearts. The vast majority of projects are completed over a long (and sleepless) 3-day weekend.

The most exciting part, however, is that 100% of Galey's projects are a complete surprise to her clients. Homeowners reach out to her on social media at @galeyalix, and if she is lucky enough to see their message, she meets them at their home, they discuss the budget and that's it. She often doesn't even tell clients which rooms she's doing.

Her business is unique in that it's built solely on blind trust, which allows for a client experience unlike any other. Because the homeowner doesn't make any decisions, all of the stress is taken off them. Additionally, homeowners don't have to live through months of construction because everything is completed in a single weekend. All homeowners have to do is take a 3-day vacation and then return to their new dream home. 

Do Galey Alix Design clients always like the surprises they come home to on "Reveal Day?" You can watch their reveals on our projects page and decide for yourself.
