DONNA MONDI

PRESIDENT

One of Chicago’s top interior designers,  Donna specializes in full-scale renovations, new construction, and overall interior design.  Since opening her firm in 2001, her style has become known for her ability to blend classicism with modernity.  She has earned a spot as one of the “Top 20 Interior Designers in Chicago” and “Top 200 Influencers in the Design Industry”.  Creating the full client experience by combining lifestyle preferences with the latest innovations in the industry has earned DMID the reputation of the “go to” firm for new luxury buildings in Chicago.

CHARLI BUCHBERGER

DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS

Charli was skillfully lured away from her consulting career, tempted by the fabulous world of Interior Design. Combining her resume, which includes Deloitte, Marsh and Arthur Andersen, with her personal passion for design has made her the perfect choice to manage our ever-growing business. Don't let her tough German façade fool you; while she may be all business, it always comes with a smile.

MAGGIE HELLERMAN

DIRECTOR OF FINANCE

Maggie traded in a high profile career in the financial industry for the fast-paced but visually stimulating industry of interior design. She casually throws around words like “budget” and “cost basis” while the rest of us make the world a prettier place. She hasn’t met a spreadsheet she didn't love and always makes colorful pie charts for the rest of us.

JULIE MCMAHON

PROJECT MANAGER

Julie joined the DMID team after years of experience working with a high-end custom home builder. She handles our purchasing, tracking, scheduling, and coordinating all to make our installation day magic happen. With her super sweet personality and tea party dresses, she can make just about anything happen!

ALEX DABROWSKI

DESIGNER

With over four years at DMID, Alex has worked on design projects ranging from estate homes in the suburbs to urban skyscrapers and everything in between. To top it all off, she's our outdoor design specialist and finishes off all our spaces with the icing-on-the-cake accessories! She's blue-eyed, bilingual and bewitchingly talented.

SARA HAMPTON

DESIGNER

Sara’s experience in both design firms and lighting retailers gives her a competitive edge when it comes to managing high level construction projects. Don't be deceived by her cuteness…she's a multi-tasker, list-maker and logical-thinker that delivers every time with the most contagious bubbly attitude!

ASHLYN BRAUN

DESIGNER

It was love at first sight when Ashlyn came to DMID as a summer Intern. No time was wasted in getting her on the team the minute she graduated from design school. She’s wise beyond her years and can already hold her own managing multiple client projects at once all while looking like the most stylish fashion blogger.

KATE JARECKI

DESIGNER

Kate recently joined the team after a summer internship that proved to the team exactly what this young designer is capable of.  Don’t underestimate this one or she’ll quickly prove you wrong.   Her sophisticated style, killer drafting skills, intrigue for design, and positive attitude make her the perfect final piece to the DMID puzzle!
