Meet Mona

Mona Stephen is the Principal and Creative Director for M One Design Group and an Interior Designer with over 15 years of experience in commercial, hospitality, and residential interior décor and design.

Under Mona’s leadership the M One Design Group portfolio now includes a diverse blend of small and large scale projects to include multi family developments, senior housing, restaurants, hotels, music studios, and residential renovations.

Her career began as a Home Depot EXPO Visual Merchandiser which then led to designing hundreds of model homes for builders and developers in the South Eastern Region. After a few years of merchandising model homes, Mona realized it was time to expand M One Design Group to include a talented team of designers and contractors.


Mona attributes her ability to attract such a diverse client portfolio to her extensive experience with merchandising model homes and the ability to maintain successful client relationships. Because model homes vary in style and price points, Mona and her team must have the ability to create environments by marketing to the demographics of who would function and live in the space.
This approach has allowed M One Design Group to consistently deliver full scale design recipes that represent the client and how their space will be aesthetically pleasing and functionally used to – look good and feel good.
