I grew up in the cozy little town of Karlstad, MN. I graduated from North Dakota State University in 1997 with a degree in Interior Design. My first job out of college was at the NDSU Alumni Association (Go Bison!). My internship and first design job was at Ste. Marie Design, a hospitality firm, where I learned and practiced commercial and hospitality design until the firm closed its Fargo branch in 2002. I found employment with a builder and then a design center where I discovered a love of residential design and new construction. During these years, I passed the NCIDQ exam to become a certified interior designer. These various positions gave me the experience needed to realize my dream of owning my own business! I think, for any parent, balancing work and home life is a difficult juggling act. While I love being an interior designer, I love being a mom even more. Owning my own business gives me the flexibility to balance (or juggle) both! I am a volunteer for various organizations including serving as a confirmation guide at church. I am also a board member of the Home Builder's Association, a member of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber, North Dakota Interior Designers, and serve on the Events Committee at the Home Builders Association. Outside of work and volunteer activities, I love being with my family. My husband Phil, and our three sons are my great crew of boys! Our oldest, Griffin, is in grad school at MSU Mankato. Our middle, Marcus, is a sophomore at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. Our youngest, Henry, is a 9th grader at Davies High School. When we aren't at kiddo activities, I enjoy reading a book or magazine and look forward to a trip or two each year.
Life is busy and I love it that way!

We have had the privilege of working with Monica on several different projects over the past few years. From floor layouts, carpet, paint and furniture selection, color scheme, design principle, efficiency of living space and practicality of pieces Monica has been outstanding to work with. Meeting with Monica before each project set the stage for a smooth process. She listened to our family wants and needs as well as our lifestyle and personalities. She really strives to make everything she does feel unique and personal to you. We appreciated her attention to detail and excitement she showed making each project so personable and special to our family. Monica is a true professional and an all around wonderful human being. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have a supportive, hard working, and energetic professional take care of all their design needs.
We absolutely LOVE our home and at least twice a week we make that proclamation. You know I had my reservations going into this remodel and you assured me that we would make it the home we wanted to be at. You did not disappoint! We use every room in the house and it flows so well. Your furniture planning was spot on and the decor is to die for! We really, really love that our remodeled cabin now feels like Home.
Monica is hands down the best in Fargo.
10 stars on a scale of 1-5.
It has been my great pleasure to collaborate on many, many projects with Monica Hart for well over a decade. Monica always brings her wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to every project. Her signature spark and spontaneity are reflected in her award-winning designs!

Love my living room refresh!
Thanks for the wonderful ideas!
Monica helped us with a major remodel of our home. She started with drawings and plans and worked with us all through construction. She was extremely supportive in helping us pick out everything we needed from light fixtures & window coverings to flooring and even the color of the rooms. She got to know our personalities and what we liked and made the whole process easy and painless. We would definitely recommend working with Monica!

Best decision ever! There are no words to express the wonderful work of MHID. Monica took our house and transformed it into our home. She read us, understood our needs and captured our style with unbelievable professionalism. She was able to go beyond her profound knowledge and connect with the client as a human being, so each detail in our home says something about us as a family. We keep rediscovering it as time passes by. There is no place we would rather be than home, and part of that feeling we definitely have to thank MHID for.
Monica has made a stressful move into a easier transition.
She is calm, shows patience and is prepared!!
Monica helped me with every step of our construction including but not limited to outlets, flooring, paint color, wallcovering, bathroom fixtures and lighting, outdoor furniture, and decor. She helped me choose quality items that would withstand the wrath of three small boys in their growing years and were still comfortable to live in and beautiful to look at. Not only did she space plan EVERYTHING so that my furniture fit perfectly, she was able to ensure my young family of three boys under 5 at the time had what they needed and I was able to have some girly touches. Monica Hart is easily the best designer in the tristate area and I have recommended her countless times to my colleagues and friends. She made my life easier, and this was the easiest money I ever spend and I would do it all over again tomorrow.
Excellent staff!! They have such a wonderful design eye, and are able to see the clients vision.
I reached out to Monica for guidance after moving into a home that needed some work. She quickly identified issues that were making it difficult to design. Monica met with me to provide suggestions, color choices, and direction. She's down to earth and commits her time, attention, and excellence to projects, regardless of scale. Second to none in our area! Thanks MHID!
