Stacey Dobrovolny has been in the professional field of Interior Design and worked as a design professional for over 25 years with a portfolio that spans the US from Hawaii to Maine. She specializes in luxury, bespoke design for homes, small office spaces, boutique hotels, and working with luxury builders.
Her professional design journey began when she was a little girl and had a desire to be an entrepreneur, from an early age. She grew up watching her dad and grandmother operate both of their businesses, and knew she wanted to someday have one of her own.
When she was in the sixth grade, her grandmother (who she affectionately called “Gong-Gong”) bought her a Crayola Designer Kit. Stacey would sit for hours on end tracing, designing, and coloring images of rooms. When she asked her grandma if there was a way she could do this when she grew up, her Gong-Gong told her it was called being an “Interior Designer”.
From that point forward, Stacey knew that is what she wanted to be. She was President of the school’s FHA club and competed in Interior Design competitions in high school (yes, she was a true design nerd and yes, there was such a thing!). From there, she attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA where she graduated with honors and a degree in Interior Design.
After years of holding positions in commercial, high end residential, high end hospitality, retail, and federal government design, Stacey decided to take the leap and open her own business as an interior design professional. In 2019, the boutique interior design firm, 2 Navy Lane, was born and Stacey’s lifelong dream became a reality.
Stacey is easy-going and personable and loves finding solutions to meet her client’s needs and desires. She believes in blending beauty and function in sophisticated, elegant, and unique ways. Clients love that Stacey is fun to work with, and brings their unique personality and lifestyle needs into each design she creates.
In her free time, you will find Stacey off on an adventure with her husband, three children and their crazy golden retriever, Ellie. She loves sailing, traveling, connecting with friends, scrapbooking, anything artistic, and immersing herself in a great book.
What’s the story behind the name?
We get asked this question a lot by our clients and we love sharing the story of how 2 Navy Lane came to get its name! When Stacey used to drive to and from her 9-5 (87 miles each way), she would listen to podcasts about Interior Design and running her own business the whole way there and back! It gave her hope that someday she could open her own boutique interior design firm and become an entrepreneur!
One day, as she was sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, the name “Navy Lane” popped into her head and she scrambled to write it down on a piece of scratch paper before the cars started moving again. She immediately called her best friend to run the idea by her – and she loved it too!
When she went to purchase the domain for that special “someday” when she would open her own studio, she discovered that it was $10,000. Defeated, she asked her husband what she should do. She knew this had to be the name of her business! He wisely told her to add her favorite number to the front of it, which would help her name to stand out.
And like that, the name 2 Navy Lane was born!
