Project Designer

Cynthia Duckworth

Cynthia is a native Georgia Peach who has always had a passion for art and color. Since the age of 12, she knew she wanted to be an interior designer when her parents did a major addition to their home wherein, she was allowed to design her room. Upon completion and having seen the results, her sister begged to switch rooms with her. This early success precipitated Cynthia’s passion and love for interior design.

After graduating with honors with a B.F.A. in Art History from Georgia State University, she immediately began studying interior design at American Intercontinental University in Buckhead. Cynthia has extensive hands-on experience in kitchen and bathroom design.

When she is not at work, Cynthia loves going to the beach with her husband and son, hanging out with her boy-mom girlfriends and boxing with Supernatural, a Virtual Reality workout app.

Cynthia believes that well-designed spaces provide an immeasurable impact on a client’s health, wealth, and happiness, and loves being part of the process.

Junior Designer

Riann Meyer

Riann was born in Melbourne, Florida then later moved to Northern Virginia where she completed high school. She went on to attend the University of Central Florida which brought her back to her Florida roots. At UCF, Riann took multiple architecture design courses, inspiring her creative side as well as the completion of her Associates of Arts. Her time in this program guided her to take a different approach for her bachelor’s degree — to study interior design – and she never looked back. Riann will be graduating this December from Seminole State College of Florida with her Bachelor of Applied Science in Interior Design.

In June of 2022, Riann became an intern at Coastal Design, where she quickly fell in love with residential design and Alexandra’s top notch design team. Upon completion of her bachelor’s degree, she will become a permanent member of the design team and join as a junior designer. She is looking forward to the opportunity to continue working with our lovely clients and see their dream space come to life!
