MVN DESIGN, founded by interior designer Michael Van Nort, offers a full array of interior design and decoration services.  Comfortable, understated elegance and a warm, modern palette are signature components of the firm’s design aesthetic. Current MVN Design projects include private residences in New York City, Northern New Jersey, Westchester County, Fire Island and the Hudson Valley.

MVN DESIGN combines high and low pieces with custom designed furniture, antique and vintage one of a kind finds, along with modern and contemporary art and accessories to create uniquely tailored and highly personal interiors; clients’ existing furnishings are always considered and incorporated when desired. All furnishings are selected to enhance the surrounding architecture and to provide a comfortable, organized yet never fussy, inviting home.

MVN DESIGN strives to create long-term relationships with clients and believes that highly responsive client service and attention to detail are of the utmost importance, in turn creating beautiful interiors and memorable events.


Michael Van Nort received a Bachelor’s Degree in fine arts from Binghamton University and a Master’s Degree in elementary education from Hofstra University.  While teaching third grade, MVN realized that his favorite part about teaching was redecorating his classroom, so he returned to the classroom himself to obtain formal training. In 2003, MVN completed an Associate’s Degree in interior design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and began working at  boutique design firm Full Scale, Inc. After five successful years there, MVN went on to work for Jed Johnson Associates and more recently worked in showrooms for design industry leaders, Donghia and Holly Hunt.  MVN’s passion for design extends beyond interiors into entertaining and events.  Event services include menu planning, table settings, floral design and holiday décor, along with complete event coordination for intimate occasions.
