Owner & Principal Designer
Amanda is responsible for managing large scale residential and commercial projects. After completing the design, she works with the contractor to ensure the design details are executed during construction. As an owner and lead designer, Amanda also serves as a creative director for members of our design team. She works with the team to create processes, establish financial goals and develop growth plans for expanding our brand. Amanda’s desire is to make others feel comfortable in their own home. Creating functional and beautiful spaces that others enjoy is her greatest reward and is always in the forefront of her mind when designing. The best compliment to her is when a client says, "this is exactly what I wanted, but I didn't know how to create it!" Together with her husband, Eric, Amanda’s greatest joy has been raising two daughters and watching them grow into young women. She loves to draw, create, and play the piano. Amanda also loves to travel and is inspired by what people outside of our region are doing in their spaces. One thing Amanda encourages her clients to do is remember that design is supposed to be fun, creative, and unique. The results should be an expression of each individual, which is a freedom to make your space your own. The process should be fun and not stressful. It should look like you and be filled with the things you love.
