Amanda's Top Tip

  • Research before our initial meeting goes a long way – research the style you desire or think of the issues in your current space that you want to be resolved. We can truly create almost anything you can dream of. Also, prioritize layout and interior function first. It's easier to choose a design when you see how the space works best.

Favourite Projects

When clients have a specific vision and want to make the most out of their space. We recently finished a client's kitchen where we customized each drawer and cabinet to fit their personal needs. It was truly rewarding.

Personal Style

Current Personal Dream Design:
I love antiques and mixing natural textures, so I really love adding them in when I can! I also love the stain Wormy Maple by Chervin, but sadly, it doesn’t fit the style of my 118-year-old home

Happy this fad is over:
I'm a big believer that if you love a space then it doesn’t matter if it’s in fashion. I'm always happy to help clients make it work

Hobbies

Current Hobbies:
I enjoy listening to music, gardening, knitting, yoga, playing with my cats, or hanging out on the beach at my cottage

Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Definitely sewing, since I just bought a new machine

Favourite Meal

To Cook:
Lasagna is my go-to, but also stuffed peppers – I love cooking in general

To Eat:
My grandma's homemade spaghetti
