Amy’s entrepreneurial spirit and eclectic background have shaped her design philosophies. She is passionate about creating spaces that reflect a client’s personal style while incorporating elements of nature. Optimal space & furniture planning, complimentary lighting and color, beautiful accessories, and the use of eco-friendly materials, work in harmony to create a specific mood. The end result is that the client loves to return to their space that is beautiful and functional, but also healthy and relaxing.
When staging properties for real estate professionals, Amy uses a “simplify the space” approach. Creating a neutral atmosphere involves streamlining things visually and aesthetically while creating appealing vignettes that make the space look more polished and pulled together. This helps prospective buyers see beyond the seller’s home and imagine themselves in the space.

My previous experience in retail management, setting up the flow of a store and creating merchandise displays, helped my stores become some of the highest grossing retail stores in the company.
