Unassuming. Enthusiastic. Problem Solver.

 
 

For over 10 years, Amanda has been working in the Interior Design industry and her passion has only grown. She knew early on that design of some form was her chosen career path. She graduated on the Dean’s Honour List with a Bachelor of Environmental Design, majoring in Interior Design at the University of Manitoba in 2009. After graduating she worked at Grant Design Group for over three years years where she worked her way up to a senior designer position.

Following Debbie, Amanda moved onto Fenwick & Co. Interior Design where she was mentored in residential interiors. Through these experiences, Amanda has learned the the ins and outs of coordinating with architects, mechanical, electrical, and structural engineers, making her an exceptional lead on all of her projects.

Amanda knows that giving the “why” behind every suggestion and decision is key to building a trusting client relationship. Amanda prides herself on being an expert in manipulating floor plans that use every last inch of space efficiently. Her enthusiasm and passion bring a sense of forward motion to the projects that she works on and this energy allows her clients to get on board with her vision.

Amanda derives inspiration from mid-century design, and she’s slightly obsessed with mid-century furniture designers like Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Arne Jacobsen, Harry Bertoia, George Nelson, Alvar Aalto, Florence Knoll and Phillip Starke (not mid-century, but still love). She’s even started a chair collection to celebrate her love of furniture design. She’s also inspired by Meredith Heron's general attitude towards design - though she might not identify with Heron’s aesthetic, her passion and risk taking are noteworthy. Zaha Hadid is another inspiration due to the willingness she had to push boundaries.

Amanda knows how to spin sweet jams (because she used to be a DJ), embraces challenges and has a passion for design, dogs and dance parties. Her love of travel often inspires her projects and she’s travelled extensively across numerous continents.

Amanda is a go-getter, a passionate client advocate, and she would be thrilled to join you on your next project.
