I’m back today friends with another Inspired Design feature, where I highlight one of my favorite interior designers. Today I’m featuring Amanda Carol of Amanda Carol Interiors, who not only is a talented designer and blogger but she is also a great friend of mine. Amanda is also going to be regular contributor here on The Creativity Exchange and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her share design inspiration and tips with us on a regular basis. She has so much great stuff planned for us, so stay tuned!
Over the years, Amanda’s work has inspired me so much and I just stay in awe of her talent and amazing eye for design.
Amanda is a Houston-area designer known for balancing clean modern functional design with traditional and livable spaces. I’m not sure what Amanda calls it but I call it traditional-chic and that unique balance is not easy to do at all. Of course, Amanda does it effortlessly.
There are so many common elements in every space that Amanda designs. You will always see amazing layers of bold patterns and textures, offset by serene color palettes infused with livable and functional furniture and accessories. There is always something a little unexpected in every space she touches and it’s usually a pop of color, beautiful art or a unique furniture piece:
Recently, I have been working closely with Amanda by providing commissioned paintings for her clients and Amanda’s number one focus is always zoning in on her client’s style. I have been so amazed by how she is able to help her client’s pinpoint and determine what they like design-wise and what they really want and need from a space. How she balances all of this client-to- client is really extraordinary to me.
Amanda is also design blogger here, where she always shares fantastic design inspiration and projects in her own home:
As you can imagine, Amanda’s own home is amazing and every room in her home blows me away. So many layers, details and wonderful colors but again, classic “Amanda Carol Style”; effortlessly designed and the focus is livable and functional. Amanda has three children, so she understands the need better than anyone how to create livable spaces:
Amanda also offers E-Design services, where she helps clients design a space via email and Skype. She can provide a design plan, a mood board and a list of where to find procured furnishings for a space. This is a sample of one of Amanda’s E-Design mood boards for an E-Design client:
Of course, if you’re local in the greater Houston area, you can work with Amanda in person. You can find out more about the various design services that Amanda offers here.
Take a look around Amanda’s portfolio and blog, you will see why her work and designs are so inspiring. I’m really excited that Amanda’s going to be sharing inspiration with us here and look for Amanda’s post coming up shortly.
