Despite her formal art training and years at Christie’s Auction House, Amanda prefers to upend the usual design rules in favor of a fresh, energetic approach that draws as much upon intuition as tradition. Mixing function and style, classical motifs and contemporary idioms in rich and unexpected ways, she never loses her sense of wit and whimsy, or her conviction that a home is for living in, and the designer’s job is foremost to answer a client’s needs, wishes, and dreams. Accordingly, Amanda keeps both her company and number of active projects small, thus ensuring her commitment to every home she creates.
Amanda is featured in books by Blue Carreon, Susanna Salk, Ronda Rice Carman, Carl Dellatore, Kips Bay, and Stark, and is a popular speaker at design events. Additionally, Amanda has been featured in these publications, among others:

Great style, great color, great writing... the pictures, the author's point of view come sailing through. I loved it. The rooms Amanda decorates are gorgeous, livable, and not typical...
This book is a great addition to your helpful books on decorating. The pictures are beautiful as well as the very well-written text. I was able to glean some creative ideas and loved learning the mindset of a decorator.
Dazzling indeed! This book is fantastic. I enjoyed reading the book and could relate easily to her ideas. The book is well written and the photos are beautiful.
