What an honor to be trusted with the design of your home or workplace. These are the spaces where you undertake your life’s work and create memories of beauty and value. I aim to prove to you that the designers here at down2earth interior design are worthy of your trust.
As interior designers, it’s our job to be good listeners. Great results begin with our gaining a clear understanding of your goals and vision. We pride ourselves on open communication and responsiveness. And in the end, we want you and your family to walk into your space and know that it is yours. We will be the invisible hand – the interpreters, the curators, the conduits to making your vision a reality.
I believe that the decisions made during the course of any interior design project provide countless opportunities to use natural and human resources wisely. I will help you adapt and rethink existing spaces so that they can be used more effectively, perhaps while rejuvenating existing furniture or salvaging architectural woodwork. At down2earth, my focus is to create healthy and productive environments for you. Together, we will consider the entire life-cycle of a product, not just short-term gain.
down2earth is client centered. A space is only sustainable if it works for you, the client. If your environment is hard to maintain, you will change it, and more resources will be unnecessarily consumed. In order for design to be considered sustainable, it must be consistent with your values. At down2earth, I provide practical, sensible design services within your budget so that your personal resources remain committed to your family and community.
Do you have pets or kids? I do. I know about cats who knock down vases, dogs who shed, and kids who jump all over the sofa cushions and spill juice on carpets. I believe your home should be a worry-free environment where all are welcome. A home should feel like a home, not a pristine show place. down2earth Interior Design will help you create an environment that is low maintenance, so you have more energy to think about your family, your friends, your work, and the world around us.
Do you have items that you cherish, but you have no idea how to fit them within with the style of your home? If it makes you feel good to be surrounded by objects that have sentimental value or were lovingly given as gifts, there’s almost always a way to display these without undermining your personal style. If you need assistance defining your personal style, down2earth Interior Design can help with that too – your home should be as unique as you.
We achieve creativity by brainstorming together. Our job is to understand your vision and throw ideas into the mix that would enhance that vision. We then translate those ideas into documents you can use to collaborate with contractors or purchase product on your own.
We recognize the importance of keeping the lines of communication between designer and client open, and we understand that no client is satisfied until the job is complete. Our work will be completed in the agreed-upon time table and will be of the highest quality.
Working with Amy is like having a very stylish friend who is always willing to dream about your home with you.
"I get compliments all the time on this room, even from friends who have been here before. In fact, anyone who has been here before always wants to sit in there and drink tea with me. I get so happy when I see how their shoulders drop with relaxation once they pick a spot. I’ve had more than one friend nod off in happiness in there."
One of the things we really liked about Amy was her ability to take our general concept for a particular space and turn it into a reality that was even better than we pictured it. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Your designs and choices are lovely and exactly what I was looking for. It is great to work with a designer who listens to what you like!
I appreciate you extending your designer discounts to me. I feel that is an excellent business practice and means so much, since every dollar counts with a whole house reno!
Amy is phenomenal. She's naturally gifted with an incredible eye for interior design, and as an added bonus, she's extremely professional and responsive. She's the best.
Throughout a long and stressful renovation, I could always count on excellent design counsel and product recommendations from Amy. She helped me to figure out my style, make beautiful choices that didn't break the bank, and realize the house of my dreams.
"I am a DIY girl at heart but surprisingly I was stumped with my dining room/kitchen area. I live in a small row home so space as well as functionality are key. I got in contact with "Down 2 Earth designs" and once I met with Amy in person, my mind was blown away with all the DIY ideas shared. She took her time to measure the space came up with various ideas/scenarios and gave me useful resources, which I was not aware of. I am super excited to start working on our new project. I totally recommend!"
Amy is a treasure. She has a fantastic eye for design. Her attention to detail and her creative problem-solving show in her work. Amy has transformed my living room from a sad, dark cave to the most attractive and inviting room in our home. She's also a pleasure to work with.
Amy is AMAZING! She not only listens to what you have in mind for the end result of the project, she is there to give advice when you are not sure. Amy is extremely patient! Take it from someone who changes her mind every other day.
I am loving the designs so far. My husband and I were very much on the fence about whether we should get a professional or try and do things ourselves, but we are SO happy we hired you. We can't wait for all of our furniture to arrive and see everything start coming together.
