A Stress-Free Way To Create The Most Harmonious Home Environment That You Will Adore That Reflects Your Personality And Provides You With Peace.

You would think decorating and designing your home would be easy right? (thanks is part to Pinterest and the rise of home renovations shows).

But once you actually get started in the process, you quickly realise that it’s a lot more work than meets the eye.

With so many different styles and options, how do you ever decide on furniture, artwork and decor?

Interior decorating and styling is no easy task — and it’s really not for everyone.

And that is why an interior stylist can be your most important investment, liaison and confidant that helps you create a home that is truly where you want to spend your time.

Simply put, an interior stylist, helps you make efficient use of the space, suggests artwork, furniture and accents to make your home.

Most people think that working with an interior stylist is a simple case of zeroing in on aesthetics: colour palettes, furniture, cushions.

But that’s just scratching the surface of what can really be added to your home.

It’s going beyond the cosmetic concerns to ensure that a space feels harmonious though and through.

And here at Amanda Smythe Design I can do just that for you.

Working with my clients I don’t use a strict design solutions.

It isn’t about a prescribed style.

Instead, together we will find a style which feels most authentic to you.

Let me help you infuse your home with your signature style and feel relaxed in your space.

Why You Should Choose To Work With Me

You’re going to save money:

Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked so good in the store, but was a too big once you got it home? I can help you avoid costly mistakes and help you make design decisions that will increase the value of your home. And if you’re on a tight budget, I know how to get the best value out of what you can spend.

You’re going to save time:

Designing your space can be time consuming. With the weekends spent hunting for that piece you need or even the hours wasted searching online it can be frustrating when you just cannot get the right look for your home. I know just what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, and can anticipate any obstacles that may come up.

You’re going to get a professional assessment:

When we work together, you get an immediate plan of action for your space. With my trained eye I spot things you’re guaranteed to miss. It is simply a balance of art and science and I know how to fuse them together.

You’re going to have better resources and contacts: 

It can be difficult to find good resources. I already work in the world of improvement, so I have reliable connections that you may need and I have access to tons of products and fabric that is not available to the general public. With these resources, we can create a space for you that looks collected and unique (instead of the big box retailer stuff everyone has in their home).

You’re going to have the wow factor:

People notice a well-designed home. I pride myself on my ability to think creatively and spatially and can see the overall picture that my clients often cannot. Thinking outside of the box is what I do for my clients, so that they can really create a wow factor for their home. Not only will you get a good design sense, but you’ll also get a style that feels most authentic to you and that you can feel relaxed in.
