AMC Design has been featured in several publications, a selection of which is below. We’ve also been lucky enough that some very happy clients have told us how it was working with us.
In the press
Check out August’s edition of 25 Beautiful Homes to see a recent client project. I loved how my client embraced the use of colour to bring a new look to their family home.
We’re in January 2017’s edition of 25 Beautiful Homes (currently in the shops). A link to the article will follow, once it’s online, but in the meantime, stock up. Or check out the photos in my gallery.
Bringing an Edwardian beauty up to date. (Yorkshire Post, November 2016), featuring a gorgeous house in Ilkley which was given a new lease of life. This property was also featured in the Wharfe Valley Property Blog.
Creating a warm and vibrant home is a big part of my design philosophy. Sharon Dale at the Yorkshire Post came to talk to me about it in July 2016 (Yorkshire Post, July 2016).
I’ve also been featured on Laura Koshel’s blog, following my trip to Maison et Objet in January.
“Ann Marie helped me to redesign our kitchen diner for our proposed extension. It was brilliant to have her input at the very start of the project and she was invaluable in thinking about how the new spaces should be used. We have small children and Ann Marie was able to combine style and creativity but also take into account the practicalities of family life. Ann Marie pushed me outside of my comfort zone in terms of thinking about new colours that I would never have considered if I had been working alone. The result is that we are going to end up with something amazing that I could never have achieved without Ann Marie’s help. I cannot recommend her services enough.”
“I hired Ann Marie as my home felt a bit dated. She was great at taking on board my ideas and coming up with suggestions which complemented them, and even pushed me a bit further than I had anticipated. Her creativity and lateral thinking meant that her ideas were practical as well as beautiful, and reflected how we use our home. Her project management skills were fantastic and having her involved every step of the way meant that a huge project (7 rooms) was not stressful for us, and there was minimal disruption. Without her help I would not have ended up with such a beautiful and welcoming home which reflects my tastes and needs so well. I can’t recommend Ann Marie highly enough.”
“Thank you so much, Ann Marie, for the amazing job you have done with our house. Having attempted to “interior design” my house myself on 2 occasions (and been disappointed with the final result) I contacted Ann Marie following a recommendation. The finished result is wonderful. I would recommend her without hesitation.”
Mrs H, Leeds.
“We had fallen out of love with our house and Ann Marie gave us some creative suggestions on how to use the space more effectively. We’ve just implemented her design for our bedroom; the result is a beautiful room that works perfectly for us.”
“Ann Marie not only has excellent taste and a great eye for design, she is extremely knowledgeable about the less glamorous but very necessary side of remodelling – need for permissions, placement of water pipes and drains etc. She also has an amazing ability to see possibilities and options no one else has thought of, which can completely change a project for the better.
I am based in the US but she was able to advise me based on videos, photos and dimensions of the room in question and made sure to recommend US suppliers.”
KL, Reno, Nevada
“To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure about using the services of an interior designer but I have to say, I wouldn’t look back. With a brief to decorate my two, very different, children’s bedrooms in a way which would grow with them, to a fixed budget, Ann Marie chose colours I wouldn’t have thought of, and spent money on good quality furnishings as well as cleverly re-using existing pieces. The personalities of the children were reflected in the design, and they felt involved in the process.
The project itself was stress-free, with no hassle, and I could get on with life as normal while Ann Marie sorted out all of the buying, organised tradesmen and dressed the room. Ann Marie dealt with any issues which arose, and was a pleasure to deal with.
The finished product is two high quality rooms which work really well for my family, and which my children love. They even keep them tidy(-ish)!”
