My regular readers know how it tickles me when I come across a fellow designer that was previously unknown to me, and whose work is such that I just have to dedicate a post to it. There are many designers that I have admired over the years and who have portfolio’s that extend over decades, but I especially love it when I discover exciting younger designers. They contribute and inspire me to keep my own design esthetic from ever becoming a singularly styled approach. I have eclectic taste, and the rooms and homes I have designed over the years have allowed me to design in varied styles. Being able to see someone else’s exciting designs is not only inspiring, but exciting, and I am thrilled to share my find, Amber Interiors.
It all started when I came across this barn like structure, and was immediately intrigued by it’s architectural details.
I was unsure if I should pin it to my horse barn board on pinterest, or to another board. My curiosity led me to this designer’s web site where I was immediately intrigued by her before and after photos. As I clicked through her portfolio, I realized I was smiling….a lot. Who is this designer ? Her name is Amber Lewis, and she designs out of her own firm formed in 2010, and based in Los Angeles. When I read that the seeds for her designer destiny were planted tagging along with her developer Dad to his construction sites, I immediately related because that is where i began for me as well, although after college, I detoured for many years in biotechnology before I came back to where I should have been all along. Then when I read that she approaches design with an eclectic eye, I related even more. Her results are colorful and chic and I am delighted to feature her work today.
The following photos are from a home Amber designed for a young couple that she clearly adores – Pat, Erin, Rowan, Indy and their canine, Olive. The home was designed over a length of time, and it seems to truly reflect who this family is. So let’s check out some before and afters. I believe that the before photos were from the house when it was on the market, i.e. previous owners.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I look forward to seeing and sharing more of designs by Amber Interiors. I had quite the weekend and will share some of it with you tomorrow. Until then, happy summer day to you! Thanks for stopping by. Laters, charisse
