Designer Amanda Nesbit

Career Change

Amanda Nesbit (AN): I started my business 10 years ago by doing some projects for close friends while I was still acting in local theater productions. As I began designing more and more, I was acting far less, and the business took off from there!

Color and Lines

AN: Billy Baldwin and David Hicks for their inspirational use of color and timeless clean lines.

Multipurpose Design

AN: You must edit every piece in a multifunctional room so that everything serves a specific purpose and, in some cases, more than one.

From the Ground Up

AN: Fabric―definitely―every time.

Top It Off

AN: Caesar Stone on the counters (for its great colors, different thicknesses and resistance to staining), high-gloss paint on cabinets, and wood for the floors. Wood is timeless and more forgiving than stone.

Over It

AN: Vessel sinks in the bathroom. They’re overexposed and not even practical.

Counter Culture

AN: Auntie Mame

Deal With It

AN: TVs are what they are. There’s no denying that we all have them and use them all the time, so there’s no need to go to a lot of trouble to hide them. Everyone knows what you’ve got in the enormous cabinet!

At the same time, avoid placing it over the mantel. Work it into the living space but don’t make it the central focus.

Let Loose

AN: Playing it safe and worrying too much about retaining resale value.

Big Spender

AN: Splurge on upholstery and save on trendy accessories.
