At first I fell in love with the sleek designs produced by Amanda Hamilton Interior Designs, with their strong contrast and bold corners, then I read the bios of the team at AHID. Amanda Hamilton and her tastemaker associate Ashley Dasent are creative, bold, active, seeking, and intelligent women, easily making me feel like entrusting them to altering the landscape of my home.
AHID offers both residential and commercial designing, but today we’re only going to focus on their residential work, as it is truly inspiring. For their commercial work, please head to their portfolio.
When I first approached Amanda Hamilton asking if she’d be interested in appearing on COT, she replied with so much enthusiasm it made me excited to start immediately exploring what they really do! This enthusiasm clearly flairs through on their interior designs.
Their designs give a sense of infinity. One thing I don’t like about most interiors is having a kitchen tables that are far to small to fit everything on. The idea of having far too much counter space is intriguing. I like flowers too.
I like the boldness of their creations. Hardwood floors with beautifully fitting carpets to offer the family rooms a touch of comfort. Soft, plump looking couches, large calming art pieces, and very effective uses of light spaces.
Another thing that I really like about the spaces is that they use beautiful ottomans. A good ottoman is what every room needs. Also, in the same breath, they have beautiful coffee tables. I enjoy the low profile they like to use allowing for functionality without the overwhelming feeling such a piece can sometimes give off.
Did you see the candles in the fireplace? What a brilliant idea!
Using stacked books in the family room also offers that sense of comfort, sense of home that one so desires in their living space. It’s ok to have some organized reading lying around!
The bedrooms offer a symmetry that’s balanced with a subtle yin/yang. A calming effect really.
One can really get a feeling that these women don’t let any little detail slip their vision; they’re not satisfied withalmostthere, they go the distance.
I like the touch with the Louboutins and the yellow vase. I think those exemplify the designers style.
