Amanda Amato on Interior Design

Amanda Amato, Interior Designer of AMA Designs and Interiors, LLC, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss her unique approach to designing for each customer.

“I believe that your home should reflect your personality,” Amato says. When she does designs, they are the projection of the person she is working with.

“If a person is playful, I can tell that we can put some pattern and color into their space. If a person is calm, subdued colors would work better in their space,” she says. “I really pull from the vibe of the person.”
