We thought it would be fun to share each of housewarmings team personal design styles. As touched upon in last week’s blog “Identifying Your Design Style: It’s Not All in The Name” defining your own style should be all about YOU! Even if that means coming up with a name that doesn’t fall into a “standard” style.

This week we begin with managing director and senior designer Amanda Kratochvil, who describes her design style as Warm Eclectic

A Pacific Northwest native, she enjoys hiking, baking and reading everything from romance to sci-fi fiction. Amanda also enjoys brunching and small group get togethers with her friends. She has one very grumpy cat, and an amazing niece and nephew.

Amanda holds a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and is a member of NKBA & Master Builders Association, plus president of the Westside Professionals BNI chapter.

When asked to describe her design style, this is what she said.

“My personal space needs to be warm, inviting and a bit eclectic. It always needs to have a touch of humor in it too, whether that’s a T-rex holding a pineapple pillow, (yes I really have that) or a Lord of the Rings inspired art piece, I like ensuring I include bits of myself and my husband in our space. I like mixing metals and textures. I tend to stick to blues greens and grays. I love mixing in new and old, I have an antique tea cart that was my grandmothers that I use as our bar, and a much more modern chandelier in my dining space. I showcase my husbands love of music by displaying his guitars—which are stunning in their own right— in our open living/dining space.”
