Ahhhh Amber

If you have not discovered Amber Lewis, please let me be the first to introduce you to this inspiring designer. Amber Lewis is the Founder of Amber Interior Design in Southern California. Over the years I have been inspired my many interior designers, but I can truly say when I found Amber’s work, it opened up a whole new world of interior design.

A few years ago, my husband and I bought a 1970s era house in the Biltmore area of Phoenix, AZ. Unfortunately, the house had been “remodeled” around the early 2000s. It had travertine floors, brown marble tile in the showers, and the original dark wood cabinets throughout. At the time, I had just graduated from my Nurse Practitioner program and with looming student loans hanging over my head I didn’t have the budget for a full gut job. So, I looked for inspiration, and low and behold, I found Amber.

In my opinion, Amber’s work embraces the elements and colors of nature in a way I’ve never experienced before. She designs multi-million homes, in a way that makes them appear elegant, yet remain approachable and easily lived in. In other words, if your two year old ran into the living room of one of these homes and starting jumping up and down on the sofa it would be okay. She embraces natural color palettes and uses earthy textures, like wood grains and leather, in a way that melds modern and traditional style with the ease of a summer breeze. And the pillows. Don’t even get me started on the pillows (I have a pillow obsession, but we’ll talk about that later). So instead of longing to tear up and tear out everything old in my house, I found myself wanting to embrace and enhance the 70s asymmetrical lines and browns and tans that already existed in my new found home. The results changed my thoughts on design forever; and enhanced my style like never before. In my opinion, Amber Lewis is the leader in simple creative elegance, and I will forever be grateful for her inspiring design.
