PRINCIPAL & LEAD DESIGNER
Despite the fact that my house is usually cluttered with kid's toys, I love organization. There is a peace that comes with knowing something is methodically planned and the details are all arranged. I pour a lot of myself into the designs I curate and I have a passion for helping others see the ideas they have come to life.
I try to find beauty in the unexpected places and encourage others to find what beauty means to them. Whether it’s designing a space, or detailing your day, I'm here to help shape something that is truly yours. My taste and preferences don't come into play; it's all about discovering your voice and highlighting it throughout your design.
I'm inspired by community and creating deep roots here in Hood River, OR. I believe in serving others well and for me that means my door is always open and food is on the table. You can find me at home (most the time in yoga pants and a messy bun), chasing after our little man, Granger, our two cats, and occasionally helping with marketing/graphics for my husband’s farmhouse cider company Rivercider.
I refined my craft during my time at OSU where I received my Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. Since then, I've continued learning while working as a designer in Singapore & Portland, Oregon and now look for inspiration within the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
I have a passion for architecturally designing a space or event that defines you and I tend not to give much thought to trends. Why copy someone else's design when your story is so much better? I value taking time to truly listen to your needs and I desire to deliver something that is yours and yours alone. Being intentional with the subtle details and making sure everything is clearly detailed are essential to me. I'd love get to know you and discover the best way to tell your story.
Let's grab a cup of coffee and chat.
THE ALL STAR TEAM
Social Media Director
Nicole is originally from Orange County, California, but moved to the Columbia River Gorge a couple of years ago with her husband, Rob, and dog, Koda. She has been working in Social Media Marketing for over four years, and has helped multiple businesses successfully build and maintain their digital presence. We are so happy to have her join the Strucksured team to help share the stories of what we are working on.
"I believe in connecting with people over the content. As the Social Media Director of Strucksured, my goal is to connect with our clients and serve them on a deeper level. My hope is that you see more than just a picture, but a glimpse into your future!"
Amanda graduated with a BFA in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Portland in 2011. Her focus has always been sustainable design, and she is passionate about helping people live comfortably in a smaller footprint. Her design aesthetic is inspired by her Swiss heritage and her travels in Europe.
Amanda is mother of soon to be three little ones under 5 years old, and step mother to one. She grew up in Hood River and after pursuing two bachelor degrees and living abroad she is happy to be raising her family in this special part of the world.
Amanda is also the publisher of Motherhood Magazine, a new parenting magazine for the The Gorge and greater Pacific Northwest.
Sustain & Team
Materials & GC
Sustain exclusively uses Strucksured on projects that require design services (floor plans, lighting schedules, cabinet layouts, etc). By keeping everything under one roof, you can rest assured that your project will be given an extra layer of communication and organization.
Sustain offers unique products and materials through their retail showroom. They also offer Project Management or General Contracting for remodels.
As with most things, we believe we are stronger together. That being said, if you already have a GC or Architect, we would still love to partner with them to connect you to unique and sustainable products for your home.
