ABOUT LACEY + CASIE
Amen Design co. adheres to a philosophy and method that is hybrid of classical interior design technique and intuitive awareness of our projects needs. The result is an approach rooted in spacial authenticity and brining to life our clients needs and desires through the framework of our tried and true design process for clients both near and far.
While we stick to our design process for all projects, each interior design package is bespoke and custom-quoted.
STANDARD OVER CIRCUMSTANCES //
The times may be uncertain, but we do know this: no matter what the circumstances, our standards will be maintained. This may mean things take a little longer or require an innovative approach, but the AD co. standard of Modern + Soulful excellence and attention to detail will never be compromised and we’ll be in your corner every step of the way.
AUTHENTICALLY SOULFUL + MODERN //
Each design concept we create is deeply rooted in the location, function, and
architectural aura of the space. Our goal is to honor these elements while also bringing to life an aesthetic that is balanced, organic and thoughtfully curated with meaningful pieces that tell our clients stories. This philosophy and approach applies to a variety of aesthetic preferences and we pride ourselves on being able to interpret and execute a spectrum of styles while maintaining our signature look.
AVANT GARDE //
We aim to include subtle, often small avant garde pieces in each space. Sometimes we’ll even get a little bold and big! Either way, small conversation starters such as a unique sculpture or pop of unexpected pattern in each space create a vibe that is unique to our clients and spark interest and joy!
SUSTAINABLE , CUSTOM + CONSCIOUS //
Many pieces we use are custom, thoughtfully designed with conscious materials and fabricated by skilled and passionate craftsmen and women. This is our way of considering the environment, cutting waste, supporting our industry and giving our clients one-of-kind spaces.
