Amity has worked in interior design for over 14 years. She studied at both The New York School of Interior Design and Parsons, but did most of her design studies at the heels of two of New York City's most notable and talented designers, Jeffrey Bilhuber and Tom Scheerer, for whom she worked as a senior designer and project manager. She has worked in many different environments, from the urban landscape of New York City to the beaches of the Bahamas, to the mountains of the western United States, and a few places in between. She opened her design company in 2006 and recently relocated it from New York City to Austin, her home town. In her work her first focus is on furniture planning, to ensure that her designs function as well as they look. She then chooses appropriate furnishings, textures, and colors, always keeping the clients' lifestyle and taste in mind. She finds design solutions that are suitable for the way we live today, without neglecting the past, to create a comfortable, fresh, pleasing, and unpretentious outcome.
