Clean yet textural. Classic yet modern.
Refined design is what sets Amanda Lodge Design apart.
Although ALD is headquartered in Houston, owner Amanda worked in Austin for a large part of her career and still continues to work on numerous projects there. Austin’s innovative nature and ability to stay ahead of the curve helped Amanda refine her own design aesthetic, ultimately leading her to start her own interior design firm in 2019.
While ALD appreciates trends, the main goal is always to keep it fresh and work with you to design a space that looks and feels entirely yours, from top to bottom.
From bedrooms and living rooms to kitchens and nurseries, Amanda will work with you hand-in-hand to bring your vision to life via materials, paint colors, furnishings, and everything little thing in-between.
Growing up, Amanda was incredibly close to her grandmother who was a designer so the design bug was planted early. However, she realized a little too late into her college years that an Interior Design degree would require more time in school (which, as a 20-year-old, she couldn’t be bothered with), so she settled on Strategic Communications with a minor in Business.
After graduating from Texas Christian University, Amanda moved to Dallas and took her first job within the advertising industry, realizing pretty immediately she should’ve gone for the Interior Design degree. She wasn’t discouraged, though—she decided to forge her own path to get into the field in which she belonged, and made the move back to Houston in 2014 to attend interior design courses at the Art Institute of Houston.
While in school, Amanda also worked for Kara Childress until 2016 when she and her husband made the move to Austin. There, she furthered her interior design skills working for Mark Ashby Design, gaining more and more hands-on experience and confidence in her craft with each passing year.
Fast forward to 2019, both Amanda’s daughter Olivia and her company, Amanda Lodge Design, were born. Amanda, Eric, Olivia, and their Goldendoodle, Lola, now reside in Houston, Texas.
Laura Lee, a native Houstonian, attended the University of Texas where she earned a degree in Liberal Arts and a minor in Business. Following graduation, her love of people and the community lead her to non-profit work where she worked for both the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Alley Theatre. Laura Lee loves interior design and was thrilled to join Amanda Lodge Design in 2022. She embraces the challenge of taking an individual client's lifestyle and needs to help assemble a unique and customized space. Laura Lee loves using textures, natural tones, and modern lines to create something beautiful for each client.
