Amy Meier is the founder and Principal Designer of Amy Meier Design, a critically acclaimed residential design firm, and Amy Meier, a home goods destination that features exclusive collaborations with artists and craftspeople, as well as vintage, antique, and one-of-a-kind pieces for the home. Trained in photography and fashion at UC Boulder and Parsons, respectively, Amy sees design as composition: the creative process of assembly and arrangement of disparate parts into a cohesive whole. The key, she believes, is to not merely focus on pleasing aesthetics, but rather focus on the embodiment and elicitation of emotion. With projects all over North America that span the gamut of settings, styles, and clients, no two Amy Meier projects look, or feel alike, but her body of work is united as a collection of sophisticated, thoughtful, and edited compositions.
In today’s episode, we discuss Amy’s background in fashion, taking a leap and pursuing a new career, and what it’s like to work with her husband every day while running a successful design firm and a beautifully curated store.
