    white glove talent and service all the way.

I am so happy with my condo and feel very lucky to have found Amity and Andrée. THEY are white glove talent and service all the way. They have excellent associates and in-house staff. From the very first meeting, their professionalism and ability to connect with my style inspired complete confidence. I especially valued being well taken care of–Amity was the best advocate for me beyond a customer role in a project. I would have been completely lost on my own. (I am currently planning to return for more–and can’t wait!)

Amity and her staff were wonderful to work with on our total kitchen remodel. We knew we wanted a completely different kitchen within our existing footprint but had NO idea how to get there. Her designer’s eye for what was possible revealed options we’d not even considered, and our new kitchen is that much more modern, spacious, and functional for her input. I appreciated the give and take in the design process, and also the team’s mindfulness in providing options based on our budget stipulations. They were professional and engaging from start to finish, and the end result is just beautiful!

Amity Worrel & Co. assisted us with transforming our boring spec builder house into a home. Amity skillfully listened to the concerns I had with the house and somehow turned all the negatives into wows. We had an awkward long entry hall that is now one of my favorite features of the house. I wholeheartedly recommend Amity and her team for any design needs.

Working with Amity and her team is a fantastic experience. We completed a substantial renovation of the most important spaces for a family with young kids – the kitchen, dining, living and laundry room – as well as the master bedroom.

I knew that I wanted bold colors and patterns, and I love how Amity balanced my style with warm, durable and timeless touches. During the thick of reconstruction, Amity came to the house daily to check on making sure all the details were coming together as planned. It sure eased the anxiety of a house remodel!

Additionally, Amity has excellent resources – including the general contractor, to the mobile cabinet hardware supplier, to the kitchen appliance showroom – which, again just made the process smoother. After more than a year of working together, I have jokingly said that I will have Amity and Andree withdrawals.

Over time we felt that they simply understood our wishes, and as a result, our trust in their professional hands has been very rewarding. Every day our home make me smile. We look forward to working again with Amity and her team in the future.

Having lived in Austin for 7 years, I’ve come to know quite a few interior designers. My architect suggested I consider Amity and I am so very glad I did. She is wonderful! Amity and her team are an absolute joy to work with. They spent time learning about my personal style. This was very much appreciated and was reflected in the selections she made for us.

In addition to being super nice and completely devoid of pretension, Amity is extraordinarily talented. She really has a gift for making a space fit both the home and the individual’s personal style.

Working with Amity has been an absolute delight! She listened to what we wanted and transformed our space into our dream home. Best of all, she isn’t stuffy and keeps an eye on the bottom line. She saved us from making costly mistakes which allowed us to do more. We could not by happier with the investment we made in Amity’s services. We are thrilled with the house and all that she has helped us do.

As the owner of the home in the White Rock project photos, I worked with Amity over about a 6 month time period and was extremely impressed. From beginning to end, she and her team were very professional and always responsive to my needs and requests, day or night.

After the initial design consultation, during which they presented me with a variety of inspirational images, we had a clear picture of where we were going. From there, Amity and Andree made it a very collaborative process for selecting furniture, color schemes, artwork and accessories. They made me feel like I have good taste, even though I don’t! Just look at the pictures…these ladies are amazing. So awesome, in fact, that I’ve already hired them for another project for my second home! I couldn’t recommend them enough.

—David Griffus

We have had the great pleasure of working with Amity Worrel for over a year, as we moved through the many phases of a challenging home building process. Amity and her team have been incredibly efficient at discerning our preferences and needs, and coming up with solutions and materials which match our vision for our new home.

When the we lost our original architect, she quickly guided us to a new architect whom she believed we would appreciate, and she was right. In short, she has been the patient, sensible, efficient and accommodating guiding force in the many twists and turns, decision points, and tough times thus far, and we rely on her good judgment and superb taste at every turn. It has been our pleasure to recommend her to friends and clients, alike, all of whom share our outstanding opinion of her.

—Chris Mulcahy

Amity Worrel and her team are amazing! After I had my salon designed, I encountered a specific issue relating to the usage of some of the furniture. I needed color options which would allow me to use the same pieces of furniture however in a darker color and still have it work within the entire design scheme. After presenting multiple color options for both the furniture and accent colors for the salon, Amity worked with me in how to present the color scheme. Amity’s solution worked beautifully. I could not have asked for a better partner, collaborator and creative designer with whom to work.

—Janet St. Paul

Our experience working with Amity was incredibly fantastic — beyond anything we had expected from a designer (and her talents clearly go way beyond design). We looked at over sixty houses when we moved to Austin, a process which we found discouraging. Now, thanks to Amity, we have a house that is incredibly personalized, beautiful, and better than anything we ever expected to own. Best, it is not overly flashy or over-designed, which you see all too often with remodels.

Not only are her design ideas original, but working with her is a sheer pleasure. She’s not a snob, she’s a great listener, she’s incredibly organized and attentive to detail, she never questions your budget and helps you stick to it, and she makes sure everything gets done on time and done right. To boot, she has a great sense of humor and is fun to be around. Amazing! We are the only people we know, I think, who have had such a positive remodeling experience, thanks entirely to her!

Amity was incredibly helpful in helping us choose bold and brilliant paint colors inside our home that fit us and our furnishings. We relish the effect every time we walk in the front door, entertain guests, or sit by a window and watch the light on the walls. She transformed our front rooms with delightful sconces and a new seating arrangement that literally gave us an extra room where before we had a walk-by-me area. Creative, thorough, knowledgeable, and resourceful – that is Amity!
