Who's behind it all?

Well, hello there! Let me introduce myself. I have many names, but the one I respond to best is Amanda. I was born and raised in Richmond, VA for the first 17 years of my life. During my senior year of high school, I enlisted in the US Navy and was shipped off San Diego, CA. I embarked on two aircraft carriers and a destroyer during my military career. After 8 years of active duty, I decided that I had served my country and that it was time to serve my family. So how did I end up an interior designer, you may wonder?


 I always had a passion for interior design. I used to watch my mom rearrange furniture and repurpose decor to make something new out of something old. I saw how happy it made her, I recognized how it made me feel, and I saw the compliments she would get from friends and family. She is a true artist and used her eye for art to create a beautiful and inspiring home.

Studio Eight is a family-owned and operated business. You will see the whole fam helping at site visits and installations. Below are the smiling faces that make Studio Eight possible.

Design isn't just my profession; it's my passion and the heartbeat of my creative journey. From the nuanced selection of grout colors to witnessing the final transformation, every aspect of interior design fuels my love for crafting spaces that resonate with emotion and provide comfort. The joy of making a positive impact and curating environments where people spend the majority of their time is fulfilling. My mission is clear: to bring happiness to people's homes. I aspire to design spaces that people truly love and allow them to live their best lives. Let's embark on the journey together!
