2015 in review

December 31, 2015

Happy New Year from AI How in the H-E (LL) Double Hockey Sticks is it about to be 2016? I feel like we JUST rang in the new year, and to know that another year is about to be upon us…. is crazy.  Like I normally do, let’s get sentimental and review what a year this has been for AID.

– Throwin’ it back to the beginning of 2015 –

: GOOD HOUSEKEEPING MAG :

I was lucky enough to be featured in the February 2015 issue of Good Housekeeping for Client Dr Client’s pad – I am still totally honored and flattered when any of my work gets published!

: AMBER INTERIORS WALLPAPER :

I created my own small line of wallpaper in collaboration with  and 2 other of my fave designers  and . Incase you missed it – it’s out and available to purchase through Shoppe 

It comes in these 3 patterns and color-ways below but we can also do custom colors as well – so hint HINT people!!

: HOUSE BEAUTIFUL MAG :

I was already giddy about having my own wallpaper designs AND THEN  published them in the March 2015 issue. . . It was a super “pinch me moment” because HB was one of my fave decor mags when I first started this whole journey of interior design.

: CLIENT CUTEST CANANDIANS EVER :

: CLIENT FREAKIN FABULOUS :

Where to even begin with Client Freakin’ Fabulous … They were just FREAKIN’ FABULOUS. I’m still holding on to the idea that they’ll let me camp out in their guest room, just so we can hang out every second of every single day!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I just can’t get enough of these clients and their ab fab home. Call me “STOKED” when I was told I get to design the Freakin Fabulous  NURSERY coming in 2016!!

: CLIENT DOUBLE THUMBS UP :

You all know I try not to play favorites….and I don’t, but in August, when we pumped out this little gem – Client Double Thumbs Up I struggled real hard not to just lock myself in any one of these fab rooms. One of my fave parts of this whole reveal was seeing my sweet clients faces when they stepped into their newly designed home. I can’t tell you how thrilled they were – there were definitely a few yips and yee-haws thrown into the mix that day. It was memorable!

I can’t wait to show you all these amazing projects and keep you up to speed with all the happenings.

Thank you all again for your continued support and blessings. I would be nowhere without the love you guys have showed me over the years, so truly, from the bottom of my heart, I love you!!!!!

  1. Amber-I just love your style! Whenever your post pops up in my email I always read it right away. We live just outside of Chicago so there is not a lot of that boho styling around here…. LOVE it. Congrats on a great 2015 and happy new year.

  2. HAPPY New Year! Your work is just the BEST. Looking forward to another great year of design inspiration. Thanks so much for making the time to blog and congratulations on your continued success!

  3. Hi ! thanks for the amazing year-in-review post. You and your team are a source of inspo to me everyday. And my recent visit to the Shoppe was better than Disneyland.
    Happy 2016!

  4. I love the work that you do, the vibe is awesome in everyday room. I can’t decide which project of your I love the most but the living room in double thumbs up home is simply wonderful! I want to live there! ! Your work also makes me want not to be Danish but american and not to be an adult who has to support a family but young enough that I could’t apply for an internship at your business and get to help you do the work that you do. Cudos also to your photograhper for taking those amazing shows. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work!

  5. Love all of your work- your style and interior design sense is amazing. I am always looking forward to your next posts:) Keep up the amazing work! Question for you- are there any specific sites that you pick out your wall art? Thanks so much

  6. Such an amazing year Amber, love all of the houses you did! Can’t imagine how you managed to do all this in a year.
    Would love to learn from you, are you looking for interns this year?

  7. I would love to know where the rug is from in the bedroom for your Canadian clients? I adore those colors and have been looking for a rug with those exact colors for our living room. Please let me know! Thanks so much! xx Caitlin Dash of Darling
