Local designers offer advice on how to create personal spaces
One could describe Calgary-based interior designer Amanda Hamilton as trend averse.
“Focusing on trends is a sure way to date your home,” she said, pointing to dwellings from the 1980s that show their vintage via their yellow-oak interiors and brass details. “We don’t follow trends. Trends are interesting for people who are into fast design.”
Hamilton added current economic conditions can also further influence trends’ relevance.
