I have worked with Amy Trowman on many projects over the last 8 years but knew of her by reputation before that. What I like about working with Amy is that each design is tailored to seamlessly blend the architecture of each home with the aesthetic preferences of the homeowner, creating beautiful spaces that are uniquely personal and customized. The fact that she is a pleasure to work with is a bonus! I would highly recommend Amy without hesitation.
I have worked with Amy on several projects, including a beachfront full home remodel that took place on the Isle of Palms while I was still living in Chicago. Amy was nothing short of amazing. Amy's sense of design is outstanding, but beyond that she really considers how you will use and live in your home. She has the best eye for color that I have ever encountered. Amy works very well with all the other players involved: contractors, architects, subcontractors, etc. My home is 100% better because of Amy's involvement. She is currently helping me with a mountain home and, again, her input is invaluable. Finally, Amy communicates well and is an absolute pleasure to be around.

We recently completed a custom home on Sullivan's Island and Amy was involved from start to finish. Amy was absolutely amazing to work with! Amy and her team were very organized, on schedule with selections, and they actually paid attention to the allowances that we provided, which doesn't happen very often. The entire process was very smooth and the end result was fantastic! Amy has a great eye for design, but she also has a common sense approach, so we were able to work together to create the details that they wanted, without breaking the bank. The owners were very happy with Amy as well and I know that they would be happy to work with her again. I would highly recommend Amy Trowman design to anyone and I look forward to working together on future projects.
It is such a pleasure to work with Amy Trowman. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, has great insight into what looks good and is durable for our rental property, and made suggestions for improvement that had 'WOW' impact on design. She took care of so many items for us: ordering mattresses, getting the windows measured and priced for window treatments, meeting with electricians to place light fixtures, placing towel bars, ordering furniture and light fixtures and suggesting paint colors-to name a few. Our builder and his foreman also compliment her and say how easy she is to work with. I frequently heard them say, "We discussed this with Amy and we agree that this would be best for you to do." You really can't put a price tag on that kind of 'peace of mind' feeling you get when you hear that, especially since we were building a home 500+miles away from where we live. I would recommend her to anyone.

We built a home on Isle of Palms and could not have done it without Amy Trowman Design. We live in Connecticut and the home was built without us on site. We love our home and have Amy to thank for that.
There are a number of things that stand out about Amy and her firm. We rent our 6-bedroom home and she mastered the incredible challenge of decorating a home that could withstand the wear and tear of renting, but also provide the comforts and feel of home when we are there. She managed the builder, asking hard and meaning questions, pushing back when needed and building a relationship of respect. She delivered the work on time and on budget. I have worked with a number of other interior designers and this was a first! She solved a number of challenging problems, some logistical, some design related. She is an awesome problem solver. Amy has mastered the balance of creativity and practicality with a wow factor. She is as much a businesswoman as a designer and that proved invaluable to us. She is flexible, personable, and decisive. We love sharing our home with family and friends as they are always impressed with the look and feel. It reflects the island, the current design trends, and most importantly our tastes.

Amy continues to be a wonderful asset in the complete renovation and update of a five-apartment condo regime in a 125 year old house. The loft unit was gutted to the studs and rebuilt and the other units were renovated and updated in keeping with the historic structure of the house. Amy, in addition to helping us select fixtures, colors, etc, has an "eye" for features that enhance livability. Within each respective unit, which were a little different in character, she was able to decorate each unit uniquely, but coordinated the various aspects for the entire house creating an appealing and harmonious effect. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. She anticipated our needs. Friends have been asking for the color schemes and other aspects of the interior and exterior decorating. Amy takes to account your wishes, budget, and timetable. I cannot say enough about Amy, who shops options and does not use a cookie cutter approach.

Amy is a professional in all areas. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and we can't say enough about her work. Not only does Amy have wonderful ideas, but she really listens to her client and designs ideas that work with your lifestyle and with the feeling you want to create in your home. Attention to detail is behind everything Amy does and she goes the extra mile to make sure everything is how you imagined it would be. Amy came in on time and under budget for our project and always made us feel comfortable decorating our home from a long distance, as she was here locally to handle anything and everything that came up in a very professional and confident manner. We couldn't be happier with the results!
