Listen to this episode

As one of the Southeast’s leading interior designers, Amy Vermillion believes strongly in the collaborative relationship between client and designer. “My function as a design professional is to create, suggest and gently guide my client through the process. I take every aspect of my client’s lifestyle and individual taste into consideration when working on their project. My goal is to have a client who loves their surroundings and who regards my involvement as essential.”


Amy is known to have an eye for detail that makes the interiors she designs unique and fresh. An expert with color, texture and scale, she not only chooses exquisite fabrics and furnishings but has the innate ability to edit her client’s existing interiors in a thoughtful manner. Drawing on her background, education and world travel, Amy feels equally at ease designing traditional or modern interiors and uses that inspiration to create beautiful, layered spaces.


Recently Amy has been sought for her unique approach regarding home renovation by focusing on architectural finishes with customized details. She believes in putting together a strong team of craftspeople who are collectively interested in the best outcome for the client and work together for exquisite results. From concept through construction and furnishing, her boutique design firm is gaining a reputation as the complete design solution


Whether she is working on a residential interior or private jet design, Amy attributes her success to meticulous attention to detail, a close designer-client relationship and personalized service. Her work and expertise have been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Stark Carpet’s beautiful book, Decorating with Carpets, Charlotte Magazine, Southpark Magazine and Charlotte Home & Garden Magazine among others. She is an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design from Illinois State University.


Before moving to Charlotte in 1995, Amy worked for two prestigious design firms on Chicago’s North Shore. Her background includes custom furniture design, high end kitchen and bath design and full scale renovation projects. Currently

Amy is working on residential, private aviation and commercial projects for her clients in Charlotte and across the country.


Outside of her busy design practice, Amy is a member of the Junior League of Charlotte, the Mint Museum and the Daniel Stowe Botanic Garden. When she isn’t working with clients, Amy enjoys shooting sporting clay, traveling and gardening.
