Hi there! I'm Amanda. Mama of three with over 17 years of designing spaces for young children. I've paid close attention to what works and what doesn't in spaces where kids are involved—and I am here to help you achieve the vision you’re dreaming of.
I believe in quality over quantity, engagement over entertainment and, simple over complicated when it comes to play spaces. I also believe that even kids' spaces should be first and foremost beautiful—while to also being functional and manageable. As parents we’ve got enough stress going on. We need spaces that serve our families simply and bring us joy.
I’m also a mama who is extremely triggered by clutter. So I’ve had to figure out ways to combat clutter, while also keeping our home functional for the whole family.
I've got a master's degree in early childhood and an interior decorator certificate in progress. I've designed and brought to life dozens of classrooms and playrooms and can't wait to help you do the same.
The Copper Nest began as Reggio/Waldorf/Montessori preschool program, and has transitioned to the site you are visiting now. Our work has changed, but our goal remains the same: to support families in giving their children ample opportunities for play-based learning. In today's fast paced world, this is more important than ever.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here!
