Amy’s Paint Effects
Do you love shopping at a big box store buying the same old same old as everyone else? Are you content with a cookie-cutter home just like every other on your block? Or are you the kind of person who isn’t afraid to venture outside the box? Do you enjoy expressing yourself through the spaces in your home? Do you love the idea of a one-of-a-kind accent wall or mural, a hand-painted furniture design, an unexpected color that really makes a room, or a complete home redo that wakes you up with a smile each day?
If you fall into this latter category (and we hope you do) you need to meet Amy Wohkinger of Amy’s Paint Effects. Amy is one of those people who’s be able to look at a humdrum room and see its limitless possibilities. Spend some time on Amy’s website at AmyFauxEffects.Houzz.com and we think you’ll have as much fun as we did, flipping through the photos of Amy’s past projects. From waking up a boring, old kitchen to gutting and reimagining a bathroom or a complete home makeover, Amy and her team want to help you fall in love with your home again.
Amy begins each project with her tools and paint brushes packed away, simply getting to know the client and listening to their vision for the space. Over the years, she’s learned the exact right questions to ask to ascertain a client’s personal taste and lifestyle, to capture their vision for a project, before making it a reality. “Everything we create is unique to a certain client,” she said. “The better we know and understand that client, the better the end result.”
Amy’s true joy comes in marrying her natural artist eye with her design knowledge to make an unloved space or forlorn piece of furniture into a cherished part of a home. Her designs aren’t so much about what’s currently “in style” but about what the client likes; what excites them. “I want to know what inspires you and what you want your home to say about you,” she said. “The need to change things—to improve things—is what really drives me.”
A proud mama of two, Amy has been awarded the Best of Houzz award for customer service, three years running. Over the past 26 years, her design firm has been chosen by more than two million homebuilding, remodeling, and design industry professionals. Whether you’re looking for a top-to-bottom reimagining of the spaces in your home or a faux-brick warehouse effect in your kitchen, an update to a tired, old fireplace, a one-of-a-kind mural, or an exciting, new finish on your kitchen cabinets, Amy and her team are ready to partner with you for a home like no other—a space you’re happy to come home to.
