PHILOSOPHY

Yves Saint Laurent once said, Fashion fades, style is eternal. A declaration that trendy and classic can, and do, co-exist. Without one there would not be the other. There are immeasurable merits to both. It’s a delicately nuanced statement that gives pause and prompts introspection.

This perspective shapes every interior we create resulting in experiences that embolden, enrich and endure. Extensions of a personality, a way of life. From hotel, to home, our interiors allure with a magnetism not to be forgotten.

Upon graduation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Interior Design, Andrea relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in hospitality. She quickly joined the team of a notable design firm and was immersed into the world of hotel and resort interior design. Shortly thereafter, Andrea met fellow designer Ashley Justman, and quickly recognized their shared entrepreneurial intentions and passion for design. Each went on to gain additional experience, with Andrea landing at a prominent design firm specializing in casino and hospitality venues.

In 2009, Andrea and Ashley established Avenue Interior Design focusing on boutique hotel and restaurant design. Within months, they had secured pivotal scopes of work, setting the studio into motion and laying the foundation for all projects to follow.
