Gates Interior Design, in Franklin, TN.

“Good design enhances your lifestyle, but intentional design enhances quality of life.”

Your home not only functions as a sanctuary, but it’s a place to create intimate relationships, build memories, foster personal growth, and be your truest self.

Your home is your refuge, a place to recharge so you’re ready to go out into the world and kick ass.

What my team and I can do for you is:

  • Help you build a beautiful, professionally designed space that you couldn’t achieve on your own
  • Help you find one-of-a-kind items that no one else has, but makes your heart sing
  • Get you to a point where you truly enjoy your space, and makes you proud to entertain
  • Create a home that literally heals your mind, body, and soul, and rejuvenates you and your family 
  • Give you a home that feels amazing

It’s time to make your home work with you rather than against you.

Design Education

Amanda is a professionally trained Interior Designer, and Feng Shui Practitioner. She has been in the field of interior design and Feng Shui for over seventeen years. During college she studied BTB Feng Shui a practice taught by his holiness, Professor Lin Yun. This journey gave her a deeper appreciation for feng shui principles, and the true meaning of intentional placement when designing a home.

The Design Practice: Intentional Services

We offer luxury Interior design, and Feng Shui. My goal is to deliver exceptional service to satisfy your home needs while giving you a more integrated approach so you achieve a Happy, Healthy, Home™


I work with homeowners who want to create happy, healthy, homes™ through intentional, integrative design. Sure, you can say all design is intentional is some respect, but I approach my design with ancient Feng Shui principles in mind. My goal with everyone I work with is to create spaces that have a killer cool vibe, takes your home beyond your wildest dreams, and gives you the wow factor you could never achieve on your own, all while creating an environment that promotes optimal health and well-being for you. As a leader in the world of integrative design, I design spaces that feel as good as they look. Why is this beneficial?

  • It harnesses your personal vibe showing off who you are, not your neighbors or friends
  • Customizing your space to create a vibe that feels awesome and looks amazing
  • Increased productivity, so you can get stuff done efficiently
  • Ease and grace throughout your daily life, to help you avoid those crazy hectic moments
  • Uplifted, and beautiful home with WOW factor that makes you think, “I can’t believe this is my home!”
  • Supportive to health, wealth and over all well-being

As Karen Rauch Carter stated in her recent course, ” it’s about adapting spaces with it’s occupants through cosmic breath.” As a designer, I connect the mind, body and spirit of your home with that of you and your family, taking your design preferences, and family needs and create a space that up levels you, the design and the space to a place you never knew existed.


Many of us crave for something more meaningful in our lives. Whether it’s love, money, better family ties, peace in our career – whatever “it” is, it can be fixed through beautiful design, and Feng Shui. I’m talking real actions to change the vibe and feeling in your home to help you achieve real results. A way of creating environments that are decorated to support you, uplift you and bring more balance into your life. My mission is to take what you already have, add to it, enhance it and simply make it better. This is design on an energetic level tailored specifically to you, your needs, and your desires. My team and I want to help you create a space that restores you and encapsulates you into pure bliss so you live a life with purpose.




What the heck is decorating with intention and what does it mean for you?  Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical practice of harmonizing and balancing the human existence with the surrounding environment. In layman’s terms, it’s practical advise on how to arrange your home to help you gain balance and better well-being for you and your family. That means that I come from an approach that works to make you feel the best you can in your space, by placing your items in a manner that brings about more peace. I want to bring the right energy into your home, so it is a place of serenity and tranquility where you feel and live your best life.

Are you ready for a transformation? Whether you choose to adopt the belief of decorating with intention or not, all homes have an energetic vibe. I myself have been in homes that felt like a warm hug and they kept me coming back for more. I’ve also been in homes that felt so thick with unease and anxiety I never returned again. All of us are surrounded by subtle energies, and just like your favorite song makes you want to sing and dance, a well decorated home that lifts that subtle energy will not only make you want to sing and dance, but you may find yourself happier and more focused than you’ve ever been before. What do you have to lose? Are you ready to transform your life and have a home that feels like a warm hug? Contact us today and let us help you heal your space, lift your mood and attract all that you desire. xoxo, Amanda
