An Interview with Amy Pottenger with Refresh Design


How would you describe your design style? 

I would describe my design style as warm, modern, family friendly, and practical luxury.


What design services do you offer? 

Refresh Design offers everything from full service design, to online design consultations, and we’re even working on an online course to release in 2021. 


Where do you find your inspiration?

People. My clients inspire me, it’s my goal to create spaces that are a haven from the crazy world, spaces that allow them to be renewed while they spend time in their homes, to connect with those they love most, and to give my clients homes that are a beautiful, functional backdrop to the rest of their life as they share their gifts with the world. Home should empower you, fill you up and not stress you out! 


What builders and architects do you work with?

We love our local builders and architects and continue to work with many great people. There is so much talent in West Michigan!
