Amanda Mitchell started Place & Gather in 2016 as a way to mix her love of interior design with need to celebrate the everyday.
People constantly asked Amanda to redecorate spaces in their home and often asked for her input on home design. Amanda decided to put those ideas to work and launched a business that started with her favorite space, putting the finishing touches on the table. Her love of color, texture and patterns leaves spaces Amanda decorates to look polished and inviting.
Amanda’s style combines all of the places she has lived. She mixes her love of southern style with Preppy Boston Chic.
Spending nearly a decade as an inner city school teacher, Amanda still has her hand in helping students but has decided to pursue this passion full time.
In 2018, Amanda got the opportunity to carry on the legacy of the Bunker Hill Florist and their 37 years in Charlestown when owners Larry and Joe decided to retire. The florist, now named Junebug, is situated on historic Main Street and is less than half a mile from Place & Gather, making the ideal stroll through Charlestown!
Amanda currently resides in Charlestown, MA with her husband and her cat Margarita.
