Amanda 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.
She currently resides in Charlestown, MA with her husband, Jason, and their cat, Margarita.
Emily is our Creative Director. She is really cool and fun and sometimes she dresses like a state senator. Emily lives in Charlestown with her husband, Kevin, and their French Bulldog, Freddie.
Lauren is our Weekend Operations Officer - you can catch her running the show on Sundays. Lauren lives in Wakefield and is really tall.
