Growing up in an old farmhouse in upstate New York, Amy Ward first learned about transforming spaces from her Mom, who often brought out the tools and tore down walls whenever her Dad was called out of town on business. These beautiful new, light filled spaces were the canvas of her childhood. Unfortunately, the architecture school at Cornell University was considered “out-of-state,” so she pursued her other passions and obtained a B.S. in Natural Resource Management instead. A teammate from her ski team convinced her to move to Telluride in the late ‘90s and shortly thereafter Amy met her future husband, and furniture designer, Andy Ward.
Ultimately, being exposed to the Telluride design scene through Andy’s business made Amy realize that she wanted to be part of the design world. She returned to school at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and obtained a M.A. in Interior Architecture. Her designs focus on creating beautiful, timeless, light-filled spaces that work for their inhabitants, and the lives they want to live in them.
When Amy is not in the office she enjoys chasing her husband, two teenagers and goofy golden retriever around the mountains on foot, bicycle, skis or watercraft. Off-seasons find her filling traveling to exotic locales to find windy shores for kite-boarding, spicy food and practicing her terrible Spanish.
