Amanda Sinistaj



Amanda is an adventure seeker, a self-taught artist and an accomplished Interior Designer. After working many years under an incredible mentor, Amanda branched out in February of 2012 and founded Ellwood Interiors, a company that prides itself on being both humble and versatile. She leads a motivated crew of talented interior designers in crafting beautiful, award-winning living spaces nationwide—from coast to coast.

The firm specializes in luxury jobs ranging from 3,000 square foot remodels to 20,000 square foot residential new construction projects. Her personal design philosophy starts with the clients at the heart of the project, ensuring the space reflects who they are. Her aesthetic is clean, timeless and embodies a term she calls “livable luxury”. Amanda looks after specific design duties, including AutoCAD drawings, renderings, selecting exterior and interior finishes and materials, custom detailing, and furniture sales with attentive placement of finishing touches to ensure everything is just right. Throughout the design and build process, Amanda and the Ellwood team strive to maintain transparent communication with clients, architects, builders and trades people to ensure timely, budget conscious, and successful projects.

Amanda is a graduate of Michigan State University and is the recipient of more than 20 awards for design excellence in metro Detroit. She has been featured in dozens of publications both locally and nationally, including Detroit Home, Builder Architect, and Styleline magazines. She has also been featured in newpaper editorials, radio interviews and on a Food Network kitchen renovation series.

A big believer that success starts with giving back, Amanda supports and has worked with the Michigan Parkinson’s Foundation, Make a Wish Foundation, Looking for my Sister, St. Ann’s Food Bank, Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Sweet Dreams Project, Gleaners and Forgotten Harvest, to name a few. It is a personal goal of hers to be of service to the community first.
