Amanda Mersereau NCIDQ

As an Interior Designer at PCA, Amanda is ever inspired by the mix of beauty, practicality and sustainability that comes with creating the next great place.

  • I’m from  Manchester, NH.

  • My education  BSc, Interior Design, Endicott College

  • Why PCA?  PCA values collaboration and culture within the firm and that’s something that I am excited to be a part of every day. In addition, there are so many opportunities to further grow and educate myself as a designer at PCA, as well as opportunities to grow within the firm, and that is really encouraging as a young designer.

  • My earliest design memory  When I was about 5 years old, my dad got a free trial version of The Sims, and I would play it all the time. When I had used up my time limit on the computer, I would draw up floor plans and elevations for the house I would build the next time I could play.

  • Materials that excite me are  beautiful, innovative, sustainable and budget-conscious!

  • I’m inspired by  art, music, food, people, travel, books — inspiration is everywhere!

  • On Saturday mornings, you can usually find me  at home making a big breakfast and drinking a lot of coffee before heading out for a long walk with my dog, Murphy.

  • Cats or dogs?  I would adopt all the dogs if I could!

  • Coffee or tea?  Coffee — specifically, strong pumpkin spice with a splash of vanilla soy milk

  • SketchUp or Revit?  Revit all day, every day. I love putting construction documents together.

  • On my playlist  Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, Hozier, Vance Joy, Bon Iver and anything from a summer hits of the '90s playlist

  • One thing most people don’t know about me  I danced competitively from the age of 5 through college.
