I have had the pleasure of working with AMS Interiors over the past two years. I downsized from a large house with a spacious open floor plan to a residence with a smaller footprint and a more traditional layout. The new residence had been rented for several years and was in dire need of a fresh, updated look. My objective, in working with AMS Interiors, was to create a living environment that reflected our lifestyle while integrating current furniture and other collectables from our global travels.
Angela’s services included the following:
*Selection of paint colors and carpeting
*Complete redesign of the kitchen to create a more open, airy environment, leverage natural light and optimize available space
*Supervision of kitchen construction work
*Creation of floor plans to match our everyday living and entertainment needs
*Selection of new living room furniture that coordinated colors and textures with existing pieces
*Design and installation of window treatments for the entire first floor
*Purchase and placement of accessories to enhance the visual appeal of the rooms and complement the design
I can recommend Angela and AMS Interiors without reservations. Angela’s process is very fastidious. Before proceeding with any design, Angela works with you to complete a questionnaire to assure that she understands your lifestyle, how you want to use your living space, your style preferences, your “must haves” and most importantly, your budget. She is very collaborative, explains her recommendations in detail and works hard to assure that you understand your options. She listens to your feedback and concerns and adjusts her designs accordingly. She is very creative in her approach, knowledgeable about manufacturers and presents you with the highest quality options while adhering to your budget.
I consistently receive compliments on my home from family and friends, a testament to Angela’s work.

It is my pleasure to recommend Angela Souder and AMS Interiors. Angela is the constant professional. She exemplifies the perfect blend of an ever-creative, exquisite designer, with sound business skills and a consistently professional approach to her work. I had the opportunity to work along side Angela at an architecture firm where we often collaborated to create a joint architectural and interior solution for our clients. As an architect, it is rare to find an interior designer as talented as Angela who still understands the importance of blending the client’s design goals with their budgetary restraints, and can bring that level of understanding into the big picture of the overall project. Angela has a wide array of experience and would make a fantastic partner to bring to the table on any project, large or small.

My husband and I wanted to update our furniture due to our upcoming baby. We were primarily interested in a new sofa because the one we had was a hand me down and did not match our decor and was very old. Angela helped us pick a practical, attractive, and durable sofa from Kravet. She suggested we get a sofa bed since we live in Los Angeles for our family to stay when they come visit. She also suggested we get our sofa in a special teflon coating for spills. We followed Angela’s suggestions and love our sofa! Our guests have raved that it is the most comfortable sofa bed they’ve ever slept on and I’m happy we got the teflon coating because our infant son’s formula has spilled many times all over the sofa and we have cleaned it with no issue. I highly recommend Angela as an interior designer and definitely plan to use her for our future housing projects!

Angela’s prompt, organized and professional service enabled me to have the family room finished on time. She was very considerate of my budget and always kept me informed as to costs and progress with various contractors and vendors. I especially appreciated her patience and attention to detail, on both the large and small scale. As a Pennsylvania Realtor, I have every confidence in Angela’s ability and integrity, and have referred her to my clients with very successful feedback from them. I feel fortunate to have had her expertise and know when I refer her services, my clients will be very satisfied and happy.

We shared information on our lifestyle and our love of contemporary design, and looked to Angela to create an attractive yet functional area for our active family to use and enjoy. She impressed us with her vast technical ability, presenting us with floor plans, elevations and perspectives that enabled us to share her vision of how beautiful, yet functional, our home could be … From our custom cabinets to our floors to the artwork on our walls, we couldn’t be happier with the results.
