Interior design looks fun on TV, but can be overwhelming in reality. See how one local design firm aims to make it an effortless and enjoyable experience with results you’ll love for years to come.

Amy Holt spent years working as a kitchen and bath designer, but she also had a burning desire to pursue interior design. After getting her name out in the industry, winning awards in local home shows, and building a brand of her own, she launched Designs on Madison, an award-winning interior design firm based in Cincinnati.

“Designs on Madison is home to nine talented designers with a kaleidoscope of styles and years of experience, and provides residential and commercial interior design including kitchen and bath design,” says Office Manager Lauren Olthaus. 

Olthaus says that Holt opened Designs on Madison to continue to offer clients a design process that is both effortless and enjoyable.

“With a variety of designers, our clients can be placed with someone who reflects their style,” she says. 

Designs on Madison recently celebrated its 9th year in business and moved from a studio in O’Bryonville to a historic home in East Walnut Hills.

The firm is looking forward to the future as they will continue to offer clients a unique variety of designers who specialize in different areas from new home construction to interior design to kitchen and bath design. 

“We are able to provide multiple services and also sell items from custom furniture and window treatments, to area rugs and accessories,” says Olthaus.

Olthaus says Designs on Madison is currently prepping for Citirama 2019 in September and will also be a part of the HBA’s Demo Home. “We are also starting designs and plans for Homearama 2020,” she adds.
