During a workshop
Amy: What made you decide to start your own business?
Julie: There were no furniture and design shops in Helena that represented great lines that offered both design and furniture. It seemed like the right time, so we opened in 2003 and have continued to grow and offer products and services to customers and design enthusiast in our area
A: What is your company motto?
J: "Fine homes and lifestyles". We believe in design and furniture that compliments a persons home and the way they live.
A:What do you love about having a store?
J: I love seeing people excited about the beauty of good design and well made upholstery and case- goods. It really does revolutionize a person's life to see what their space looks like when it has been thoughtfully designed. Often, a certain piece or splash of color does not occur to a person as a viable option until they see it in their home.
A: What is your favorite AHAH product? color?
J: We love it all but right now we are really loving Silver Leaf & Gold Leaf. We are so blessed to live in Montana just minutes from the Continental Divide. Wildlife is abundant in our area so one of our favorite things to do is to guild shed antlers in gold and silver and use them in our design. You can tuck them in just about anywhere. A bit of Montana without being cliche.
A: What sets you apart from other stores in your area?
J: First and foremost is our level of expertise and commitment to our clients. We strive to make the design experience comfortable and fun. We also offer a lineup of furniture that cannot be found in at least 100 miles. By committing to Amy Howard at Home™ , we believe we have taken yet another step away from our competition by offering a product line that our clients can imagine, get their hands dirty and finally, have a piece that they have done themselves that is beautiful and compliments their home.
A: I cant live without my...
J: I cannot live without my family, friends and faith.
A: What is your favorite season?
J: Without question, my favorite time of the year is Fall. I cannot wait to start nesting, bringing in the outside with arrangements of fall color and texture.
Its a time to spend with family, friends, good food and to reflect on the past and look forward the future.
A: What is your aesthetic in 3 words?
J: INSPIRING, CLASSIC, BALANCED.
**Their next AHAH workshop is a BYOP (bring your own piece) scheduled for September 13th! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
