I am a licensed Interior Designer with my NCIDQ certification. I have worked on residential and commercial design projects since 2003. I hold a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Interior Architecture from Columbia College Chicago (2005) and completed a Foundation of Art and Design at Bradford College in England. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in European Studies from Seattle Pacific University.

Prior to founding Amanda Miller Design Studio in 2010, I worked designing corporate office spaces, restaurants and outdoor environments for OWP/P Architects, Aria Group Architects and McDonald's US Restaurant Design.

Native to Michigan, I have lived in Oak Park since 2005. I am married and have 2 daughters.


Melissa NutiMelissa Nuti

Melissa Nuti joined AMDS in 2015. She holds a BFA in Interior Architecture from Columbia College Chicago. Born and raised in Dubuque IA, Melissa now lives and works here in Oak Park. Her flair for details, genuine warmth, willingness to learn anything and contagious enthusiasm continue to define her design work. Melissa was a key player in developing the Nurture by Design program and believes that good design is a great way to improve people's lives. Favorite projects to date include: an outdoor seating environment for an Oak Park family and design details to complete a new Tudor style home in River Forest. A self proclaimed "casual nerd", Melissa spends her time outside of the studio visiting renaissance faires and the like. We love having Melissa on the team.

Brittani AnselmoBrittani Anselmo

Senior Designer

Brittani joined Amanda Miller Design Studio in 2013. She is a graduate of the Columbia College BFA in Interior Architecture program. Brittani shines with unwavering enthusiasm, remarkable talent and attention to detail. Although Brittani loves working with materials and finishes, her true gift lies in uncovering the home or business owner's passion for their environment and using this to help shape their unique design. Raised in the Western Suburbs, Brittani is an avid White Sox fan. Anytime she is not here designing, she is likely partaking in a large and loving family gathering. Without Brittani, AMDS would not be AMDS!

She holds Bachelor of Science degrees in both Business Administration from Miami University in OH and Interior Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Originally from Fort Wayne IN, Allison, her husband and two children now call Oak Park home. Allison gravitated towards Interior Design as a way to mesh her analytical and creative instincts. As such, she brings thoughtful consideration and a willingness to learn to every job. Out of all the projects that Allison has supported to date, her favorites have been the Dengeon project in South East Oak Park and involvement in the project management of larger, more complex jobs with layers of construction and finish/furnishings in Chicago and Oak Park.
