I love houses and am fascinated by how we live in them.
Having spent years renovating seven of my own houses and recently completing building our new home, I can appreciate how stressful and time consuming the process can be. My greatest wish is to develop happy, long and trusted relationships with my clients.
With a diploma in Interior Design and qualifications from The Regent Academy in London, I have been practicing interior design in NZ and the UK since 1999. I am a member of The Interior Design Guild, NZ.

Amanda was amazing in helping us modernise our home in the Waikato. I had ideas, but they were all over the place. Amanda helped me focus on what areas of the house to concentrate on, and how to achieve a timeless and stylish look. Her design flair and knowledge, her ability to see how we as a family work, the way she incorporated what objects/art we already had in the house, and the way she integrated those made the house look the way it does today. The photo shows a part of her design flair. We are so stoked with the results. Thank you Amanda.

Amanda from Blackwood interiors is incredibly talented, she has a natural ability with people and somehow creates spaces that are stunning and innovative but which relate perfectly to the individual she is working with.
One of her greatest strengths is that she is thoroughly researched and uses her years of experience to really benefit her clients.
I have loved working with her in my capacity as a lighting retailer...She is always professional, gracious under pressure and completely customer focused.
You will definitely love the finished result and I HIGHLY recommend Blackwood Interiors.

"We have really enjoyed working with Amanda from Blackwood Interiors on our new home build. When we started our project, it seemed such a daunting task to think of all the colours and options we could have, but Amanda made the whole process a lot easier and less stressful. She really took the time to understand our requirements up front and continued to work in partnership with us to come up with great ideas. Amanda’s flexible design service options, meant we were able to tailor a package that was right for us and value for money. Amanda’s passion for colour and her ability to tie together different colours and textures was a real asset throughout the entire process and we’re sure saved from a huge headache along the way! We would not hesitate to call on Amanda again and recommend her to anyone looking for a great eye for colour and a passion to turn your ideas into reality."

I had the very good fortune of happening upon Amanda Gow over a decade ago when I was doing refurbishment work on a house we owned.
Since then I have used her expertise several more times. I would always seek her advice.....insight.....inspiration for any work I've done, either large or small as I trust her completely and have always loved the result.
She has a great eye, great flair, is totally passionate about her craft and 100% reliable. Plus she's great fun.
I look forward to many more projects with Amanda.
