Amanda Ransom’s work is informed by a long-standing love of historic buildings, their proportions, and furnishings.
Her early design career started with roles at Soane and Melissa Wyndham Limited, both of whom are known for their work on period interiors. Prior to setting up Amanda Ransom Design, Amanda worked alongside Caroline Percy at Hotspur Design on a number of important historic properties in London and the country.
She read History of Art at university. Soon after leaving, she embarked on a career as a stockbroker, working at a number of investment banks, which proved to be a good commercial training ground. In 2008-2009, she retrained at the Inchbald School of Design, gaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Architectural Interior Design.
Amanda is an Associate Member of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) as well as a member of the Georgian Group, the Historic Houses Association, the Furniture History Society and the Wallpaper History Society. She was one of the founders of the Historic Decoration Courses that began in the Autumn of 2016 at Syon House.
