Welcome to Rust and Ruffles

Rust and Ruffles is the collection of my inspirations, designs, DIY projects, delicious food, and weddings. My name is Amanda, I’m an interior designer in a small town near Lake Tahoe, CA.

As my dad likes to say, “I’m a mixture of pink tutus and dirtbike boots,” at least when I was young enough to still pull off tutus (stolen from his Father of the Bride speech at my wedding, Thanks Dad!) Anyway, I feel like that is perfect representation of who I am.

I love a beautifully elegant fabric, chandeliers dripping with crystals, and paisley patterns, but I also love to camp and ride snowmobiles. It’s a fine and blurry line, but I feel like I’m navigating it.

So that’s what this blog is about, the balance between beautiful and functional, feminine and masculine, glamorous and rustic. Enjoy!
