Amanda Malson of Domicile has worked as an interior designer within the high-end residential and hospitality design fields in both San Francisco and Los Angeles for the last eleven years. Her experience has included overseeing the design and management of several multimillion-dollar projects and a position at the Los Angeles based design firm KWID where she gained valuable boutique hotel experience.
