Design Lotus and Design Retake aim to create passionate products for women who don’t take themselves too seriously, want inspired and beautiful design around them, but certainly don’t want to break the bank. The Design Lotus and Design Retake brands provide simple, approachable, and happy design solutions for your home and stationery needs. A neutral sensibility towards design is key in their approach — this seamlessly flows with any design personality and style to add an air of ease to all you do.

Hello There! I’m Amy Ehmann - designer (stationery and interior), avid DIYer, decor hoarder, Christ-follower. I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband and three kiddos. I am the creative side of both Design Lotus and Design Retake. I’ve been designing for 16+ years. You can find a range of my work minted.com. I try to keep my design timeless with a fresh twist. 

Over the last few years, I’ve been able to explore my passion for DIY, decor and home renovations. I hope to share my experiences with you - the good, the bad, and the ugly (pretty). My ultimate dream would be to flip homes - where I could be involved in the transformation process of a home from start to finish. 

I am Tina Furjanic and I am blessed to be a part of Design Lotus and Design Retake on the business side of things. I worked in the corporate world for many years playing the administrative and managerial roles. But then my mind really got blown when I became a wife and mom of two. Now I get to meld my corporate experiences with my home experiences, while working with the sweetest friend. I live in the Washington, D.C. area with my macho husband AJ (the kind of man you want around in case of a zombie apocalypse) and my funny and energetic kids Andrew and Keira. We also have 3 German Shepherds and a cat because we like to live on the edge.
