Lindsay Matenaer | Associate, Interior designER

Working on commercial and residential projects at NewStudio allows me to collaborate with architects, designers, vendors, and clients to create inviting, useful, and aesthetically appropriate interiors. Complexity especially appeals to me. My background in design, drafting, and graphics infuses my work with a blend of fresh creativity and detailed organization.

I’ve been thinking about design since elementary school. Growing up in a creative family encouraged me to explore options. I started with fashion designs, following my grandmother’s lead; I had my first sewing machine at age ten. Eventually I shifted to interior design and it’s the perfect place for me.

Favorite Office Supplies:
Colored pencils—lots and lots of colors!

What Most People Don’t Know About Me:

What Makes NewStudio A Great Workplace:
The talented and creative personalities here are inspiring to be around

Someday I Will:
Design my own place on a beach somewhere (beach location TBD)

When I’m Not At NewStudio, I Am:
I’m walking my shih tzu, Holly (named because she was a Christmas present)
