Meet the Designers
Kristen started Minnesota Home Interiors in 2018 after seeing a need for a full-service staging and interior design company in Central Minnesota. With a background in sales, marketing and accounting, she has the makings of a business owner. Her training in art and design have given her the foundation necessary to transform spaces.
Kristen has the inherent ability to look at an empty room and envision the possibilities. She approaches each staging and design job as a challenge to showcase the space to its highest potential. No two spaces are ever the same and she injects unique and unexpected elements into every design.
Her personal style is all things modern, but she appreciates the foundations of classic design. Although her favorite color is black, she loves to use color when staging or working on projects for clients.
Kristen and her husband Andy, who owns a remodeling company (Minnesota Home Improvements) in St Joseph, love working on client projects together. In their spare time, you can usually find them working on projects at their own home in Sartell, with their kiddos and their dog Jack trailing behind.
A self-diagnosed décor addict and blue & white enthusiast, Amy’s passion for interior design began at a young age. Always ready to tromp through open houses, dreaming of floor plans & renovation projects, clipping inspiration from magazines and hoarding paint chips.
Over the years, Amy’s clients have spanned industries from beauty, fashion and event planning to interior styling and home décor, where her true passion lies.
With a keen eye for detail, color, and planning, she loves mixing modern and fresh with inviting and traditional. Amy strives to create dynamic spaces that reflect both the client’s needs and tell her clients stories. Every project is about creating a home filled with surprising, thoughtful spaces while practicing a lifestyle approach to design.
When Amy isn’t dreaming of beautiful interiors, she can be found chasing around her three adorable daughters with her husband.
Alison has always had the core elements of design in her being. She believes this comes from her mom who herself has always had a flare for interior design. Color, texture, and balance of organic and manufactured items creates such a richness in all our lives. She loves dwelling in her home, it is her heart and a place where she finds peace and serenity. Her Midwest upbringing has given her deep roots while spurring her to want to experience the unknown in design and travel, which to her, go hand and hand.
Alison has been a personal hair stylist to her clients for many years behind the salon chair and is now branching out into home styling and design. She absolutely loves transforming a home with staging and knows it is a true success if she wants to linger in the space when it is all finished. In design, she loves selecting color, furniture and accessories that creates a lovely space that fells luxurious to the client, within any budget. She also enjoys the challenge of working through space issues by getting creative and reimaging what is possible, whether it be a closet or a living room. She does her best to exceed her client’s expectations and guide them through their dream project, whatever that may be.
Alison and her husband are building their second home; on the water in Cold Spring. They love to travel and try new experiences, but they equally love spending time at home with their two cats, that they love to pieces.

“Kristen helped stage a home we had on the market for at least 6 months. The house then sold within a few weeks when we re-listed after staging! They did a wonderful job helping potential buyers picture themselves in the house. Not only did the house sell, but Kristen was so easy to work with and on top of every single detail. Highly recommend.”
“I highly recommend this company and Kristen. I initially hired her to stage my home to sell and it sold within 1 day! I also hired her for a color consultation for my new house and she did amazing! Not only did she help pick gorgeous colors, she did a great job explaining why some of my original color picks would not work very well. She is friendly, responds quickly, and is very professional.“
