ESD Interiors is built on a foundation of authentic relationships and a passion for the creative. Keri Malafa and Amanda Waltz are the firm’s managing partners—but they’re also great friends who believe in creating inspiring spaces, homes and offices. Their own friendship and business partnership is a reflection of the way they work with every ESD Interiors client: with creativity, mutual respect, and a passion for self-expression.
Keri originally launched ESD Interiors in 2011 under the name East Street Design. The company was the outcome of a lifelong appreciation for beautiful furniture and spaces. ESD has evolved organically into a full service interior design and construction management firm which Keri built from her passion, knowledge, and true integrity. Her ability to see the big picture has enabled her to look at a space and see its overall potential; and her eye for color usage allows a space to be enhanced yet still functional, comfortable and inviting. She has developed a special talent for utilizing and making suggestions to floorpans that maximize the footprint of any space. Her suggestions always strive to achieve the greatest functionality and add lasting value to any home or business.
In 2015 it was clear that Cincinnati was embracing ESD’s approach. To sustain ESD’s rapid growth, the business needed an interior design partner who also understood business operations in order to continue offering each client a customized, personalized approach. Details matter, and Amanda Waltz has a amazing eye for interior design and styling details. Her approach perfectly compliments Keri’s visualization of the large picture. By joining ESD as a full managing partner, Amanda has realized a life long dream to live creatively, while still bringing a wealth of business operations management to ESD. Amanda has supported Keri’s business from its inception and has served as a sounding board for Keri’s ideas and designs. Combined with her natural artistic talent, Amanda offers clients a different perspective on their design needs – helping to reinvent spaces using bold pieces, fabrics, and features. Together, their combined approach to design offers ESD clients the complete package.
