Our Team


Amanda Nguyen: Interior Designer

Amanda has been working under Wendy since 2011, when Everything Home first came to be. She began her design journey as an intern with Heartwood Custom Homes & Everything Home while completing her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design at Ball State University. Following graduation, she became Wendy’s design assistant, her right hand gal, and has now become a full time designer on staff.

She has a keen eye for space planning and defining room arrangements that work just right—because who are we kidding—functionality is just as important as aesthetic. Her designs often reflect blending old treasures with new trends–as there is nothing like bringing new life to things from our past. She tends to gravitate towards soft, natural, neutral palettes and enjoys adding splashes of unexpected color in room accents. Additionally, Amanda has an absolute love for textiles and wall coverings —their patterns, textures, and handing, often add that finishing layer to the room.


Theresa Sherley: Interior Designer

Theresa Sherley has been in the interior design industry for over 17 years. Theresa’s passion started at an early age growing up in a century old home with lots of detail. Theresa has developed a keen eye for creating awe-inspiring surroundings. Theresa is also adept in finding creative ways to help budget-conscious clients design their dream spaces.

In her spare time she enjoys camping in her vintage Airstream camper, or driving around in her vintage VW beetle.


Lori Lauer: Interior Designer

Lori brings a wealth of experience through her diverse design background. She has worked successfully in all aspects of the business — including manufacturers rep, buyer and merchandiser for a large Indianapolis family owned furnishings & decor retailer and more recently at Artichoke Design Firm and her own independent design firm.

She has a proven record for creating lasting client relationships and wonderfully designed spaces. Lori is a long term resident of the Westfield/Carmel area having worked and raised her family here.


Ellen Firn: Interior Designer

Ellen Firn has 15 years of experience in the design industry, including with several of the top design/build companies in the Midwest. She loves combining built-in elements with soft goods and textiles. Her expertise is in translating her client’s preferences into inspired, well-thought-out designs. She wants her clients to know that working with a designer can be a fun and easy experience.

In her spare time, she enjoys hospitality, spending time with her family, as well as playing sports and getting out in nature.


Amy Thammavong: Design Assistant

Amy began her design journey as an intern at Everything Home while completing her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design at The Art Institute of Indianapolis in June of 2016. Following graduation, she joined the Everything Home team as an Assistant Designer.

While Amy is a recent graduate, she contributes daily to the team by bringing about newly innovated, modern and classic designs with a fresh pair of eyes and passion for design.


Amy Humes: Business Manager, Client Relations

Amy keeps the office running smoothly with her attentive correspondence, genuine helpfulness, scheduling skills, and inspiring Everything Home team spirit.

When she’s not taking care of clients she spends her free time with family, volunteering for local charities, or crafting her latest hobby obsession. At the end of a long day she can be found chilling out on the couch with a movie playing.

Amy’s ideal travel destination is Europe, because she loves the extensive history and swooning over the gorgeous architecture. At home, she’s really digging farmhouse fashion, true to her country farm-raised roots. You may spot her around Indy shopping at Allisonville Nursery, or enjoying delicious bites at Cooper’s Hawk or Ruth’s Chris—her favorites!

Outdated and out-of-scale accessories are a big design pet peeve for Amy, while nature is her biggest inspiration. When it comes to interior design, she’s all about texture! Amy takes pride in supporting the Everything Home team because she feels an investment in professional design far out weighs the monetary mistakes that can result from a lack of planning.
