About Casey St. John Interiors

Since 2013, we’ve made it our mission to collaborate with clients to design functional, timeless and beautiful spaces that last a lifetime. From waterside retreats and urban townhouses to reimagined remodels and new builds, we’re passionate about creating spaces that complement their natural surroundings—not compete with them.


Our team is comprised of three principals who share a passion for interior design, family, travel and building long-lasting, meaningful relationships. With over 35 years of combined experience in the design field—plus extensive work in architecture, fabrics, furniture and art selection—Amy Casey, Courtney St. John and Joanne Brutsch are dedicated to creating innovative interiors that reflect the individual personalities and signature styles of each client.



One thing I can’t live without is…unfortunately, I would have to say that these days I have to have my laptop to “make life go"… and of course my children, Sam and Ruthie. 

To me, great design is… Timeless, thoughtful, and uncluttered. 

My dream home includes… Lots of windows, original art, and great lighting.

When not designing homes, you can find me… watching my kids’ soccer games, hiking the local trails with my dog, skiing,  planning the next family vacation
