Lindsey Jamison
 Lead Designer lindsey@rumordesigns.com

While spending her early childhood in Europe, her unique exposure to her grandparents antique business in Holland combined with her parents own art collecting habits, sparked her imagination at an early age. She eventually settled in Steamboat Springs in the 70's and worked with another well known interior design firm for almost 20 years on local and national projects. She went on to create her own firm, but ultimately missed the synergy and comradery found when working as part of a team. She joined RUMOR DESIGN as a Lead Designer in 2013.

Lindsey moved with her young family of five to Steamboat in 2016 and immediately joined the Rumor team. Lindsey fell in love with design while earning her degree in education from Missouri State University. Her passions for design eventually lead her to obtain a degree from the Interior Design Institute. She enjoys working with textiles, incorporating pattern and color into each design, and loves to mix old with the new. Lindsey was the co-owner of the interior design studio MASH in Casper, WY up until moving to Steamboat and also has her yoga teacher training certification. We are lucky to have such an experienced and inspired designer on our team.
