Amanda McLennan, Principle Owner Visionary & Designer
Growing up on the other side of the ocean, Amanda spent her early days surrounded by the Scottish countryside. Inspired from an early age with great architectural masterpieces she was bound to art and design. Moving to Canada to start a new adventure she attended Seneca College, graduating in Graphic Art Design, then later applying to the Art Foundation & Design program at George Brown College.

Kristi Lee Robb, Senior Designer & Project Manager
Meet the company’s AutoCad wiz! Kristi Lee will layout your house or room with precision. She graduated from Sheridan College with an Advanced Diploma in Interior Design. From there she moved to Toronto where she worked for 10 years under one of Toronto’s top design firms, gaining industry experience and creating lasting contacts in the trade. She believes in creating beautiful, functional spaces that are personal to each individual client. She moved back to her hometown of Bracebridge with her husband so they could raise their son with the same childhood adventures they had. When she is not drafting on the computer, you can find her either practicing yoga, enjoying the outdoors with her family,
eating way too much chocolate, or enjoying a mystery novel
snuggled with her cat.
PATTI SPICER, INTERIOR STYLIST
During her last year of highschool, Patti’s love of art and design flourished. Eager to consume everything it had to offer her, she enrolled in various post secondary education programs to further her knowledge and love of the subject. She attended Banff School of Fine Arts, Humber College for Interior Design and George Brown College for Graphic Arts. In the time that followed she spent many years in the industry, working at an Advertising Agency, then as an Interior Designer at a Commercial Fabric Design House. When she moved to California, she studied Ceramic Design at a City College. After 4 years, she returned to Toronto and decided to move to her beloved Muskoka, where her family has owned a cottage since she was a child. Working for local design establishments, she found her passion for merchandising, organizing and styling. When Patti is not helping clients at Red Bean, she loves sourcing and restoring furniture finds. She also enjoys being outdoors snowshoeing, downhill skiing, swimming and hiking in beautiful Muskoka.
