Top Design Season 2: Getting to know Andrea Schroder

BravoTV’s interior design reality show Top Design Season 2 premiers on September 3rd. I’ll be doing the bulk of my blogging on the show over at Blogging Top Design but wanted to showcase the designers portfolios here, as I’ve done for other reality show contestants. This season’s designers look to be a pretty talented bunch.

Let’s get to know Andrea Schroder, 36. Originally from Calgary, Andrea now lives in Santa Monica with her husband Ricky (yes, THAT Ricky Schroder – they’ve been married since she was 18. Smart girl – locked him in young!) and their four kids.

Andrea approaches design thinking of the big picture — the whole property, the whole house, the whole room. She believes that spaces need to function, make sense, and be inviting and comfortable. Blessed with an innate eye for beauty and with a combination of education and over 15 years of personal and professional experience, Andrea is primarily focused on design as it pertains to real estate and development. At 36, she has built and sold over 15 custom homes, as well as remodeled residential and commercial real estate including two movie theaters, and a historical building with loft apartments, a barn and more. Andrea has also helped creatively on several movie and music video sets. She is the owner of a real estate development and design company, Schroder Development, and is currently working on the development of a large lifestyle neighborhood in Western Colorado, in addition to other projects. Andrea is an avid gardener, homemaker, and belongs to various charities supporting children including Child Help USA.

I think her website is still a bit of a work in progress as far as portfolio images are concerned.
