Los Altos native Amy Fischer’s vision is getting a little bigger.

Fischer, owner of Spectrum Interior Design Inc. at 425 First St., announced in early June the expansion of her company’s services that aim to “encompass every facet of design, from blueprint review through finishing touches.”

Fischer expanded her interior design business to offer added convenience to busy Silicon Valley clients. She noted that she’s created a multifaceted operation featuring dual design divisions: construction-related services for new homes and remodels and a separate one for interior furnishings and holiday decoration procurement and installations.

Fischer’s offerings include a design resource library that allows clients to choose various tiles, fabrics and other elements essential to completing their home. The emphasis, she noted, is on satisfying full-service needs in one stop. She called her company’s design library “the best of the Bay Area.”

“I’ve always wanted to do the absolute full service – that’s why I called it ‘Spectrum,’” said Fischer, who grew up in Los Altos and had visions of starting her own company while operating an interior design division for Owen Signature Homes several years ago.

Fischer realized her goal approximately two years ago, opening the doors to Spectrum Interior Design in April 2012. Not long after, the company outgrew its single suite on the first floor at 425 First St. She soon added a second suite to meet the needs of her growing company and staff, and later a third – leading to her current expansion efforts.

“I outgrew our space in three months. … It was something I wasn’t anticipating,” said Fischer, previously featured in the April 18, 2012, edition of the Town Crier.

She added that the expansion includes adding a face familiar to some Los Altos residents, Debi Campbell. Campbell, who has a keen interest in home decoration, was named the company’s procurement director and is currently transitioning from her role with Los Altos home decor store Cover Story.

Fischer said Campbell is a natural fit for her company, noting that she’s worked with her for several years procuring items for her clients.

“She understands my vision and attention to detail in terms of decorations. … It’s the fine touches that culminate an installation,” Fischer said of Campbell.

As for Fischer, she noted that despite her company’s success, she’s not taking anything for granted. She continues to appreciate the ability to accomplish her goals in a place she’s called home since childhood.

“We’re here, we’re local and we’re here to stay,” she said. “I’m too invested with my childhood dream to go anywhere else.”
