About Hollie

Hollie Gyarmati is a designer, author, and National Ambassador for Design For A Difference, the first-ever community-driven design movement that gives makeovers to charities in need. Since 2014, she has made appearances as a panelist at numerous conferences, has been featured in Design For A Difference promo videos and media, and has been active in multiple charity makeovers at both national and local levels.

As a writer, she has most recently lent her voice to several campaigns in the upscale design space, and also Revealed, the official Design For A Difference blog. (designforadifference.com)

Attributing her creative talents to her Flemish roots, Hollie embraced her love for design and makeovers at age 7, when she spent an entire Saturday de-cluttering and rearranging her best friend’s bedroom in lieu of a backyard filled with kids and kickball.

She is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Central Michigan University and received recognition for her design portfolio from the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), ranking among the top three in the state. She went on to pursue her dream career as a residential designer for the once prestigious Dayton Hudson’s Marshall Field’s Corp, where she thrived on creating dream spaces while building long-lasting relationships with her clients.

Today, Hollie is the publisher of #MakingBusyBeautiful, and after cultivating her unparalleled skills as the “get it done in style” stay at home mom and entrepreneur, has made it her mission to teach her “less is more” approach to create simple, stylish, and practical lifestyles for perpetually busy, high performance women.

She lives with her husband and five children in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
