COURTNEY MARKOFF

OWNER

I am founder and owner of this unique company called Clover Designs. It is my mission to be a design firm that is different from all the others. Different in that our highest value is to design specifically with our client’s style in mind. That means we really listen to what our clients like and love versus pushing our own style on them. Yes, we design and transform beautiful homes, but only because creating spaces our clients love is our passion.  

While creativity is in my blood, I have a somewhat non-traditional design background. Like Joanna Gaines, my formal education is in communication and I am an entrepreneur through and through.  Clover Designs is one of the many businesses that I have launched and, so far, is my absolute favorite.  Having the privilege of helping clients fall in love with their spaces and capturing the joy on their faces when they see their transformed home is absolutely priceless. Each client is a blank slate and, therefore, an exciting new challenge! 

 When I’m not working, I am spending time with my main man and son, Lucas. He is my pride and joy! He is 11 years old and has more energy and creativity in his pinky finger than most people on their best day. We enjoy camping, skiing, playing board games, being silly, and creating memories with family.

AMY HOJNACKI

I am one of the Designers that works for Clover. I am organized, creative, efficient and have a passion for all things design. I have been working for Clover Designs since January 2018, when I started assisting Courtney. I was recently promoted. I adore working for Clover (and Courtney) and absolutely love my clients.

As a child, my dream was always to transform ugly things and make them pretty again. At Clover, I get to do that every day! Before working for Clover, I refinished furniture for family and friends and designed for them as well. I started out repurposing and redesign as a hobby and it morphed into more from there. A few years into my career, I miraculously met Courtney. Shortly after our introduction, she saw my house, offered me a job, and the rest is history!

On a personal note, I’m very family oriented. I love spending free time with family, especially my three nieces. I am blessed to live close to them. Also, I have been married to my best friend, Christopher, for over three years now. We love attacking projects together and enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors as well! Lastly, we have a fur baby named Brandi who shares my desire for family as well.

AMBER COX

My name is Amber Cox. I joined the team here at Clover Designs as an Interior Designer just recently in August 2018.  I could not be happier to be working with such a great group of creative and talented designers.   

After graduating with my associate’s degree from Baker College in 2007, I accepted a position for Ethan Allen where I worked mostly with residential design helping clients visualize their spaces brought together with timeless pieces.  My experience also includes kitchen and bath design as well. Design is not just my job; it’s also my passion.  

I live in Waterford with my husband and 3 kiddos. Outside of design, you can usually find me doing home renovation projects around our “fixer upper” we just purchased this year, or being a mom to my 3 kids. I also love the creative challenge of finding old discarded pieces and transforming them into treasures. I’m a firm believer in the saying “They don’t make them like they used to”.  Bringing current and timeless pieces together to create functional interiors for my clients is my goal.  

OUR STORY

We started as a tiny group of like-minded women that shared a passion for people, laughter, and design. Our goal is to be a firm that is known for our quality Designers. Clover Designers have an amazing ability to transform spaces, share powerful stories, and create beauty through our designs.
