Throughout her life Anne has expressed her creativity in various forms, in drawing, painting, pottery, weaving, photography, writing, cooking and sewing. When her children were young, Anne sewed their costumes, then progressed to an heirloom quality christening gown for a very special little girl using the techniques of French Sewing by Machine.
Finally, circumstances led her to her true love: interior design and decorating. When she and her husband became empty nesters, they built a new home, customizing it to their needs. Anne began studying interior design as well as taking classes to learn how to sew her own window treatments. After designing their new home and sewing her own window treatments, her friends asked her to help them decorate their homes and that is how her business began.
While she still loves sewing, she loves designing and decorating much, much more, and has entrusted the sewing to her workroom artists who specialize in fine custom home soft furnishings.
Committed to ongoing education in order to better serve her clients, Anne continues her studies through seminars and industry events, and staying abreast of the latest trends through reading, travel, and attending markets. A self-confessed fabric-aholic, Anne has a special love for how fabrics transform space. Finding new and unique sources for home decor is a particular passion she brings to her clients. Anne also has a special love for the transforming power of color and uses her discerning eye to bring color into her clients’ lives.
Anne prides herself on asking the right questions, discerning her clients style, and interpreting their wishes to create for them their very own version of interior beauty.
