Annie is a former art historian who developed her eye and aesthetic sensibilities studying 20th-century art and working in some of the nation’s top museums.
Annie graduated from Milton Academy and studied English and Art History at the University of Pennsylvania. She went on to earn an M.A. in Art History from Williams College. Her career in museums included an internship at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and senior positions at Philadelphia’s Rosenbach Museum & Library, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian.
In museums, Annie gradually realized that she had become removed from the art itself and how people interacted with it. She wanted to impact people’s lives, directly and visibly. After coursework at the Corcoran College of Art + Design (now part of GW University), she took her love of art and color – and her training in matters of scale, balance, and proportion – and made the shift to interior design.
An Associate Member of ASID, the American Society of Interior Designers, Annie’s designs and insights have appeared in national publications such as Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Washingtonian Magazine, and The Washington Post.
Annie lives in Woodley Park with her husband, twin daughters, their dog, and a turtle.

Christy, a native Californian, has had a passion for art and design from a young age, when her uncle gifted her a subscription to Architectural Digest.
She earned degrees in politics and French before moving East and gaining a wide range of experience in project/program management, communications, speechwriting, marketing, and construction design. For six years she lived in Beijing with her family, where she learned Mandarin and volunteered for a number of causes. Her curiosity, voracious reading, and travels inform her creativity and design sensibility.
Christy lives in Chevy Chase, DC with her family.
Born in Buenos Aires, Arantza moved to the DC area at a young age.
Her formative years were shaped by her exposure to and fascination with the art and architecture of these two cities. Fluent in Spanish, Arantza earned a degree in Civil Engineering from Catholic University and worked as an engineer in both the private and public sectors. Arantza also worked in the research sector evaluating innovative materials used in construction.
