My mother taught me that style was somewhere between taste and confidence.
My design perspective is multi-faceted. I find the connection to order and balance runs deep in my designs. For me, translating these elements throughout the scope of a project is vital.
Creating beautiful interiors must be combined with an understanding of the people, ideals and architecture that surround it. One of the hallmarks of my firm is listening to my clients and building an inclusive relationship which cultivates beauty and comfort. Careful, thoughtful design planning means I take into account how my clients live and how they want to live.
Equally important is defining how a room relates to its architecture. Layering details transports raw rooms into spaces that inspire. Balancing all these elements allows me to shape interiors that are not only inviting, but beg to be used. My conviction that a home of true value & beauty should reflect the heart and personality of its inhabitants will never waver.
My father called me a dreamer.
As a child, Annette was introduced to textiles by her mother and a fascination was ignited. While she never embraced the art of sewing like her mother, she admired the dressmaker details she watched her mother create. She soon developed a love for architecture, furniture design and painting through books and travel which she shared with her mother. Her father, a pragmatist, worried his eldest daughter spent too much time dreaming and often times became impatient by her relentless pursuit of folly.
Ms. Hannon holds a BA in Interior Design from Drake University & founded her eponymous firm in 2004. The passion her mother had for fashion, textiles & travel today fuels Annette’s inspiration for the firm’s interior design projects. She credits her father for instilling within her a strong work ethic and teaching her the value of fighting for what you believe in.
Ms. Hannon’s work has appeared in Luxe, Traditional Home, Washington Home & Design and Washington Spaces magazines. Her work has also been seen in The Washington Post, CBS Saturday Morning News & NBC News. Luxe magazine recently named her to their 2015 Gold List; Ms. Hannon has also been routinely listed in Washingtonian magazine’s best interior designer listings for the metropolitan area. Ms. Hannon has participated in a number of showhouses which include the DC Design House, National Symphony Orchestra Showhouse, CharityWorks GreenHouse Showhouse and has been a participant in Georgetown Jingle.
