Welcome to Annette’s Designs

With a background in Art, a lifelong love for design, architecture and plenty of grit,¬† I huddled to develop and execute the launch of Annette’s Designs.com.

Having lived in Paris, Poland, Florida and Chicago, I taken the edge off my obsession with international design. I settled in West Chicago, occupying a light-filled high-rise condo appointed with a gallery wall, custom fireplace  and always, a killer crystal chandelier.

An old soul at heart, I am drawn to the classic Hollywood-glam and Art-deco aesthetic. I’m mildly obsessed with wallpaper, crow moldings & my weaknesses include metallic accents, crystal chandeliers and black-and-white anything.

What I love most about design is its transformative properties: how a room can go from a blank canvas to something totally spectacular.

When I’m not mentally rearranging my home based on the stunning designs found on the sites or magazines, chances are I’m on the hunt for as many metallic or crystal accents as I can get my hands on, or testing new gluten free recipes…

I’m a practical dreamer who relishes the blank page, my charity of choice is the Home Depot and the art supply store, which I frequently visit and spend way too much money in. I’m an avid artist, most late nights and weekends…

As a longtime Art and Home Design lover I was quickly enamored with the inspiring world of Luxury Living often I find myself scrolling endlessly through Instagram photos from textile designers to architecture buffs in search of new design ideas and style…

I encourage everyone to cultivate home as their greatest luxury.
