We are visual story tellers.
Named as a top interior designer in Los Angeles by The Franklin Report and a “National Tastemaker” by Luxe Interiors + Design, Annette English is celebrated for the bold and original residential and commercial interiors she creates. Annette’s firm, Annette English + Associates, has enjoyed a 20+ year reputation as the go-to design house for the business world and Hollywood elite. Annette’s achievements can be seen in a variety of homes and businesses from those of film and music stars to high-ranking CEOs—all of whom luxuriate in Annette’s innate ability to manage every aspect of even intensely complex projects.
Her uncompromising dedication to clients has earned Annette a reputation that extends far beyond her home base of Southern California. She and her team of high end interior designers in Los Angeles, have designed an amazing array of interiors across the United States and around the world … an expansive 10-acre estate in Malibu, a jewel of an apartment in Paris, a rustic beach getaway in Australia, and a 36,000 sq. ft. Beverly Hills chateau, to name but a few. No matter the size of the house or style of its client, Annette’s true calling is to realize her clients’ visions and turn their homes into expressions of their lives.
In this episode, Annette and Andrea discuss their path to partnership and the “why” behind promoting from within. We also discuss team culture, the value of leadership, and what it takes to be a part of their small but mighty team.
Andrea’s natural curiosity, sense of adventure, and desire for inspiration have led to a lifelong passion for design and exploring the world’s beauty. With a background in hospitality design, Andrea brings an exquisite sense of aesthetics and organizational skills to AE+A, where she has become a client favorite for her attentive solicitation of their needs.
Andrea knows that great design is more than putting a pretty room together; it requires studying how humans intimately connect with their environment and using that knowledge to create personalized spaces together. She thrives on the challenge of balancing functionality, aesthetics, and finances with each project, believing that a well-designed home should add purpose and clarity to a person’s life.
