We wanted to remodel our 20-year old, Southwestern rustic home to achieve a more contemporary look that took advantage of the open architecture and available views of canyon and mountains. By listening to us carefully as we explored our vision, Annie guided us in the creation of tranquil spaces that let in the New Mexico environment while preserving the serenity we sought. Her subtle use of color, stone and texture achieved the simple look and feel that we wanted.
When we built our new house, I thought we could do the interior design work ourselves, but my husband said our not getting help was like a man who wouldn’t stop to ask for directions. With her ideas, experience and resources, Annie O’Carroll put us on the road we wanted.
We hired Annie O'Carroll to be the designer for our home renovation based on her reputation, work ethic and superior design skills. We were amazed with the final project! Annie and her team did an amazing job - from the kitchen to the bathrooms to picking furniture pieces, finishings, rugs, fixtures, and even lighting throughout the whole house. Annie always knew what to do and what we wanted even when we couldn't explain it - she is a great listener and knows how to take ideas from the drawing board and bring them to life in any space she's working on. She is an excellent designer and has a great gift for creativity and color! I highly recommend Annie O'Carroll whether it be to design a renovation project or a new build project! Annie is the best!
I worked with Annie on my new vacation home from the ground up. She is knowledgeable, listens to what the client wants and is very personable and easy to work with. She has worked in the Santa Fe area for years but travels often and is always looking for new ideas and items to add to her work.I will continue to use her services as my new home gets furnished.
Our house would not be magical without her guidance and experienced enhancements. Everyone who sees the house says there is nothing like it in our community. For that we are very grateful.
Working with Annie O’Carroll on our San Francisco loft project was ideal! Annie was able to combine her wonderful client listening skills with her great design sense to create an environment that was perfect for us. Annie has a knack for translating beautiful style with thoughtful design – her unique awareness of what was ‘just right’ for our home speaks to her experience, and to her commitment as a professional.
Annie's professionalism and expertise in design, selection, and attention to detail made building and decorating our home a pleasure. We are thrilled with the outcome!
Annie is an insightful designer who understands the process of selecting architectural finishes as intimately as she does fabric and furniture choices. Because of her extensive experience guiding her clients through the myriad decisions required in new construction, she is an asset to any construction team. Although Annie loves being involved in the complete process, she also excels in furniture layout, fabric selection and color pallets. As a colleague for twenty years, I always look forward to working with Annie and her team. They are professional, motivated, very creative and a joy to work with.
