  • Goodbye 2016!

    2016 is coming to a close and the gratitude I feel for the past twelve months is surely something I can’t convey adequately in a blog post. Anne Rue Interiors began nearly twenty years ago in my own home and now, our ever-evolving design firm has outgrown its quaint Lake Mary office and taken root in a custom-designed commercial space in Sanford, Florida.

    As the demand for inspired design grew, so did we. Kelly Lofgren, NCIDQ licensed Interior Designer, CAD genius, and mom extraordinaire joined our team and we truly couldn’t be happier about it.

    We rocked five high-end residential installations – some of my favorites to date! One of our most recent projects included an Ashton Woods model home in Longwood, Florida.

    We filmed two Travel Channel Hotel Impossible episodes: “Tiny Horse, Big Problems” in Cody, Wyoming, where I met Cookie the mini horse (seriously – see below), and “Anchorless in Anchorage” in Alaska.

    We designed a fabulous vignette for Design On A Dime in Miami (DOAD). DOAD Miami is a charity event organized by Housing works, a non-profit organization whose mission is to cure AIDS and end homelessness in the United States by 2025.

    Anne Rue Interiors also made The List TWICE in the Orlando Business Journal: Central Florida Interior Design Firms (#11) and Top Central Florida Women-Owned Businesses (#25)!!!

    We even welcomed an ARI mini!!

    And even more priceless captures of ARI’s 2016!

    That’s a wrap! Thank you SO much to everyone who made this year possible. Here’s to another year of health, happiness, and inspiration.

  • Waterworks // Isla Collection

    Just came across the new Isla collection from Waterworks & am so in love with it’s sleek, modern look! The “gem like” knobs were created in collaboration with jewelry designer, Jill Platner, with each piece’s design beginning by hand sculpting a model out of wax into its unique, geometric shape. They then used a new process using 3D scanning to convert the model into CAD format & from there were able to create cast molds to bring the collection to life! It’s design brings such a beautiful new look to the bathroom! To see more of the gorgeous collection, visit HERE.

  • New Work // South Orange Ave

    Here is an office update we recently completed! Our client really wanted his office to not feel like one & by bringing in a mix of rustic & modern elements we were able to achieve that laid back, yet still sophisticated feel he was longing for.
