Annie Elliott, MA, ASID

 Annie Elliott trained as an art historian and worked in some of the nation’s top museums before turning to interior design. 

 Annie graduated from Milton Academy, studied English and Art History at the University of Pennsylvania, and earned an M.A. in Art History from Williams College. Her career in museums included senior positions at Philadelphia’s Rosenbach Museum & Library, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian.

 After coursework at the Corcoran College of Art + Design (now part of GW University), she took her love of art and color – and her training in matters of scale, balance, and proportion – and made the shift to interior design. Today, she and her team work in and beyond DC, creating gorgeous homes that feature a hallmark mix of modern furnishings, antiques, and art.

 Recently described as a “Gen Z sensation” by The Washington Post for her informative videos on TikTok, Annie (who is decidedly NOT Gen Z!) loves engaging with people about all things decorating and interior design. Annie’s work and insights have appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washingtonian Magazine, HGTV Magazine, and other print and online publications.

 Annie lives in Woodley Park with her husband; twin daughters (off and on, since they’re now in college); and dog.
