061: Anna Smith – So You Want to Be an Interior Designer?

I have such a fun episode for you today that has been a long time in the making! Today’s guest is Anna Smith, and she is the principle of the full-service residential interior design firm Annabode out of Denver. What makes Annabode unique, apart from her incredible style, is her drive to incorporate an environmentally and socially responsible philosophy into her business.

After seeing the amount of waste in the industry and the negative environmental and social impact manufacturing has in general, Anna has decided to make the commitment both personally and professionally to use her purchasing power for good by investing in companies actively striving to make the world a better place!

Not to mention Anna’s design style is seriously swoon-worthy. She draws inspiration from art and nature and the outcome is a style that’s organic, modern, and relaxing, and they perfectly compliment the historic houses she specializes in renovating.

Anna was so fun to talk to- I’ve actually been wanting to talk to her since the start of the podcast, and our timing finally lined up! Let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
