Charleston Interior Designer – Ann Marie’s passion is in meeting the design challenges from construction to finishing touches whether it’s a room, dream home or dream yacht. Her philosophy is that interior design is a collaboration between designer & client with the ultimate goal of blending your favorite pieces with today’s classic looks that will withstand time.

Her ability to listen and tailor her client’s individual needs makes her a perfect liaison linking architects, builders and remodelers to make your personal paradise a reflection of who you are.

She was raised in Chicago, moved to Charlotte, and was a designer at two highly acclaimed furniture galleries in Wisconsin and Baltimore. Her experience of diversified lifestyles from living in the Midwest and along the east coast credits her ability to design for clients throughout the US.

Ann Marie’s first degree is in accounting from College of DuPage in Illinois, however, while working for a Custom Home Builder she learned her real enjoyment came from planning and designing with the homeowner. She then earned her degree in Interior Design from Fox Valley College in Wisconsin.

Sailing is also a passion of Ann Marie & her husband. They took a year’s sabbatical and followed a dream. Ann Marie skippered their 42’ sailboat from Baltimore down the ICW to Florida while her husband installed the new interior she designed. They then sailed to the Bahamas. It was a trip of a lifetime with amazing adventures and unforgettable experiences.

Ann Marie is now happy to call Charleston her home.

She is especially excited about the extensive offering of quality furniture lines at Southeastern Galleries. Ann Marie can be reached either at the gallery or via email at annmaried@southeasterngalleries.com Southeastern Galleries – A Premier Charleston Furniture Store
