Named one of LA’s top designers by The Franklin Report and a “National Tastemaker” by Luxe Interiors + Design, Annette English is celebrated for the bold, original and immaculately appointed residential interiors she creates for discerning clientele. Her company, Annette English & Associates, has enjoyed a sterling 20+ year reputation as the go-to design house for music stars, the Hollywood elite, high ranking CEO’s, political and cultural leaders, and more.
Her uncompromising dedication to clients has earned Annette a reputation that extends far beyond her home base of Southern California. She and her team design an amazing array of interiors across the United States and around the world… elaborate private residences in Beverly Hills and San Francisco, an expansive 10-acre estate in Malibu, a jewel of an apartment in Paris, a sleek contemporary home in Manhattan Beach, a rustic beach getaway in Australia, and a 40,000- square foot French Chateau in Beverly Hills.
Originally hailing from Australia and still an avid traveler, Annette’s expeditions have taken her to Morocco, Turkey, India, Peru, Asia, and London (all of Europe), as well as numerous other locales- all of which beautifully inform her many diverse residential projects; along with her custom furniture and lighting design.
No matter the size of the house or style of its client, Annette’s true calling is to realize her clients’ vision – down to the smallest detail – and turn their homes into an expression of their lives.
Aside from her career, Annette enjoys cooking and eating exotic foods, working out, catching up with family and friends, and anything spontaneous! But above all, her favorite thing to do is go on adventures with her best friend and husband, Doug.
Her favorite quote is "Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake" – Henry David Thoreau.« Back to Leadership
