Founder and Lead Designer

Anna is an NKBA-certified kitchen and bathroom designer with over 15 years of experience in residential construction. Hailing from Israel, she has been based in Reston for the past 18 years.

Growing up with a civil engineer dad, Anna is no stranger to hard hats and construction sites. She enjoys every aspect of the design process, but her favorite part is being able to think outside the box and bring her clients the innovative and the unexpected.

In keeping with her international upbringing, Anna loves to travel around the world and collect new ideas for her design work. But her heart is at home in Reston, where she is committed to giving back to the community she loves. In 2019, she won a Community Hero Award for her work with the CORE Foundation. She also volunteers for the D.C. chapter of Team RWB.

Anna has been recognized by Northern Virginia, Virginia Living, and Houzz as one of the area’s best designers 3+ years in a row and was named a top design influencer by DesignHounds and Fixr. She has also received an NVBIA Blue Ribbon for best features in a custom-designed kitchen. Anna is the in-house design expert for the Natural Stone Institute and runs the local chapter office for the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
