Anna Gibson

Founder & Principal Designer

Anna’s deep-rooted creativity and 20+ years of design experience are the key ingredients to creating high-performing homes and executing each project to perfection. Her immersion in the world of design and construction, however, started long before that.

Born in Israel, Anna was raised by her father, a renowned civil engineer in the Old City of Jerusalem, and by her mother, who endlessly renovated every home they lived in. From an early age, Anna developed a deep appreciation for form, function, and unexpected innovation.

Now, nearly 20 years after starting her own design studio in Reston, VA, Anna has been recognized as one of the area’s best designers by Northern Virginia, Virginia Living, and Houzz. She has earned awards for “best features in a custom-designed kitchen” and been named a top design influencer by DesignHounds and Fixr.

When not traveling the world to gather inspiration, Anna enjoys engaging in local charity work, spending time with her husband and daughter, and cozying up with her Mini Goldendoodle, Harley.

She spent three years refining her skills before embarking on a journey towards a Master of Science in Business Analytics at George Mason University.

When she’s not immersed in marketing operations, Sydney can be found indulging in her love for baking, exploring the literary world, or jet-setting to new destinations. Currently, she’s mastering French pastries in her kitchen, diving into Truman Capote’s literary classics, and preparing to travel to her 20th country.

Wellness Officer

Harley is a common fixture in our design studio, where he is always ready to greet clients, support our team with cuddles and kisses, and win over hearts with his puppy-dog eyes.

When he’s not hard at work, Harley can be found exploring new places, enjoying a belly rub, or taking a well-deserved nap.

“Anna did an amazing job remodeling our kitchen, bathrooms, and foyer. She’s upbeat and no-nonsense when it comes to getting things done. Thanks to Anna, it’s like we’re living in a brand new home.”

– Clara and Craig, McLean, VA
