Feeling Inspired – Anna Burke Interiors

April 13, 2015 at 5:05 AM 3 comments

I hate to admit it but my design inspiration has been running low lately.  Perhaps because we are bombarded with images from online mags to Instagram that designs can start to feel redundant.  As we are inundated with constant access to designers work, originality dissipates far too soon; an indigo batik pillow becomes ho hum, a black room seems typical, etc.

I stumbled across the work of Anna Burke Interiors yesterday and it felt fresh to me.  She is traditional with a twist and oh so fun!  She collects interesting vintage pieces and mixes them with bespoke furniture for a look that doesn’t feel formulaic.



Funny story – when I first saw this image (above), I fell in love with the sofa and I thought to myself, “one day, I’m going to own that sofa” And then I looked up the source.  Ummmm, I already own that sofa in pretty much the same color: it’s Jonathan Adler.  #mommybrain  Mine is covered in spit up and needs to be restuffed so that could be why I didn’t make the connection.

Back to Anna –



What really got me inspired was Anna’s Instagram feed which I’m clueless on how to pull photos from.  I could get you this one image.  But, I encourage you to follow her here.


Anyone been inspiring you lately?

    Your couch is adorable and especially the little munchkin on it. I love the painting above it. Could you share the name of the artist?
