Anne Markstein Interiors is a full-service interior design firm with residential and commercial projects in the Baltimore-Washington region and has over 25 years of experience in retail, business, and design. What sets us apart? They are our extensive experience, our knowledge, a full understanding of what's going on currently in the design field but more than that is the way we look at things, our passion for design and art, our creativity, our vision to see what's not there yet and make something unique and wonderful from a mix and blend of materials and unusual resources, our way of really listening to and understanding our clients and their needs, and our ability to give them a product and service that they would not be able to envision themselves, and we get a warm satisfaction from the whole process. We believe that it's very important for all our projects to be fully functional, orderly and practical and yet harmonious and beautiful. This melding of form and function is what good design is about -- the enhancement of our lives. Some of the services we offer are as follows: * Interior design * Space planning * Fine furnishings * Selection and coordination from extensive resources * Ordering and installation * Custom designs and fabrications * Furniture and cabinetry * Bedding, linens and window treatments * Area rugs * Color consultation * Materials specifications * Project management * Art consulting
All of it! I love meeting with my clients, the creative aspect, putting designs and ideas together that are workable and fulfill my clients' needs and wants, finding new resources, custom designs, seeing the finished product, making a positive difference in people's lives...and the list goes on. I'm very lucky to be doing the work I love.

First is the initial meeting, getting to know the client and their project. Once we've established that we want to work together, I start with space planning which to me is like having a map to guide us. Then it's putting all the ideas and designs together that will make the interiors memorable. I have a long list of resources and contacts in the industry, and can make all the pieces of the puzzle come together.
I have a BA in fine art from Tulane University in New Orleans, and over 25 years experience in interior design.
I work by the hour; my fee is $150.00/hour for all design and consultation work. I also can purchase furnishings for my clients -- everything from flooring and rugs to furniture, window treatments and accessories -- at significant discounts.
I've always wanted to be an interior designer since I was very young. It wasn't a direct route here but every step helped me on the way.
Mostly residential, some commercial projects as well.
