The pinnacle of good design, in my book, is where comfort and beauty meet. That one can actually imagine sitting down and enjoying the spaces which populate the portfolio of Anna Burke Interiors is a testament to her ability to cater to both needs.
Only it isn’t just Anna. Anna Burke Interiors is steered by Anna and her sister, Caroline. I’m obsessed with sisters–my own and generally–so the fact that this pair sits at the co-helm of the company is just about my favorite thing.
The Burke sisters don’t mess around when it comes to resume, either. Prior to launching her eponymous firm, Anna worked under Celerie Kemble, a name one doesn’t easily forget whether invested in the design world or not. Her work has been featured in up and coming publications you might have heard of, such as The New York Times T Magazine, Elle Magazine, Lonny, Domino, and Vogue.com. Meanwhile, her counterpart, Caroline’s background includes working directly under the editor-in-chief of Glamour Magazine.
If I could summarize what I perceive as the Anna Burke Interiors Recipe, it would be: 1 or 2 doses of incredibly unique (must be vintage) pieces, 1 layered approach to design, wherein nothing purposefully, obviously matches, yet the whole ensemble comes together in the most unexpectedly cohesive sort of way, striking art, a healthy amount of color, and the general sense that rooms are designed to actually be lived in.
