Ana Engelhorn was born in Switzerland, to Spanish and German parents, and travelling extensively has always been a way of life. Through her travels Ana has experienced some of the world’s most celebrated hotels and an array of beautiful private homes, yet the interiors that always made the biggest impression were those that had a sense of character.
These characterful interiors were created through playful curiosity, not a trend, and they were designed through life experiences and personal taste, not a formulaic process. They felt like homes. Places that were lived in. Places that were so welcoming and honest that they didn’t feel designed at all.
This passion for unique character and relaxed luxury has stayed with her.
When you come to Ana Engelhorn Interior Design, you get access to a whole team of people. Most of the required interior design skills are covered in-house, but when a project needs certain outside expertise, we are able to draw from a group of carefully selected professionals that we are proud to call our team. I’m really pleased to introduce some of them:
