ANA’S JOURNAL

Welcome to my journal! A perfect place for me to indulge and explore my passion for perfectly imperfect interiors … sharing my inspiration for recreating this signature look in your home and business – be it a hacienda in Mexico, a posada in Mallorca, a loft apartment in Manhattan or a town house in Mayfair – Ana Engelhorn Interior Design can guide and inspire you.

From travel to antiques, period buildings, art, classic cards, nature, snowboarding, horses … I am sure you are already getting an insight into my inspiration, aspirations and motivations in life! And just as important are the interiors, the fabrics, the furniture that goes into recreating perfectly imperfect interiors – inspired by the principles of Wabi-Sabi.

We are always keen to interact with our followers, share with suppliers and learn more about our readers – so please tell us what you love, what you want to hear more of, what you want to see more of …

  • I found this fireplace in a warehouse in the Costa Brava. It is amazingly beautiful - the fainted yellow colour just makes it. There is nothing better than to work for a client who wants you to go out and source special finds. Originally there wasn't a fireplace in this room, but what's a bedroom without one?

  • As interior designers, we may have to take on jobs that aren't exactly in line with our own personal ethos or why we started working as a designer. Other times, it seems the project was made for us. For me, dream projects are period properties, where the clients have a love for the old and would like to preserve the history of the building. Looking after a place with a long history is a wonderful challenge that I find incredibly fulfilling. It gives me an opportunity to find suppliers who love authentic materials just as much as I do and we can learn and work together.

  • I absolutely love @amytastley editorial in @archdigest about seemlingly 'perfect' interiors. She quotes Salvador Dali, who said: 'have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it'. Reading that, I feel an instant sense of peace. It can be easy for us as designers to get so absorbed trying to reach a perfectly balanced interior that we forget interior design is a journey. A space is ever-evolving. What we leave our clients with is a beautiful, expertly-produced canvas for them to put their personal stamp on. Regardless of how stunning newly-designed interiors may look in glossy magazines, the real magic happens afterwards, when the owners start buying books and their personal items get left here and there - that is when the perfectly imperfect interiors really come into their own :). You can read more about our style on our website - check out my first Journal piece where I explain my inspiration. ⁣

  • There are certain collectibles I would go crazy for… the wooden Coca-Cola crates, which you can still find in South America or in collectors' stores, are one example. I absolutely love them :)⁣
