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 …

  • Now, I know I promote decluttering and feng-shui, but there are certain areas where I think some orderly buying and collecting is called for.  A great example is books. I love buying books and then keeping the ones I've enjoyed. Not only are they a nice record of what I've read, there are many books that I go back to for a particularly reference or simply because I want to reread them. My husband just bought me an amazing called Interiors and published by Phaidon. That will definitely be staying on my bookshelf!

  • I love this quote because I often get asked what I think will be the next trend in interior design. In all honesty, I don't find the question that interesting, because I'm not that into 'trends'. I have my own style that I adapt to the room or building. While it's important to stay fresh and I often get inspiration from new ideas or craftspeople making beautiful new objects or materials (which isn't necessarily the same thing as what's 'trendy') I find older objects and buildings especially interesting because of the story behind them. History can tell us so much about the future and help inform our own path. That said, I do think it's interesting when trends reoccur, such as flares! I love flares and whenever they come into vogue again I rejoice :)) _

  • It is important to have a decluttered kitchen. If there are too many utensils (which you never use) then you won't have the much needed space for prepping and serving.

  • I found this Swedish desk in a wonderful antiques store in Petworth. I love it. It reminds me of the my own school days - we had the similar desks (although not in such a great colour!) that had that type of compartment to store your books in.
