I am inspired by the world around and feel that design isn't just my job, but it is my passion. I have been fortunate to live and work in some very inspiring places and continue to be inquisitive and notice the way design influences our environment.
My name is Anna Baraness and I am an Interior Designer living in Manhattan. I have recently moved here from London, England where I lived and worked for 4 years. Originally from Canada, I trained to be an Interior Designer at Ryerson University in Toronto. I work mainly on residential interiors but have done work on corporate projects as well.
As I embark on my new adventure in Manhattan I wanted to find another way of expressing myself creatively. This blog is my way of sharing my thoughts and ideas on the world of interiors, architecture and design with others who are interested like me.

The incredible photo in the sidebar of me and our lovely Italian Greyhound "Lina" was taken by the very talented and truly wonderful photographer Nikki Leigh McKean. Thanks Nikki for this great photo of me and the little one!
