Hanover West

The more I research and write about interior design the more I learn the importance of texture and form, and Atlanta interior designer, Anna Braund has found the perfect balance of these factors in this relaxed interior.


Based in Georgia, Anna Braund was a Top 10 Nominee in HGTV’s Fresh Faces of Design Awards, Anna’s philosophy on design is that “design should be both bespoken to the individual and rooted in the formal principals of design”. Her designs have a warmth and charm that draws you further into a space and as you can see, texture and form play a very important part.
