Since founding my award-winning design firm Ana Donohue Interiors in 2002, I have carefully honed my interior design sensibility. I strive to create unique living spaces that reflect our client’s spirit, style, personality, and vision. Our projects range from city residences to mountain top retreats, and they share our meticulous attention to detail and my desire to find those unexpected elements that capture the essence of every client’s personal style.
Even at a young age, I somehow knew I wanted to work in the interior design field. Initially, I thought it would be fashion, but my journey led me in other directions and took many welcomed twists and turns along the way.
I am the youngest of 4. I grew up in the middle of Oklahoma with our New York professor father and our Mississippi born mother. Much of my style and influence comes directly from my talented mother, who I watched creatively mix a unique collection of unrelated materials to create our warm and beautiful home where I was surrounded by lace curtains, and an eclectic mix of wood, furniture, patterns, textures, and pottery. The creativity of that home subtly inspires many of my interior design projects today.
Along the way, I earned a BS in Tourism Management with a minor in marketing from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. As I continued my quest to “find myself,” I pursued a career in hotel sales and marketing for Marriott, worked as an International flight attendant for American Airlines and as a pharmaceutical sales rep for Wyeth. The winding road, packed with travel, interesting people and many colorful experiences eventually led me to my destiny … interior design.
