But after returning from a spell living in Ibiza, the time felt right to move her young and growing family to the countryside. When the chance arose to buy an increasingly unloved monastic retreat, Anna couldn’t resist the opportunity to offer it a new lease of life, turning it into a desirable and incredibly spacious home."Continue reading
Anna has long been regarded as a tastemaker: a graduate from Chelsea College of Arts, a successful interior stylist and founder of the fashionable Primrose Hill store, Maiden, back in the early 2000's. Her latest initiative - the launch of AU Bespoke - a private atelier sourcing unique and timeless pieces that complement more minimalist, sophisticated spaces.
Anna's discerning edit includes antique, mid-century and vintage: furniture and objects united by their design sensibilities and quality of craftsmanship. Less is definitely more and her look is attracting a lot of attention behind the scenes, from some serious interior names. Pieces you can expect to find: think marble coffee tables, Willi Rizzo dining tables, vintage sheepskin covered chairs, unique lamps, stone bowls, pottery and covetable vintage textiles. Selling both online and by private appointment from her home, this is an exciting business to watch. Be quick if you find something you love, these beautiful one-offs sell quickly.

Discovered on The Modern House: St. Francis House, a monastic retreat transformed into “an exceptionally chic modern home.” Located in Cambridgeshire, a 45-minute train journey from London, the late-Georgian structure was built as a country estate. It was in the 1950s that a religious order moved in and purpose-rebuilt the place as a silent retreat, stripping out just about all of the original detailing and introducing, among other things, 22 spartan bedrooms on the second floor.
