Q&A: Designer Annie Elliott joins Jura Koncius to discuss curb appeal

(Jungalow/Jungalow )

Art historian-turned-interior designer Annie Elliott developed her eye and aesthetic sensibilities while studying 20th-century art and working at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She has always loved art and color and found that her training in matters of scale, balance and proportion made it easy to make the shift to interior design. Elliott, who started her own design firm in 2004, lives with her husband and twin daughters in a 1910 Harry Wardman row house in Washington’s Woodley Park.
