Meet Anna-Marie Claassen of Anthology Interiors
If you’ve seen the incredible new spring/summer display windows at SOCO + The OC Mix, you’re looking at the work of Anna-Marie Claassen of Anthology Interiors.  Anna-Marie got her start in design at the tender age of 9 when she received her first dollhouse, and never looked back!  After studying Interior Design at Ivy Tech College, she began working in Orange County’s high-end residential interior design world before launching Anthology Interiors.  Through Anthology, she’s completed an array of projects – from furnishings to heavy remodels to new home builds – all with a focus on colors, patterns & improving quality of life through design.  We think you’ll agree her passion shines through her work!  For more information, visitwww.anthologyinteriors.com
