Meet The Team

Our Story

Ann Marie Design Co. started long before it began. Let us explain: we met years ago when our young sons forced us into one of those awkward mom moments where you find yourself “dating” another mom so your kid can play with another kid. While we were both true to form and awkward at first, little did we know that a fateful meeting at the mailbox would lead to us becoming the closest of friends & business partners. Very quickly, we realized that while we shared many interests, none monopolized our texts and conversations more than our love of designing & crafting our homes into places that make us feel home. Somehow, our banter about going into business together slowly materialized into just that, and Ann Marie was born (our first child together since we started mom-dating). The use of our quintessential 1980s middle names (Jennifer Ann & Janna Marie), defines our partnership perfectly; we meet in the middle to produce collaborative designs that facilitate feelings of coziness, comfort, and calm in your home. We couldn’t be more excited to share our talents with you and your family.

I was born in Round Rock and have had the privilege of raising my children here. I married my high school sweetheart in 2006, and we now share 3 children together. As a full time mom, my focus has always been on our home. One of my biggest joys and creative outlets has been designing our home to be beautiful and comfortable, while also functioning perfectly for us. My affection for interior design has grown throughout the years as I have worked within my own home, and the homes of friends and family.

Design Philosophy

My goal is creating a design that improves the form and function of spaces within a home. Home is supposed to feel comfortable, cozy, and yes, even peaceful. The feeling of coming home is special, and exactly what I want to harness when creating a design. It’s our hope that we create an experience that is fun and exciting for our clients, and ultimately helps them love their home even more.

Although I grew up in Central Illinois, my husband and I have called Round Rock home since 2006. I come from a long line of DIYers, and perhaps that accounts for my unwavering belief that if I can dream it, I can make it work. When I’m not designing or executing projects in my own home, I love nothing more than traveling to new places with my husband & son, disconnecting from the outside world, and spending time in the wide open spaces of nature (which inspire many of my own designs). 

Design Philosophy

It’s simple, really; I aim to design spaces that are a true reflection of a client’s individuality. I want my designs to invoke feelings of warmth, comfort, and contentment within the home. Accordingly, organization is always at the forefront of my mind when working with clients. It not only helps streamline aesthetics, it also reduces stress in all aspects of life. I believe that a home can not only feel good, but can look good, too.
