“My family and I could not be happier with our new home! It’s beautiful, comfortable and functions well as the perfect family house. And we have Annette and her team to thank for it. They thought through every single detail and anticipated what we would need or want. Annette’s work – but most importantly her dedicated and personal passion for interior design – has elevated this house to another level. Every step of the way I knew that the entire process was in the most capable hands. She took the stress out of what was an enormous five year, ground up construction project and actually made it fun. The end result takes our breath away!”

“Our home is simply stunning thanks to Annette English and her team. Her expertise and passion for her work shines every step of the way. She captured our vision for our home in Manhattan Beach and went over and above what we thought was possible! Our beach home is stylish, modern, and timeless, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. We have collected art over the years, and she listened to our ideas on how to work them into the design while providing her expertise and advice. Annette and her team left no stone unturned and thought of every detail to perfection. We felt very comfortable knowing Annette was taking care of us throughout the entire process. It takes true talent and creativity to make a house a home, and Annette has both. Thank you, Annette English & Associates!”

“With Annette’s help the house we built is truly a home we are proud to share with friends and family. After a three-year collaboration our home feels like a place we would design – if we had really, really great taste. Annette was able to understand the look we were after, and she created it for us at a level of quality we had never known. Thanks to her team’s attention to detail, our project was completed in a timely and seamless manner. We would work with her again!”

“I write this note having just walked through the final installation of our Summitridge project and at the end of the day I must say; well done! But in addition to delivering a beautiful end product, my real appreciation is for the exceptionally professional efforts provided by yourself and your staff. This was experienced not only on a personal interaction level but also, and perhaps more importantly, through the detailed and thorough work product that came from AEA throughout the development process. You made our jobs easier and I thank you.”

- Ed Saborio, Planning Partners Ltd – Owner’s Representative


“Annette is one of the most hard working, creative, detail-oriented and talented persons that I’ve worked with, and a consummate professional. It was an absolute pleasure working with Annette, as she made my life so much easier and stress-free, during a very busy period in which we had to re-do our new house, inside and out. Annette is a great listener, and is so talented in getting into her client’s mind to bring their dreams and visions alive. Her designers and staff were very attentive and easy to work with. Annette worked within our budget and timeline, and the end result far exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail and the impeccable execution resulted in an elegant, classy and beautiful space in our home that we will cherish for a long time. We would love to work with Annette again.”

“Over my 30 years in the high-end custom home industry, I’ve worked with many design firms and in my opinion Annette English & Associates’ documentation, responsiveness, thoroughness and foresight to contractor/project needs is in the top 1% of all firms. I don’t dole out these accolades lightly. You’ve done a great job instilling in your team the need to provide the contractor what is needed to keep a project running fluidly and to respond efficiently when the inevitable bumps in the road occur.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your team on the house we just completed, and I look forward to the next project. I’ve not even touched on the artistic aspect of your contribution to the project because it speaks for itself … stunning.”

“I met Annette in 2006 when she designed the Guest Bedroom at the Esquire House 2006 in Beverly Hills for Bally Milan. I was impressed with her extraordinary work, which was subsequently published in Esquire Magazine. We were fortunate at Esquire to work with Annette again on the 2010 Esquire House in LA, where she designed the Master Suite for Salvatore Feragammo. Her work exceeded our highest expectations and really stood out among the spaces designed for the house. Her design had a level of quality, detail, and refinement that was truly impeccable. Not only was she published again in Esquire, but she was also featured on several national T.V. shows and in Luxe Magazine for her gorgeous renovation. Annette and her staff are delightful to work with and define the word ‘professional.’ I hope to collaborate with Annette and her team again on future projects.”

“I enthusiastically and whole-heartedly recommend Annette English and Associates for all your design needs. My relationship with Annette started with my first design project, which entailed a 1920’s Hollywood Hills bungalow. Annette’s guidance was extraordinary. She had the ability to listen to (and most importantly translate) my desires and wishes into a greater reality than I had envisioned. She is extremely well-versed in many design styles, has incredible vendors and craftsman, and explains and organizes “the budget” with efficiency. I have since completed a second project with her to similar results.”

“Over the last seven years, my husband and I have turned to Annette English & Associates several times to design major projects in our home. We appreciated the care and consideration Annette and her team always gave to the development of these designs. They were creative, innovative, flexible, and responsive to our needs and concerns. The projects were managed efficiently and were completed within the specified time frames, sometimes even in advance of the estimated date. We were always able to speak with either Annette or an assistant whenever we had questions, suggestions, or concerns. Most importantly, the final result for each project has been absolutely beautiful.”

- Judge Anita Dymant


“Annette had an incredible vision for my home, a tremendous sense of scale and limitless creativity. She put a personal stamp on my home that I couldn’t have achieved without her help. I especially valued her meticulous attention to detail and the personalized service I received –I felt like the design of my home was always her first priority. And the end result far exceeded my expectations.”

- Kelly Daugherty


“We were so happy with the initial work Annette did on our home that we let her take on the whole house. Annette was completely in control of the whole project. She’s very meticulous, a great communicator and we valued her honesty. Just a great person to be in charge of a project.”
