Our Center, a Lifetime in the Making
Anna Hardy, Founder and Owner
Anna Hardy was destined for the design world. Growing up in a 500 year-old Manor House in England, she was surrounded by historical homes and artistic minds. Her mother, an antique dealer and painter, taught Anna about antiques. Anna learned how to refinish furniture from her father and from other fine craftsmen in the local area. Anna went on to study art and ultimately obtained a degree in textiles, where she fell in love with color, textile printing, and the world of interior design.
Anna’s design aesthetic has been shaped by her world travels, spanning countries and continents. She’s traveled from Northern Africa and the Mediterranean, to the Eastern bloc and the United States. Anna’s design knowledge grew as she traveled. She was commissioned to paint artwork and murals while living in Germany and she honed her furniture making skills and learned about Indian pottery while living in New Mexico. While in Florida, she took on renovating her family home and began working with many interior designers in the Palm Beach and Delray Beach area. After to moving to New Hampshire, Anna continued her design/build renovation work as well as her interior design work and opened her first showroom in Exeter, NH in 2010.
Today, Anna shares with you her knowledge and love of design/build through the In Home Design Center. Her eclectic mix of furnishings speaks to her travelled experiences. Her in-depth knowledge of renovation and building is evident in her approach. Anna’s love of design permeates the Showroom and Center, now available to designers and homeowners, residents, architects, and builders.
