In Home specializes in creating unique and inspired design. Owner and designer, Anna Hardy, creates one-of-a-kind furnishings and art from found items and draws her design inspiration from a lifetime of world travel. Our commitment to Fair-Trade and support of local craftsmen and small businesses is evident in our services and style. Whether you’re looking for residential or commercial interior design services, new and antique furniture, reinvented furniture and decor, custom window treatments and upholstered furniture, In Home is your source. If you’re looking for more than average recycled products from yesterday, for truly unique pieces that have been re-found, refurbished and redesigned, In Home is your source.
Our interior design philosophy is simple: Good interior design starts with good bones. A coat of lip gloss won’t fix the problems that are best solved with a commitment to healthy living, eating well and exercise. So it is with our interior design philosophy. We believe that good design starts from the ground up- and we are committed to an understanding of construction, building arts and solid foundations. Anna’s designs are thorough and enduring, and start with the best possible beginning before adding her unique aesthetics.
Meet The Designer
Owner / Founder
At the age of 13 Anna Hardy Evans, In Home owner and designer, took a side chair and repainted it, removed the caning and reupholstered the seat. Transforming this chair launched a passion and a career in transforming furniture and rejuvenating spaces. For the next 30 years as an artist and designer, she has been dedicated to re-imagining, reinventing and “re-finding” pieces.
Anna was born in England, where her parents owned an antique shop. In that shop Anna’s father taught her and her twin brother how to repair and restore furniture. Her brother went on to restore old homes and create custom kitchens and cabinets. She went on to study art, textiles, sculpture, painting and design at Taunton Art School and Somerset College of Arts and Technology, quickly becoming a Member of The Society of Artists and Industrial Designers. Anna traveled and lived all over the world, taking inspiration from her experiences in England, France, Germany, Morocco, The Bahamas, Florida, New Mexico and now, New Hampshire.
Anna’s experiences restoring furniture in the antique shop instilled a certain sense of connection to, and deep appreciation of, the past and preserving history. Her immersion in the myriad of the world’s cultures expanded her horizons and inspired her to see beyond what is- to what can be. Her design style strikes a balance between these two concepts and is evident in each and every creation.
