About

Annabode Interior Design

We help people create story-filled spaces through thoughtful, responsible design.

More than a residential design service, our purpose is to make spaces more meaningful. We’re the only full-service interior design firm in Denver, CO that specializes in both environmentally and socially-conscious interiors.

But most importantly, we want you to have a home that brings you joy.

Known for our carefully curated, organic, and modern style, our award-winning work has been published in Sunset, Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, Luxe Magazine, and 5280 Home.  Our founder, Anna Elyce Smith, has been repeatedly recognized for changing the interior design industry and the Denver design scene for the better.

From vintage thrift store finds to one-of-a-kind artisan-made objects, we help you collect pieces that match your aesthetic while supporting the Colorado economy. Additionally, we source the latest fair-trade, socially-responsible goods from our growing list of vetted vendors.

Older homes hold particular appeal for us, as they inherently come with a story. Our founder, Anna, studied the history of decorative arts at both Sotheby’s in London and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., where she dug into material culture—the physical objects, resources, and spaces that societies create. She saw how meaningful the objects in our home can be. She fell in love with the possibilities.

And that’s really how this all began—with curiosity and a desire to create spaces with a sense of connection.
