Libbie & Winston Designs was born in 2011 and named after Anna's two beloved dogs, Libbie & Winston.  The business started as a graphic design studio selling everything from invitations and stationery to giftware and children's clothing.  Fast - Forward to 2017, Anna was pregnant with her fourth child and decided to refocus her attention on her family and raising young children.  In 2021; however, Anna re-opened her doors, yet this time transition to her true passion, residential interiors.

Anna, a North Carolina native, has always had an interest in architecture, space planning, fabrics and furnishings since a young age.  After graduating from the University of Richmond, she accepted a job in Richmond, VA with a national catalog company, Shades of Light, as a Rug & Textile Buyer.   From planning and executing photo shoots for the catalog to attending market for buying trips, the interest in residential design grew further.  Anna went on to attend Virginia Commonwealth University and obtain her MFA in Interior Architecture.  Anna and her high school sweetheart husband, Nathan, started their family after she finished graduate school.  They welcomed their oldest daughter, Eloise, and then soon moved to their current hometown, Charlotte, NC.  Anna and Nathan have four children; two girls and two boys, a favorite dog, Arlie and 11 chickens! 

Anna has always been drawn to color and has never met a shade of blue she didn't love!  She loves to mix old with new and is always up for a good DIY, too!  When she's not shuttling around four children to various activities, you can find her tending to chickens, installing curtains, hanging wallpaper or changing out light switches!  Please reach out for help with your next project!
