MARK TRYTHALL / IRVINGTON DUTCH COLONIAL

"When my husband and I decided to radically downsize, I realized I needed a design professional to help make the most of our limited space. We hired Annie for a light remodel and complete interior design. She designed beautiful and functional storage throughout the house which increased our storage space so much that we now have empty drawers. Looking back, I didn’t give her much to go on regarding my style, but yet she somehow managed to produce exactly what I was looking for. I truly don’t know how she did it. Her dedication, creativity, and talent are self-evident in her work. A true professional, she was a joy to work with and I can’t recommend her highly enough."

NAOMI HUDETZ / WHITE SALMON COTTAGE

As we embarked on our basement remodel, we were fortunate enough to win some of Annie’s time through an elementary school raffle (she was very generous to donate her hours). Never having used a designer, we didn’t know exactly what to expect, but she has far exceeded any expectations that we did have. Our first challenge came with wanting to cram about 7 different functional areas into a relatively small basement space. We worked through some layouts on our own beforehand, but were never completely satisfied with any of them. When Annie came into the picture, she immediately made a few modifications that made complete sense and opened up all common areas nicely while creating private spaces where needed. Then, when we began to talk through finishes, my husbands’ and my different aesthetic preferences came into play. We are not polar opposites, but have some varied ideas as to what the perfect basement looks and feels like. After sending Annie some inspiration photos, she compiled a portfolio that perfectly combined our tastes. In addition to giving general design ideas, she provided very specific suggestions of flooring/tile brands and colors, paint, furniture, etc, as well as local places where we can buy these items for reasonable prices. We both walked away from our portfolio meeting with her extremely energized. Our last renovation was stressful and anxiety provoking, and Annie has made this one fun by taking out the most challenging parts for us. While we “won” our first hours, we definitely plan to add on more, and to use Annie for all of our future remodel projects (and there will be more).

HEIDI NIBOUR / BASEMENT REMODEL

"Working with Annie and her team was a wonderful experience! We get compliments on our office every time someone new walks in the door. Very professional, but we also feel like Annie is a permanent part of the NetRush team now. We would not hesitate to refer Wise Design to anyone looking for a creative and unique space."

CHRIS MARENTETTE / NERUSH OFFICE

"I worked with Annie on a complete design and build-out project that converted a 1920s warehouse into a vibrant Physical Therapy office. She has great ideas and sense, is pleasant and easy to work with, and was a great sounding board for my random thoughts and ideas throughout the process. I really feel like my dream of a unique, bike-friendly PT office has finally become a reality- huge thanks to Wise Design!"

KEVIN SCHMIDT / PEDAL PT

"Annie Wise was a great partner as we updated two rooms in our older home. While we had some of the right pieces, our dining room just did not have the personality we had hoped. Annie was a great listener and came up with a creative new vision for us that fit our lifestyle and kept what was important to us. The pieces and treatments were all extremely value oriented, so we were able to transform the room within our budget and in a reasonable time frame.Our teenage daughter's room needed a storage re-think, and again, more personality. Working together, Annie helped us come up with a vision that worked for parents, as well as a 17 year old! Her room is now distinct, easy to live in, and organized."

ANNE L. / GRANTS PARK REMODEL

We hired Wise Design to consult on our kitchen/dining remodel. Annie was incredibly helpful! Her eye for layout and design was exactly what we needed. Our remodel would have not come together so seamlessly without her input. I'd hire Wise Design again in a heartbeat for our next project.

NICOLE BANTA / KITCHEN REMODEL

My husband and I are working on our second project with Wise Design and we couldn't be more impressed. Annie was the design lead on the build out of our Physical Therapy Clinic and we always get comments about how fantastic the space is and how it doesn't feel like a clinic (which is exactly what we wanted.) We are now working with Annie on a remodel of our basement. Her attention to detail and space is amazing along with her eye for those details that make a space feel different and special. Highly recommended!

TEASHA SCHMIDT / BASEMENT REMODEL

Annie & Ryan were professional, very responsive, full of great ideas, and brought everything together with great visuals. They convinced a color averse guy to try some new colors & concepts; they worked perfectly. Great experience.

BRIAN LAWRENCE / NORTHRIDGE WEALTH MANAGEMENT OFFICE

"After many years I decided to build a house. The thought of making all the necessary decisions was daunting. The first decision was to hire Wise Design. It definitely was the best decision I made. From assisting with the architectural concepts, fixture and furnishing choices to color schemes, Annie's insight and creative talents helped my home become everything I dreamed of. From beginning to the end, Annie was friendly, responsive and a delight to work with."

CARRIE GENUALDI / DALLAS CUSTOM HOME

Highly recommended! Annie and her team did an excellent job helping us with our living, dining, and kitchen remodel. They were professional and helped create a look that fit our style. Every step along the way, from the 3D renderings to the finished product, was thought out, timely, and had a personalized touch. We are very happy we went with Wise Design for our project.
