Interior Design
for a Natural and Timeless Bespoke Home

Annabel Bertie Design

ABOUT

As an interior designer, Annabel's two passions and areas of expertise encompass:  conserving, restoring and updating period buildings for functional residential use and promoting natural healthy sustainable living within the home environment.  Her 18 years experience includes working with both town and country historical architectural interiors, always respecting the character, proportion and charm of any building style, tailoring and personalising each house to the way her individual clients like to live. 


Having battled in the past with a chronic health condition, Annabel has therefore now made it her mission to advocate the benefits of a healthier home through the use of natural sustainable ecological products, the reduction of chemicals and toxic substances in fabrics and furnishings and the support of local craftsmanship.  She brings these values to her work as much as possible, and is the official UK Ambassador for Wellness Within Your Walls - a US based organisation that champions these principles. 


Annabel's projects include a wide range of historical period buildings, both commercial and private commissions including Dumfries House Estate and The Prince’s Foundation who are renowned for building traditional sustainable Healthy Housing for Communities throughout the world. 

Annabel grew up in South West Scotland and divides her time between there and the

South of England.
