Anna Jacoby specializes in designing rooms for “real people” like you. Her designs not only look beautiful, but they also feel comfortable and work well for her clients and their families.
After years of working on her own home and helping friends with theirs, Anna launched her design business in 2000. Since then, she is delighted to have helped hundreds of clients create functional, livable and beautiful spaces.
Anna studied Interior Design at Ohlone College in Fremont, received her Certification in Redesign through IRIS, and in 2010 she fulfilled the requirements to become a Certified Interior Designer (CID). In 2019, Anna completed the coursework required to become a Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP). She stays current and finds inspiration through independent courses, workshops, trade shows, and conferences.
From 2003-2008 she wrote a bi-weekly column called “Real Life Rooms” which appeared in five Bay Area newspapers, and continues to write a monthly decorating column for the Tri City Voice.
Her own remodeled kitchen was featured in the national magazines, “Women’s Day Specials – Home Remodeling and Makeovers” in June 2006, and “Budget Decorating” in March of 2007. Her work has also been featured in Kitchen & Bath Business Online. She was featured in US Business Review as well in the Fremont Argus, and participated in the Business of Design Telesummit as a presenter. She has also presented workshops at various national and regional conferences, and has taught classes to both consumers and design professionals.
Anna serves on the Ohlone College Interior Design Program Advisory Committee and is a member of National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). She previously served as Executive Director of IRIS (Interior Redesign Industry Specialists). She lives with her husband (who was her high school sweetheart) in their empty nest in Fremont, California.
