Principal Designer + CEO
Annie is a recovering art historian who developed her eye and aesthetic sensibilities studying 20th-century art and working in some of the nation’s top museums.
Annie graduated from Milton Academy and studied English and Art History at the University of Pennsylvania. She went on to earn an M.A. in Art History from Williams College. Her career in museums included an internship at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and senior positions at Philadelphia’s Rosenbach Museum & Library, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian.
After coursework at the Corcoran College of Art + Design (now part of GW University), she took her love of art and color – and her training in matters of scale, balance, and proportion – and made the shift to interior design.
An Associate Member of ASID, the American Society of Interior Designers, Annie’s design work and insights have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine, HGTV Magazine, and other local and national publications. NBC4 has featured Annie and her work several times since 2021.
Annie lives in Woodley Park with her husband, twin daughters, dog, and turtle (who doesn’t say much, but she’s a riot at parties). Her favorite color used to be yellow, but now it’s grassy green.
AMY OLIVER BEAUPRÉ
With an English degree from Wellesley College and an M.A. in Art History from Williams College, Amy has more than 20 years of professional experience as an art historian, fine art appraiser, and interior design consultant.
She developed a love for the historic homes of the South and New England during a youth spent in both Louisiana and Vermont. Amy’s design philosophy is that cheerful, inviting interior spaces can be achieved with smart planning, strategic purchasing, and adding the personal elements that bring character and soul to your home.
Amy and her family recently moved from Takoma Park to Vermont, and she continues to work for Annie Elliott Design full-time. Her favorite color is robin’s egg blue.

After studying art history at Brown University and decorative art at the Bard Graduate Center, Leigh established a 20-year career in the DC auction world.
As long-time Director of European Furniture and Decorative Arts at Weschler’s and Decorative Arts Specialist at The Potomack Company, Leigh’s hands-on experience with antiques has given her an appreciation for quality in construction and design, as well as a severe allergy to particleboard.
Leigh lives in AU Park with her husband, daughter and two foster-fail cats. Her favorite color is raspberry pink.
A former occupational therapist with an M.S. from Tufts University, Laura is launching her second career with a degree in interior design.
Laura grew up in New Hampshire and has landed in D.C. after making her way around the country for work and for fun. She has always had a love of art, architecture and interiors, and she hopes someday to combine her two careers to design for the aging population.
Laura lives with her husband and cat Anna Beth (although she loves all animals, especially Tilly!) in Northern Virginia. Her favorite color is Aegean blue.
