Annie Houston Liddle is the founder and principal of Annie Liddle Design, LLC, a boutique interior design company based out of Chicago’s North Shore. Annie’s designed interiors are classic, colorful, creatively textured and welcoming spaces that are tailored for her client’s lifestyle. Throughout her more than 10 years in the design industry, Annie has collaborated with clients in Illinois, South Carolina, Florida, Washington D.C., Colorado, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
Prior to forming Annie Liddle Design, she was an Associate Designer with Jeannie Balsam Interiors (JBI) in Winnetka, IL. During her six years with the firm, Annie was involved in all aspects of the design and management process and was project lead for numerous clients. Before joining JBI, she managed designer showrooms for Ebanista in Chicago and Denver and Samuel & Sons Passementerie in Chicago. Annie also worked for two prominent luxury design firms, Nate Berkus Interiors and Frank Ponterio Interior Design.
Annie’s appreciation and mastery of textiles, combined with her comprehension of scale, and her rigorous project management skills, distinguishes her from the norm. She is continually inspired by past and ongoing travels including time spent living abroad. Annie has been fortunate enough to have traveled throughout Italy, Morocco, France, Spain, Greece, the U.K. and Cayman Islands. Kiawah, South Carolina and the Rocky Mountains in Colorado are Annie’s favorite places in the US to draw inspiration from while relaxing with family or friends. Her latest wanderlust trip was to Mexico City where she was enriched by the vivid colors, unique textures, historical culture, and the vivacious spirit of the people.
A native of Winnetka, Annie graduated from New Trier High School before earning a B.A. degree from the University of Michigan. She then worked in the business sector in Washington, DC as a Marketing Specialist. Annie returned to Chicago to obtain a degree from Harrington College of Design and pursue her passion. With her wealth of experience, she has now come full circle bringing her creative flare, vast knowledge, and expertise to all her design projects.
When not collaborating with clients, Annie enjoys golfing, tennis, traveling, drinking an occasional Aperol Spritz ;) and spending quality time with her husband Ryan and daughter Reese.
