About Annie Ballantine Designs

Annie Ballantine Designs is a full-service residential interior design firm.  All of the services offered are flexible to meet a client’s needs.  We believe that interior design should be affordable for everyone and that is why we have services starting at just $145.00.  We would love to talk to you about your design needs and tailor our services to your project needs.

Who is Annie?

In 2005 I started Annie Ballantine Designs with a can-do attitude and a deep passion for design.  While some design services can be a luxury I also believe that basic good design is a necessity and must be affordable.  I always tailor my services to fit your needs and your budget.  Most importantly, I want the design process to be enjoyable and fun from the very beginning of the project!  My goal is that you can relax, have fun, and let me worry about the details or your remodel, renovation, or revamp!

As a child I spent hours and hours designing houses and furniture for my dolls and toys.  When I researched interior design as a career I was tickled when I discovered that I could actually turn this interest into a paying job.  Since then I have studied studio arts, art history, fashion design, architecture, and interior design.  I have two degrees: one in interior design and the second in art. I am a member of professional organizations for interior design professionals.  When I am not working on my client projects I am teaching as an adjunct professor at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Any free time is dedicated to gardening, reading, travel, and relaxation with my husband and fur-kid.

Fees

All design services are tailored to your specific needs so pricing will vary depending on your needs.  We do offer services starting at a flat fee of $145.00.  When we discuss your design needs we will discuss which pricing structure makes most sense in your situation.

Some projects will be billed on an hourly basis and others may be a flat fee.  The hourly design fee is $90.00/hour.  A typical one-room project takes about 15-20 hours of design time from start to finish.  Time spent on a project varies drastically and depends on the project scope and size.

The entire process should be fun and not stressful.  We will discuss cost in detail before starting any project so you know exactly what to expect.
