Anne Haas, Co-Owner
Anne’s background in graphic design really shines in our numerous projects with each client’s personal photos. We often guide our clients to showcase their proud family moments in a gallery wall that reflects their personality. Anne is our photo and art guru, and often takes the lead in creative direction. She enjoys putting pattern and color together, and helps our clients to guide decisions that let their homes really be their proud moment, regardless of the budget. She is responsive and collaborative.
Jen Tucker, Co-Owner
Jen uses her background with furniture sales and home organization to ensure that every dollar is spent wisely when it comes to those big purchases. She can educate the client on the value of one item over another. We often take a “high/low” approach to design :: splurging on some items while thrifting on others. Jen also enjoys helping in color selection and pulling a room together with accessories, rugs, and personal items.
We are both energetic and creative women on a mission :: to help you get the most out of your living space. We are task-oriented, and open to lots of ideas and budget scenarios, but we are also opinionated and will help you to make decisions.
A common question :: Why the name? We wanted to riff off of some of our favorite business names that evoke a home or a neighborly feeling, because our business is centered around the home. While we were coming up with possible names for our new business in spring 2012, the Dogwood trees were blooming in northern Virginia, and we decided that would be symbolic for us. 1970 is a special year for both of us – we were both born six weeks apart in 1970!
