Welcome to Anna Rode' Designs! I hope you will enjoy your visit to my interior design web site. As you will see, although I am located in San Diego, I've been an interior designer for homeowners and small businesses in Southern California for over 30 years, and am the owner of Anna Rode' Designs. Whether your personal taste is for ultra modern, traditional, or anything in between, my services will enhance the appearance, safety, and value of your home.
Wow! We cannot believe what a transformation Coleen performed on our La Jolla property. She turned an '80's era "fixer-upper" into an amazingly modern, casual, and sophisticated beach house. Reviewing the "before and after" photos on her web site and videos is testimony to Coleen's imagination, creativeness, technical skill, and detail management. AAA+!" Robin and Tony, El Paso, Texas
"I talked to three interior designers before I chose Coleen. She was the only one who asked me the right questions, and really listened to my answers. She has since done two houses for us! I call her for every project, no matter how small or large." Sandra, Rancho Santa Fe, California.
This portfolio video, entitled "Before and After" is a quick tour of many of Coleen's interior designs involving a variety of styles. It covers both remodels and new construction, and home sizes ranging from small condominiums, modest homes, and large residences.
For more interior design videos, please see our Video Portfolio page.
"Dear Coleen - Another day of gratitude for the many aesthetic contributions you created in my home. You are truly a gifted person and designer. Please accept this most overdue message of appreciation for all that you have positively contributed to my life! Thank you!" - Karen, San Diego
I have a great following of clients who appreciate not only my interior design services, but also my advice concerning quality living. Whatever your economic status, I will help you achieve the comfort and satisfaction you deserve.
"Thanks...Coleen...the colors are yummy, very bold and I love them. They have finished the office, put a little on the kitchen and family room walls and are just starting on the kitchen nook. Very exciting!" C.M., San Diego
"I have been walking on cloud 9 because I am so happy to have a color plan for my home. It has been 5 years of wondering and making mistakes. I just wish I had found you years ago!" B.B, San Diego
"I was beside myself trying to choose colors! I was going nuts, my painter was starting to hate me, and the guys down at Frazee's were dreading me coming back again. Finally, they told me to call you, and all my problems were solved. Thank you so much!!!" E.S. Fairbanks Ranch
It's true: many of the people at Frazee's, Sherwin-Williams, and Dunn Edwards recommend me to both professional painters and homeowners to help choose colors for their projects.
Whether you have a new home, a remodel project, a foreclosed property to fix up, or a home for sale that needs prepping or staging, I will make a huge difference in the quality and value of your home. I will also make sure you avoid expensive mistakes. For a few quick samples of both new homes and remodels, visit our Before and After (and Before and After II) pages. And when you have the time, you will enjoy exploring the hundreds of design examples, including kitchen designs, all through my web site.
"I have not had a chance to tell you how much I LOVE our new furniture! The dining room chairs are absolutely perfect! My sister couldn't believe how different the furniture looks in the new fabric. You would not believe how great the couch looks - I found a throw and some pillows that tie it in with the room perfectly. I just love it! The chairs in the leopard and gold are so much fun. And the chandelier looks great! Thank you so much for helping us add to our home in such a beautiful fashion. We really appreciate you every day!" Joanne, Carmel Valley, San Diego
I will be adding slideshows and videos to my site on a regular basis, so you can see examples of my work.

"Hi Coleen, I picked up a sample of the " Deep Garnet" today and you could not have chosen a more beautiful color for the kitchen and living room accent wall......it's perfect!!!! It is rich, elegant, warm and looks fabulous with the other colors you picked out, I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for taking the extra time to help find the perfect shade, I love, love ,love it, and can't wait to have it all completed. Blessings, (T.D., Santee, CA)"
Speaking of color, 15 photos of my work have been chosen to illustrate a book, published in 2006. Titled "1001 Ideas for Color and Paint", by Emma Callery, this 240 page book is full of color ideas and suggestions. I am the only designer from the San Diego area to be included in this worldwide publication. The book is available at home improvement centers, bookstores, and Amazon.
I've been honored to have one of my recent kitchen designs featured in the magazine "Signature Kitchens and Baths", shown here. Click on the photo to see the page with the article and larger picture.
