Anna Casa Interiors

When you think of London in terms of a Monopoly board, the most coveted position to be in is with houses or hotels on the purpley-blues of Park Lane or Mayfair. As a relatively new resident of London, I still think of some places in terms of the colour grading that Hasbro gave them; Old Kent Road will never shake that association with murky brown.

A recent trip (in real time) to the purple side of the Monopoly board took me to Anna Casa Interiors in Mayfair the second of Anna Dodonova’s palatial interior design showrooms. It is the most luxurious and elegant, yet homely mock shop; the sort of place you feel like you have to take off your shoes, but can slump into the hand-picked Italian leather sofa with a freshly brewed coffee. The creative vision of Miss Dodonova is seamless, oozing glamour and sophistication.

Here is a lady who has a design degree in her back pocket, and a powerful, thoughtful ability to work classic and timeless pieces to create her clients’ dream homes. Travelling with a keen eye and working with only cream-of-the-crop brands that produce the highest quality pieces of furniture, ensure that with Anna, your home will be the best dressed bricks in town.

A few weeks later came the showroom party with jelly in teacups by Bompass & Parr and plenty of fascinating chat on some beautiful furniture. A rather glamorous affair.

With the age of first-time buyers rising to the 40s, Anna’s services are not in reach of the majority of us living pay-packet-to-pay-packet, scrimping to get ‘on the ladder’, or spending our last tenner on a cheap bottle of plonk. But her showroom and talent is something of an inspiration. If I had endless paper notes with the Queen’s head on, as opposed to some moustachioed bloke, I would take a chance on Anna Dodonova styling my house just right.
