Creating Personalized Spaces with Ana Cummings
Written by Jessica Antony – July 17th, 2019
Helping people make the most of their homes, use design to create solutions for their needs, and create spaces that allow you to room to grow are the things that drive and inspire us at EQ3. We are proud of the opportunities we get to work with talented interior designers, and love being able to showcase their work! We chatted with Ana Cummings of ANA Interiors, Ltd. about her design practise, her passion for helping people create rooms that bring them joy, and her advice for those looking to unlock their home’s potential this summer.
Tell us about how you got into interior design:
I have always known that I was meant to create spaces as I have been doing that for friends and family since I was a teenager. It was only after I had pursued different degrees in university, lived abroad, and started a family that I finally embarked on my own personal journey of fulfillment by finally jumping into the design world with both feet in 2006. I have not looked back ever since.
What makes your approach to design unique?
What makes my approach to interior design unique is that I look at spaces holistically. I try to envision how each of our senses would experience the space. I imagine how every element inside the space would interact with one another. My goal is to illicit such a joyful spark within the client that they never want to leave their space. I often hear that a lot from my clients, so it has become a part of my design mantra. A home is a very emotional entity and I cherish that. Every day I’m honoured that people allow me to get to know them well enough to create their own personal sanctuary. Good design doesn’t come out of the blue, it comes from getting to know your client: their wants, wishes, needs, desires, and dreams and putting that all together to satisfy their mandate for their space.
