Anna Cuthbert's profile

About Me

It’s lovely to meet you! I am delighted that, in your search for an interior designer, you are considering my talents for your home which is, of course, one of the biggest investments you will ever make in your lifetime. In a nutshell, my designs are like snowflakes with no two ever being the same. Each of my bespoke projects speaks to your personal aesthetic, goals for use, lifestyle and preferred colour palette.

Nothing is ever forced upon my clients from budget to concept, to timeline. You will never be handed a completed room design with everything selected according to my opinions and preferences for your space. That’s just not how I work! Rather, from start to finish my room designs are a fluid, organic, process with client input every step of the way. This is indeed a unique approach to interior design but with clients returning year after year to craft areas in their beloved homes – tells me I am doing something very right.

With my decades of experience delivering bespoke interior design projects in Auckland, as a customer, you can leverage my relationships with retailers and contractors to secure the best prices for materials and services. Over time, I have hand-picked professionals in construction and manufacturing to work their magic in your home. On your own, selections for furniture, fabrics, flooring and more can seem limited and over-priced in Auckland. I invite you to use my savvy to open up a whole new world of choices you would not otherwise have at your fingertips.

So much of what makes me a unique and recognized interior designer in the region comes from my experience honing my skills to make my processes streamlined, efficient and always on point.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Our Services

We have known and used Anna for many years. She organised the design and manufacture of our new kitchen and two upstairs bathrooms for our family home. She provided advice on furniture and cushions for our family room and did the same for our beach house including curtains. We have been very happy working with Anna. She has good ideas and attends to things promptly. We will continue to use her.

We were just a little bit worried that Anna might be too overqualified for the interior design and fit-out of our small Consulate for Mongolia here in Newmarket, Auckland. Any such worries were unfounded. Anna provided outstanding service and advice, appropriate for our budget. Our little office is much more stylish and enjoyable to work in than we could ever have anticipated, while the cost was much less than expected – both in terms of the cost of the furniture and fit out and Anna’s fees. We would recommend her to any organisation – large, medium, small or, like us, tiny.

Matthew H

Very happy with the service received from Anna at Cuthbert Interiors. Anna listens to your requirements including budget and offers great ideas and then manages all suppliers to ensure the best result.

Our project was a complete refurbish with a limited budget. We are delighted with the outcome, I couldn’t have done without her.

Totally recommend Anna.

Ali W

Anna has created beautiful spaces in our home on a number of occasions over the past 8 years. She takes all the stress out of interior design choices and we have been very happy with all the results – from designing functional, aesthetic cabinetry and workspaces to soft furnishings that just make you want to spend time in each space. Anna listens to the brief and budget requirements, and has great contacts within the industry with reliable trades people. We would not hesitate to recommend Anna.

Emma G

We employed Anna to help us with furniture and layout choices for remodelling our large open plan living room. Anna was very quick to see how significant improvements could be made, but more importantly almost immediately identified our own preferences and was able to work up something spectacular within an acceptable budget. She kept us well briefed about timeframes and potential issues around those and was able to maintain our optimism about getting a great result despite all the curved supply chain balls being thrown at us by Covid. We were particularly pleased by the strong connections she had with local manufacturers. The project will continue for some time yet, and Anna has made it clear that we can continue to rely on her support whenever it is needed. We recommend Anna highly for anyone wanting a better, colourful and appealing use of space.

Mark L

I really appreciated the initial & follow-up communications from Anna & her excellent timekeeping. I was a bit nervous, not knowing quite what to expect when she came to my house. Annas lovely manner however soon put me at ease & she came up with some really great ideas – ones that I certainly wouldn’t have thought of myself. She has a keen eye for colour & detail. Definitely recommend her !

Charlie C

Anna has created the most wonderful kitchen laundry dining room and powder room far superior to anything I imagined. She guided or should I say counselled us through decisions my husband and I found difficult to agree on. An incredible ability to enhance every aspect of the building and design. We now have the most modern functional family area which we are throughly enjoying. Although our house is very old she has managed to incorporate modern with old beautifully. Could not be happier.

Kathy S

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anna. Anna had exceptional product, textile and art knowledge. She really helped me create a reflection of my personal style. She offered an excellent array of choices and was very good at listening to our requirements. Approachable at all times. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and Anna has a great relationship with her suppliers. She was aware of the need to create a practical and stylish space for our busy family. I recommend her highly and unreservedly.

Jane M

We employed Anna to help with our house renovation which included a new kitchen, bathrooms and self-contained sleepout.
She has good ideas with colors. Her experience and contacts with others in the industry helped made the project much less stressful.
Any issues were attended to promptly with excellent communication.
We are enjoying living in the new spaces which are functional and look great.

Kristine N

Highly recommend Anna, she is a great listener and quickly understood how to make the most of the different spaces we had in our newly built house.

Anna assisted with the overall interior design concept of the living and dinning room, and her sourcing of our pendant lights was invaluable.

She provided advice on creating an amazing ‘powder room’ and put together the tiles, wallpaper, basin, gave advice on lighting and colour and result is a gorgous little room with a ‘Wow” factor.

We have engaged Anna previously for an apartment in Auckland and this house was the second project that we had her involved with. Absolutely thrilled with the result.

Lesley P

Anna was amazing to work with. She knew exactly what would suit our family-room area, in keeping with our own personal style and budget. There was never any pressure to make decisions or purchases and she was always friendly and obliging, making it all so easy! Thank you Anna.
