Interior designer Anna Kalnars has enjoyed running her design business Infinite Design Devon based in Kingsbridge, a pretty market town at the head of the Salcombe estuary, since 2005. Her completed projects include large and small residential projects for private clients, bespoke commercial projects and design collaborations with architects and developers.
Anna loves to work with local professional and craftspeople in the Salcombe, Dartmouth, Thurlestone and Kingsbridge area, who are all known and trusted by her, and this helps her deliver the highest quality of design services with great attention to detail, right from the first contact to final delivery of the completed project. This sets her projects far apart from the average renovation or development and ensures a high level of client satisfaction.
Training & professional development
After training initially as a lawyer, Anna specialised in human resources, management and television production with the BBC in London during the 1980's and 90's, before moving to Devon as the South West's first Film Commissioner. Her passion for architecture and design led to a full-time Foundation degree in Interior Design (South Devon College & Plymouth University) where she gained a rare Distinction. Anna plays an active role in her professional organisation, the British Institute of Interior Design, and her local Kingsbridge & Salcombe Chamber of Trade. She continues her professional development BIID, RIBA and CIAT accredited CPD.
Cost efficient design & sustainable design
Designing with cost efficient solutions in mind and 'cutting the cloth' according to budget, are high on Infinite Design Devon's agenda. This approach is appreciated by clients particularly in the current economic climate. At the core of our design philosophy is a concern for sustainable design and whole-life costs of materials and products. In 2012 Anna joined The Green Register, the UK's leading training organisation promoting sustainable design for professionals in the design and construction industries.
