meet anne


 Anne, or known to many as “Onnie” has spent much of her professional career working in the field of public health and health system transformation. However, she has always had an eye and passion for interior design; renovating multiple homes and often helping others uncover the possibilities within their own homes. It is after years of repeated encouragement from family and friends that she is launching b.inspired lifestyle, an innovative and affordable home décor, gift and lifestyle store in the Village of Scotia, New York.

Anne grew up in Scotia but lived in the Seattle area for many years and loved the vibrant community she grew to call home-with its endless cafés, shops and locally sourced product. Returning to the Capital District and embarking upon a major home renovation, Anne honored her love of the West Coast, blending a relaxed Boho-Chic and Midcentury Modern approach to her home and lifestyle. It was through this latest home renovation, sourcing unique product at affordable prices, that Anne decided to launch her own home, gift and lifestyle store. She is thrilled to bring her unique approach to home décor and design to the Capital District Region creating a “shop small” “shop local” experience in the Village she was raised.
