Los Angeles native, Annette studied design at UCLA and then worked in the furniture and home textile industries, where she cultivated her passion for rich fabrics, classic prints and vibrant color. In 1994, she put her artistry and skill into action by launching Annette Tatum Collections, her home décor business, and designing a line of elegant bedding. In 2008, Annette wrote her first book, The Well Dressed Home. Throughout it all, Annette worked as an interior designer, blending sophistication, modernity, comfort and luxury to create her distinctive look. Her inimitable style and expertise have led her to design rooms for celebrity clients and appear in several magazines.
When she’s not at home with her husband and four children in Santa Monica, Annette can be found in her Santa Monica studio working on countless design projects. For her, home décor is a passion, every room is an opportunity.
