About

As a serial entrepreneur with a multi-dimensional background, Annie’s core mission has always been the same: helping others. At 10 years old, Annie helped her little sister pick out a new paint color for her bedroom – but she didn’t stop there. One color choice spiraled into a full bedroom makeover, with artwork collages on the walls, an overhaul of the furniture layout, and the creation of a creative, fun space for her to share with her beloved toys. This is Annie’s first interior decorating memory, and her passion has only grown ever since.
In 2013, when she bought her first home, she completely redesigned the interior. Her kitchen reno was even featured on Houzz.

Annie Marchetta

Owner & Design Principal

In 2017

Annie

traded cold, snowy days in New Hampshire for the North Carolina sunshine. She built and designed a semi-custom home in Raleigh – and that was the experience that finally solidified her deep passion for beautiful, functional, inspiring interiors and home spaces.

Annie launched her design business in 2019

Her first professional project was helping her best friend renovate an investment property in downtown Cary. Since then, her passion for interior design has only strengthened, and her mission to help others has expanded into helping them find joy and peace in their everyday living spaces.

 

Spotted Interior Design has now completed over 60 projects for 48 clients. We have designed or managed $5M worth of kitchen and bathroom updates, full-home renovations, staging, decorating, and space planning projects – and so much more.
