My name is Anna Kullgren. I grew up in Sweden, and eventually settled in the US. As a Scandinavian, my aesthetics reflect clean visual and functional practicality paired with environmental responsibility. I experience the world around me as space defined by color and contrasting textures. I am a functional Tetrachromat with a degree in architecture, and spent years designing interiors before I began designing gardens. I may very well tell you that optimizing your dream for a livable, enjoyable outdoor space will involve changes to your house. I may, and I have.
I am grateful for my time at the Scandinavian Color Institute in Stockholm, and the formative years that followed. First at CCAD (the Columbus College of Art and Design), and later at UC DAAP (University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning). After moving to Oregon in 2005, I immersed myself in Pacific Northwest horticulture and general plant nerd revelry. Whether inside or out, I enjoy guiding clients to see and pursue the full potential of their surroundings. Best of all is when I can help them fuse inside and outside space into a cohesive design that celebrates the spirit of place and reflects its owner’s personality.
