Unusual Designs provides a professional and creative outlet for designing any space just the way you like it quickly and easily. From custom blinds and shades to shutters and drapery, there is an abundance of unusual and unique designs from which to choose.
Owner Anne Fitch has helped serve the Hampton Roads community with her unique style and designs for the last 22 years. As an expert in the world of interior design, Fitch uses her creativity and talent to personalize and transform a room into the space of her clients’ dreams.
When asked what prompted her into the stylish business of interior design, Fitch says, “Working with the art of colors and textures really speaks to me, and I want to help people achieve what they can’t do on their own. I just love meeting people and being able to help them. It can be a challenge to figure out what people want and how to put it together. It’s kind of like a puzzle.”
With the revolutionary development of the Internet over the last two decades, this has posed a great challenge for Fitch and her customers. “People think they can buy everything on the Internet, but they never see it, touch it or feel it, and that’s one of the most important aspects of interior decorating,” says Fitch.
According to Fitch, texture and color are two of the most important elements when it comes to interior decorating which you can’t see or feel from a computer. “The Internet can be your friend, but it can also be your enemy. With so much information out there, people often think they’re experts because of what they have read; however sometimes you have to experience it and go through it to get what you need,” says Fitch.
Fitch goes on to say that materials and designs don’t always look the same on the Internet as they do in person, and to have the right space, you have to have the right elements. When asked what style of art she likes most, Fitch says, “For me personally, I love transitional art as well as my textures in window treatments and artistic patterns in my lamps and rugs, which usually help to tie the whole room together — it just has to speak to me.” With one of her favorite magazines, Architectural Digest, Fitch maintains a passion for art and design.
With some of her most unusual designs consisting of an entire room of purple to a tropical tanning salon, Unusual Designs can help transform a space into any client’s desire. Fitch says what she enjoys most about her business is “Working with the different textures and colors to create something unique and unusual, something you wouldn’t typically see anywhere else.”
When she is not designing and creating in her office, Fitch enjoys planting flowers, going to the beach, traveling to visit relatives, visiting vineyards and attending local art shows. She especially appreciates spending time with her family and taking care of her 94-year-old mother with the help of her brothers and sister. Whether it’s reading, watching movies on Netflix or documentaries that help Fitch expand her knowledge, she is always ready to meet and greet new friends.
