You may be surprised to see where interior designer
Annie Smith (formerly Annie Brahler) now resides
since it is such a huge departure, style-wise, from
the beyond shabby chic mansion in Illinois
which she and her firm Euro Trash made famous.

Her current home is what she calls
"a floating treehouse."

Let's revisit the Euro country dining room
of her prior Beaux Arts home
before we tour the new St. Louis digs.

farmhouse-y country paradise right here.)

Annie Brahler is now Annie Smith, and she
and husband Charles Smith live in a unique midcentury
modern style home near St. Louis, where Euro Trash
is now based.

1949 St. Louis home of architect Robert Elkington
The home was being marketed as a tear down,
but Brahler and Smith learned it was designed by
an important architect (Robert Elkington) and built
in 1949 on three wooded acres.

The interior design inside?

Get ready for:
High contrast glamour
Midcentury Modern design
Taxidermy décor
Metal kitchen cabinets painted black
Chapman vintage chandelier
Grey-veined Danby marble
A vintage airplane engine
Jonathan Adler sofa and chairs
1940s cast brass deer
A bifurcated table sliced from a tree

What makes this design project even more amazing
are the existing photos of this 1949 Robert Elkington
home back in the day we can contrast with
its updated design today.
