About ANJO Designs

Often called the “Owners Rep” ANJO Designs is involved in the design process through the construction phase from start to finish, offering stellar communication, laughter, and competency along the way. They believe in improving their client’s quality of life by building and renovating beautiful and efficient spaces to enhance their lives. With nearly ten years of experience in doing just that, they are certain to empower you with resources, design options, and efficient implementations… on every project.


Owner and founder Amy Laner, a Colorado native, graduated from Colorado State University studying both Interior Design and Construction Management believing that you can’t be successful in one without the other. Her strong passion for the Northern Colorado communities leads Amy to remain active in local educational initiatives as well as industry associations to inspire those involved in the field.

Amy serves as a master resource for her clients in both remodel and new construction projects. Understanding her client’s needs, passions, timeline, and budget allows her, as a designer, to serve clients with focused attention and inspiration. She is extremely familiar with the construction elements in the industry, giving those she works with peace of mind when the implementation breaks ground. Amy strives to present ANJO Designs as a “boutique” brand in the design community, allowing her to work closely with clients, executing every detail of their design dreams.


Connie Schimmels leads all Staging initiatives for ANJO Designs. After graduating from Biola University with a degree in Psychology, she began a career in social work. She enjoyed years of working and growing her family, managing the home, and all those living in it. Opportunity came knocking from Colorado State University, where Connie held various roles in the external relations department, and her passion for staging and home décor grew alongside her work at CSU.

Connie was thrilled to join our ANJO Designs team to share her five years of experience in partnering with homeowners, realtors, and builders to prepare small and large homes for the market. Her love for staging can best be explained by her interest, as a young girl, in re-decorating and organizing spaces. She developed a strong passion for making spaces look better and has assisted family, friends, and clients in their homes ever since.
