Well… wasn’t exactly in the plan to move to DC to open a new store in the middle of a global pandemic. But here I am, trying to be patient until Anna Kemper Atelier can finally open in Phase II of the reopening of Washington, DC. I am so excited to meet all of you, and I will do everything possible to make sure you feel as safe and comfortable as possible when you come to the store to shop or to meet with me for a design consultation. If anything, this pandemic has taught us that many things are beyond our control and that we must improvise and adapt to new realities until things return to normal.

Here are some of the measures in place to maximize your comfort and sense of wellbeing when you come to shop:

  • All employees will wear masks and wash hands often.
  • All high touch-points will be sanitized constantly throughout the day.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be offered to all shoppers upon entering the store. We encourage you to use them.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at several points throughout the store for your use.
  • Social distancing and customer capacity limitations will be observed.
  • The store will be sanitized thoroughly after close of business each day.

I want to offer my sincere gratitude in advance for becoming a customer of Anna Kemper Atelier. I truly look forward to meeting you all and developing lasting relationships with my customers. I also want to thank you in advance for supporting small business. Now, more than ever, a sense of coming together as a community to support one another is of the utmost importance for all of our wellbeing.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me personally at Until we meet in person, I wish you

All the best,
