How many years do you have left?

Philanthropic Stewardship of resources and relationships should hallmark your days, not fussing over sofa choices with someone who doesn’t understand who you are and why you care.

Couture Chateau LLC brings a compelling track record and global mindset enabling individuals and families to ESTABLISH and STEWARD legacy minded philanthropic lifestyles. We address property and design concerns, generational nuances and design practical solutions and SYSTEMS that can be maintained either by Couture Chateau LLC’s network or yourself, your Family Office, Trust or Board network.

Interiors Designed with your Lifestyle Goals.

Interiors Designed with your Lifestyle Goals and Use Needs Addressed

We take great care to understand who you are, what the call on your individual legacy is and construct excellent lifestyle design solutions for you and your generations.

We believe LEGACY BUILDING includes property, homes and land. Poor choices in any one of those areas divides families and destroys inheritance. Poor choices in design of said property ruins a lifetime spent establishing legacy over a piece of art or grandmother’s side table.

Founder Ann McDonald (white jacket) lives what she designs. She and her team bring a unique ability to design macro and micro solutions to suit your lifestyle needs. From creating spaces to handle staff, large events and flexible living to city flats for next gen grandchildren, Couture Chateau understands.

Our SOLUTIONS solidify generational legacy and strengthen familial impact on a global scale.

Homes, Property and Land distinguish significant individuals and families from those without lasting legacy. Couture Chateau LLC SOLUTIONS customized design decisions so your legacy is well established into the second, third and fourth generations. We address main homes, investment properties, preserves, benefactor lands and next generation city flats.

Don’t allow poverty minded design decisions to steal your legacy out from under your philanthropic minded trust. Your well designed luxury legacy mindset is as critical to your legacy as your financial advisers succession plan. More so as property is often the bulk of wealth transfer among generations.


If you want to dabble with us on the design for one of your properties, we delight to engage and serve you. We delight to teach, equip and empower you.
