We prefer the clean, contemporary feel that is popular in California, but it’s in my blood to respond to objects that are old and have a story
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Lindsay Brier’s Pacific Heights home stands out with its “California-cool” aesthetic in the San Francisco neighborhood known for its classic architecture. While this 1920’s-era Edwardian-style apartment building, featuring original moldings and high ceilings, looks formal and sophisticated, Lindsay has made it her own by incorporating comfortable furniture and fun flea-market accessories. “We prefer the clean, contemporary feel that is popular in California, but it’s in my blood to respond to objects that are old and have a story,” explains Lindsay, whose mother owned an antiques shop throughout Lindsay’s childhood. “Having antiques in a room really gives it personality and soul.” While this Edwardian flat boasts the easy elegance of Northern California living, Lindsay has managed to side step the urge to be too casual. Lindsay adeptly plays up the formalness of the architecture by choosing tight-back upholstered pieces and playfully mixes them with unexpectedly youthful art and splashes of color in her accessories. Lindsay is commended for designing a truly relaxed and livable space for herself and her family while maintaining the apartments turn-of-the-20th-century Victorian charm.
Brier founded Anyon Interior Design in 2006 and her current ventures include opening a home décor boutique, Anyon Atelier, on Sacramento Street later this month. This area is known as one of San Francisco’s best streets to find distinctive local shops, antique galleries and eateries. Already a destination for home décor, Sacramento Street welcomes Anyon Interior Design and their distinct design sensibility. In addition to her busy residential client roster that includes a Pacific Heights remodel and the opening of her atelier, Lindsay is also redesigning a series of rooms for the Kenwood Inn in the idyllic Sonoma Valley.
