This expansive 1928 Tudor estate was originally designed by renowned architect Frederick Reimers. Anyon was charged with cosmetic renovation throughout the home and remodel, in partnership with Graff Architects.
Lindsay Anyon Brier has an innate talent for beautifully curating rooms and environments, which is evidenced in her well-appointed San Francisco store and the high-profile homes she has designed.
The child of an antique shop owner and a real estate developer, Lindsay grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area enamored with art and design. Her niche is a contemporary look informed by classic aesthetics, but she approaches design as a conversation.
This house sits on a gorgeous, quintessential, tree-lined street in Piedmont, San Francisco. 'It originally had bland, outdated interiors but our client wanted their family home to be fun and really had a sense of adventure about the design,' says Lindsay.
'They are a blended Brady Bunch-like family, so we created multiple play spaces for children of various ages and interests.'
We talk to Lindsay Anyon Brier about the design project.
'I loved how the powder room turned out with the “Swirl” wallpaper by Robert Crowder,' says Lindsay. 'We restored an Asian chest and lacquered a pagoda style mirror in a dark green. The brass fixtures by Waterworks really complete the look.'
'The dining room walls were a fun collaboration with artist Willem Racke. He hand-applied plaster to create an ombre-effect in varying shades of taupe to match the linen drapery by Romo/The Black Edition.'
'Another favourite piece of mine is the antique Francis Elkins floor lamp in the breakfast room,' says Lindsay. 'The custom table was designed through my interior design company.'
'The client is a collector of Asian art work. The green, neutral and black palette complemented these works in the living room.'
This sun room was created especially for the children to entertain themselves with arts and crafts.
The children had a lot of say in the design of their rooms. Here a signed Stephen Curry jersey takes pride of place.
'Inspired by Scandinavian design, the floor boards were stripped and left bare, and the ceiling was panelled in a white wash finish,' recalls Lindsay. 'Different areas were created for a multitude of uses – teenage hang out lounge, guest coffee bar, home office, gym, and a cosy sleepover space.'
The clients were heavily influenced by Asian studies and art, which has been highlighted throughout the home.
