Linda Horning Horning Linda

, an artist and decorative painter based in Northern CA,

creates incredible, bespoke work in residential, hospitality and commercial design that spans over three decades. She is constantly breaking new ground with her one of a kind designs and has been featured numerous times in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase, in the exquisite courtyard within the Getty Residence, and numerous high-end interior design projects across the US. Her sought after innovative designs and unique style showcase how “fine art is being reimagined�.

Speaking with the SF Design Magazine Editors, Horning describes how her design education and artistic skill started in primary school. She clearly remembers the day her sister set up an easel in their room which captured her imagination. It forever altered her destiny and started her on the path towards drawing and painting, culminating in a formal education with multiple degrees in fine art. It grew into a lifelong career and blossomed into a passion for the decorative arts that is still going strong today.

degrees of client involvement during the design process, depending on the personalities and project requirements. But the best projects are like a love affair. There’s an excitement at the beginning, a longing to see the relationship come to life. My favorite projects are the ones that challenge me, push me to the edge of my skill. But no matter the project, communicating to make sure things are progressing and going in the right direction is essential. While I love and appreciate when a client trusts me to make creative decisions, I prefer their involvement. At the end of the day, what the client wants is the most important part, it’s about giving them something useful and hopefully something they truly love. It’s what drives me every day.” For Horning, there is no love affair or adventure that is more exciting than participating in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase House. It’s always a collaboration with talented people whose creative energy and demands provide a pressure-cooker of truly spectacular results. Says Horning “It brings

Living and working out of her San Francisco design studio, Horning’s decorative painting and sculpting designs include multimedia applications in clay, paint, and metals. One of her very first projects involved being a sculptor at an amusement park, where she was tasked with designing and sculpting giant ice cream cones and the occasional hillbilly, all out of clay. It was magical when she delivered the final product and truly helped launch her career. While working as a house painter early on, Horning remarks that “What I learned to love about painting houses is that it gave me a foundation and an understanding of materials, surface preparation and compatibility, experience working with other trades, and the fundamental understanding that my contribution was part of a larger whole.” She still remembers working with other artists, as a professional house painter - where the company’s tag line was: “Picasso Housepainting, a Masterpiece in Every Job”. For Horning, this philosophy is as true today as it was when she first started. She maintains this ideal and starts each project with this mission - to create a masterpiece! When asked more about her process and how she is able to create her custom designs, Horning’s approach states that “Every client is different. There are varying

forth an impressive outpouring of improvisation, talent and somehow, as if by magic, a final design that is it altogether spectacular.” Over the last 5 years, she has had extensive experience in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase. From the most recent 2019 House, she worked with Applegate Tran Interiors on their amazing Ballroom, where her work featured a Marie Antoniette sculpture and living 3-dimensional painting. Before that she worked with ~ continued on page 29 ~

D ESIG N ER SP O TL IG HT Growing up within a world of culture in Northern California’s diverse design community, Interior Designer Lindsay Brier is a San Francisco Bay Area native.

Excelling in her education, she studied studio art and art history at Dartmouth College where she received an undergraduate degree. Going on to receive a graduate degree in Interior Architecture and Design from UC Berkeley and also obtained her NCIDQ certificate. Sharing that early on in her career, she worked for Foster Gwin, within their fine art and interior design division. Before opening her own design firm in 2006, which within 6 short years - she expanded and opened an additional retail gallery, Anyon Atelier, in 2013. Lindsay describes her initial new client process as a “get to know you” session. Asking questions about her client’s design goals, wants and needs, to gain a clear understanding about their life and lifestyle. This process of understanding is crucial to building a relationship and helps her to understand how to best achieve a client’s dream space. “I think a lot about the relationship between the site, the proposed architecture, and its usage. It’s also really important for us at Anyon Interior Design to help our clients articulate their own taste. Working with a client is always a collaborative process, to artfully draw out their ideal design.” Explaining that at her busy firm, Anyon Interior Design, which averages 10 projects at any one time. Lindsay still tries to keep a healthy work life balance, sticking to a 4050 hour work week and starting each day with a meditative walk in the Mill Valley Redwoods before her children wake up. Spending these early morning moments, organizing her mind to set her intention for each day. Further sharing how Mondays she and her team focus on internal meetings, whereas, Tuesdays through Thursdays the firm works together to align with clients and attend construction meetings. While Fridays are spent planning and strategize for next week’s work. Handling both large and small projects with many of her clients has led to second jobs and additional projects sprinkled in the mix. Her firms primarily focus is on high-end residential design, with some commercial and hospitality projects. This mix has been both successful and rewarding. Remarking that recently her firm had the pleasure of consulting on a large commercial project for a tech company and working with design giant Gensler. When asked what she loves about what she creates, Lindsay shared “I love how design combines math with the creative process. I also enjoy seeing the collaboration that is created within our team. Equally rewarding is guiding and reassure our clients through the taxing process of remodel and construction. In the end, my hope is that we can improve

their day to day lives through their environment. And that they love the finished product” Being involved with all sides of the business, from the design to the retail gallery - Lindsay wear’s many hats from creative director to operations, all the while inspiring creative freedom for her designers. She shares that although her senior designers are tasked with project management, she stays involved to be both a supportive lead and available to her clients. Further sharing that the design and creative vision comes from within and in collaboration with her incredible team. When asked about some of her proudest moments, she shares “Every Installation!” Explaining how seeing the finished design is what makes her the most excited. “Designing and the creative process - while they can be exhausting, it’s also so rewarding to see a plan come to fruition. Seeing our team work together on a project and especially this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was another great moment in my career. Like any installation, working together but having so much fun while doing it. That’s what makes this whole project worth it.” Expanding on her interests outside of work, Lindsay shares she is a founding member of the Dartmouth Alumni Association for Architecture and Design. And also works to give back in support of First Exposures, a mentoring program for at-risk youth using photography. “We work tirelessly and gladly each year spreading ourselves thin, to gain support, attention and to raise money for their local school’s auctions.” Anyon Atelier’s retail gallery hosts seasonal events and mixers for the design community to help support local and national charities, and most recently the Lonely Whale. When asked if she has time for any hobbies, she shared that outside of running a successful firm and retail business, she is also extremely blessed with a family and that being present for her three little ones, to help them grow is the most rewarding thing. Making time for tennis and yoga and admitting that while she is an “amateur gardener”, she gets satisfaction and enjoyment working outside with her family in her home garden.

Interior Designer Chris Eskra has always had a passion for design from a young age. As it turns out, it was a second career for him as he began his work life in the business field. He spent 10 years working for a small company in Miami and rose to be the president after 7 years. In the end even with the title it didn’t satisfy him. He yearned for his passion to be addressed. He then decided to quit the company and go back to design school in Chicago and he has never looked back. He attributes part of his success to those early years which gave him a solid foundation in running a business and learning to be organized, as well as how to be a leader. His time there helped him to be successful, combined with his ability to get things done, stay on track and produce great designs. Admitting “My passion for design makes what I do on a daily basis a joy. I love every part of it from the actual designing to the organizational portion. ” Eskra’s original education started at Tulane University in New Orleans where he received a BA in International Relations and another BA in Spanish. Going off to spend a year at the University of Madrid Complutense and the the University of Paris, La Sorbonne, he acquired a love for other cultures and world travel. While he focused on language, arts and cultural studies, these years ingrained in him a love of all things that are well designed. He later studied at Harrington Institute of Interior Design for his third degree in Design, completing it in 3 years. After graduating from design school in 1996, Eskra began working at a high end residential firm in Chicago. He stayed there for 13 years where be became a principal in the firm after only 3 years. He then decided that his talents would best be suited to work for himself, so he started his own firm, CME Interiors. While working for himself, he discovered that he could be bi coastal and started to work on projects in San Francisco. After doing this for a several years he decided that California suited him more and he moved there permanently. He now lives in San Francisco full time. In 2018, he was offered a new opportunity to join one of the biggest firms in San Francisco as a Principal, at Kendall Wilkinson Design, where he currently works. As a Principal his role is in leading a team to set the design vision for a project “I give direction to the team members, and then they go and pull it together. Once they are ready, we review it as a team.”

Expanding in his role, “Joining the firm of Kendall Wilkinson Design has allowed me to focus solely on design at this stage of my career and it has been a great decision. I love working with our team and I get to do all of the things I love.” Eskra admits that his personal routine helps to keep him focused and organized. Before work each morning he starts very early with a practice of daily meditation followed by a quiet period of reading. Moving on to three forms of exercise: cycling, weight lifting or swimming, he gets his body and mind to align for the day. In spite of this early routine, he still is able to get to the office around 9 am and works about a 40-50 hour week. In the office, he begins his Mondays in weekly team meetings setting goals and deliverables for the entire week. The Team recaps towards the end of the week to see where projects have progressed and what tasks that have been accomplished. When asked about how he begins the design process with new clients, first he interviews the client to help find out what they are hoping to achieve in their project. Concentrating on what their overall design aesthetic is, he tries to determine what aspect of their home doesn’t work for them or why they want to change it. The next step in the creative process is the sourcing of images of different aspects of design to hone in on what really speaks to and works for the client. Eskra explains that 9 out of 10 projects of the projects he has designed in his career are in high-end residential. He states “I prefer working in residential design, since I really enjoy the process of getting to know my clients and creating an environment that really speaks to who they are. During the process of designing, I take added joy in the space planning. Taking an existing home and making changes so that it works in a better way, is fun for me. But there is nothing I love more than creating homes which exhibit the personality of the clients. I design for them, not for me, so it’s a reflection of who they are on the inside.” While juggling the design director of between 8 to 10 residential projects simultaneously, in various stages of development, Eskra shares that Kendall Wilkinson Design projects are typically high-end residential and tend to be large expansive projects. In his current role at Kendall Wilkinson Design, he is only involved in the design aspect of the business given the size of the firm. “Our firm has an accomplished staff of interns, junior and senior designers and an entire accounting staff who handle all of the financial work.” In addition, they also have skilled project managers assigned to each project who make sure everyone is on budget and on time which makes his life easier. He has come to depend on those project managers for all of the timing and deliverables involved with such large endeavors. ~ continued on page 29 ~

LINDA HORNING | continued from page 12 interior designer Chris Eskra of CME Interiors in 2017 on his elegant, masterful Gentleman’s Retreat, a home office for a busy executive. In 2016, it was the darkly poetic Powder Room designed by Elle Decor’s “One to Watch” designer Beth Martin. There have been a couple of collaborations with Jaimie Belew, always fun. Before that, she worked with designer Antonio Martins in 2014, along with Katherine Jacobus, where they painted some 200+ azulejos tiles for his spectacular show-stopping Master Bedroom design. Over the years she has discovered that collaborating with clients has created countless memories and beautiful work. Compounded by how much she loves the fun, avant-garde artisanal community in San Francisco, she says that “Its rich history and diversity, it’s blend of quirky and old school elegance, coupled now with this dynamic, future-forward overlay - never ceases to amaze and inspire.” Noting that while much of her work in decorative arts is done independently, she has been honored to work with some truly talented artists and artisans. Horning adds that “The experience and the process of understanding how to collaborate, to find the perfect balance on a project, is always a journey worth taking.” info@lindahorning.com | lindahorning.com | 415.310.0589

CHRIS ESKRA | continued from page 22 Outside of work, Chris donates his time and support to the local community. He was previously the President for ASID CA North for the 2018 to 2019 year. He is a current board member of the SOMA Rotary, an organization which does community outreach programs in the South of Market and Bayview neighborhoods of San Francisco. Remarking that outside of his passion for design he loves to cook. Entertaining and creating impromptu dinner parties are a frequent occurrence in his San Francisco home. Stating that besides cooking, he loves to travel and it comes in as a close second. He is always ready to go, and he can leave on a moment’s notice. Pairing his love for travel and the outdoors, he loves to “go active” where he cycles one day, hikes the next and kayaks the following day. Stating “It makes for a more active vacation and one that really takes me away from my day to day life.” Admitting that outside of his “passion” is the love and devotion to his family. Making the effort to spend time with them whenever possible. Even though he says that they all live in different places around the country, somehow he always make it happens and especially around major holidays. When asked if he hadn’t found success in his Interior Design career what else would he do, he says he could see himself as an activist, fighting for social justice and climate policy changes. chris@kendalwilkinsondesign.com | CMEInteriors.com 415.409.2099 | KendaWilkinsonDesign.com A S I D C A L I F OR N I A N ORT H | FA L L 2 0 1 9
