BRADY ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY
’ve dreamed of opening a store since I was a girl,” says San Diego-based interior designer Amy Meier. And she finally has, in historic Rancho Santa Fe. The front space of her eponymous shop is dedicated to a stellar collection of antiques, art and custom-designed pieces spanning 1920s marble busts to modern sculpture to Biedermeier couches, while the back is her bustling studio. “Antiquing is a weekly habit. I’ve become obsessed with finding the unusual!” she says. Visit by appointment—or good timing. 16921B Via de Santa Fe, Rancho Santa Fe, 858848-4151; amymeierdesign.com. —MAILE PINGEL
