BEAUTY: Interiors--John K. Anderson

In recognition of World Interiors Day, here are some photos of the lovely work of San Francisco interior designer John K. Anderson.

I am crazy for this darkly traditional yet modern foyer and adjacent dining room he did for a house in Pacific Heights. It feels Jacobean and contemporary...

These two kitchens on opposite ends of the design spectrum are so beautifully realized--one is white, clean, urban, and the other, a spectacular barn-like kitchen for a home in Napa, is organic, rustic, and embracing.

And mirroring the previous kitchens, here are two bathrooms that follow the same path. The exquisite sleek white bath featuring carrera marble, a fascinating wall mural, and pendant lights with a vintage 70s feel contrast against the natural, breezy, earthy bathroom with a shower that can be opened up to the glorious landscape of Napa wine country!

And here is his offering for 2012's DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) charity event in which designers create a table setting and corresponding space. Since there is no client involved, designers are free to explore their imaginations and dream up the wildest, most unusual things they can think of. And for inspiration, Anderson used one of my all-time favorite films, "2001: A Space Odyssey." His result captures the film's final sequence perfectly. And I love the chair covers on the Starck Ghost Chairs--they seem as if they are made of space suit material.
