Even the most humble object can embody elegance when Amy Meier is part of the equation. Rancho Santa Fe’s doyenne of interior design has teamed up with her favorite artisans and collaborators for a concept home, 520 N. Cedros, situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in Solana Beach.

“This house allowed me to indulge in creativity and originality, bringing all these elements together into one beautiful space,” says Meier, whose eponymous studio and showroom is based in The Covenant. “Every single facet was either vintage or custom made, and really celebrated the creativity of the human hand.” 

Inspired by the back-to-the-land movement of Northern California’s Sea Ranch community, this Southern Californian project was designed and built to foster an intimate connection between human, home, and environment. 

With this collective vision, Meier tapped a top coterie of designers and craftspeople. The task? Blend seamlessly. 

On tap: Casey Johnson, the in-demand furniture designer and sculptor based in Asheville, North Carolina. Here, a functional object — the crate — became a new marriage of art and function. There’s also the It girl of basket weaving Emily Ridings; British ceramicist Becky Nolan, and mobile maker Max Simon

While the 520 N. Cedros project allowed creative freedom, Meier’s commitment to preserving and honoring classical traditions recently earned her a hallowed place in the design world. Earlier this year,  she won the prestigious Julia Morgan Award for Interior Design by the Institute of Classical Art & Architecture.
