If you’ve stumbled into some of San Francisco’s sleekest eateries or ogled a local start-up’s swanky office, chances are you’ve peeped the work of interior designer Lauren Geremia. The young, rising creative is making major waves with her sharp-as-a-whip business model, impressive roster of clients (hello, Instagram!), and laid-back attitude — and style. Forbes even tapped her for its recent "30 Under 30" roundup (props).
So, it was a foregone conclusion that someone with such great design sensibility would have a killer pad just waiting to be roved by R29. And, not only does Geremia have a spacious crib (um, indoor pool, garden, spiral staircase, higher-than-high ceilings), but her place also doubles as her firm’s office. Twofer! We popped in as she played dress up in her cool auto-body-shop-turned-home and work compound in Emeryville, and let’s just say — "home envy" doesn’t even begin to cover it.
