Anne Michaelsen Yahn | Designing the Perfect Backyard Oasis

Melding traditional and contemporary, beach and city, Anne Michaelsen Yahn is the founder of Anne Michaelsen Design,  a Newport Beach, California-based interior design firm specializing in defining the dynamic edge between classic and modern.  For over 30 years, Anne has created some of Southern California’s most intriguing and innovative homes,  blending her classical training, art history expertise, and love for modernism to establish an artful alchemy that is redefining interior design. Her art-influenced aesthetic weaves together an impressive, and award winning body of work that  includes a wide variety of projects, locations and architecture.

In this Fireside Chat™ episode, Anne shares about her education and classical training in both history and design, and her time in Florence, Italy studying Renaissance art. She discusses her decision to raise her family in her hometown of Newport Beach, California, and how she launched and grew her career there. Today, Anne lives in her original family home, which she designed and remodeled, completely redefining the spaces she grew up in. Finally, she shares the details of her latest Urban Bonfire project in her own backyard, and ponders the evolution of the definition of the kitchen and the outdoor space more generally.
