Tracy Simmons, interior designer and owner of The House, shares her go-to finds for achieving a graceful lifestyle.
Just over one year ago, interior designer Tracy Simmons opened her intentionally selected home goods shop The House in Presidio Heights. The design and retail space, adorned in a breezy Californian aesthetic, features a curation of ceramics, artwork and pieces from local artisans and makers. Natural light floods the space boasting gloriously high ceilings and a magnificent fireplace made from limestone found in the south of France. Now, Simmons hopes to share her design expertise with East Coast patrons, looking to open a second The House location in Amagansett, N.Y. With an eye for effortlessly chic and luxuriant pieces, her aesthetic of subtle luxury translates into her curated shop, as well as these choice pieces Simmons swears by.
