Prewar Meet Postwar

Truth be told, interior designer John K. Anderson did not want to live here. The designer and his partner vocalist Jimmy Kausau were trying to buy, but were outbid on the property he really wanted. “It was crushing,” Anderson says. “When Jimmy suggested we move to the Sunset, I was really against it. I told him, ‘I do not want to live there.’” But the designer was seduced by the charm of this prewar home when they stumbled on it. “It’s large, it is on a pretty block and has a lovely lawn,” he says. “I was hooked.”
