Ann Siner always dreamed of having her own tennis court.
It’s one of the things that sold her on her $1.8 million, two-story home in Paradise Valley. Of course, the mountain views don’t hurt, either.
“Every window has beautiful views,” she said. “It’s so quiet and tranquil. It feels like we’re in the middle of the desert, but we’re in the middle of the city.”
Siner — CEO and co-founder of the consignment retail stores My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic and Well Suited — is the latest Valley executive to give an inside tour of her home for our ongoing series, PBJ Cribs.
Along with her sister, Siner started My Sister’s Closet in 1991 and now has 15 stores and 200 employees between her three concepts in Arizona and California.
Siner has outfitted much of her home and her own closet with eclectic clothes, furniture and artwork from her stores. At least 80 percent of her furniture and art is from My Sister’s Attic.
“I’m a hoarder,” she joked. “I collect animal art and I love dishes. It’s better than therapy.”
Siner loves the eclectic, Tuscan-style home designed and built for oil socialite AJ Dickey.
While she didn’t have to do too much to the impeccably built house before moving in six years ago, she hired local artist Timothy Chapman paint murals, designs and other unique touches throughout the home to make it her own. Chapman is known for his fun plant and animal art, which fits in with Siner’s love for animals.
She has five dogs and three cats, all rescues. Her furry family includes four chihuahua mixes – Elf, Chi-Chi, Sophie and Speedy, a big white dog named Ms. Magoo, and three cats – OJ, Soleil and Gracie.
As a board member for the Arizona Humane Society, she does lots of entertaining in her home and was the co-chair of the recent Compassion for Fashion event with her sister Tess Loo.
Siner’s house is the latest in our ongoing monthly PBJ Cribs series, where Valley executives give an inside look into their homes.
PBJ Cribs runs monthly with a video, photo slideshow and Q&A.
