Inside the great room of our Home on the Bay Project…

vaulted ceilings and stained beams draw the eye up and bring an elevated feeling to the entire space. This great room area feels formal and relaxed with a blend of vintage and new materials and influences and is where our clients plan to spend time in conversation and entertaining guests. 

This home is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and was designed as a completely custom new build for our clients, in collaboration with Sausalito Construction and Holscher Architecture

The great room is often one of the spaces where we spend the most time in our homes. In designing this space, we paid careful attention to the materials we incorporated to be durable enough for our client’s family but still beautiful and timeless. We can’t wait to show you around!

“When choosing light fixtures in a vaulted room, it’s all about scale. You want something large and overscale to fill the volume of the room so it doesn’t get lost in the beautiful ceiling.”

Shea McGee

Because the living and dining spaces are connected, we decided to go with two of the same pendant for cohesion. When choosing light fixtures in a vaulted room, it’s all about scale. You want something large and over-scale to fill the volume of the room so it doesn’t get lost in the beautiful ceiling.

“The traditional touches in this space go a long way to balance some of the more modern streamlined elements.”

Shea McGee

We wanted to add depth to the color palette in the living area with timeless elements like marble, leather, and curved silhouettes.

“The best surprise in this room is the dark-painted fireplace. It sets the tone for the depth we were hoping to achieve and provides a really cool contrast.”

Shea McGee

The best surprise in this room is the dark-painted fireplace. It sets the tone for the depth we were hoping to achieve and provides a really cool contrast. There is a lot of connectivity between every element in the great room and dining room space, and the moody feeling from the fireplace carries through to the dining room and the selections we made throughout the home.
