Designer Lisa Bakamis says she spent her childhood creating what she refers to as “interesting spaces – even if it meant upsetting my parents.” A trip to San Francisco confirmed her calling. “I loved the interesting blend of Victorian style homes paired with modern, clean lined interiors, or vice-versa—an Eichler style home paired with more ornate interiors. I moved out west and enrolled at SF State in the Interior Design program to see where it would take me! I knew it was my path, as I had never in my life felt more connected with my goals, and more passionate about the work I was doing.”

Today she’s still in the Bay Area and is sharing a recently completed project, the Kentfield, CA home of two doctors, their two adorable daughters, and an equally-cute 12-year-old Golden Retriever, Sammie.

Tell us a little bit about your client’s goals for this space?

They wanted a cozy yet modern, farmhouse feel with a fun twist: a monochromatic color scheme, punched with pops of color, pattern, & texture. It was important to them that the design embodied a fun, casual and inviting atmosphere. They wanted an open floorplan, to maximize the ceiling heights throughout, as well as the natural light with as many floor to ceiling windows (and doors) as possible. Their key desires: open fireplace, unique lighting, a large gathering island in the kitchen, and a location for their baby grand piano. The clients were inspired by a lovely weekend spent with their family at the Solage in Calistoga.
