Cynthia Spence Presents Teal Transitions


Drawn to the home's sweeping views of the bay, Cynthia Spence brought the beauty of the outdoors into a windowless space with a two-tine blue vestibule. Envisioned in a deep blue palette inspired by the depth of hues found only in water. Collaborating with decorative painter Elan Evans, Cynthia developed one-of-a-kind wall and ceiling treatments to adorn the hallway.   

The first side of the vestibule features a custom shimmering wall treatment and the other a liquid tin ceiling treatment with teal cotton velvet walls. The spaces are united with burnished gold light fixtures and iridescent materials that recall the ocean's reflective qualities. Throughout the space, the designer plays with contrasting elements, marrying rough and refined details, matte and shiny finishes, and feminine and masculine sensibilities.
