the bay area’s geremia design.
specializing in custom interiors and art consulting, Lauren Geremia, principal designer at Geremia Design, a bay area interior design firm, invited me to share some of her recent residential projects, and i readily agreed. the firm’s work is lovely, and very often i get inquiries for local interior designers, so i thought it would fun, and helpful to share their projects. these lovely images are from two east bay projects, and geremia also curated a fantastic selection of contemporary art for both. drawing on her fine arts background for concepts and designs, lauren’s projects incorporate unique pieces, including custom furniture that’s created by both Lauren and her friends, who are fabricators and artists.
up first — this charming wood-shingled Berkeley home is located on a quiet street with persimmon trees and foliage surrounding. It was important for this young family to keep their home comfortable for their children and dogs, while providing areas to formally entertain guests. geremia selected furniture and accessories with unique detailing, and designed a custom media unit for their living room. They had an interest in starting an art collection, so they curated their space with contemporary photography working with collections from Hauser & Wirth Gallery, M+B Gallery, and Paulson Bott Press.
For the residence in Oakland, geremia wanted to give their client an updated and contemporary look for his one story Craftsmen home, including furniture with detailing that nods to the architecture of the space. their client travels frequently, but when he’s home likes to host dinner parties and cook for his friends, so they created a comfortable living and dining space that can accommodate guests, and curated an evocative selection of contemporary art that suits his taste. LED lighting and a custom designed hand oxidized brass media unit are design highlights of the project. for this project, the firm utilized pieces from Alexis Moran Furniture and Mignonne Decor, and collaborated with Canada Gallery, M+B Gallery on the artwork.
