Cozy & Modern Dining & Great Room

Views for days

We're back with more from our Rye, NY, project! Last week, we showed you the photo tour of the entryway and formal living space, and today we're covering the great room and dining room!

This open, light-filled space blends styles to create a warm, modern look that we just can't get enough of. Scroll through to tour the space and shop the looks!

In the dining room, we used the surrounding, L shaped windows as our focal point. There's not a lot of room for furniture here, which allows the pieces to frame the view beautifully. Uniform chairs and one long linear light created the perfect, minimal yet warm look.


In the main living area, our client really wanted to have a lot of seating without blocking the view, which is a tricky challenge. We made sure to keep the profiles low on the furniture and incorporated a day bed for extra seating and lounging that doesn't compete with the beautiful lake below. 


We were focused on using a lot of textures in this space to add interest because of the intentional lack of color. Blending velvets, shags, tassels, and even some leather varied the feeling of the room without taking away from that overall streamlined look.

"In every single design project, our goal is to take our vision and mesh that with our client's personal style. I'm very proud that this project looks different than our last few projects, but that you can still see the Studio McGee touch in a completely different style." - Shea McGee

  1. Hello- Can you tell me where the two (swivel) blush/tan coloured chairs in front of the window are from? I LOVE this project! Kris

    1. I don’t know for sure, but have been shopping for chairs like this for months–I think they are the Gubi Stay Lounge chair.

  2. You totally knocked this out of the park!!! Stunning!

    I’m bummed that I’ll miss your talk at KBIS. I can only stay until tomorrow evening.


    1. Oh no, its not the Rico Lounge Chair from Ferm Living. Its a very similar armchair… Does anybody know which is it?

  3. This space is so balanced and beautiful. Where can I find this light fixture? I’ve scoured the internet to find it with no success.

  4. Beautiful modern yet still warm home.! Can you share the kitchen cabinet paint color? It is white with out being too bright. We are trying to find one like this that is white with out being too bright.
    Thank you

  5. In the pictures of the complete project, I am absolutely in love with bedroom that features a blue paisley reversible quilt; it is absolutely gorgeous! Does anyone know where any of those items can be found?
