The design inspiration for St. Cecilia was drawn from a classic, coastal Italian aesthetic. Meyer Davis infused an affluent and upscale European tone into the design, while outfitting the space with hints of antiquity and quirk. The result is a classic and modern restaurant with rustic twists that invites intimate moments within a grand collage of distinct and fresh design elements that lend themselves to the attitude of seaside comfort. A color palette of creams, natural hues and soft blue contrasted with deeper marine blues lends calm and comfort.
Built without any straight walls, St. Cecilia is light and airy, flooded by two floors of natural light, and features an open kitchen, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows paired with beautiful patchwork curtain panels. Splashes of character can be found in details like industrial dome lighting, stuffed game birds, and a massive oak and brass bookcase at the bar filled with found objects.
Earnest details have been paired alongside locally sourced recovered hardwood floors, tile-clad Romanesque columns with blackened steel casing, and custom designed seating in every area. Free floating banquettes break up the center of the room, and plush tufted banquettes hug the perimeter. A central bar anchors the space, with a curved wooden bar top and upholstered patchwork leather front.
